  • A Gem In The Energy Industry: Buying Vermilion Energy For Growth And Income [View article]
    Mountainguy, that's a good question, but which I don't have the answer to. FAST Graphs and Scotia Bank's report don't show that information. I'm not too worried about that though because I believe the oil and natural gas prices are volatile. When they go down and the oil and gas companies' prices go down with them, it's time to pick up the best ones on your watch list. That's my way of thinking anyway..

    Pim,

    I'm basing this statement: "$10,000 invested in Vermilion 10 years ago would be worth about $75,000 today" on the Morningstar total return chart in the lower end of the article which includes price performance and dividends. ($75,000 - $10,000)/$10,000 = 6.5x

    Google Finance shows when VET paid a dividend. I should be more specific to say that Vermilion was an income trust before and paid distributions from 2003 to August 2010, after which it converted to a corporate structure and paid dividends. (See Vermilion's history from 2003 to present: http://bit.ly/1sxVfIF)

    Thanks for allowing me to clarify,
    Canadian

    Wilco, Vermilion should give a nice, steady price appreciation while giving us a 4% yield to wait. Now, we just need that oil price to go up...

    Atlasman, there's always the battle between supply and demand. Eventually, the cycle will turn again, and there won't be enough supply.

    BoomBoom, thanks I just recently found out about Vermilion Energy when I was researching for Canadian companies which offered DRIPs at a discount for my blog.

    It's more cautious to see whether Vermilion will increase dividends in 2015 before considering a purchase if one cares more about the dividend growth. Doesn't hurt to have it on your watch list.

    Stocks for the Long Run,

    "I would like them to increase dividends more regularly going forward" -- Yes, me too.

    "do not forget the impact of the Corrib gas field on their cash flow...I think it is scheduled to come online by mid next year." -- Yes, you're right. It's expected to come online mid-2015.

    "Unless oil prices remain at depressed levels for an extended period of time, I think VET will give shareholders capital appreciation in the mid-teens or better over the next few years." -- Agreed.

    godalmightee, that's a nice list you got there, but how many of those can be purchased on the US exchanges? I only know about RDS.B that can be bought with no withholding tax on the dividend.
