*New Post* New Suncor Purchase

Suncor

Hello everyone, what’s everyone been up to? For the last little while things have been quiet for me on the investing front. However last week I decided to make a purchase and it was to add to a stock I already hold. I purchased more Suncor Energy for my TFSA account. Suncor was trading at a good price in my opinion so I decided to buy more of this quality company.

What Is Suncor Energy?

Suncor Energy Inc. operates as an integrated energy company. The company primarily focuses on developing petroleum resource basins in Canada’s Athabasca oil sands; explores, acquires, develops, produces, and markets crude oil and natural gas in Canada and internationally; transports and refines crude oil; markets petroleum and petrochemical products primarily in Canada. It operates in Oil Sands; Exploration and Production; Refining and Marketing; and Corporate, Energy Trading and Eliminations segments. The Oil Sands segment recovers bitumen from mining and in situ operations, and upgrades it into refinery feedstock and diesel fuel, or blends the bitumen with diluent for direct sale to market. The Exploration and Production segment is involved in offshore operations off the east coast of Canada and in the North Sea. The Refining and Marketing segment refines crude oil and intermediate feedstock into various petroleum and petrochemical products; and markets refined petroleum products to retail, commercial, and industrial customers through its dealers, sales channel, other retail stations, and wholesale customers. The Corporate, Energy Trading and Eliminations segment operates wind power facilities located in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Ontario; and engages in marketing, supply, and trading of crude oil, natural gas, power, and byproducts. The company was formerly known as Suncor Inc. and changed its name to Suncor Energy Inc. in April 1997. Suncor Energy Inc. was founded in 1953 and is headquartered in Calgary, Canada.

Financial Stats

Here is a list of some financial stats that I found interesting and thought I would share in case anyone is interested in investing in Suncor.

  • 52 week range   $35.53 – $48.30
  • PE Ratio 10.97
  • Market Cap: 61.31B
  • Annual Dividend $1.68 ($0.42 quarterly)
  • Dividend Yield 4.32%
  • Payout Ratio 43.2%

The Purchase

Last week I purchased an additional 28 shares @ $39.03. These new shares plus the ones I already owned will give me a total of 49 shares. These new shares will provide me with $47.04 in annual forward income.

It is my current goal to buy enough shares of Suncor to be able to drip new shares every quarter.

So fellow investors what are you buying these days? Please feel free to let me know in the comment section.

Thanks

Matthew

    1. Hey Jordan thanks! Yes I am going to have to double my investment if i’m going to drip a share as I will receive $20.58 every dividend payment from my current shares.

      At the moment I believe Suncor is focusing on greening their properties then focus on renewable/green energy in the future. In Sept they announced that they are investing $1.4b in two new cogeneration units at its Oil Sands Base Plant. They will replace the coke-fired boilers that will help reduce emissions by 25%.
