Canadian Natural Resources: A Heavy Crude Oil Titan
Since Barron's recommendation in December 2013, Canadian Natural Resources (CNQ), one of the top 10 favorite stocks for 2014, currently performs in line with the S&P 500 index. However, most of the supporting rational behind the buy thesis still remains intact. I believe that the performance of CNQ will be outstanding given its significant free cash flow generation capacities. Sometimes an investment thesis will take more than a year for the potential of a stock to be fully reflected in the stock price. For long-term investors, one year is too short to measure the investment performance. With a longer time investment horizon in 2018 and beyond, CNQ should be able to fully unleash its potential.
