Guru Investment Theses on Cenovus Energy Inc

Bill Nygren Comments on Cenovus Energy Inc - Jan 09, 2015

Another way we seek to capture losses is to replace losing stocks with similar, but equally attractive, stocks. An example in the Oakmark Fund from this past quarter was selling our remaining Cenovus (CVE) shares and redeploying the proceeds into Chesapeake (CHK). We believe Cenovus is a fine, well-managed company, but due to rapidly declining oil prices, it had fallen beneath our purchase price. Another company we believed was also fine and well-managed, Chesapeake, had fallen to a price where it appeared to us to be more attractive than Cenovus. So even though Cenovus was far beneath our sell target, we captured the loss, increased our exposure to an energy sector we thought was cheap and switched to a stock we believed was somewhat more attractive.

From Bill Nygren (Trades, Portfolio)'s 4Q 2014 Market Commentary.

Tweedy Browne Comments on Cenovus - May 06, 2014

n addition to this new position, we got a trading opportunity in Cenovus (CVE), the Canadian oil sands company, and added it to the Global Value Fund and Global Value Fund II – Currency Unhedged. It had previously only been held in the Worldwide High Dividend Yield Value Fund. We also added to our positions in Banco Santander Brasil, Antofagasta, Bangkok Bank, Imperial Tobacco, and Unilever.
