ENCANA CORP. $50 (Toronto symbol ECA; Conservative Growth Portfolio, Resources sector; SI Rating: Average) gets over 75% of its production from natural gas. The recent gas price drop has cut EnCana’s stock price from a peak of $65 in October 2005.
Gas prices may move up again during the winter. EnCana’s deal to merge some of its oil sands assets with ConocoPhillips also cuts its risk.
The stock is reasonably priced at 11 times earnings and 5 times cash flow.
EnCana is a buy.
