I agree with malx1. Focus on the business not financial ( or tax) engineering.  You may recall when COS bought some gas assets for around $400 million  which they ended up writing off as more

In canada, the COS dividends are not highly taxed because of the dividend tax credit.  In Canada, if dividends are your only source of income, one can receive close to $60k of dividends tax more

Dividend for COS

Debt at COS is on the lower side and the payout ratio has some room, so COS will likely be able to maintain the dividend just fine. They also have a high amount of Cap-ex, so this would probably more

RE:RE:RE:RE:Scenarios for 2015

I do not see a cut in the dividend as imminent. You can add about 10% to the posted price of oil to get the price in Canadian dollars. That puts the price at around $90 which would be close to more

Scenarios for 2015
