Suncor Energy is working hard towards the growth of the company. Be sure not to over look this company, its on its way up! Let’s find out where the company stands now, and where is could potentially go. Here are the details from Alex Shadunsky.

Valuation: Suncor Energy’s trailing 5 year valuation metrics suggest that the stock is undervalued as all of the metrics are below their respective 5 year averages. Suncor Energy’s current P/B ratio is 1.3 and it has averaged 1.8 over the past 5 years with a high of 4 and low of 1.1. Suncor Energy’s current P/S ratio is 1.2 and it has averaged 1.5 over the past 5 years with a high of 2.4 and low of 0.6.

Price Target: The consensus price target for the analysts who follow Suncor Energy is $43. That is upside of 37% from today’s stock price of $31.29 and suggests that the stock is undervalued at these levels. This also suggests that the stock has significant upside and is an attractive opportunity at these levels.

Forward Valuation: Suncor Energy is currently trading at about $31 a share with analysts expecting EPS of $3.81 next year, an earnings increase of 13% y/y, for a forward P/E ratio of 8.2. Taking a look at the company’s publicly traded comparisons will give us a better idea of the stock’s relative valuation. Imperial Oil (IMO) is currently trading at about $45 a share with analysts expecting EPS of $3.97 next year, an earnings increase of 5% y/y, for a forward P/E ratio of 11.3. Canadian Natural Resources (CNQ) is currently trading at about $32 a share with analysts expecting EPS of $3.69 next year, an earnings increase of 28% y/y, for a forward P/E ratio of 8.6. Apache (APA) is currently trading at about $91 a share with analysts expecting EPS of $14.08 next year, an earnings increase of 11% y/y, for a forward P/E ratio of 6.5. The mean forward P/E of Suncor Energy’s competitors is 8.8 which suggests that Suncor Energy is fairly valued relative to its publicly traded competitors.

    Renewed sponsorship agreement directly benefits Canadian athletes

    MISSISSAUGA, ON, June 19, 2012 /CNW/ – The Canadian Paralympic Committee (CPC) and Suncor Energy today announced that Suncor, through its Petro-Canada brand, will continue to support Canadian Paralympic athletes, their coaches and their families for an additional four years.

    In addition to the renewed sponsorship, Suncor also announced the launch of the Petro-Canada Paralympic Fuel Savings card which will be available at Petro-Canada stations across the country.

    “Suncor Energy truly exemplifies passion, dedication, and commitment to the Paralympic movement,” said Henry Storgaard, CEO of the Canadian Paralympic Committee. “I am in awe of the caring relationship that has developed between CPC and Suncor over last 13 years and on behalf of the CPC and our athletes, would like to thank Suncor for your support. The Paralympic movement in Canada would not have been able to grow like it has, without this partnership.”

    The renewed sponsorship extends a current sponsorship agreement from 2012 to 2016, with an investment in the Canadian Paralympic movement past the Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games, the Toronto 2015 Pan/Parapan American Games and through to the Rio 2016 Paralympic Summer Games.

    “Contributing to the development of athletes at the earliest stages, helping their dreams become reality is very important to us” said Deborah Gullaher, Suncor’s vice president of Marketing. “We celebrate the achievements of high potential athletes and support the development of these ‘up and comers’ into Canada’s future elite athletes.”

    “The McGuinty government is proud to support our outstanding para-athletes. They are champions who inspire Ontarians and Canadians on the World stage,” added Charles Sousa, Minister responsible for the Pan and Parapan American Games. “Congratulations to Suncor for stepping up to the plate and helping our athletes achieve their dreams.”

    A Paralympic partner since 1999, Suncor has extended its support beyond athletes to include coaches and families, recognizing that their support is critical to an athlete’s success. Programs supported by Suncor include:

    The Petro-Canada Athlete Family Program, which provides families with an opportunity to see their loved ones compete, through the purchase of event tickets at Paralympic Games.
    The Paralympic School Program, through which young students are able to learn more about people with disabilities, the Paralympic Games and Paralympic sports.
    The Fuelling Athlete and Coaching Excellence (FACE) program, which supports Canadian athletes and coaches early on in their careers, at the onset of their Paralympic journeys.
    Today’s announcement at a Mississauga gas station, attended by dignitaries and Suncor employees, was highlighted by the launch of the Petro-Canada Paralympic Fuel Savings Card featuring wheelchair racer Michelle Stilwell (Parksville, B.C.). A triple gold medallist at the Paralympics, Stilwell will be chasing more gold in London at the Paralympic Games (Aug. 29 to Sept. 9) in the 100 and 200 metre events.

    “It’s an honor to be the first Paralympic athlete ever featured in a promotion like this,” said Stilwell. “I’d like to encourage all Canadians to purchase the fuel savings card which will not only save them money, but help contribute funds to the Canadian Paralympic Team.”

    The Paralympic Fuel Savings card is available at Petro-Canada stations across the country. The cards are $45 for a $50 card. Using the card at the pump will save customers $0.10 per litre on 500 litres of fuel. Five dollars from every card sold goes directly to the Canadian Paralympic Team.

    Suncor Energy releases 2012 Report on Sustainability

    Jul 18, 2012 11:15:00 AM
    CALGARY, ALBERTA–(Marketwire – July 18, 2012) -

    Editor’s Note: There is a video and a photo associated with this release

    Suncor Energy announced today the release of its 2012 Report on Sustainability – a comprehensive review of the company’s environment, social and economic performance for the year. The report, themed “Perspectives: Creating our energy future together,” outlines the issues and trends we face as a company and in our industry, as well as what we’re doing and where we’re headed.

    “At Suncor, we’ve always seen this report as more than just a corporate document; our hope is that it can also stimulate constructive dialogue on the challenges associated with energy development,” said Steve Williams, president and CEO. “The genius of sustainable development is that it forces everyone to consider energy challenges and opportunities from multiple perspectives.”

    The report outlines Suncor’s four environmental performance goals and updates the company’s progress on achieving them.

    Suncor’s Goals:

    – Reduce fresh water consumption by 12% by 2015

    – Increase reclamation of disturbed land area by 100% by 2015

    – Improve energy efficiency by 10% by 2015

    – Reduce air emissions by 10% by 2015

    All of the proposed reductions are absolute, except for energy efficiency which is intensity-based. The base year for the planned improvements is 2007.

    Highlights from the 2012 report include:

    – Progress in reducing fresh water demand at our oil sands mining operations: Suncor’s gross fresh water withdrawal from the Athabasca River has declined by 50% since 2004.(i) Water withdrawal is below 1998 levels, even though bitumen production has nearly tripled.

    – Improvements in how Suncor manages tailings: Suncor is targeting a 100% increase in land area reclaimed by 2015.(ii)

    – Momentum on reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions: Suncor’s climate change action plan has contributed to a 53% decrease in GHG emissions intensity at our oil sands operation from 1990 levels.(i)

    – Steady investment in communities in which we operate: Suncor and the Suncor Energy Foundation (SEF) launched a bold new approach to investing in communities in 2011. Since 1998, Suncor and the SEF have invested $130 million in communities where we live and work.

    – Significant contribution to the economy: Suncor spent $10.9 billion(iii) on goods and services in 2011, with vendors in all 10 Canadian provinces as well as the Northwest Territories and Yukon.

    Additional Quotes:

    “We all basically want the same things – to build a strong society with vibrant communities, a healthy environment and educational and job opportunities for our kids. When it comes to our shared energy future, we need to get beyond our differences to what unites us. We need to build bridges rather than walls.”

    - Gord Lambert, vice president, Sustainability

    “We need to move beyond seeing climate change simply as an environmental issue; it’s about transforming an energy system that links us all. The challenges are complex, but the good news is that progress is possible.”

    - Fiona Jones, director, Energy and Climate Change Policy

Forward-looking statements in this news release include references to Suncor’s environmental goals, including reducing fresh water consumption, increasing reclamation, improving energy efficiency and reducing air emissions.

    Reclamation at Suncor is a carefully monitored process with two distinct components: (i) transformation of the area, including tailings ponds, into a solid material that can support vegetation, wildlife and landscape restoration, which includes landform design and oil placement; and (ii) re-vegetation in a way that the reclaimed landscape can support vegetation and wildlife as a self-sustaining ecosystem. When Suncor claims that it has reclaimed land or plans to reclaim land, the reclaimed land will have met or is intended to meet the two distinct components identified in this paragraph.
