Good point, it would take very little profit-taking to wipe out this gain. I, like you, am in it for the long haul and do not trade short term. I am more concerned with how much the dist. will be next year. Good luck to us both.
I could be wrong on this, but I believe the more we get "volatile geopolitical situation" with "unreliable oil countries" the higher COSWF will go in price. Think Russia, Nigeria, Venezuela, & Iran & ask yourself this question.(How "reliable" are they as reliable oil partners to USA in next ten years? / I say not very reliable) I left out Saudi Arabia whose Royal Family is corrupt & could be overthrown & replaced by anti-western leadership group which might not be very reliable on supply of oil.
China is going around world trying to get these countries to supply oil to China versus USA. Cuba is drilling for oil off its coast with help from China USA & Canada have had "strategic energy partnership" over the years & need to continue it.
I agree with your comments and would add that the Oil Sands are now widely known as the largest and longest lived oil reserve left on the planet, and as such will attract more and more interest from fast growing economies around the world. This will be particularly true when there is uncertaintly about current suppiers like Iran.
