Probably not the only problem but PWE is currently somewhat a victim of the current hype about the US badly named 'Fiscal Cliff'. It is heavily owned in the US and the talk of a dramatic increase in taxes on Dividends and capital gains taxes has people unloading it until there is some clarity.

I own a lot of it bought in 2009 in DRIP mode in wife's TFSA. I keep ending up with a whole lot more shares every quarter but probably really should keep a closer eye on it.

Another problem for all of our western crud producers is the discount on WCS (Western Canada Select) due to the glut in Cushing? We really need to find an non-US outlet for our oil or continue to suffer the lower prices.

But the differential is twice as painful for producers pumping oil out of Western Canada.
