Q: I understand you can't sell a stock for a Capital Loss and buy it again within 30 Days in any sort of account whether it be Cash, RSP, TFSA.
Can you do the opposite and Buy new shares in RSP first to take position then sell the same companies shares in Cash Account for Capital Loss?

Q: Hi there, I watched a guest on market call yesterday (Jason Mann) discussing CGX and he was saying the payout ratio was over 100% and expected a dividend cut. Is 5i looking at different numbers and if so what payout ratio do you come up with. If it is over 100% would it not be a candidate for removal from the income portfolio?

On GUD you just answered a question from Brian approving of a move to transfer GUD from a regular acct into his tfsa to shelter future gains, which makes sense, but also to "crystalize losses". I thought the 30 day rule would apply in this case, would it not? I don't believe his loss would be allowed if he did this move. I know if he had a gain , he would have to report and pay cap gains on it. Funny how it only works one way in the govt's favor.

thanks Tom

Review of Raging River Exploration

DEC 18, 2017 - A smaller, growth-oriented E&P oil play. The stock has underperformed with higher oil prices, as more leveraged names attract investor attention. With best-in-class netbacks, a solid balance sheet, and a rare discount valuation, we see good recovery potential. Rating maintained at 'B'.
