Q: Good morning!
As a dividend investor, I am noting that BNS now pays 1.25% higher dividend than EIF. I hold full positions in each. I am considering selling EIF and doubling down on BNS. I see BNS as having - as well as a higher dividend - an upside in the order of 50% when the economy stabilzes and perhaps the Ukraine war is over. I do see growth from EIF, but think that in a 2 to 5 year window EIF might see steady growth with perhaps a maximum of 25% upside, seemingly less than the bank. What do you think of this reasoning, and are there any reasons why this might not be a good idea? This swap would be in registered accounts (50% TFSA and 50% RIF), so there are no immediate tax implications.
Thanks! ... Paul K

Q: I have owned these stocks in my non-registered account for 12 years except ETF IGM, T, CTC.A (bought 2 yr ago - up a fair bit). T bought 5 years or so ago. GSY, MFC & GRT.UN a year ago - all 3 up nicely. I buy dividend growers for the most part. I have been retired for quite a while - so, more interested in dividend growth. Large portfolio with banks 40% of total. Do not worry about market downturns: add to positions when they go on sale -08/09 and 2020. Sitting on cash and looking to add to these positions . Do not own ENF.CA - typo. Suggestions?? IFC 5-6 years up 220% including dividends.
