Q: I recently transferred my employer TFSA account to my trading account, so I now manage my entire TFSA. I have many solid growth names, and have XIU and BNS as a dividend/diversification play.

I am looking for a solid set it and forget it Dividend play to DRIP, and have some share price appreciation for long term.

Would BAM or FTS be your top pick for this type of thing? Can you provide say 7 or 8 of your top picks for dividend growth, business development runway, and a higher dividend? I had considered growing XIU significantly to drip more, since its diversification almost guarantees the set it and forget side of things.

Thanks for all your recent help! I'm definitely ripping through some credits this month. ;)

Q: Greetings 5i,
I am looking to lower my exposure to financials and raise that of consumer staples. This does not have to be done but should result in better diversification.
Would a switch from BAM to NWC, purely for better diversification, be advisable? I note the slightly better yield on NWC.
Thanks as always
