Q: Can you provide a 'buy' list for a person wanting to deploy $200,000 (inside RRSP) with the goal of creating 5% or more sustained cash flow - as well as growing the original capital to keep up with inflatiion? We do not have company pensions - this would serve to supplement our government pensions.
Thinking, 20 stocks across all sectors @ $10,000 each (or 5%)
Also could you include 10 growth stocks (inside TFSA) for a total of $250,000 - gotta have some fun ;)
Many Thanks

Q: Hi, I noted that you decided to sell full position in TCL.a from 5i portfolios, after owning for several years. CCL.b is still held in the Balanced 5i Portfolio, with a full position. We sold our CCL.b and TCL.a positions many years ago and switched to RPI.un. The move served us well initially but for past 12-18 months, Richards Packaging unit price has continued to decline precipitously and is near all time lows. It appears that COVID period growth has fizzled and it might take much longer for the company to digest the large Clarion Medical acquisition and the resultant debt load. Company has also guided lower for past few quarters. Although they have been paying dividend 0.11 monthly for many years, but market seems to be expecting declining growth for a while. I am wondering if you notice signs that RPI is heading into a similar direction as TCL.a. Recession fears certainly are not helping. Would it be prudent to not be mesmerized with the 3% dividend and move on, so funds could be available for better Income/Growth opportunities ? Thank You
