Q: PPR recently sent out a proxy vote. Upon signing into the website, I changed the “Appointee” to me. It stated: You or your designate must attend the meeting for your vote to be counted.” This is the first time I’ve seen such a requirement. I disagree with the statement. Last year with Covid a lot of companies wanted their shareholders to stay away from meetings, yet their votes counted. Now PPR is withholding a shareholders vote, due to mandatory attendance. Would they have a company bylaw to allow this and Is it setting a precedence?

Q: I bought into the story and concept of Topicus being a Constellation 2.0 junior. However, the S.P. performance has been anything but. Can you provide the top 3 reasons to own this (I am currently down 25%), I am hanging on for the simple fact I do not want to miss out for when this changes course. What timeline should I have in mind for better days and performance.

Q: Hi 5i Team,

Could you please give me your analysis and opinion of MTL and DXT? How do you see the next few years playing out for them in a high inflationary environment and rising interest rates? Do you see a place for them in a well diversified, higher risk, income oriented portfolio?

CRP has also caught my attention with food prices the way they are and no let up in sight. What is your current opinion of CRP? Do you think it might be good holding for a trade until food prices show some sign of stabilizing?

Many Thanks for the Great Service,

Q: Could I get your comments about buying PDI.UN in an RRSP? The price has come down substantially (as might be expected), it is trading near its NAV, and it appears to have never missed a dividend. I recognize the high fees, but the 12% yield has caught my attention. What do you think of its holdings (in general and how risky), do you think the dividend is sustainable under current conditions, and would you see the price moving back up a bit if rates don't go much lower? If buyable, would you buy now or wait a bit longer on rates.
Thank you
