Q: Hello, About ten days ago, shortly after the merger news, 5i was indifferent between the two stocks. Is this still the case, or do you have a preference?

Secondly, if you choose AEM, I already hold it at a 30% loss, but continue to like it, more so after the news. My crystalized cap gains for the year and scant available losses(kudos to 5i for their part in that) have me considering buying KL and selling AEM. Do you see any timing or other issues with that approach from an investment point of view? If so, would you advise to stick to the traditional sell AEM and buy back 30 days later approach if still liking it?
Thanks,
Tim

5i Research Answer:

We would still be indifferent and would be fine with either going forward. Given the merger and share exchange, they are even more similar. We might go with KL if one wants to sell for tax-loss selling then purchase before the 30 days.
