Q: Telecomm seems to be performing well, relatively speaking. How would you rank these telecoms for growth, dividend safety and inflation-resistance, in general? Are there other telecoms you prefer? THANKS!

Q: Please recommend, especially during this uncertain economic times, two to three Consumer Staple stocks to hold, again for longer than 5 years. My aim is 5 % yield but I do understand that yields for good quality companies are usually low. I would be happy to invest in those with really strong growth down the road. This is what I have compiled with: NWC, PBH, ATD, EMP.a, L, MRU. By all means, please include ones that you feel would serve this purpose.
Thank you again for your insight. Roger

I am looking for your recommendations on good dividend paying stocks. Stocks which have come under pressure due to market conditions. Stocks that are low risk and do not have high debt. I am mostly interest in income stocks but would also like a stock that would give me some capital gains. I have listed these and would appreciate rating these. Please also provide me with any other tickers you feel would fit my needs here which I may not have thought about.

Thank you.

Q: I would like to increase my holdings in telecom stocks. I currently have BCE and would like to know if you would recommend buying more BCE. Or buy one or two other telecom stocks, such as T, RCI.a, QBR.b, or etc? Again, primary aim is income and secondary is balance equity. I plan hold them for more than 5 years. Thanks, Roger

Q: Sadly, APPS is down 65% since I purchased it and now is a mere pittance of my TFSA (.65% of my entire portfolio). Should I hang on and hope for better things? Or sell and use the proceeds to top up an existing holding? If the latter, would you top up NVDA or APPL?

I am also down 25% on LIF, which I purchased primarily for its generous dividend. Can you please explain why the dividend fell so steeply last quarter? And looking into that crystal ball you keep on your desk, what would anticipate will happen to both the stock price and the dividend going forward? Thank you.
