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.

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: In yesterday's question on Xebec I meant to make it a public question instead of a private one so please feel free to post. I read your answer to the other question that day and it answers mine very well. In it you mentioned the valuation gap between XBC and its peers. Could you name some of those peers. I am considering selling at least half my position in Xebec and purchasing something in the same space. Thanks.

Q: In your earnings assessment you state:

"easyfinancial is seeing more 'secured' loans (33% up from 12.7%). Average loan rate fell to 32.7%, 37.5%. As interest rates rise we would like to see this trend reverse, of course."

Can I presume increase in secured loans is the reason for reduction in Avg. Loan Rate? Personally I would rather give a secured loan
rather than unsecured. Don't you think this trend would improve loan write offs?

Q: 5iteam: Currently down about 9.5% . Would you consider GSY a decent replacement .If considering I do not currently need the better dividend and .it is looking like a tax loss would help this year , do you feel GSY at today 's price would give me more upside potential or would you suggest a better name to add to portfolio rather than add to GSY to lower my book value?Tks Larry

Q: DND seems to be getting hit hard again. Do you think this is people selling before the earnings later this month in combination with market backdrop? I think this company has been overly beat up. Even if their purchase in Australia is not allowed they are still growing at a good pace are they not?. Would you add to a position today to lower cost? I am down about 25% money not needed for 10+ years. Thanks
