Q: Hi 5i,
I have a small position in Fairfax India holdings. I have made a gain but disappointing for the length of time I have had it. I can still be patient for possibly 5 more years or longer. Would you recommend holding this, or consider ETF's of India holdings that you had recommended in March of this year (ZID or INDY) or other ETF?
Should be on the conservative side of investing.

Thank you for the great service

Q: I am finalizing RRIF portfolio focusing on safety and yield. I am trying to decide between Canoe Income fund and SLF. Performance-wise they look similar to me but with EIT having a higher yield. I would value your advice on selecting one of these unless you have an even better suggestion then that would be welcome as well. Thanks for all you do! Dan

Q: As a retired income investment, I have enjoyed the steady increase in the value of these funds over the last years as well as a good dividend. In fact they tended to stay steady every time the market dipped. Until lately. Both have seen daily drops unseen before. Has anything changed or is it the general skittish market right now.

Q: When I asked about PDI back in July 2023, you stated you would be fine holding it for 3-9 months. I am still down about 20% on it. It is currently at/near the same price it was last July. I'm liking the high monthly dividend payment but am concerned how long it can last. Do you think the high dividend is sustainable (and if not how much would you expect it to be cut?). As well, looking into 2024 with interest rates likely dropping marginally, a soft/no landing scenario, and all other things considered for 2024, do you think this one can approach $22-$23 in 2024? Any other nuggets of wisdom regarding PDI are welcome .....

Q: Hello Folks:
Currently we own solid positions in CIC.TO AND MFC-PK.TO and interested in both MAERSK and USA because of dividends (Maersk 19.24% and USA 9.98%).
What is your opinion of these companies, security of their dividends, growth etc. Maersk is one of the world's premier shipping companies although one questions sustainability of such a rich dividend.
All The Best
