Q: Dear 5i
From my readings it appears that LLY,ABBV and UNH would be your favourite healthcare stocks and in that order . Would you agree ?
Between my wife and i we have 3 RRSP accounts . Would you recommend putting the number one healthcare pick LLY in all three accounts or maybe LLY in one account , ABBV in another account and UNH in the third account ?
The same applies to DOL and ATD which seem to be your favourite consumer staples stocks . Earnings forecasts look better for DOL but ATD is liked a lot as well though ATDs earnings forecast isn`t as good as DOL .Do i put DOL in all three accounts or and DOL in one account and ATD in another and a combination of both in the third account ?
Please deduct credits accordingly .

Q: I am a 60+ retired income investor,

I consider the above noted equities to be my riskiest holdings.

About 1,000 each - mostly in my cash account.

I understand SYZ reduced its dividend today and of course the issues with AQN.

Still up on AQN. Underwater on all the rest.

Looking for some advice - sell or hold by holding?

And of course any general comments would be appreciated.

Thanks very much.

Q: I plan on journalling these stocks to my US account because the dividends are paid in $US. However, I am confused as to the appropriate listing name for BEP.UN on the NYSE as it appears to be the same as the one for BEPC, namely BEP. Is that correct?

Secondly, can you switch BEP.CA to BEP.UN:CA (or vice versa) in a non-registered account without the transaction being considered a disposition for tax purposes?

Appreciate your insight.

Q: Could you tell me how you view MAL. Are the company's troubles temporary or more long term? Do you see the stock price and dividend eventually recovering with the overall market, or is this long term troubles specific to the company? Do you see the company recovering post Ukraine war? Is this a stock you would definitely be selling? Thanks.

Q: Hello Peter,
Greenland Renewables results did not seem to be that bad, but during the rally, the stock either stayed the same or declined. Can you comment please? During market call, the manager indicated BEP does not provide good value and feels taking dividends out of cash flow (instead of net income) does not make sense (unless i misunderstood). Also, i plan to hold AQN for dividend for long term and was wondering if that makes sense given your posted comments. Finally, is knight an example of company where one should not rely on past performance of a CEO? Thanks very much
