Q: Hi Folks,
I have the above companies in my TFSA all at the same or so weight. I had BYD but sold it when it started to drop. I am still ahead in my sold price as compared to its current price. I am looking to add another or even BYD now that it has settled somewhat, can you give me your suggestion as to what you would add to this lineup - buy back BYD or can you provide some others that I can add. Thank you very much for your suggestions over the years.

Q: Over the past few months my portfolio portfolio performance has been really underperforming mainly due to short reports.

Yes, I had a 7% weighting in LSPD and a 6% in NVEI. So the drops as you can calculate has hampered performance.

If you look at the reminder of the balanced portfolio and the growth portfolio which of the holdings would you you think could be most vulnerable to another short attack?

Just to name a few:


Any others?

Q: Hi! I plan on doing something rash. Specifically, I plan on investing 95k (the entire amount of a self-directed pension plan which I can access in about 20 years), in WELL.

In terms of rashness, 0 being not rash at all (in fact quite level-headed) and 10 being extremely rash, and bordering on sublime folly, what would rate my proposed plan?

Q: Hello, my discount broker has the following product in its inventory of fixed income products:

National Bank of Canada Announces NVCC AT1 Limited Recourse Capital Notes Offering
Montreal, 14 April 2021 -

National Bank of Canada (“National Bank”) today announced that it has entered into an agreement with a group of agents led by National Bank Financial Inc. for the issuance of $500 million of Limited Recourse Capital Notes, Series 2 (Non-Viability Contingent Capital (NVCC)) (Subordinated Indebtedness) (the “Notes”).

The Notes will bear interest at a rate of 4.05% annually, payable semi-annually, for the initial period ending on but excluding August 15, 2026. Thereafter, the interest rate on the Notes will reset every five years at a rate equal to the prevailing 5-year Government of Canada Yield plus 3.045%. The Notes will mature on August 15, 2081.

Obviously, the day I need the capital (it would be in my RRIF), I need to sell the note with the associated broker commission. The interest rate today is 4.21%. Are there disadvantages in putting some money for income in this type of product (I have seen offerings from other financial institutions as well) and if so, what are these? Thanks!
