Investment Q&A

Not investment advice or solicitation to buy/sell securities. Do your own due diligence and/or consult an advisor.

Q: Good afternoon. I hold 2 companies from each major sector of the economy. In the Industrial sector I own shares in CNR and CP.

I am considering selling CP and replacing it with TFII for diversification purposes.

Although the capital gains hit would be large as I have held CP for over a decade would you consider this to be a wise move or a foolish one?

Many thanks in advance.

Q: Just looking for an opinion,

In what scenario does this ever get back to it's glory days before the oil fallout years ago? I have owned this for sometime in a TFSA and wondering if I should just keep holding due to not being able to harvest tax loss or take the loss and move the proceeds into something else in a different industry where over time I could recoup the loss.

Q: Hi, My respected 5i team
During the March 2020 market correction, your team provided a special report which was a big help for me to take advantage of the market correction. I bought some solid names at a discount as the report recommended. Are you guys still doing this kind of special report in the future?
Could you please recommend 5 solid names to buy in Canadian and US markets respectively if there is a market correction again? Do you think it is a good time to buy them now during the current market  drawdown?
Pls list the names in the order from your most favorite to the least. Thanks in advance!

Q: Hello,
I’m 32 and currently in the early stages of my investing journey with a long time horizon and medium-high risk tolerance.
My question is about “safe” dividend stocks set as DRIPs. At this point is it worth holding onto equities such as Enbridge, Bell, and Algonquin that are typically held for income or should I focus more on high growth given my 20+ year time horizon? I currently hold around 20 stocks and these stocks comprise 15% of my portfolio. They are also the only stocks I hold in the energy, utilities and telecom sector.
Thank you
