Q: I have a 5% interest rate on my bank account right now and because of this I'm way more cash heavy than usual. Does it make sense to hold a larger portion of cash when interest rates are so high?

Q: Hello,

I'm investing some savings of my mother she doesn't need before many years but we avoid higher risk stocks, she is 75 years.

Actually, she owns BN, GSY, TFII.

Looking to add 1 or 2 stocks to this list. I have been looking to your porfolios and considering ATD, PBH, DOL, PBH, SHOP. CDR could be a nice opportunity with VISA for exemple.

How would you rank them for potential return on 3 to 5 years? Do you see better opportunities?

Q: Hello
I m wondering if your team has thought about a AI filtering / Help options for your Questions tab ? IMO I m noticing near 50% of the asked questions have been previously answered MANY TIMES OVER. This would allow other 5i members to save times not having to read the mulit requests on the same information.

This feature would most importantly allow the 5i moderator to focus on other NEW Questions, strategize on more / improved technical features (PA) for the platform or infact start to create member reports for the USA positions the moderators in fact hold and endorse.
This issue has really bothered me that many CDN TSX microcap positions have reports and endorsements (even on the 5i X acct) to buy while the 5iii moderatior doesnt in fact own them IE no skin in the game. FWIW many have very poor returns or get dropped from your T.A radar !

Just my thoughts as longtime PA Member

Q: Hello friends,

Still not sure how to handle NBLY's CVRs. Since they landed in my RRSP account, my broker gave me two options: to sell the security or to transfer it out.

My question though is, if I transfer them out, do I still need to sell them explicitly sometime in 2026 or they will transform (hopefully) into $0.61 per share automatically?

Many thanks!

Q: Have some cash available to add to one or 2 of the following: CLS, DOL, DOO, GIB.A, IFC, QSR, STN, TIH. For a purchase at the current price, please rank from 1 through 8, for total return over the next 3 - 5 years. I believe you are pretty positive about each of these companies. No concerns about sector allocation.

Q: Good morning,

For a moderately aggressive investor with a two-year time horizon, how might you rank the listed stocks in terms of a new purchase today?

Q: Hello 5i. I'm looking add a new growth position in a registered account, 3-5 year horizon, sector not a factor. PRL appeals for its momentum and valuation, GIB.A for its valuation and it sector, for which it seems very undervalued. They are apples and orages but which would you go with today, for growth? Thanks.

Q: Morning 5i,
You may have recently fielded similar general questioning and if so I apologize for the repetition, but here goes. Almost exactly two years ago the market was at a high very similar to its current level and I was feeling very good about my holdings, but things turned south pretty quickly - especially in tech but in other sectors as well - and it's taken me much of the two years since to recover. Granted, at that time I was holding tech names like LSPD, ILLM, EGLX, XEBEC, DOC and WELL which have now been replaced by LMN, CTS, HTA, TXF, TXF.B and I have shored up the non tech end of things with names like BNS, CM, GSY, PRL, EQB, CNQ, TOU, SU, KEY, ENB, EIF, SIS, DHT.UN and MDA but I can't help but wonder - are we approaching that precipice again and if not, why not?
Is the market fundamentally stronger now, and more resilient, than it was when everything looked oh so rosy two years ago? Presently things seem to me almost too good to be true, and I think when that's the case they often are and I would sure appreciate your perspective on the year ahead. (Right now I feel like I should all and go to cash ...).
Thanks, and please deduct as you think appropriate.
