Q: hello 5i:
please comment on the following headline:

NexGen Announces Strategic Purchase of 2.7 Million Pounds of Uranium with Issuance of US$250 Million Convertible Debenture

Obviously the market didn't like it. Did they pay too much for the product? How could this help them going forward? Will the debentures be available for retail buyers and at what price? How does 5i feel about the debentures on a risk/reward basis?
Add as much colour as you feel is relevant.

Q: If BEP.PR.O preferred shares are going to be redeemed for $25 on April 15, why are they trading for $25.25 today. I own these preferred shares & am wondering if I should sell today for an extra 25 cents per share or wait until April 15. I have enough shares to cover the $9.99 commission fee. Thanks Ö Cal

Q: hello 5i:
The latest news release states that Pembina will not be redeeming these preferreds in the next 5 year period. I don't quite understand the conversion privilege, though, so could you elaborate, in simple English and advise which course you'd take if you held the shares.

Q: Thank you for the comprehensive response to my recent question regarding preferred shares. In your response you stated: "preferred shares tend to fall as interest rates move up". Should I interpret this to mean that the current high interest environment is favourable for buying preferreds since once interest rates drop the price of preferreds will increase (and so yield decrease)?

Q: My investment club was looking at buying into Triton International only to realize that it was acquired by Brookfield but still has preferred shares listed from the original company.

The original intent was that we are a buy-and-hold type group and were looking for a reliable dividend payer in the shipping industry. We are interested in still going through with purchasing the preferred A shares but the group is all pretty new to DIY and do not have experience with this type of holding.

Are there any additional unknowns that we should be watching out for here? Do these preferred shares have an expiry or carry any additional risk?
