Investment Q&A

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

Q: Does the increasing tax rate on capital gains meaningfully affect residential real estate companies with mainly Canadian properties? This might also affect grocery-anchored REIT's since they often build apartments on their properties.

Q: I hold both ZRE and XRE. I selected two ETF because their Top10 holdings looked different enough. ZRE has also a better yield. Do you see a better growth from one of them?
Would you have on-hand a breakdown of their holdings (industrials, residential, retail, office). Could these ETF have private holdings? Thanks a million.

Q: If you held 5 or 6 real estate type positions in a diversified portfolio, and wanted to consolidate a bit, would you be in favour of selling a smallish position in SVI and add to medium sized positions in DIR.UN and/or GRT.UN. If yes, would you add to both or just DIR.UN?

Q: I am sitting on some of this at a higher ACB and have had it for some time. I like the income, but the price has been in a decline. The culprit high interest rates with them being heavily leveraged, looks like they aren't growing enough to overcome. Looks like they will not be increasing the dividend this year which is not a good sign given their history. I do have patience and some cash. I also think they have a solid tenant base, the business seems to make sense. Would you buy down hanging on hope of interest rate cuts or would you dump and look at another name?
