Q: I purchased Baylin technologies based on a BNN guest pumping up the stock that it has world class technology and will payout over time but patience is required. Baylin now has a rights offering at $0.19 per share to existing shareholder and the current price is $0.175. The stock has been a Big Dog. What's your take on the stock ..... Is there any hope for Baylin ..... would you but this stock or should I dump the Dog and move on.
Thanks DAN

Q: Jf Tardif - for whom you have endorsed in the past as a ‘smart guy’- was on Bnn today recommend his top 3 junior gold picks that should bounce back next year. His picks were as follows: KNT, ORE, AMC.

In your answer to yesterday’s question about your favourite junior golds, you mentioned: KNT, KKR, OLA.

What do you think of Tardif’s picks and how would you rank the 5 securities in order of preference? Thank you

Q: Hi 5i Team,

I keep hearing that purchasing bonds is currently a generational opportunity given how elevated interest rates currently are and we are likely at the peak point of the rate cycle. How would you recommend approaching having exposure to bonds in order to capitalize on the opportunity?

Are there any other sectors or areas of opportunity that are out there that you think one should get exposure to in preparation of interest rates eventually coming down?

Thanks as always,

Q: Good morning.

I am down 35% on CSW.A with an effective yield of 4.4% on the purchase price. It is my cash account.

Is there really any point in continuing to hold this one? From reading answers to previous questions it does not appear there is any significant growth potential.

I think it would be best to take the capital loss and buy a BNS, BCE or ENB. Even with the loss I would make more income.

Your thoughts please.

Q: Looking to invest a portion of available cash into solid smallish-cap companies that have yet to move towards their fair value that could be reached in a more positive part of the cycle - which I am guessing/assuming is coming. Please provide suggestion in either Canadian and/or US markets.

Q: Hello, Hammond Power stock has been so strong ( $52 to $82 ), within a span of less than 2 months. We have a very small 0.60% position, started around $57. Based on your favourable view and analysts' commentary, we want to build the position up to at least 1.5 - 2%. Recently stock has traded in $78-$82 range. Would it make sense to start accumulating in $75-78 range, or wait until next quarter ? Market strategists believe that small cap stocks have a lot of room to catch up. We are just a little concerned with HPS.a stock's incredible 200% + rise, this year and a possibility of stock to falter, for any reason. Thank You

Q: Quick turn around in this stock, from a Private Placement to potentially tripling the Bitcoin rewards in the purchase of new machines. Volume seems incredible. Normally 8M shares on NasDaq, today 46M. Normally 1.5M shares on TSX, today 6.5M. I assume when high volume and a positive day is almost always a good thing? Maybe a hedge fund or ETF building a position?

Q: I have seen several analysts commenting recently on how undervalued small cap stocks are compared to larger cap stocks. Some saying we are at the cheapest levels they have ever seen for small caps. If you were to put together a portfolio of 10-12 Canadian small cap stocks intending to benefit from a return to more typical valuations, which stocks would you include? Not thinking about highest risk types, like early phase biotech, exploration stage mining companies, but rather, for high quality, profitable, growing businesses.
