Q: hello 5i:
In our various portfolios, we own DIVO, SCHD and MTUM. MOAT is not owned. I've done a fairly deep dive trying to compare the 4 etf's as I'd like to consolidate some of our single companies eg. MRK, LMT etc etc into ETFs to simplify things, and in the case of the RRIFs, to enhance yield. By my metrics, DIVO seems to come out on top on a risk/reward basis and a good balance of yield with growth. I've included MOAT as I'm interested in the concept (but not sold on the ETF). Can you confirm my findings? Would you agree, or what could you add to my findings? Is there a source (Morningstar does a good job, but not great) that would allow me to better compare risk/return of the listed etf's?
I realize there are a few questions here: take as many credits as necessary to answer as I have a lot banked.

Q: I have a small position in MDB and I'm uncertain to add to or just hold. After reviewing past answers I wonder if your views have changed. Are you more positive? Analyst reviews from Scotia McCloud are so so. To my eyes, the technicals look good - actually better than its peers. Does MDB have an advantage in the market? Would you prefer another company competitor with more torque? Thanks..........Lionel

Q: I compared the 6 month stock price performance of the following as Nasdaq stocks and as CDR's:: AAPL, AMZN, GOOG, META, & NVDA
All stocks showed better returns on the Nasdaq.
than as CDR's probably due to currency fluctuation but I am puzzled by the huge discrepancy in the gains between the 2 exchanges. eg. AAPL & NVDA show a 25% higher gain - AMZN 12.4% - GOOG 16% - META 1.7%
Can you explain?
Thanks, Hugh

Q: Hello 5i,
I am down 25% with Verizon. As an income investor, should I just hang on and collect dividends as I wait for the turnaround or sell, take the hit and get something else?

Q: Hi 5i team,

I have a growth and long term outlook and looking to trim some losers and replace with some winners. Of the following stocks, do you feel any need to hold for the long term? Also, what are some US/CAD replacements you would recommend and can you rank from highest to lowest based on overall strength?

Thanks 5i team.
