Q: Hi everybody,
I know you donít trust much analystsí price target, but Iím still trying to get a picture for NFI.

Your Market Data shows recommandations from only 3 analysts 1Buy/1Hold/1Sell. TipRanks have 7 (4B,2H,1S), Yahoo Finance shows 8 analysts (6 Buy in November), BMO Investorline gives at least 6 recent price targets (mostly cuts). This is a bit frustratingÖ How often are the Market Data recommandations updated ? Can we rely on up to date Key Ratios?

Q: Hello,
Out of the three companies, can you please provide which one is a better buy and why? New Flyer seems to get contracts, but i am assuming their update on supply chain issues and now an offering is holding the stock back. However, would appreciate your thoughts in which one you think will do well. Thanks very much.

Q: I am looking to offset some capital gains received this year from PEO and PHO (thanks!). Currently I have the following holdings in a loss position, in order of dollars down: TDOC, TV, XBC, HAL, XEG, NFI, SQ, TECK.B, XTC, WELL, ENGH, PLTR. I would need to sell the first six to fully offset the gain, or could sell more if using those in a smaller loss position. How would you rank these holdings in order of selling, and which of these would you look to buy back after 30 days (if any)? Note that these are held within a broad portfolio that I am also looking to consolidate.

Q: Hello,
I thought Nvei's results were very good. Why is the stock tumbling? Would you add at this time to Nuvei for full position of 5 percent? What are your thoughts on ATS automation and Trisura and Auto Canada for longer term? Also with big push on EVs, would it be a good time to buy NFI? Thank you for the service.

Q: Hi 5i,
I hold NFI in a reg'd account where I endeavour to buy and hold. A while ago it was up nicely but then lost all its gains and more when the revised guidance came out. Now, with its recent soft recovery and dividends accounted for it's back in black, slightly.
I'm not optimistic about NFI's next couple of years and would like to see better capital gain and dividend income from the funds currently in NFI, and I'm considering WJX as a replacement. What do you think of this move and, if not WJX, can you suggest another one or two names for me to consider?
Much the same circumstances and question regarding AQN, which I think is somewhat stale these days and may be for a few years to come. I'm considering CPX as a replacement and would appreciate your opinion on that move, and your suggestions of one or two other than CPX if you think leaving AQN behind is wise but CPX might not be the answer.
Thanks and please deduct accordingly.

Q: Hello Peter,
Whenever i look up the quote for NFI group, there is normally a news release of more orders and yet the stock hardly moves. With the EV craze, I would have expected more from this company with respect to rise in stock price.. Is there a better pick in this industry?
