Q: I have significant tax losses on NFI and am considering selling to use those losses. On the other hand if we go into recession that should help with the supply issues NFI is facing and they have a large book of orders from government bodies who should be able to pay for their orders. Do you see NFI as overvalued at this time in which case I will sell or undervalued and I should hold on in case we enter recession? Thanks for your input.

Q: Good morning, 5i team!

NFI didn't perform well in our portfolio in the last 2 years. Your thought on replacing it with one of these 2: Lion Electric or Rivian. Or just get out and put in Magna or Linamar instead for auto parts instead. Thank you!

Q: Hello 5i Team,
In the past month alone NFI has received contracts for almost 600 buses (hybrid/electric) according to the headlines on seeking alpha. Do these contracts actually translate into bus sales?

What is keeping this company down over years? Is it that the dept is to high for the market or that the acquisitions simply have not panned out?

Thank You,

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.
