Q: 3i Group PLC: ticker TGOPY ADR, pink sheets.
Not sure if you wish to provide any high level comments on this foreign company.
Long term price performance looks very good and it seem like a good valuation to me. Do you seen any red flags? Any comments would be appreciated because it seems like a good 2% position to have in a TFSA. Thanks

Q: Given the current direction of the Canadian economy, my goal is to focus the majority of my investments in the US. According to Portfolio Analytics, currently 53% of my portfolio is US, 46% Canadian (the remainder being international). I believe my US holdings are significantly under-rated given the Canadian stocks I hold. I would appreciate ballpark figures regarding the US/international component of the following TSX listed stocks: WSP, TFII, BIPC, BEPC, BAM, BN, and HPS.A. This will enable me to get a better handle on what my actual US/international holdings are. Thank you.

Q: I had purchased this in a Canadian TFSA. Just reviewing my investments and I must have asked for this to be transferred to the US TFSA due to dividends being paid in US currency. However, the cost is listed as the Canadian amount! No wonder it's showing I'm underwater. but I don't think it correct. Have you or your readers come across this problem before?

Q: Good morning. Would it be fair to say that CSU is basically the tech version of BN? BN has, what six or seven children and CSU now has a set of twins. Do you see CSU continuing to give birth to more children?

And if so, at what point would you rather just own the kids and let the parent go, if ever?

Q: Help me!
My wife and I have a competition running in our TFSA accounts, which we started a few years back with the same cash balance. She is using the classic passive ETF strategy, except we got pissed off with bonds and moved that portion into QQQ/ICLN (TDB900, 902, 911 & QQQ, ICLN)
I am actively (quite low turnover) trading CDN and US stocks and ETF's
She is handing me my ass!

My current holdings in the CDN account are ATS, BAM, BN, GSY, KXS, XIT, PBH, WELL, WSP and US account AAPL, TFII, VEEV

Ignoring sector allocations (which i still need to look into), please advise any Buy, Hold or Sell recommendations for my current holdings with a 5 year horizon

Q: Hello 5i Team,
I hold these companies between two TFSAs and have room for two more, small cap, Canadian growth companies. What might you suggest. Sector consideration not an issue although I do recognize the importance of diversification.
Thank you
