Q: Hi, I have a 2.5% position in SCHW (down 25%) and am looking to sell while keeping exposure to the financial sector.

MKTX and CME score highly on my evaluations and others listed are pretty decent too. Curious on your thoughts on a suitable, safe replacement.

This is in my LIRA and I'm looking to hold for 10+ years (was also the case for SCHW, but I'm concerned wrt their exposure from their long term bonds).

Q: Hello, I have too many financial stocks and I would like to sell one of the above but I'm not sure which one to let go of. I was thinking of letting X go or one of the Brookfield stocks. Your thoughts please, I feel I can get enough diversification with only four stocks in this sector. Thank you in advance.

Q: Hi,

I have about 8% of my portfolio in WPM, LUN, DPM and FCX. Wondering if you think I should add 3% in steel?

If so, which US or CDN companies would you recommend? STDL seems to have the best long term returns but I've heard their earning are expected to go down next year?

Q: At 21.55%, I'm overweight financials. My problem is that I like all my stocks in this sector: BAM (2.9%), BN (4.9%), GSY (4.4%), X (5.2%), V (4.2%). In addition, all save V are in a non-registered account and would incur capital gains when sold.

In my view, all will do well when the market turns. Is there enough difference in terms of their drivers than I can continue to hold all 5? And if you would suggest I (reluctantly) trim, which stock(s) would you reduce? Thank you.

Q: Good morning. I watched your interview with Kornel Szejber from Build Wealth Canada. On it you discussed immunization which was most helpful. You also mentioned that you thought of CNR and CP as set it and forget it stocks. With that train of thought in mind which other canadian dividend stocks would you put in this same category? If I was to purchase 10 dividend stocks to take advantage of the dividend tax credit in my non registered acct which would be my main source of income which stocks should I consider.
