Q: Please rank the following companies for long term holds in a TFSA, with a management rating for each. (10 being the best)

Also, I currently hold SHOP and CSU.. Do you feel LSPD and TOI overlap these larger companies too much to consider a position ?

Please suggest any other Canadian companies not listed for long term holds.

Thanks for everything! Cheers

Q: I'm more a scavenger than a predator, as much interested in dividends as capital gains. Right now, however, I see opportunity in the growth sector as it collapses after years of ridiculous rises. My intention is to sell off bond funds to pick off the debris of this collapse.

First question: Now or wait?

Second question: What are your choices given this scenario, US or Canadian? Bear in mind, I'm not interested in the 5 or 10 yr wait. I'm looking at a bounce back after half the herd has jumped. I want reasonable growth prospects, a price to earnings ratio that isn't stupid and a margin that also isn't stupid. Say, for example, Apple.

You get it. I also don't expect perfection from you. No one ever got it from me.

Q: Hello guys
I am interested to do some tax loss selling for these stocks given steep drops over a year or so. Could you please weigh in on strategy and if you agree could you please propose some alternatives?

Q: Hi Peter and team,
I currently hold Transcontinental and could increase my position to a larger holding. Alternatively, thinking about selling for small loss (not crucial to do so) and switch to TFII (the sell off price is tempting).
I am low on industrials and could easily add another full position. I own Brookfield infrastructure at full position.

Do you think TCL will remain stable with relatively safe dividend? switch to TFI or add to TCL instead.
Focus is more on income, so also considering addition of EIF as I am low on industrials. I like the high dividend.
Would appreciate your comments/suggestions.
Thank you.

Q: Hello 5i

You are often asked if you could provide 2-3 "bargains" from the various portfolios - could you, given the current environment, provide
- 2-3 from the balanced / Income portfolios
- 2-3 outside of the portfolios (either Canadian or US please)
That you would consider a good opportunity to pick up at this time.
