Q: My industrial portfolio currently has a light exposure to the industrial sector. Id like to diversify by adding some industrial stocks in the US and Canada. Additionally, in the consumer sector, I already hold ATD, TOY, PBH, ULTA, and COST. To further enhance my consumer holdings, could you recommend several consumer stocks in the US and one or two in Canada? Your assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Q: Hi team. I'm ok with some risk and am 100% equities with an average 13% return per year over 10 years thanks to your team!!

Now my question. We sold an investment property with the plan to use the money to fund a new investment property which will be built in 3 this is my time frame. The money will be split between a TFSA & a taxable account, with the taxable account having about 75%.

What do you think if these for the TFSA - CSU, BN, SHOP and DOL?

These for the taxable - WSP, ENB, TFII, DSG, BNS, SU, ATD, BEPC, H, and a little more DOL?

Would you reorganize these between the 2 accounts? Alternatively, would you choose something else due to the timeframe?

Thanks a lot!

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.

I am looking at adding or making an initial purchase in the stocks listed. Could you rank these for me based on growth and sustainability. Are there any of these stocks that you would have concerns with purchasing for the short term-2 to 3 years? What would be the concerns?
Thanks, Len

Q: One more question to add for TFII. This has been a favourite stock of 5i for some time. It seems to make the list whenever someone asks for 'recommendations'. It has been falling consistently since earnings came out. I realize it is up over the year but I expect a top 5i pick to be that. One thing I find missing from the 5i service package is follow-up reporting on the top portfolio stocks when there is a miss in earnings. If no member submits a question on the stock, there is no mention of it by 5i. In the case of TFII, if I have it right, the last 'report' put out by 5i dates back to April 2022. There have been lots of commentary in the 'question' section, but nothing that brings it all together. Now I realize its only one quarter miss, but many of your customers may not see it the way. They may view it as the start of a long downward spiral. So my question is: what rating would you assign TFII today? Should it better the average market going forward or will it tread water, and if so, for how long? Where do you see it in 3.6, 12 months? Does it still make the 'list' today? When will you issue a new TFII report? And finally, would 5i consider introducing a special quick report whenever a portfolio stock 'misses' a quarter?
