Q: Morning Peter & Team,

I know your long term outlook for CAE is positive. Have held it for some time and although technically it has shown higher lows and high highs over the past year, gains in the last 10 months have been moderate. Especially when compared to some of it's industrial sector piers such as ATA & TFII the later of which has a dividend as well.

I am thinking of switching up to one of your other (previous) recommendations. Would you consider this a good idea? Or would you suggest I continue with my patient hold of CAE?

Thanks for all you do.

Q: Hi Peter, Ryan, and Team,

Nice report on AND. Just wondering if TFII operates in the same space. We've done very well with TFII (thanks, 5i) but are a bit low in Healthcare. AND looks promising, but want to make sure that it's complementary to TFII.

Thanks for your insight.

Q: I have enough money to top up one of my positions and bring it closer to 5%. These are the candidates. I am diversified, but maybe a little tech heavy. I have Topicus at 5% All are in my TFSA, so a growth tilt is appropriate. But I'm stuck in analysis paralysis. Does any one of these jump out at this time as a particularly good candidate to top up. I know you like them all, so I guess it is a bit like picking your favourite child. But go ahead and pick. Your insight will be appreciated, and much better than me flipping a coin.

Q: Earlier this year we created an equal weighted 'balanced' portfolio of 30 Canadian companies in a non-registered account. Most were chosen from companies either covered by a 5i research report or included in a 5i model portfolio. The remainder were chosen, based on the 5i Q&A section, from what appear to be 5i sector favourites. All purchases in the portfolio are made with the intent to be long-term holds (10+ years).

Our intent is to increase our investments in the 30 companies over time. We have recently increased our positions in BIPC and MG. At this time we would like to increase our investments in 10 of the remaining 28 companies. The intent is to increase the remaining 18 in approximately 6 months. Which 10 would you add to today? Please rank them, include a small blurb explaining each choice and indicate an approximate buy price. Thanks!

Q: Hi
I've got a 3% position in CAE currently in my RRSP. It's done well for me over time, but I'm thinking about selling it. If I do, I'm considering TFII as a replacement, if I stay in the industrial sector. However, I'm also considering GSY as an alternative. I'd like more momentum and a bit of a dividend, and without too much risk. What is your opinion on selling CAE and replacing it with either TFII or GSY? Which of TFII or GSY would you prefer at this time?
If you have another suggestion I'd appreciate hearing it. Thanks!

Q: Hi 5i Team,

I have been trying to manage close to the BE Portfolio since the start of 5i and I want to continue.

I have some weightings I could top up now and I want to check if we should be adding to these today given recent run ups or if there are other names in the BE portfolio you would suggest as better adds today?

The names I was looking at first were PBH, TFII, KXS, and SIS but would like to hear if there's other names in the BE Portfolio we should be more excited about for new money today?
