Q: Hi Folks,
I am looking to add one of EIF, BAM or AD.UN to my diversified RRSP portfolio. Looking for a safe yield with a little growth. Is there one that stands out for your suggestion?

Q: My margin account interest rate is currently at 7.90%. With recent increase of interest rate by BOC, the rate may go up by another 0.25%. Out of the 5 stocks I am holding in this account, only two (MPCT.UN and PEY) have dividend higher than the interest rates. Would you recommend any other Canadian stocks with high dividend/ yeild for margin account.

Q: I am looking at selling HR,PMZ , AD , ( 10% total weighting) keeping CRR and buying KMP(2.5%); all held in my RRIF.
Halifax ( where I live ) is booming ,has a strong rental housing market and KMP has a significant presence there. With continued high immigration and constrained construction the metrics look good for this sector. Some markets have rent control. While concentrated in Atlantic Canada, they are also growing in ON, AB ,and BC.

Your thoughts on KMP and on this portfolio change would be appreciated. Better rental reit suggested ?

Q: I am a 60+ retired income investor,

I consider the above noted equities to be my riskiest holdings.

About 1,000 each - mostly in my cash account.

I understand SYZ reduced its dividend today and of course the issues with AQN.

Still up on AQN. Underwater on all the rest.

Looking for some advice - sell or hold by holding?

And of course any general comments would be appreciated.

Thanks very much.

Q: My Cash account. My plan is to top up existing positions in the following equities:

My thoughts were to buy in this order = LIFE (up overall, small capital loss on paper), AD (up lots, ETF-like stock), BNS (small paper loss), WSP (sensitive to economy-related projects?).

Could you please provide the sequence that you would buy these and why. The funds are available now, but I plan to spread out my purchases over time.

Thanks for your help....Steve
