Q: Hi 5I
I have $180,000 split evenly amongst above companies in RRSP. I was going to begin withdrawing $10,000 every year and am looking for strategy to draw down to maximize growth of account. Is there a ranking of companies to sell first, or take a bit from each? I like them all so tough call for me. Appreciate all your advice since my initial membership in 5I.

Q: Hi 5i Team.

Really enjoy this service.

I am primarily an income investor and will be retiring within the next few months.

No pension.

Need to make some adjustments to my non-income holdings.

Have most of the Income Portfolio.

Looking for 5 - 10 new ideas. Preferably with a little higher yield but still reasonably safe and enough growth to keep up with inflation.

Thanks very much for you help.

Q: Hello. I continue to see positive comments from 5i about growth potential for GSY. I would like to add it my financial sector but that would require selling one of my current financial stocks in order to maintain the assigned weight. Of the stocks listed can you put in order the stocks you might sell to a\quire GSY. Alternatively, does it make sense to keep the current stocks, which are all doing well and for the most part paying dividends and just add GSY, changing the weightng of the portfolio?

Q: The listed companies each carry about a 1% weighing in my portfolio. There are no tax implications and I am positive on all of these. I am trying to reduce my overall holdings to about 25. I believe each company has its merits but I will never hit a home run with such a small investment. Can you advise which ones you would keep and consolidate or perhaps suggest something else to put all of the proceeds toward.

Thank you

Q: I have held Alaris pre conversion for some time now in a taxable account . Since the conversion to a UN , now tax wise I am wondering whether it makes sense to even hold it in a taxable account. I am considering selling for those reasons.
Could I ask for your opinions in regards to AD.UN specific composition for Canadian income tax purposes?

Q: Hi Guys
I have owned Onex for quite a time but it is quite a bit of it's long time high of $100 and really languished this last year. I know the Westjet picture (small part of them really) and their time frame is long but even selling of some of their investments has not really done anything to Onex's stock price. I am wondering of swapping Onex out for Alaris given they both invest into private companies, or own them. The dividend would be nice too, although not really the main reason I would switch. Looking out 5 years and total return, which would you own?

Thanks so much
