Q: Alaris reports on March 13. I already have a mostly full position (relative to it's market cap and risk; not a full position like some of the blue chips I own, like BCE, BNS, FTS, RY, TRP, etc.), but am considering adding a bit more at this level. Good USA small cap exposure with a great dividend and good upside potential (at least I think so).

Add before they report or after? Ya I know....don't add based on one quarterly report. Your current thoughts on Alaris please.

Q: Good day team,

A few companies I'm invested in are in a loss position so far.

AQN 42% loss
AD 16% loss
CJT 22% loss
GSY 22% loss

At this point which stock do you think I should keep, which one sell, and which one replace and with what?

I'm retired and 73 years of age.

Take as many points as needed.

Thank you
John G.

Q: Trying to reduce my number of stock holdings. Have identified these 11 as small positions that can be eliminated. Intending to use the cash to add to stronger holdings. I try not to think of a stock as a "hold". There are lots of high quality names you can invest in that look better than a "hold". If you were doing a portfolio clean up, and held these as roughly 1% positions, are there any that you would be reluctant to sell?

Q: Hello,

I would appreciate your thoughts on how the arrival of new diabetes/weight loss drugs (Ozempic, Wegovy and Mounjaro) might potentially impact the future revenues at Body Contour Centers? Could the advent of these new medications not have a significant potential impact on the existing players in the weight loss space?

Are you able to provide an estimate of what proportion of Alaris Equity Partners' existing annual income is attributable to their investment in Body Contour Centers?

Thank you!

Q: With the apparent impending credit tightening (particularly in the U.S.). It seems to me that this presents a great opportunity for alternative lenders to attract new business at better margins. What do you think? What "push back" do you have here other than the fact that these company's own access to capital may be constrained themselves. I have mentioned 2 companies above here, but feel free to comment on others if you have any advice on other opportunities. Thanks

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 ?
