Q: Hi 5i,
In an otherwise balanced portfolio, I'm looking for some ideas for my TFSA.
Current holdings are KXS, LULU, HPS AND ATS.

I'm open to adding to the above names but was wondering if you
could you please recommend 10 Canadian and 10 US stocks that you feel would work well in a TFSA at this time in the market.

Q: Reading recently one of members question about rating growth and risk of DOO, HPS and MG, how about adding ATS to the list as well which hasnít behaved well lately. Could you please rate them all together ?

Q: Hello,
My holding of Waste Connections has increased substantially in value. The stock price is slipping and there seem to be a number of concerns with debt and return on capital. Your detailed comments would be appreciated.

Are there some industrials with better future prospects? What industrials could WCN be replaced with and why would they be any better?

Thank you,

Q: I know you like all of the above for a TFSA - so do I - but need to raise some cash and am struggling with what to sell - is there one you would sell first? or maybe trim 2?

put as private but make public if you wish

Q: I have cash in my TFSA and am thinking the above stocks will experience tax loss selling pressure and I can add to my existing positions at attractive prices for long term holds.
Do you agree that these stocks will be subject to tax loss pressure and is now a good time to buy, wait a bit, or average in each week for the next month or so.

Q: hello 5i:
have a small position in ATS and have read the comment on their quarterly results. I am much more interested in what management had to say about going forward. Was there anything in the conference call (did they have one?) that we, as investors, should be hearing? I do want to increase to a full position but need a little more clarity on their vision and outlook.

Q: Dear 5i
Could you rate in order of preference the listed stocks for inclusion into a TFSA account . Are there any other stocks you might include on this list that are good at this time for a TFSA account ?

Q: Hello 5i,
Just had a look at ATS balance sheet which your report on Sept 5th suggested had improved. Can you help me understand how the more than doubling of "goodwill and other intangibles" which in march of 2020 were $800+million, compared to march 2023 were $1.7 billion will impact the company going forward? How did "intangible" assets grow so much and does this typically inflate assets on the Balance Sheet? Total debt in that time frame has also doubled. With reporting due next week(?) is there anything else you can shed light on for we shareholders?
Does ATS usually meet or miss on numbers?

Q: Hello, Raymond James dropped the price target of ATS to $61 from $67 ( Still a BUY ), in a preview of the quarter, yesterday. Not sure if other analysts on the street will trim estimates/target, leading to Nov 8 release of results. Is this a hint of what could be in the store ? Stock has been weak over past several weeks, perhaps, in anticipation of a soft quarter. What's your take ? Thank You

Q: What are your thoughts on GDI? I've been holding in my TFSA for around 3 years and up 12%. They made a purchase last week which looks good. Its more or less been flat and slightly down for the last little while. I know you like it and still hold but I'm looking to high grade this stock for a better alternative if there is one.† Looking at total return 5+ yrs, what small/mid cap stocks would you rank above this one currently that I could swap with? Some names that come to mind are TVK (not held) and HPS.A (holding already).† So I would sell GDI and buy one of the others, which do you like currently that have greater growth potential? If any others in Cad or US, please offer your suggestions.

Also quick thoughts on NVEI (held in TFSA), time to cut it loose? Thanks!

Q: Could you please rank the above stocks for holding/purchase right now please? Thank you

Q: ATS is something that 5i likes. On April 6 of this year it was 52.40 and now today Oct. 17, it is $52.50. You know a lot about this company. I own it because I am a long time member of 5i - do you see things in their profile that I would not have access to? You like QSR and it was a recent pick on BNN. I own it at higher prices. From what I have heard, I am thinking of adding more. Your opinion would be appreciated. Thanks so much.

Q: I have 1/2 positions in both RTX and LMT and was considering adding to one of them. Which one would you add to at this time? Alternately, do you have another suggestion for the industrials space that you like better than these two companies? thanks, J
