Q: Now that there has been shareholder and court approval of the "strategic combination" of these two companies when will I see my TOG shares become WCP shares? I can't find an actual date for this to take place. It was finalized yesterday so I thought perhaps it would have happened today. Any information on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.

Q: I own both and at the share exchange price for TOG will have a loss. In order to realize that loss for tax purposes I assume I will need to sell it. Correct?
If I do sell but want to maintain a larger position in the new company, am I able to purchase more WCP right away without offending the superficial loss rules?

Q: Hi, on a risk reward basis , what are the 3 oil companies you would invest with the highest leverage to oil prices ?, this will be no more than 2% of my portfolio, so I can take the risk of losing it if they go bankrupt . My exposure to oil is rather small and limited to large companies like Enbridge and Suncor. My view is that oil will have a come back in a 3 to 5 years time.

Q: Hi group 2 questions
- I was stopped out of Byd in late March since then have been waiting for pullback to get back in, unfortunately the stock just keeps going up. I am of the opinion the market is way overbought in general and my time should come or should I nibble away ? or do you have another strategy that may work. I intend to buy 1,000 shares over the next year
2 nd question I am thinking of buying Meg + Tog due to extremely low stock price Eric at Sprott has recommended them both as top picks - I respect his opinion what do you think ?...thanks
