Can you suggest better real estate companies, where the growth might be better, when the markets move up.

Wanting to dip my toe back into the market with a 2.6% total portfolio investment.

Other than GSY, X, BEP and BIP (already held) are there any other Canadian companies you would recommend that would meet my criteria? Thank you.

For growth: MG 6; SLF 4; TCN 7; LNF 5; IIP.UN 4

Q: Ignoring company size and sector diversification, can you please rank these stocks on a best to worst risk / reward basis for long term hold. I own them all in various accounts with a half position or less so my plan would be to let some go and increase position in others with better potential. Any of them you consider good buy at the moment? Thank you!
