Q: What is your opinion of WEF's quarterly numbers? Down from Q2 but still pretty healthy? Market doesn't seem to like it even though the company appears to have net cash on the balance sheet, is buying back shares and pays a small dividend? Guess it is better to buy a company that is only a concept and has steady losses and MAY make money some day in the future!!

Q: Hi Peter and staff,
Thanks for the great information that you guys provide.
These are the holdings in my wife's TFSA account. I have owned CNR since March of 2020 and have done quite well but I'm wondering if this stock has reached the top of the price range and it's time to move on. The average Price Target is $165. Do you think that CNR still has upside or can you name two stocks to replace it.

Thanks and have a great day

Q: I own a fully position in IWN - with what's been going on lately with sector rotation (Growth verses value) should i see half the position and buy IWO (growth) or sell the entire position in IWN and buy IWM (both growth and value) ?

Second question I own significant holdings in WEF (overweight) WFG (1/2 position) and lastly Canfor (Full Position) My question is is it time to exit hold or reduce as lumber prices cannot stay at the present level forever?? (your comment please) maybe even sell some WEF some and go with a big house builder or even Lowes (I already own Home depot ) your guidance is appreciated

Q: Hi group lumber companies took it on the chin in 2 short days WEF went down 15% in the last 2 days as an example . Is the run over /(Time to cash in profits) or is this simply some folks taking profits. I know housing starts in the us are off but is the high price on lumber not the culprit here and also looking like lumber inventories remain low which should = higher prices for lumber going fwd. - your thoughts are always appreciated

Q: Hi Peter,
I am down a little over 50% on Western Forest. It is in my TFSA account, so I will not get any benefit as a tax loss. I am willing to hold on to it if there's a reasonable chance that in a year or two the stock will start growing and a dividend will be re-instated. Would it be more prudent to sell the stock and take the loss and buy something else? And, do you have any suggestions for a replacement?

Q: Do forest fires in the US northwest imply better prices for Canadian lumber producers, or are the effects of supply destruction outweighed by trade war dynamics? Supposing a demand surge materializes, will it be specific to west coast producers? Of the latter, do you continue to favour WFT?
