Q: Which companies do you think might not survive the crisis and it's better dumping now while they still have value? I think you have mentioned the oil producers and what about restaurant stocks? I just listed a few examples here of both.

Q: I have been purchasing these three oil Companies this month with a view Tax Loss Selling will end on Dec 27th, Oil Prices moving UP, world economies are improving, demand for Oil will increase, China USA Tariffs will come off, Trump will remain as President may even be reelected in 2020. I expect a good rebound in Oil shares in January, February. TMP is being built perhaps other pipelines as well. Both Liberals & Conservatives want TMP to be completed.

Am I on the Correct Course ? What Oil companies would you Buy if you agree with my Thesis ? What do you think of my selections ? Joseph Schacter likes them .RAK

Q: I have positions in these companies way way under my cost. Looking for a strategy to capture some tax loss without giving up completely in allocation in case of oil turnaround. Consolidation in less number of stocks that represents the best potencial is an option or selling all of them and buying two or three different companies is another option. Appreciate any suggestion. Thanks for your help.

Q: Hi.
I have been watching the insider trading reports lately and there has been what I would describe as significant purchases of these 2 companies by a "GMT Capital\Bay Resource" insider. Considering your industry background I was wondering if you might know them and if so, what your perspective would be on this activity.
Thanks

Q: Hi 5i team, I have a general question on companies being removed or added to the different s&p tsx indexes. On Jan 23 a number of companies were added and many deleted (gte and exe among them), so my question is with these being very large indexes with many eft's and mutual funds holding them, is there actually a lot more buying or selling of these particular stocks by these funds or funds copying them. and if so do they have much lead time before the actual replacement date (jan 23) and would you see more adjustments continuing after the date possibly affecting normal trading of such companies.

thanks Tom

Q: What is your call on this stock generally and how does the recent share issue affect your view ?

Stock price is down 8% today on the the announcement of the bought deal: shares being issued with proceeds intended to pay down debt, etc.

Eric Nuttall says don't buy, but Josef Schachter has this as a past top pick. TD has it as an Action List Buy and shows 7 "strong buy" recommendations, but S&P Capital IQ has a "Strong Sell".

Any wisdom to add ?

Q: I own twelve oil and gas stocks in a $2.5 million portfolio as listed above. My advisor recommends selling the first seven stocks on the list and adding to the last five positions. I'm primarily interested in capital gains with dividends being a secondary consideration. Would you recommend selling any of the first seven stocks? If so, what gas and oil stocks would you choose as replacements? Thanks for your advise.
