Investment Q&A

Not investment advice or solicitation to buy/sell securities. Do your own due diligence and/or consult an advisor.

Q: If you held 5 or 6 real estate type positions in a diversified portfolio, and wanted to consolidate a bit, would you be in favour of selling a smallish position in SVI and add to medium sized positions in DIR.UN and/or GRT.UN. If yes, would you add to both or just DIR.UN?

Q: With increasing power demand (AI, EV's, data centers, etc.), what positive or negative impact does this have on BEP.UN and FTS ?

Are there any Canadian REIT's that are currently investing in the apparent demand for data centers - perhaps DIR.UN or GRT.UN ? I know that BIP.UN is now investing in this area.

Q: I own the above high dividend yield Canadian stocks, just under 4% yield and up. I am looking to add maybe 10 to 20 % to 4 or 5 positions. The yield on these is enough for us now so no hurry to sell anything.
Retired, but still looking at safety of capital. I have left out O&G plays and other potentially riskier plays. (except Enbridge)

Which of these, or other stocks do you believe have the greatest potential for price appreciation over the next couple of years if/when interest rates drop.

I am looking for your top 5, here but feel free to add other picks.

Thank you. Take as many credits as needed.

Q: My plan is delay OAS, at the same time trying to not go overboard on dividend-payers in my taxable account to limit the clawback. I'm wondering if adding REITs instead tend to help that situation.

Generally speaking, is the payout from Canadian REITs such as GRT.UN and DIR.UN in a form that is beneficial in that regard? Is there a CAD ETF that invests in the U.S. that might also be a good idea?

I hope this doesn't come across as tax advice.
