Q: Am thinking of selling to crystallize tax loss and rebuying in 30 days. My timing is usually terrible when doing this. Do you think the market will make any significant moves in the next 30 days?
What replacement stocks would you recommend to buy for the 30 days?
Is SIS worth rebuying or is there something else in the Industrial space that would be better? Was thinking of EIF.

Q: Which 5 stocks from your growth portfolio and/or balanced portfolio would you start buying today for a TFSA for a five year hold (for an investor currently not owing any). Thanks.

Read Answer Asked by Kim on June 08, 2022

Q: Please rank the following companies for long term holds in a TFSA, with a management rating for each. (10 being the best)

Also, I currently hold SHOP and CSU.. Do you feel LSPD and TOI overlap these larger companies too much to consider a position ?

Please suggest any other Canadian companies not listed for long term holds.

Thanks for everything! Cheers

Q: I'm more a scavenger than a predator, as much interested in dividends as capital gains. Right now, however, I see opportunity in the growth sector as it collapses after years of ridiculous rises. My intention is to sell off bond funds to pick off the debris of this collapse.

First question: Now or wait?

Second question: What are your choices given this scenario, US or Canadian? Bear in mind, I'm not interested in the 5 or 10 yr wait. I'm looking at a bounce back after half the herd has jumped. I want reasonable growth prospects, a price to earnings ratio that isn't stupid and a margin that also isn't stupid. Say, for example, Apple.

You get it. I also don't expect perfection from you. No one ever got it from me.

Q: Good day team,

I know that you always suggest trading/buying into positive momentum but if you were to choose some stocks (regardless of sectors), on both the CDN and US sides, what would they be? As we are all aware, there is a lot of red out there in certain sectors.

Q: Happy Friday,

With the current dip and a further downside expected are there any income equities that you would classify as very attractive.

Looking for some new ideas. I have lots of banks, pipes, telcos, utilities, insurance cos, etc. but am not immune to buying more.

Anything in the US really strike you fancy?

Thanks very much and have a great weekend.

Q: Hello 5i

You are often asked if you could provide 2-3 "bargains" from the various portfolios - could you, given the current environment, provide
- 2-3 from the balanced / Income portfolios
- 2-3 outside of the portfolios (either Canadian or US please)
That you would consider a good opportunity to pick up at this time.
