Q: Thank you for your answer on stocks and ETF'S for my son's FHSA account that is starting. The answer included mostly US domiciled names/ETF's and we are looking at Canadian names. Could you recommend a combination of Canadian blue chips and ETF's for a 7 year time frame to monthly contribute and compound before needing funds for a home buyer withdrawal
Thank you

Thinking of adding to banks at some point (recession?) or adding BCE and EIF? T is small holding at 2000 shs. Comments/suggestions please. Oh, own ETF ZUE for quite a while also. RRSP has other banks +++

Q: In a recent question you answered " we think one of the most important skills for investors who choose to own high-quality compounders is the willingness to hold them through thick and thin, even in periods when they appear to be fully valued (or slightly overvalued)."
With this in mind could you please give a list of canadian high-quality compounders that you would recommend initiating a position in and holding through thick and thin.
Could you please include their sector designation and yield.
I am interested and low yield ones for a non registered account but would also like to see your higher yield ones too.

Q: I identified 9 companies that out performed the TSX 60 plus 3 energy companies that I believe have a bright future. All 12 failed the MACD. 5 are trading at double digit discounts to their 52 week highs; dsg,shop,l,tou and cve. P/E range from 85 to 6 etc, etc. Please pick your diversified top 6 for a 5 year hold, with consistent profitability, no crazy volatility and suggest a great entry price. Thank you

Q: Morning 5i Team,
I have held TRI since early 2020 and have since almost doubled my investment. I am thinking of taking some profits on TRI and invest the proceeds on something else. Would you agree with this move? And can you suggest a stock(s) to put the proceeds in regardless of sectors.
