Investment Q&A

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

Q: Just a follow up to my prior question. I was under the impression that Kxs is very expensive . Can you please give me an idea of whether you would consider if it was or not and what the numbers tell you.

Also, when you answer questions about stocks to buy you rarely mention TRI. This stock also has done amazingly well this 12 months +15%. How do you rate TRI as a buy at these prices and compared to other stocks you like?

Q: Hi 5i and Peter,
In a show down between DSG and TRI which company would you pick for the largest overall return for the next 5 - 10 years. I like both companies and having a tough time deciding. The past 5 years their CAGR share price (including TRI's dividend) has been DSG - 22.6% and TRI - 24.3%.

Q: This question concerns a well diversified Canadian portfolio (~30 holdings), focused slightly toward growth.

Looking to add to positions in ATZ, DOO, BN, BAM, GSY, KXS, TRI, PBH and T as well as initiate a partial position in WELL, all for long term holds (5+ years).

Would you rate any of these as a wait-and-see rather than a buy today? Please rate (1-10) in terms of your conviction to buy today, along with suggested target buy range [great, okay].

Thank you.

Q: "Thomson intends to return "at least $2 billion, which will be combined with a share consolidation or reverse stock split", to be funded by proceeds of the sale of LSEG shares later in 2023."

Do you have more information about this reverse stock split and how it might affect investors who currently hold the stock. Is it in an investors best interest to purchase more shares or wait to see what the actual transaction will be.

Thanks for your usual great service, Len

Q: I am looking recommendation for a solid long term Canadian growth stock, that one can largely purchase and forget it. This is for my grandchildren's portfolios which currently have a core holding of VEQT and small satellite positions in MICROSOFT, COSTCO and Visa. The portfolios are expected to be held for a very long time. I do monitor the positions currently on a quarterly basis.

Any thoughts on this approach and possible securities that would fit the bill?

Q: Hi Peter and 5i Team,

My TFSA is made up of CSU (33%), TRI (22), VGT (17), DSG (14), GSY (14).
CSU is the core position (thank you for that recommendation) and will not be added to at this time.

With current available cash and the upcoming 2023 contribution which 2 companies out of TRI, VGT, GSY and DSG would you add to for the best growth scenario?

Thanks for all your sage advise over the years. My first 6 years of retirement have been financially successful and the dividend and share growth has been stellar. Again a big thank you to 5i!
