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!

Q: I went to cash towards the end of last year in my TFSA. It turned out to be the right move at the time but 8 months later I am still in cash and suffering from whatever the opposite of FOMO is. As a senior, who lives off investments without any employer pension, my target return is any combination of growth and income at 6% -10% or better. While I am prepared for reasonable risk I can't afford to lose the TFSA headroom for a 3-5 years while a stock recovers. I am looking for 8-10 positions and would appreciate suggestions.

Q: 2 Questions related to Canadian stocks paying dividends in USD:
(1) I want more US cash and plan to have Questrade journal over the above CA stocks to the US equivalent in a TFSA. Is there any special considerations here when doing this? Best to do this on a day when the Canadian dollar is stronger?
(2) In a margin account, Questrade journaled over AQN:CA to AQN:US on February 3/22. I have held AQN:CA for more than 1 year and sold all of AQN:US today at a small loss. Will CRA see the later loss as a superficial loss, because the US listed stock was held for less than 30 days? Thanks!
