Q: Piggybacking off this question from Domenic on March 09:
Q: I am interested in establishing a 2% position in the Consumer Defensive space, and I am debating between Loblaws and Premium Brands. This position is meant to be held for an extended time period of several years. Which company would be better positioned to provide me a substantial return, and if asked to choose, towards which one might you lean? If there is another opportunity in this space that you feel would better fit the aims I have described, I would be happy to read your thoughts. Thanks so much, and I look forward to reading your feedback.

Wondering what your answer would be if MRU was thrown in the mix.

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: Iíve held PBH through thick and thin for over 5 years waiting for the ďgrowthĒ to materialize and yet after this time Iím down nearly 20%. How long do you give a company to perform before moving on? Even if I was just breaking even Iíd have some more patience with this but the opportunity cost of 5 lost years and a 20% loss is telling me itís time to find something else. Your perspective would be appreciated. Thanks.
