Q: The two least profitable stocks in my entire portfolio are SIS (up an anemic 6% after two years) and PBH (up 10% in the same time period). I'd like to replace both with something growthier - but here's the catch - I want similar dividends (+/- 1%) and I want Canadian replacements in the same sector. My only other Consumer Defensive is COST. Current industrials are WSP, HPS.A, J, and TFII. I would welcome your speculation on how SIS and PBH are likely to grow this year...and what potential replacements might be. Thank you.

Q: Hello,

Looking for advice to invest our RESP contribution this year for my daughter. Time horizon is 17 years. Do you prefer any of these for good growth, or are their any others you would prefer (companies traded in Canada would be ideal)?

Thank you, and Happy New Year.

Q: I'm hoping to take profit from ATD and maybe CSU. My weight in CSU is out of hand but I find it hard to sell that juggernaut. I also have TOI and LMN. I'm happy with my weighting of TOI and i plan to add a small weighting in LMN. I'm underweight in the following: SIS, PBH, SHOP, TD, BEP.UN, ENB, T, SLF, AW.UN. How would you rank these names going forward? Would you recommend swapping any of these for better opportunities that 5i covers or are in the balanced portfolio?

Q: Considering a switch from PLC and/or CTS to TVK, and one of SIS or NPI for TSU. What are your general thoughts on either move - higher risk, higher reward?

Thanks in advance. - Jeff

Q: Hi. I'm currently over weight in Consumer Defensives (BYD, PBH & PRWM) and under weight in Industrials (WSP, TFII, STN & SIS).
I'm thinking of selling PRMW and buying EIF. Based on future prospects do you think this trade makes sense. I intend to hold for a few years. Thanks!

Q: I sold LNTH 30 days ago to harvest the tax loss. I am looking for one more name to fill my healthcare allotment. I currently own ABBV, ISRG, WELL and SIS. Which do you like best between LNTH, DXCM and INMD, which are three names that you have been highlighting over the past several months? I am looking for potentially higher growth and am willing to take on the additional risk. Any other name(s) would certainly be welcome.

Appreciate your insight.

Q: Currently own SIS for a few years with small capital gains and collecting the monthly dividend. Looking for more capital gains and not in need of the monthly dividend payment. How’s HPS.A looking from a valuation and it is getting closer to 1B market cap. Looking to sell SIS and buy HPS.A for some more total returns. Thoughts?

Q: I bought GSY at its peak. Is it time to dollar cost average now or would you wait for the price to drop more?

How do you see the stock price move if interest rates stay stable until mid 2024?

Would you recommend different stocks which pay 3-5% dividend with room to grow 50% over the next 12 - 18 months,?
