Investment Q&A

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

Q: Can you provide a 'buy' list for a person wanting to deploy $200,000 (inside RRSP) with the goal of creating 5% or more sustained cash flow - as well as growing the original capital to keep up with inflatiion? We do not have company pensions - this would serve to supplement our government pensions.
Thinking, 20 stocks across all sectors @ $10,000 each (or 5%)
Also could you include 10 growth stocks (inside TFSA) for a total of $250,000 - gotta have some fun ;)
Many Thanks
Jan

Q: Hello Peter and team,
K-Bro Linen is down to what looks to be a bit of a long-term (excluding 2020) base of around $30. The dividend is approaching 4 percent. For a goal of long-term capital preservation and income, do you see it currently having the financial strength to provide this kind of stability? One concern is that the P/E shows as 50. Why so high? Is that misleading in some way, given the investment goal noted above? Thank you.

Q: Hello Peter, I am intrigued after reading that a Canadian can earn about $50,000 per year of dividend income without paying any income tax. I know about your income portfolio of course, but with a view to maximizing just Canadian eligible dividend income, what would you think of the following portfolio of 14 stocks. Equal weighted, the stocks would yield 5.3%. (Disregard lack of market diversification; this can be achieved in one’s registered accounts.) Also, if one wanted to pare down the list to 10, which 4 would you delete?
BCE, CM, ENB, FTS, CNQ, AQN, CPD, FSZ, MG, KBL, POW, ALA, BIPC and NTR. Thanks!

Q: Dear 5i,

In your latest flash report April 13, 2020 you suggested that due to covid-19 there will likely be reduced EPS growth. You also mentioned there might be a dividend cut for conservatism. In your opinion is the dividend covered with reduced earnings expectations due to covid-19 challenges? If so, what percentage of earnings would be used to pay the current dividend if it not cut? If the dividend is cut, what do you think is reasonable?

thanks

Ian
