Q: Good morning
3 questions plse take 3 credits

1. I purchased AW.UN at around 44$ a couple of years ago and since then it has now slid to 30$ what will it take for it to regain some value back up to around 44$?

2. BIP.UN looked like it was recovering but now has slipped back into the high 30$ any particular reason for the fall back?

3. Currently own GOOG which cant seem to get any traction but wondering for a long term hold would AMZN be a better buy for long term growth? Which would you buy if only one can be held?

Q: Hi Peter and Staff

Many times when you are asked for a good dividend stock for a long term hold QSR makes the cut. Today Marco asked for top 5 consumer discretionary names, it did not make that cut while AW.UN and PLC did. Do you view QSR less positively than those names?
Thanks for all you do

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?

Which would you replace, and with what, and if you could provide a reasoning for the change. REAL is my "real" worry, if truth be told, but I also feel slightly off my pizza these days ...
