Q: Saturdayís Globe quoted ADNís CEO as taking a look at selling carbon credits on a small portion of a piece of land that had already had a conservation easement. The contribution to cash flow is expected to be modest. Do you think this help reduce stock volatility? Will there be insurance costs to mitigate forest fire destruction? The west coast seems to be getting dryer and the east coast getting wetter so forest fires may be less of a problem with ADNís woodlots largely located in New Brunswick and Maine. If carbon credits become a larger business this should help the lumber companies increase prices for their dressed essence by reducing supply. In a way it could develop into a bit of a squeeze against the US timber companies by removing ďsurplusĒ Canadian supply. Domtar, which is being privatized, with their large land holdings could see a good benefit. Any thoughts you have would be appreciated.

Q: Can you tell me your thoughts about the long term prospect for this company and why do you think it has been such a weak performer over the last month? Do you think it's growth has peaked? I've held this since 2014 and added a bit more in 2015 for an average entry price of around $32.00. Should I hold or sell?

If I was to replace this company in my RRSP could you give me three alternate companies in the material sector I should look into as possibilities for long time hold, hopefully with dividend and growth prospects?

Q: Do forest fires in the US northwest imply better prices for Canadian lumber producers, or are the effects of supply destruction outweighed by trade war dynamics? Supposing a demand surge materializes, will it be specific to west coast producers? Of the latter, do you continue to favour WFT?

Q: With a 5-10 year time horizon, can you recommend any dividend stocks which have stable dividends and high yields due to current market conditions? I think that RioCan and Enbridge both fall into this category and would be interested in similar stocks that have a yield in the 8-10% range.

Q: HI guys
Have been a holder for Acadian Timber for quite a while, and wondering with the share price drop is this a good time to add a bit more - up to a 3% position for income and a bit of capital appreciation. A couple of questions - with the company trading substantially below book value does that put a floor somewhat on share price? And how strong is the dividend and the company financially - e.g. I see the company has more than a 100% payout ratio in terms of the dividend - can they sustain this for a period of time waiting for markets to improve?

Q: Hi 5i Research Team:

I have traded Forex before and am new to stock trading. 90% of my RRSP, RESP and TFSA is in cash and I'd like to avail the current market conditions by "gradually" buying the dips.. and holding it over the long term, 5 to 10 years. I understand that no one can time the market or its bottom.

After exploring the reports and questions on your site, I have identified the enclosed 29 stocks based on following criteria:
- Current Retracements of > 75% over 52 week high & low
- Dividend Yield > 5% (in some cases, like WEED, which is a bit risky, I understand there's no dividend in the near term.. and I am simply going for the upside swing over the next 2 years... same for CRON and Air Canada)

Considering my 90% cash position and strategy to partially buy in on dips over the next few weeks, can you please advise if my stock selection is sound. In addition to my stock picks, please advise anything else that I should keep in mind.

Thanks for everything you do. Much appreciate.
