Q: Hi Peter, Ryan, and 5i Team,

My wife and I need to reduce holdings in some stocks in our RRIFs to raise enough cash for the mandatory RRIF payments, which in our case is in late December.

Portfolio Analytics allows various ways to rank stocks, so I looked at the column "Total Portfolio Equity Weight" and ranked the stocks accordingly. For example, in my RRIF, my highest weight is with MG, and my wife's highest weight is with GSY. Not surprisingly, Portfolio Analytics also indicates that the Consumer Cyclical sector (MG), and the Financial Services sector (GSY) are overweight in our combined family portfolio (RRIFs, TFSAs, and non-registered accounts).

Is this a good way to determine the stocks that could be reduced to raise the required cash while at the same time putting sector weightings more in line with the recommendations of Portfolio Analytics?

I notice that many members ask questions about their holdings in various stocks, but 5i generally answers that weightings are personal.

Perhaps there's an alternative "rule of thumb" to use when going through this yearly process, and your valuable advice would, as always, be greatly valued.

Q: According to gsy news release gsy owns 1123570 shares of afrm. At 141 per afrm share thatís 158 million USD
1- how is that accounted for in the financial statement

3- is the market even reflecting this in gsy share price

ii) 655,416 common shares of Affirm, and iii) 468,154 common shares of Affirm held in escrow and subject to forfeiture if certain PayBright revenue milestones are not met

Q: I know you like ADT.B as a company and its management but the stock hasn't done much over the past couple of years. At some point does the lack of share price growth warrant removal from the portfolio?

Savaria is another one, and despite all the potential for a reopening trade Air Canada isn't 'taking off'. Do you think these two should be considered for replacement with something else that can provide better growth?

Please deduct credits accordingly.

Q: I bought REAL in juin 2020 and have averaged down on the way, ending with a large loosing position. Lesson learned about averaging down!

How do you consider the outlook for REAL? It missed estimates, but how do you like the growth, the balance sheet and the valuation actually?

Im wondering if i hold longer or if i trim around 1.5%?

Im considering the lower market to average up LSPD, GSY, ATA, WSP or BYD. How would you rank those today?
