Q: I am aware you had dropped FSZ from the The recent announcement of the drop in AUM has precipitated quite a drop in share price. My 3 part question is:
1) How safe would you say the dividend is?
2) Can you estimate the payout ratio at this time?
3) Is this the proverbial falling knife, or is there a basis for some share price (are we there?) where a buy is in the order?
Thanks! ... PK

Q: I have been out of the loop for a while (due to a few health concerns) and have found these two stocks, Fiera and Algonquin, fallen since I last checked in on them.

Is Fiera, then, a SELL? I see that it is diminished in the portfolio, but still hanging in there. If this company is no longer a good proposition, could you suggest a replacement for a steady income/dividend, as that is a priority now in my stage of investing.

And same applies to Algonquin. Is that a good proposition to hold, or can it be replaced now with something with more vitality?

Thanks for your help, as always.

Please deduct points accordingly, as this is a "two-fer". : )

Q: For a long term investor, say 10 + yrs, are the issues you identified in your dropping coverage notice for Fiera, fatal? In the long term the ups and downs of any company are to be expected, however, there are some risk conditions from which a company may not be able to survive. Do you see Fiera as a going concern 10 yrs from now albeit at a lower price and lower dividend. Or perhaps a lower price and zero dividend?

Q: Hi 5i Team,

I am looking to create a dividend portfolio of 15 positions yielding around 6%. My plan is to weigh these positions equally in a non-registered account. A good number of these equities are in your income portfolio but I just wanted to get your opinion if you would swap any of these out or add anything else?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Q: For a RRIF withdrawal, I'm thinking of switching either FSZ, NWH or BTO (all of which are down) to a TFSA .

Which of these do you think has more upside potential?
