Investment Q&A

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

Q: FSZ bought back a large block at much lower price than the market. Would you guess that this is part of a larger plan, perhaps restructuring, merger...etc. Since they spent lots of cash, would that also constrain them from an acquisition. With high dividends, cash flow and low P/E why this stock is not getting traction? Appreciate your opinion, thanks

Q: I read recently that there has been a change in senior management at Fiera, with Mr Desjardins the former CEO moving to Executive Chairman. I believe that he is 77 years old, the controlling shareholder and founder of the company. I had thought that he would be selling the company due to his age. but now I am wondering whether it has become a value trap. What do you think?

Q: I have Fiera in my RRIF and while it pays a great dividend it has not grown. Enbridge on the other hand has also a good dividend and has grown. I currently own 3 banks and Pembina pipeline. How would you compare from a risk perspective and would consider this a good alternative. Other recommendations would be appreciated. I am a dividend moderate growth retired investor.

Q: Hi 5I
I have $180,000 split evenly amongst above companies in RRSP. I was going to begin withdrawing $10,000 every year and am looking for strategy to draw down to maximize growth of account. Is there a ranking of companies to sell first, or take a bit from each? I like them all so tough call for me. Appreciate all your advice since my initial membership in 5I.

Q: Looking past the ECN special dividend, how would you compare ECN and FSZ for the longer term for safety of capital and dividends, and growth? Aside from the big six banks, are there other names that trade on Canadian markets in the broader financial services area that you might consider to be superior to these two for safety and growth? Please take whatever credits needed. Thanks.

Q: Good Morning,
I see this morning they had a bit of a dividend increase, is this the best use of capital for them at this point? The yield is already sitting at just under 8% ? Maybe pay down some debt or buy back some shares if they are so cheap? The higher yield is nice but doesn't really seem to attract new shareholders or move the needle for them.
