Investment Q&A

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

Q: I am a 60+ retired income investor,

I consider the above noted equities to be my riskiest holdings.

About 1,000 each - mostly in my cash account.

I understand SYZ reduced its dividend today and of course the issues with AQN.

Still up on AQN. Underwater on all the rest.

Looking for some advice - sell or hold by holding?

And of course any general comments would be appreciated.

Thanks very much.

Q: Ignoring company size and sector diversification, can you please rank these stocks on a best to worst risk / reward basis for long term hold. I own them all in various accounts with a half position or less so my plan would be to let some go and increase position in others with better potential. Any of them you consider good buy at the moment? Thank you!

Q: Good Day All,

I hold the above in an income oriented portfolio. Looking to allocate more money to tech if I can find anything that meets the criteria of a reasonably secure dividend with a minimum 4% yield, on a Cdn exchange. Tough to find in this sector but thought I would ask for any suggestions you may have. I could also just add to the above if you can find nothing better.

Much appreciated.

Thank you!

Q: Hi Team,

What do you think about ET, BCE, EIF? I already own a position in EIF and BCE and was thinking to add more or start a position in ET. This would be an acquisition in my non-registeted account and for a 10-15 time frame. I am primarily a dividend investor, but do look for some growth potential.

Thank you for your diligence and the service you provide!

Q: Stock screeners. Could you suggest web sites with a great stock screener tool - free or paid?

Failing that could you list Canadian companies that currently pay a dividend above 2.75 % and have no debt?

Q: I am looking for technology companies that pay a dividend for an income portfolio, Sylogist is on my list to purchase however it is fairly small. Do you view the SYZ dividend as safe and would you buy today? Can you recommend another tech that pays a reasonable dividend (smaller but growing is fine)? Thank you.
