Q: I hold the above in my income portfolio. With the exception of psi they are half positions. psi has diminished to well under a half position. I have enough new money to top 4 or 5 up to full positions. Which of the above (if any) would you suggest deserve a full 5% weighting? I am of course willing to move in a new direction if that were your advice. I currently hold 24 positions in this account.

Q: Happy Holidays everyone! I am relatively new to 5iResearch (few months) and must say that my results have been outstanding to say the least (SHOP, WELL, XBC to name a few - AC being the only one down so far). Thank you for that 5i.

I hold ET but am negative, as I am with BPY.UN (by more than 20% on both). I need to increase exposure in Technology, Industrials and both Consumer Cyclical and Defensive and decrease in Real estate. I do like some revenue but it is not essential for the next 3-5 years.

In no special order I am thinking LSPD or SYZ, TFII or WSP, PLC and PBH. What are you suggestions for growth here. Please comment and/or place in order of preference - objective being to recapture lost value in BPY.UN and ET over coming 12 months.

I understand this may represent many questions. Please take necessary credits. Thank you.

Q: Was in a quandary over ET after purchasing as an income stock several years ago. Currently underwater by 30% and was wondering about buying more as my position is small. I know 5i seldom recommends averaging down but in this case would averaging down be an opportunity? Normally I would sell after a dividend cut but these times are not normal. Company has no debt ( I think ) and room to increase dividend. Is management just being ultra-conservative about increasing dividend? Would this be a tax loss seller or a buying opportunity?

Q: I'm going to sell my ET position very soon. I would like to put the proceeds into one of the following three: LSPD, REAL or WELL. How would you order them in terms of risk? How would you order them in terms of most potential?

Q: Hello 5i,
I sold PLC at a gain to buy AW due to the higher dividend and good pricing. I sold ET and bought TCL.A also at a good price now.

With the excess cash from the sale of ET should I wait to see what you suggest next or buy CU which s not in your portfolios but has a good dividend, is at a good price and is suggested by you in many instances or buy GOEASY also at a good price, growing, and a reasonable dividend? I am 73 looking for dividend and some growth with a ten year outlook. I do not need the funds as a defined pension plus dividends. If you have better suggestions I would appreciate them.

Q: In response to Roy's question on Sept 11 you stated in part "earnings are expected to bounce in 2021 by up to 50%". I couldn't find any specific information supporting that position in the MD&A accompanying recent annual & quarterly results, other than management's generic confidence in increasing revenues once the pandemic impacts are over (whenever that is!) Have you any other specific information?
