Q: I'm going to increase my position in either MAL or AND { both at around 1.2% position } to somewhere around 2.5% ..... Which of the two does 5I prefer at today's prices ? ..... Can you comment on AND's earnings report ...... And problems with increasing rents, hiring drivers, and fuel prices going forward ? ...... Simply Wall Street claims MAL's earnings are set to grow 106.9% per year for the next three years. That's a pretty hefty increase in earnings ....And that the dividend is not well covered by earnings ..... Can you confirm this ? ..... Thanks for your great service. Garth

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: Time to deploy a small amount of cash in an un-registered account. My 2 smallest holdings are SU and MAL. I am hesitant to jump back into oil and gas as the glory days are likely behind them. SU valuation is attractive but long term I just dont see the good times ahead. MAL I've owned forever and glad to see you add coverage and into the income portfolio. It has been beat up a bit and makes it attractive but worried about a slow airline recovery hampering revenues. Coin toss or do you have a preference for next 3-5 years. Not really enough cash to bother with a 50-50.

Q: As a Covid recovery stock I tend to agree with Mr Branson's philosophy on airlines { AC } . " The best way to become a millionaire is to invest $2.5 billion in an airline " . And Mr. Buffet " Hi my name is Warren and I'm an airoholic . Please talk to me until the urge to buy an airline passes " ...... So I am more inclined to go with someone who services them like CAE or MAL . Though the difference in market cap is huge I'm leaning toward MAL based on current valuation, a juicy dividend, and it doesn't appear particularly volatile .....I know 5I likes both but if you were going to give the edge to one today which one would it be and why ? Also when does each one next report earnings ?
