Q: I am trying to grow a small position in GDI and have two options. As I add funds over the coming months I can just average in, or I could sell my position in QIPT and get a larger position right away.

I know the stocks aren't comparable, but what would your thoughts be on this move? I think QIPT has decent growth prospects but one thing this move would do is take remove some risk (from small-cap to GDI market cap over 1 billion. Thanks for your thoughts.

Q: Thank you for providing such an unparalleled service. Your cost increases are minimal.

My question is about diversification in my RRSP which consists of mostly high quality growth stocks (GOOGL, VISA, NIKE, ACN, NVIDIA, etc.) I am however, under-represented in Canadian stocks which include BAM, SHOPIFY, IFC, FSV, & BIP.UN. My goal is to build up my Canadian portfolio in this RSP.

I am well represented in Tech, Consumers, disc, & health care with my US holdings. Can you recommend 10 Canadian stocks that I could add for the long term to balance out my portfolio? I am deficient in financial, materials & industrials. Or to apply the Occam's razor, should I just buy and accumulate XIC over time.

Many thanks

Q: Hello Peter,
I have GDI in my TFSA account and have done well so far.
Thank you.
However, I feel there is not much growth in the future and am considering replacing it with either EGLX or AT. The hesitancy stems due to the old adage - don't fix if it ain't broken. From a reward perspective, is the increase in risk justified ? I would appreciate your selection amongst the three for the TFSA. Subsequently , a preference amongst the remaining two for a margin account.
Do you consider GDI a growthy stock with a dividend yield?

Q: The listed companies each carry about a 1% weighing in my portfolio. There are no tax implications and I am positive on all of these. I am trying to reduce my overall holdings to about 25. I believe each company has its merits but I will never hit a home run with such a small investment. Can you advise which ones you would keep and consolidate or perhaps suggest something else to put all of the proceeds toward.

Thank you

Q: With inflation increasing and might remain higher than the past few years, I'm wondering if GDI, that I understand generally signs agreements under contact for say 5 years with Municipalities, would have the annual service fees adjusted to changes in inflation. Any idea, or is this a general practice for service providers signing longer-term agreements?......Tom

Q: Hello
If you had to chose between SIS and GDI to hold for the next three years, which would you prefer. They are close in market cap but SIS pays a monthly dividend and appears to be making a comeback. I currently hold GDI but am leaning toward switching back to SIS
Thanks for your great service

Q: Hi, I'm currently holding a few of these positions in our TFSA's along with SHOP, LSPD, WELL, etc... I'm trying to determine if these four stocks fit best in a TFSA or other accounts? I try to put the highest growth stocks into our TFSA's. Would you swap any of these names out with some of the other high growth stocks you like and put these into an RSP, LIRA or non registered account? Thanks!
