Q: For a RRIF withdrawal, I'm thinking of switching either FSZ, NWH or BTO (all of which are down) to a TFSA .

Which of these do you think has more upside potential?

Q: NWH.UN released its earnings today and had perhaps a little bad news - AFFO did not cover the distributions in the quarter - and some good news - deleveraging plans seems to be on track and the CEO comments even raised the possibility of share buybacks once the deleveraging plan is further advanced. What do you make of todays results and these comments in particular? Has it turned the corner? Optimistic or pessimistic?

Q: So NWH.UN announced a successful debenture issue today which will have the effect of reducing interest expense. On the surface this seems like good news, but I am wondering why someone would buy it. The interest rate is lower than the dividend yield and the convertible price is still about $2 higher than currently trading. I can see buying this if you were convinced there was going to be a dividend cut, but I doubt that will be the case at least in the near term given managements stated recent focus. What am I missing? Why would someone buy this debenture? I am an income investor and have a 2% weighting and am thinking of increasing it to 5%…..if I can figure out an answer to my question. Would you be ok with a 5% weighting in this stock under these circumstances?

Thanks in advance. Love the service.

Q: I have small positions in Chorus Aviation, North West Health Care, Lightspeed and Topicus; I'm down in all - and wondering how much patience is warranted - and considering Nuvei. Could you rate these in terms of possible upside and when one might expect this?

Q: 1. Anaergia has sunk to a point where failure has to be considered; yet I would have thought that unlikely?
2. If you ignore the 2020 blip in their share price NWH is now discounting five years of growth. Two questions; why, and is this a sector phenomena – as in health care or if appropriate real estate more generally, or is it an individual problem applying to solely to NWH?

Q: I really like the look of this company's juicey dividend,but i am concerned about the trend of all the doctor's (mine included)even though the pandemic for the most part completely over they are still doing a lot of telephone appointments, and the need for office and clinic's i would think can only decline going forward in our digital world.
Maybe i am overthinking this but this, looks like a good entry point, your thoughts would this be a buy for a2-3 year hold,,,Thanks

Q: Hi

Thank you for the great service you provide.

I am looking at these three companies to add to my TFSA. What is the debt load ratio, how does it compare to others in its sector?

I am also curious about NWH. Several of other REITs, in different sectors, have started to move back towards their 2022 highs.NWH has stayed near its low. NWH occupation rate, revenue etc all look good. Is there some concerns about NWH?

Thanks, Len

Q: Good evening,

RNW is down significantly in recent weeks. NWH.UN down as well - just not as much.
In November you suggested NWH.UN was still a hold.
What are your thoughts on these two at this moment in time specially wrt income.

Thanks very much.
