Q: I am interested in you Portfolio Change advice to sell the full position in Sylogist.

Would you consider that it has fallen in accordance to its current value?

Do you believe that the current price is not a “over-swing” of the pendulum?

Would your advice apply to both registered and non-registered holdings?

Do you see further downside to SYZ, or a shift in investment rationale and performance?

Q: Hello 5i
As a value investor, SYZ is sold with a loss. PepsiCo, bought a while ago has an increase by the same amount as the loss. The dividend is 2.6%. If I sell Pepsico what suggestions would there be to replace these that have a signficant dividend? I am a 77 year old value investor with a ten year time frame with stocks and 16 ETF's in all 11 sectors, 6 ETF's of which are covered call. Any suggestions as to this strategy would be appreciated. Please take as many credits as required.
Thank you,

Q: Hi, Hope you are able to provide your opinion on this company, after the CC and reviewing today's price action with about 20% drop on large volume. We have owned this stock for income for several years even with poor performance, lately, but liquidated half of our holding at the open today, with a small loss. ( at least capital loss can be harvested). Is there any rationale to continue to own the company, for Growth and if so, what is the level of your conviction with management's plan ? Thank You

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: Hello, I sold SYZ a month ago for tax-loss purposes. I thought I would buy it back if the share price was below what I sold it for (it is). I hesitate to buy it because I worry the co will cut its dividend to fund growth and/or reduce debt, which would hurt the share price quite a bit. Should I wait until the 3rd quarter reporting in November in the hope that the co will be clearer on its intent to keep the div as is? Thanks.
