Q: hi 5i. I usually like to sell in times like these, to lock in the capital loss. I pair trade immediately after the sell, to stay invested, usually. the list is of my losers right now. are there any on the list you would not sell now and pair trade? and, can you provide a recommendation for each for another stock to pair trade with ( I am thinking hut8 for hive, perhaps nuvei for something? dsg for something? or maybe one name can replace 1 or more of the names. I would then most likely buy back the stocks I sold after the month of waiting is over, to lock in the losses. your thoughts/expertise is always appreciated. cheers, chris

Q: Hello 5i

You are often asked if you could provide 2-3 "bargains" from the various portfolios - could you, given the current environment, provide
- 2-3 from the balanced / Income portfolios
- 2-3 outside of the portfolios (either Canadian or US please)
That you would consider a good opportunity to pick up at this time.

Q: Hi team. I have ~$15k for my TFSA and was wondering about SYZ and FIE for tax free income. Iím down quite a bit with SYZ in other RSP accounts but was wondering if it might be an opportunity now while waiting for some growth in the future. FIE has been good to me and the coupon is roughly the same as SYZ. Hate to be a dividend chaser. Should I buy now or buy something else? Appreciate your thoughts. Bill

Q: After taking a profit from an oil company you suggested last year (thank you!), I am looking to re-invest (outside of the commodity sectors) accepting higher risk for return. It's a registered account with 10 years before the money is needed. Of the companies listed which would you expect to have the most growth over 10 years?

Q: I've read the Nov. 4, 2021 report and all questions since. Given premium to peers in Nov report and its more than 50% decline, taking into consideration price changes since Nov in peers (KXS, DSG, SYZ), would you say the case is stronger on a relative basis today to consider TCS for a buy? If you ranked the 4 today where would you put TCS and if it's in the 3 or 4 position, what particular weaknesses are causing you to rank it lower? Thanks for all you do. John

Q: Hi Peter and 5i Team
Have held ENGH for several years in a LIF. I like the dividend of SYZ for income and am considering switching mainly for the dividend. I believe you rate ENGH higher than SYZ but like them both. Which do you think will make a better recovery? Is this a reasonable move?

Q: Syz.,what is happening here?This company is totally out of favor.
What is the market telling us?
They aren't earning enough to pay the dividend.And really, why is a growth company even paying a dividend? That doesn't make much sense.
Please can you shine some light on this.As well as Cliq,what is the story here?Its very confusing to me

Q: Hello,
I would like to rebalance my technology exposure.
You mentioned putting in stink bids to pick up bargains.
Could you tell me what you suggest for stink bids on SHOP, LSPD, TOI and SYZ.

Thank you very much

Q: In an income portfolio, currently hold CSH.UN at full position and thinking to sell outright to replace with 1/2 positions in AW.UN and SYZ to replace yield and add diversification. What are your thoughts on the move? Does it increase risk?

Q: Like a previous subscriber wrote, we also appreciate your most recent report: specifically, the numeric historical context of this current correction, the sectors affected and those most likely to benefit.
We are invested in each of the three of the 5i portfolios and over the next 1-2 months plan to make staggered and targeted contributions.
Could you suggest 3 or 4 companies from each portfolio where the winds of sentiment are excessively negative and would be attractive to purchase with this approach?
This is for a 5+ years hold.
Thank you
