Q: Hi 5i,

Just looking for your opinion on the dentures of SOT.un. This would be part of my higher risk bond portfolio. Itís a 5.25% debenture (SOT.DB) due 28/02/23 currently trading around par.

The balance sheet seems strong enough to handle the repayment in 2023. I donít think the conversion price of $10.53 will enter into the conversation.

Any concerns and your opinion would be most helpful.

Q: Hi 5i:
Based on the idea that offices will not be needed as much in the post pademics future , is it worth to keep this stock (SOT) for a 5 years period?, or it would be better to switch to HR for example.
wishing a good year to your team and all members. Alex

Q: Because I cannot contribute new funds to my LIRA, I have a number of high-yield stocks to generate income that can be reinvested in growth. Full position in PDC for diversification and smoothing effect, half position in everything else. How safe are these utility and REITs dividends with 7-9.5 % yields? Alternative suggestions for 10 year plus strategy? (Please deduct as many credits as required)

Q: Hi,

I'll be managing my spouse's account in the next month or so. One of the reasons we'll be managing it ourselves it is that our current manager does not take a balanced approach to portfolios, thus she has about a 25% weighting in REITs. Below are the REITs she holds, can you prioritize them in terms of what to hold or sell? Each of the below is between 2 and 4% of our portfolio value and we don't need the income.

Northwest Healthcare
Dream Office
Northview Apt
Slate Office REIT
One REIT (which is being bought out I understand)
