Q: Hi 5i Team, I have RAY.A and SYZ in my TFSA for some time now. Both pay a decent dividend of 4+ percent but growth has been underwhelming.. Outside the March crash RAY.A for last 2 years ranges up to 8+ then typically quickly drops down to 6 or lower 7 dollar range. SYZ follows similar pattern ranging over 12 but drop back below it again. Are these stocks you would support to continue holding in a TFSA or can you suggest 5 stocks in order of priority in the similar sectors for replacement. Looking at Canadian Options at this time.

Thanks for you help..

Q: Hi 5i Team, I already have a full position with Ray/A.TO holding it for a year now, recently it had a breakout at SP $7.27 (increased holding from 5% to 10%) my technical indicator shows a price objective around sub 9.00 which gives a 25% move. Needed your fundamental input to its upcoming earning expectation, debt and business prospects post covid...Thanks

Q: hello 5i:
I'm considering selling RAY.A, just to get rid of a really weak stock, and something that has become a very small holding in the portfolio. One thing is holding me back, and that is the dividend and its safety. Can you discuss how RAY.A has been impacted and look forward? I believe that a company that can continue to pay a decent dividend will be (even more) valuable with interest rates falling. That might be double edged if interest rates begin to rise quickly.
