Q: Hi 5i,
I hold NFI in a reg'd account where I endeavour to buy and hold. A while ago it was up nicely but then lost all its gains and more when the revised guidance came out. Now, with its recent soft recovery and dividends accounted for it's back in black, slightly.
I'm not optimistic about NFI's next couple of years and would like to see better capital gain and dividend income from the funds currently in NFI, and I'm considering WJX as a replacement. What do you think of this move and, if not WJX, can you suggest another one or two names for me to consider?
Much the same circumstances and question regarding AQN, which I think is somewhat stale these days and may be for a few years to come. I'm considering CPX as a replacement and would appreciate your opinion on that move, and your suggestions of one or two other than CPX if you think leaving AQN behind is wise but CPX might not be the answer.
Thanks and please deduct accordingly.

Q: Wajax and Transcontinental have several things in common : mid single digit p/e, moderately high yield, relatively safe pay-out ratio, and a turnaround in earnings seems possible. Can you think of any other companies whose profile hits the 4 previously mentioned criteria. Thank you.

Q: Trimming the herd to pay off the mortgage. Any compelling reason not to sell the above names. I have a few others on the maybe trim list if you make a compelling case to keep any of the above. Balanced growth follower.

I am heavy financial ( thus ditching rbc and mfc), wjx is one of my dogs ( offsets some of my gain on financials) and rus- tpk -wpm have gone sideways so no gain-loss on them. Gets me out pretty cap gain neutral and cleans out a bit of dead weight not in your balanced portfolio

Q: thoughts on wjx...I own a 0.5 position, down about 30%....seem to be out of the worst, revenues on target, div at 4% ....hold for the possible recovery in oil and gas that will fuel recovery of wjx sales and margins or move to another industrial? Might need the tax loss later in the year as I sell some unregistered holdings to pay down the mortgage...but no strong need to sell.

Q: I have decided to pay off my mortgage, primarily because I think I have had a good run with equity returns outperforming by a good margin the cost of carrying my mortgage. Although I am not concerned about a large correction I think the risk return is swinging a bit more towards paying off the 2.79% mortgage. I will likely sell 3 or 4 of the following to do so: bbd, mal, pza, rsi, rus, tpk, wjx, dht. Please rank in order in which you would sell the companies listed, you can assume none will adversely affect my current asset allocation. I realize it is quite a mixed bag...but they are some of the ones I hold that aren't in your balanced portfolio so kills 2 birds by getting them out of my current holdings...
