Q: My electrification theme has done remarkably well lately, in fairness I have owned HPS.a for many years, but now what?? They each appear to shifting from value plays to growth plays and while my gut says to take profits my brain says the trend is your friend and hold until growth plateaus. Would appreciate your opinion on the three of them and my favourable dilemma.

Q: In response to my question on TTNM you said that earnings are expected to decline over the next few years but gave it an OK for a growth oriented TFSA, noting its small size. It seems the trucking industry is expected declining numbers as it this has been stated for TFII as well. Why would one buy a stock in an expected declining industry?
So now am looking at DE ( quite small company )which seems to be growing and is supported by a dividend. I see Bruce Campbell (2) is a director.
Should I take a small ( 1% total portfolio) portion of DE, TTNM, or 50 -50 split, or neither. Any other small caps with developing momentum you suggest ? Thanks. Derek

Q: If you held the following smaller cap stocks in positions of 0.5% to 1.0% of your total stock portfolio, and wanted to reduce the number of holdings by selling several of them and using the money to add to others, which ones would you sell and which ones would you add to: ACQ, ADEN, AEP, AND, CHW, CJ, DCM, ECN, GEO, HPS.A, LNF, NOA, PRL, QIPT, RCH, RET.A, SFC, STLC, SVI, TVE, WELL, XTC. Assume overall portfolio is well diversified so sectors not a consideration, and that this is the riskier part of portfolio, so, higher risk is fine. Would be great if you could pare this list of 22 stocks down to about 10-15. Thanks.

Q: Hammond Power Solutions just reported. Your thoughts on the quarter? Have your views changed on the company? Please give your opinion on the insider ownership, management and industry. I've more than doubled my money, just looking to see if I should sell and buy later at a cheaper price or just hold long term, what do you think of that strategy? Thank you.

Q: Hello All,

A strategy occasionally mentioned is to consider buying at 52 week highs because it suggests continuing upward momentum .

I am following a few names which keep rising however am loathed to buy at this time because of the possible threat of a market correction.

Would you be willing to suggest any companies that you would almost certainly be buying, into recent highs, despite the looming threat?

Thank you

Q: HPS and HPF - what are the prospects for these two funds, and I assume the outlook for and relevance of preferred interest rates to investment in one of these funds?

HPS.A - not related to the above - do you expect Hammond to raise capital by way of share issue, or otherwise, for the announced 40m expansion commitment.

Q: Chesswood, North American Construction and Hammond Power Systems all produced some very good Q3 results. All look very cheap on a p/e basis. Would like to hear some comments about each as possible purchases in a diversified portfolio. I hold some HPS, but not the other 2.
