Q: Hi Guys
Can you list a few U.S. stocks with attractive Free cash flow Yields ( using EV instead of MCAP) preferably with stable cash flows, that trade at attractive Forward P/E ratios.
Looking also for a decent dividend. I was pondering IBM, their interest coverage looks decent, but their Total Debt/EBITDA looks a bit high at 4.0x
Thanks Gord

Q: We have BN (full position) and BAM in Canadian $ accounts. 5i appears to consider these very good choices for part of a portfolio foundation. Do you have similar choices to recommend that we could put in our US$ accounts (TFSA, RRIF) ?
Thank you, as always.

Q: I recall once seeing a link to an explainer on all of the different Brookfield offerings. Can you please repost this. Is it up to date with the new BAM / BN thing?

Ideally hoping to see a tabulated summary including:
name of holding
nature of business
ideal account type to hold in for optimal tax efficiency
closest competitor names

Which offering would you recommend for green energy income investment in an unregistered CDN$ account? Any comments on when is a good time to buy given recent structural changes and interest rate changes.

Q: I'm interested in taking a position in BX. I prefer do it in my TFSA, or I could do it in my Margin if necessary - what do you suggest? Also back in Sept. you recommended it at $78-79 entry point. Would you still recommend it at that price or do you feel I should wait for a lower entry point? Do you still like this company for a long term hold? Thank you.
