Q: Curious to hear your thoughts about CET:NYSE, Central Securities, as a potential 5- to 10-year hold for diversification, some income and capital appreciation. Also, would it make sense to hold this in addition to BRK.B, BX, and a few ETFs (VGRO, VTV, VWO)? Thank you!

Q: Good morning,

My plan is to purchase $50K of BX:US in my US$ non registered account but have insufficient US$ in my US$ non registered account to complete the transaction.

To save on the currency exchange cost, I'm thinking of purchasing approx $60K of ENB.CA and then journal the stock to my US$ non registered account.
Once ENB:CA has been journaled to my US$ non registered account, I would then sell the ENB:US stock and purchase BX:US for a long term hold.

Question1: Is ENB:CA a good candidate for this strategy?
Question 2: What are your thoughts on purchasing BX:US for a long term hold?
Thank you for your insight on this.

Q: A family member would like to build a US dollar portfolio with US stocks. My thought would be to do it along the lines of the 5iR Cdn Balance Portfolio. For example, JPMorgan would be the US stock for the BNS. With this in mind, and being able to tolerate risk and for a long-term intention, like 10 years, what would you suggest the 15+ position US portfolio would look like?....Thanks...Tom

Q: I have owned blackstone for years and done well with it. Do you think I should take advantage of the run up in the Share price recently and sell it or is the company still fairly valued and poised for continuing its run? My position size is not unreasonably high so not to worry about portfolio weight. Thanks

Q: Three or four years ago I bought Blackstone as my vehicle for diversification into the area of private equity. I mainly chose it over the others in this area because of the yield it offered.
When we descended into Covid hell last spring I viewed it as a time of opportunity for companies like Blackstone, picking off struggling companies or providing funding. Others might include BAM and Berkshire Hathaway.
Since then I've noticed Blackstone making multiple news announcements of purchases they've made.
What's your opinion here? Am I being biased by my own opinion or do you also think the company is setting up a bright future?
