Q: Hi Peter,

How would you rank the following five Brookfield companies (BIP.UN, BIPC, BAM.A., BEP.UN, and BBU.UN) over a long-term hold with respect to risk-return? Which of the five securities has the highest risk and which one do you perceive has the lowest risk?

Your comments are much appreciated.

Q: What's your take on Brookfield Business Partners? Its stock value has been just about cut in half YTD and is currently at 7 PE which seems stupidly cheap. But I know Brookfield's entities can't always really be judged on PE multiples Why has this stock been hit as if it's a high-flying tech? And if the market is deeply undervaluing it might Brookfield buy it out as it did its real estate entity?

Q: Good Morning to 5I team.

You are big help in educating and making us make better decision every day. I have BAM.A and BBU.UN. Looking to add more to BBU.UN. Over the next 3 years do you see a better growth in BBU or would still prefer BAM.

I am looking at Xela. I see that have a global presence and they mention that they serve about 60% of the fortune 100 companies. What is your opinion on Management, Technology, Debt, Cashflow and past performance. Do you see a good growth potential over 5 years. Can one start a position in it at current level

Sector and weighting do not matter. Have a good risk appetite but not looking to gamble.

Q: Please list these companies in order of which to dispose off. They are in a RRSP with no tax complications and I would like to top up a pair of other positions. HLF, HR.UN and BBU. THANKYOU

Q: Every time I've looked at BAM or related companies I see a negative EPS (over a period of time). Everyone loves the parent and most of the subsidiaries and the buyers are usually rewarded. I don't understand how this works. I can't think of many companies with a similar profile of consistent success and apparently consistent losses. Is it all about cash flow?

Q: Good day,
I hold BEP.UN;BEPC;BBU;CCL.B;ENB;EMA;H;FTS;CTC; and BAM in a non registered account and thanks to you I have done very well following your Q & A and portfolios. I am down 43% in SU; down 23% in CPD; down 16% in IPL and 6% in POW. Would you add to the winners? Add to the temporary losers or ADD new ones. After today, am tempted to add to SU for sure. Have RRIF and TFSA with pretty balanced sectors. Overall, Overweight in Utilities, Financials and okay with that. Many thanks, Paul
