Q: Hi,
Inflation came in hot again today in the U.S. Do you guys have a view of the dot plot? Some economists see the Fed hiking rates 5-6 times this year with a 50 BPS thrown in for good measure. Others see a less aggressive FED with 3-4 rate hikes.

Also, the renewable energy names all seem to be making a nice bottom in the past month or so. Could they be signaling that the rate hikes may now be baked into these names?
Thanks again.

Q: Renewable energy has been beaten up over the last year and seems to be fairly cheap at the moment. With quantitative tightening and raising interest rates on the horizon, would it be prudent to wait to see what happens with inflation before moving into this sector? Which of these names do you prefer? Thanks.

Q: I'm down about 15% on BIP.UN and am thinking of a tax loss sale and purchasing either NPI or BLX; and then reentering BEP in January. I currently hold CPX and AQN.

A similar question had been asked previously in June, and 5i's recommendation was either NPI or BLX. Has anything changed with these companies since June? What would be your preference for a short term hold today and why?

Many thanks!

Q: Hi 5i Team.

Really enjoy this service.

I am primarily an income investor and will be retiring within the next few months.

No pension.

Need to make some adjustments to my non-income holdings.

Have most of the Income Portfolio.

Looking for 5 - 10 new ideas. Preferably with a little higher yield but still reasonably safe and enough growth to keep up with inflation.

Thanks very much for you help.
