Investment Q&A

Not investment advice or solicitation to buy/sell securities. Do your own due diligence and/or consult an advisor.

Q: 4 disasters in my cash account these year. Each position down between 30-45%.

How would you proceed?
Can you please give a brief comment on each security with a recommendation to either sell or hold. If selling is advised to crystallize a loss, what would be a proxy? And lastly, would you buy any of them back after the 30 day window?

Please feel free to deduct credits as you deem fit.

Thank you.

Q: I'm interested in starting positions in companies involved in the push to a more energy efficient future. I've had a look at CCO AND ALB and I'd appreciate your opinion as to which one is the better choice currently. Also, is it too early to be taking positions in these sectors or are these companies capable of strong capital gains in the next year or two? Finally, do you think there are better companies to invest in in these sectors?

Q: Further to my earlier question regarding covered calls, can you please suggest some higher volatility US names that would be suitable. Your 2015 CMS article advises the use of companies with no debt and excess cash that are more volatile than the market. I would imagine this points mostly to mega cap tech names, but some diversity in the list would be appreciated. Thank-you.
