Q: Recent XYL results and the stock drops 7%. I've held for years and it has been one of my more volatile and poorer performing stocks. Yet even after today's action I'm up 15%.

I really want to own XYL largely b/c I firmly believe we'll need more 'engineered' water solutions. However, I'm ready to sell and try something different.

Please tell me why I should continue to hold XYL and not sell to buy WAT, AWK, DHR or and ETF like PHO.

Q: In addition to my growth stocks (40% of my CDN portfolio), I have 'safe stocks' RY, T, ACQ, BIP.un in Canada and in US, I have AQN, AEP, NEE. (about 20% in US portfolio, so far). I notice that in the last year, these lo beta, ‘safe’ stocks have been performing as well as growth stocks. Because I think we’re in for more volatility, I’m interested in buying more lo-beta-with-some-growth stocks for the next few years. What do you think of these options complementing what I have? Can you pick two?

Q: I would like to buy a stock or ETF that deals with water treatment, possibly desalination, or purifying water. This would be a US holding, but not necessarily aimed at treating water in the US. What suggestions might you have? I thought about American WaterWorks, and would like an idea of what else is out there, especially for desalination treatment. Thank you.
