Q: Just looking for an opinion,

In what scenario does this ever get back to it's glory days before the oil fallout years ago? I have owned this for sometime in a TFSA and wondering if I should just keep holding due to not being able to harvest tax loss or take the loss and move the proceeds into something else in a different industry where over time I could recoup the loss.

Q: This question is about first things first. I would like to add to ATZ which I'm underweight but am already overweight Consumer Discretionary. At the same time, I am underweight Health Care and could add to this sector. Now for the lead up to the question - If the first principle is tp focus on the portfolio, then I should go with the health care stock rather than ATZ. Is that right?!.....What a quandary, eh?!......Tom

Q: Hello,
If US legalization on cannabis does not happen during Biden's term, would curaleaf still be a good buy? The company appears to be firing on all cylinders and yet the stock hardly moves. It only trades over the counter and cdnx given the current status of legalization in US. I am sure if it traded on nasdaq or NYSE, there would be more exposure. Is it worth holding or consider buying more shares? Is Aritzia a good long term stock given its current guidance and numbers..? Thanks very much.

Q: Hi Team,
Three part question. Firstly, I know as professionals you do not recommend “winners” climbing to over a certain % of ones Portfolio. However, if early investors in Apple or shopify for example would of bailed ; some would not be millionaires now. Or in some cases , billionaires where the CEO’s are holding most their wealth in their company stock. How can one hope to land that “life changing trade”(1000% or more) if one keeps trimming eternal winners ? Does it not make sense if a person finds that “winning company” to keep holding of goals are set high? GSY one of those stocks, if you were to choose the likelihood of a solid company with good prospects, to choose to be overweight in and aim for that life changing 1000% move over a 10 yr or so period? I ask this company specifically because I am overweight this company and this is my goal. (Up over 200% so far and metrics still make this stock look cheap to me)

Thirdly… if you were to speculate a few different companies, either US or Cnd as your “best guess’s” so to speak of having the likelihood of producing 1000% gains over the next 10yrs or so; what would they be? Thanks for your input and deduct credits as you see fit. Thanks

Q: Hi,

If not already asked, what are your thoughts on the most recent news for Aritzia wrt acquiring a men's clothing line? I for one had not heard of this brand so not sure how it might stack up to other men's clothing brands. How accretive might it be?
I took a 1/2 position just before the announcement so good timing on my part. :) Street seems to approve of the purchase.

Also wrt ATS Automotive recent acquisition....thoughts on this? How accretive or what might it mean to additional revenues/profits going forward?
I don't own this but am watching it closely.
