Q: As you know, both of these companies are currently undergoing "strategic reviews" which presumably are related to potential buyouts from companies expressing interest. I agree with your assessment that successful buyouts would entail prices at least $2 per share above existing price levels. I am surprised that buyers are not loading up at these prices given the significant possibility of such a price surge withing a 2-3 month timeframe. What am I missing?

Q: I took the big dividend from ECN - 15k bought three 5K positions VHI (-20%) STC (-80%) & CTS (-50%) to diversify the growth portfolio in my TSFA, losing percentages are app. are these positions worth keeping? My other thought is to sell and put the money back into ECN where the management has a proven track record of managing the risk and creating value for longer term shareholders

Q: I've been watching ECN over the past little while through 5i and note that they seem to be one of your favourite companies due to strong mgt. Noted your answers to some questions on Jan 24/25 and you felt that they have strong upside potential over the next 12-24 months. How risky would you say an investment in ECN is....say relative to a company like GSY? Thank you.

Q: Growth investor, high risk tolerance, who enjoys dividends as well. Im currently sitting close to 21% in Financial Services, a combination of long held holdings with big gains; GSY, SLF, newer purchases down slightly; ZEB, HCAl, and the newest and worst performer ECN. Stock positions are close to 5% each, I add or trim accordingly, ETF's are smaller. I wrestle with knowing holding good companies long term is the way to outperform, against opportunity costs of holding underperformers and or overweighting the wrong sectors for the year. If you managed your own $, what % would you hold here, if trimming, what order ? Emotionally it's much easier to trim GSY with big gains than ECN at a loss, but then there is the trimming the winner and holding the looser thing?
