Investment Q&A

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

Q: Would like to create a 10-15 stock portfolio out the securities listed above, to meet my retirement income and growth needs, for a long term hold.
CPD is my current, imperfect proxy for the fixed income portion of my portfolio.
CVE, CNQ, SU would be the only opportunistic (and highly correlated) purchases, to take advantage of the current low valuations for the petroleum industry. These would be sold if the oil & gas market's prospects change.
Please rank all the securities on the basis of return potential over 2-3 years as the primary criteria,
Please eliminate any stock which does not have adequate balance sheet strength, from the lineup.
Please add to the lineup all securites that would facilitate the creation of a defensible, well-diversified, long term portfolio - especially if it is in a sector that I have overlooked.

Thank you for your expertise, and willingness to help me sleep a bit more soundly.

Q: I hold some ING in my US margin account and was puzzled by this statement from the ING report of Feb 12, 2019

Proposed dividend of €1.10 per share
In line with the Group's dividend policy, a proposal to distribute a dividend of €1.10 per share will be presented to the Annual General Meeting of shareholders on 11th June 2019, representing a distribution rate of 36%. This dividend will be payable in cash or shares, according to the holder's preference.

Is this an annual dividend?
If not annual how often is it paid?
Is one share of an ADR = one ING share?
In USD should I consider that about $1.25?

Thanks....

Q: Hello Team,
I was reading a recomendation on ING-N recently which seemed favourable.
It indicated that ING was well capitalized, had a yield of 5.5%, a PE of 10 and that it was vallued at less than tangible book value,sounds ok to me.
I get that it is not something you would normally follow but any comments/insight would be appreciated. That is bescause your feedback is always balanced and astute!
thanks so much.
