Q: Thanks for your ongoing non-biased advice.
I have three DOGS in my non registered account ...... Baylin Technologies (BYL) with No Dividend, Cipher Pharma (CPH) with No Dividend and Pason Systems (PSI) that has a 3.5% Dividend.
Please analyze each account for future growth prospects, survivability etc.
My strategy is to double-down and buy more of each stock in my wife's non registered account during tax loss season because her income is very low ......... then wait 30 days and sell the above stocks after 30 days in my registered account either this year or next year.
Hope this strategy makes

Q: Hi team,

With 22 tech stocks weighting some 34% of my portfolio, I assume you would recommend that I rationalize my approach for a better diversification, both in my tech sector and in my portfolio as a whole.

To accomplish that, while keeping a strong growth approach, could you indicate which are, in your view, 1) the « must own » stocks, in order of importance 2) those which could be dropped because of « double emploi » or high risk, 3) those missing to properly cover the tech sector ?

Please feel free to use as many credits as you see fit.

Gratefully yours,

Jacques IDS

Q: Once upon a time I owned this equity; there was some news today "that it has issued 623,406 common shares to fund interest due on June 30, 2020 on its 6.5% Convertible Unsecured Debentures (the "Debentures"). 355,840 common shares were issued to debenture holders that held 58.8% of the debentures, these holders having elected to receive common shares in lieu of cash interest.....Additionally, 14 insiders, including C-suite, Management and Directors, purchased 267,566 common shares through a private placement.....The Company is applying the proceeds from the private placement to pay the interest on the June 30, 2020 payment and, to the extent of any excess proceeds, the December 31, 2020 interest payment." What do you think is going on here? The stock has been on quite a slide; is this positive, or more bad news? Thanks for your excellent service.
