Q: Good morning,

My plan is to purchase $50K of BX:US in my US$ non registered account but have insufficient US$ in my US$ non registered account to complete the transaction.

To save on the currency exchange cost, I'm thinking of purchasing approx $60K of ENB.CA and then journal the stock to my US$ non registered account.
Once ENB:CA has been journaled to my US$ non registered account, I would then sell the ENB:US stock and purchase BX:US for a long term hold.

Question1: Is ENB:CA a good candidate for this strategy?
Question 2: What are your thoughts on purchasing BX:US for a long term hold?
Thank you for your insight on this.

Q: This is my margin portfolio, all position weightings are between 3%-5%.

The projected yield is 3.31% with a 3-5 year hold.

I realize 24 positions is a bit overkill but I can't seem to choose which to remove, which would you recommend?

What positions would you add to the portfolio?

Take as many credits as needed.

Thanks for the great service

Q: Greetings 5i team,
I am looking to sell my shares in IPL (hopefully at a higher bid than currently offered by Brookfield Infrastructure) and replace them with another pipeline company. I can either add to my current position in ENB, or put the money into TRP. Can you please compare the balance sheet strength of both companies, future growth prospects, and dividend growth prospects? ENB recently raised its dividend by 3%, while TRP raised its dividend by 7%. Is TRP the better income stock moving forward? I'm a long-term investor with a 10-yr + investment horizon.
Many thanks,
Brian

Q: ENB pays a good dividend and seems poised to do well; however, why would an otherwise dividend-oriented investor not sell somewhat out-of-the-money naked puts? If the market corrects to the point you are assigned on your puts, you are merely forced to buy at a price featuring a superior dividend yield while having collected a put premium. Thoughts? (I.e. about ENB and/or other stocks for which this might be a good strategy)

Q: Hi Peter and team
1. Can you see the new US Prst energy policies impacting ENB share price favourably?
2. Also, NIO dropped over 7% last Friday -- I assume this is normal volatility for NIO. What would you see as the key strengths and weaknesses of NIO going forward?
Thank you

Q: I sold ENB for tax loss purposes. My interest is capital gains and a good dividend. Should I replace the sold holding with ENB, KMI, PPL, or TRP? I like both ENB and TRP but find it hard to choose between the two. What would you recommend among the four and why?

Q: Hi
We are considering tax loss selling ENB -- we've only lost about 8% on ENB. This is because of the trend towards renewables. We don't rely on the dividend, although it is quite good at over 10%. You said ENB plans to continue to increase the dividend going forward. But if the stock price doesn't rise as a result of policies of the new US Administration, or if it goes down, would that cause ENB to reconsider their high dividend? What would cause ENB to adjust the dividend? It is a nice buffer to a drop in share price.

We are also interested get concerned and and replacing it with SEDG. You mentioned on 3 Nov that you "would consider it a 'slow' buy with a partial position into the decline. The shareholder base may churn a bit on these results and it might stay week for a month or so." Do you still hold to this view?
Given the renewables trend, we are considering moving from ENB to SEDG.
Thanks once again for your very useful advice.
