Q: I need in increase my portfolio weightings in Consumer Cyclical and Utilities. I currently hold AQN, BIP.UN and FTS in Utilities in roughly equal amounts and hold QSR and LNF for Consumer Cyclical with QSR double the holding of LNF. Should I add to my current positions to increase my weighting in both sectors or consider adding new stocks?

Q: Hi 5iTeam - There seems to have been a substantial amount of insider selling in both of these companies over the past few months. Could you please comment on this as well as the overall insider holdings in each of the two companies. It looks like both companies are quite similar in their business model. Could you please let me know if this is an accurate assessment. Also if you were to choose one or the other for an investment which one would it be or are they relatively equal. Thank you.

Q: Seems the "cold war" with China is about to heat up, what with Biden and other nations about to try and corral China. At the same time, China is putting restrictions on it's own national companies listed on foreign stock exchanges. Then there is GOOS and QSR wanting to expand into China and their respective P/E multiples reflect this expected growth. With this changing and rather negative context, is it time to selling positions in GOOS and QSR?......Tom

Q: Hello guys,
I was hoping you could rate the current buy-ability of these industrial discretionary companies (byd,doo,mg,tt,sis) and of these clothing discretionary companies (goos, lulu,nke, atz) with 10 being a great buy, for new money. Any concerns, and is there anything similar that you like better?

Q: For a stock price to double in 5 years requires an average gain of about 15% compounded, annually. Would you please rank these 12 stocks in order for the likelihood, in your opinion, they will double in price in the next 5 years. Roughly how many of these 12 would you expect to achieve that target? Assuming no major long term market melt down which would preclude good stock performance over this period. CTS, DCBO, DND, DOO, ECN, GOOS, GSY, KXS, MG, NVEI, PHO, TIXT.

Q: I'm trying to follow your growth portfolio but i still dont have positions into ATA, DOL, GDI, GOOS, IWO, MCR, MMX, OTEX and TRI.

Among these, what would be your top 3 to add in the current market? And what would you consider an interesting fork price to iniate a position for these 3?

Do you think any of them could prepare a round of financement?

Q: Similar question to the one I asked yesterday. This is regarding some small/medium sized consumer and consumer-related type Canadian stocks. How would you feel about holding each of these stocks in your portfolio, on a 1-10 scale, with a 10 being you definitely want the stock in your portfolio, a 1 being a stock you want no part of, and a 5 being a stock you are basically indifferent about. As part of broadly diversified portfolio, looking for total return over the next 5+ years, comfortable with risk. ACQ, AW.UN, DOO, ECN, GOOS, HTL, LNF, MTY, SIS, SVI, ZZZ.
