Q: I have owned MCR for quite some time and wanted to get out of it but I was down about 40% for the longest time, Now there's news its going private at 4 bucks a share and the price has skyrocketed. At the 3.92 its currently trading at I'm only down 5%, so would this be a good time to exit? When would I receive the cash of 4$ a share if I continue to hold?

Q: I have a less than 1% position in MCR and am looking at topping it up. My only other Energy position is ENB which is 4%
Are you still comfortable with the prospects for this company ? If so, given the low volume, any suggestions on how to approach buying ?My thought was to put in a limit order for 2.60 and just let that sit until the end of December. Any suggestions would be welcome. Many thanks

Q: We have very little tech. exposure in our portfolios as a % - so minimal. Own IGM & ARKK in USD portfolio - IGM for 4 years - done very well. In TFSA, own STC, VHI, XIT ETF. All the others are on my list to purchase as not. I would buy equal positions - so, of those we do not own which three would you consider the best in the short and long term. I am mostly a dividend grower investor - companies that increase them every year; however, trying to add a bit of tech. Maybe there others not shown that meet my criteria?

Q: Hi 5i team,
I have XBC in my TFSA with a 50% loss. As you mentioned before, it probably will take about a year for the company to prove itself. There wonít be much upside for this stock in the near future. In order to put the money to better use, Iím going to sell XBC now and use the proceeds to purchase another company hopefully at the cusp of positive move. Iím thinking of ATA / EGLX / MCR from the Growth Portfolio. Iím looking for high revenue growth and strong cash flow. Which of these do you think have the most upside potential in the next 12 months and why or would you suggest another name? Thanks.

Q: Hey Guys, been a few months since we've heard your thoughts on MCR. I'm flip flopping on this one because its clearly underperformed due to being tied to the o&g sector. But we've seen other o&g companies and even service companies (drilling not pipeline) recovering, while MCR still heads down. However I still see potential here, very high insider ownership, trading below book value, still profitable, reducing shares, decent roic, and 2020 guidance has been updated twice in the last 6 months to 250M. Yes the share price still heads down. I feel this one has the potential to increase dramatically or am I holding on to this one too long? Thx
