Investment Q&A

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

Q: Good morning,

Thank you for all the pertinent insight.

My materials sector is currently light. Obviously the cyclical nature plays a role in that as well.

I am also looking for a current read on LIF.TO

Could you give me your current top picks. As well as a good entry price.

Please take the necessary credits.

Thank you very much.

Q: Hi!
The recent market decline has likely created buying opportunities. Would you be able to list about 20 companies that are "cheap" right now and back-up-the-truck-able?

Q: Hi Peter & team,
Energy and material stocks have pulled back quite a bit from their recent high, would now be a good time to buy TOU, NTR and TECK.B for TFSA or you donít see a significant uptrend in the next 6 -12 months? For new TFSA contribution, what are some of your top picks for US stocks and CDN stocks? Thanks.

Q: The Canadian ones of the 4 resource stocks above have dropped a considerable amount over a short period. The two US ones, have been underperforming for months. Is there any I should part company with?
FNKO on my Market Call List - over the past two years is one of the top performers. Would it be a good replacement as I intend to get out of at least one or two of the resource stocks mentioned above. Thank you,

Q: In your reply to the Danís June 27 question concerning NTR you said NTR is much larger, and much cheaper (4X earnings). When I look in your Market Data section I see no reference to 4X earnings for NTR. How was the number determined & where in the NTRís market data do I look for that number. Thanks Ö Cal

Q: In our unregistered, income account I recently sold LIF and have decided not to return to that stock after 30 days. Instead, planning to buy more of one or two of the existing stocks.

Since this is an income account, yield is important and also quite happy to see total account balance steadily increasing whilst tapping off the cash.


I need some help deciding which ones to add to, and have 3 criteria:
1. Best yield
2. Current portfolio weighting
3. Best value over next 5 to 10 years

1. From highest to lowest yield:
TCL.A, BCE, AQN, EIF, BNS, CPD, T, SLF, QSR, ZRE, RY, LNF, FTS, BEPC, NTR

2. From lowest to highest weighting:
ZRE, LNF, TCL.A, QSR, AQN, NTR, BEPC, SLF, CPD, T, BNS, EIF, BCE, RY, FTS

3. Can you please help me to rank these stocks from highest to lowest value / growth prospects, or if that is to big a task. Please recommend overall best 3 selections given my criteria.


Thanks,


Jim
