Q: Hi Team. I have taxable losses in CSV (-36.5%) and UCTT (-53.9%) I am thinking of selling them and replacing CSV with PLC ( I appreciate the later is C$) and UCTT with MKSI. The switch depends on whether the substitutes have similar expectations going forward. The alternative is to simply sell CSV and UCTT and wait 30 days to buy them back. Which strategy do you think makes more sense at the present time?

Q: First thanks for the swift turnaround response for ADBE, yesterday. 
Now my focus is on Consumer Discretionary stock positions. I hold Canadian positions in ATD, BYD, DOL and PLC and then for the US, AMZN and HD. 
For the Cdn positions, all exceed the target weightings. But for AMZN, which I recently added to, the portfolio for this stock is underweight by 1.2% and for HD, underweight by 1.3%.
At this time, the total CD sector portfolio weighting is  13.5% compared to a target of 10% but me, comfortable going overweight this sector as I shy away from energy and materials.
I'm inclined to add to Home Depot next. What are your thoughts about adding to HD, especially looking forward to a brighter horizon?
Another one is ATZ which I have held in the past. Wondering about buying ATZ in the near term or wait awhile???
If there are other companies in the CD or Cyclic sector that you think I should consider for the brighter future, I'd be pleased to know about them.........Much thanks..............Tom

Q: What one to select?...that is the question for me. GOOG is trading at 20.6 x earnings and AMT at 43.1 x earnings. Wow what a difference in this metric.....Guess I go with GOOG, right?!......(Even thought keen to add to AMT)
Then there is PLC...keen to top up, like overweight as some investors are bailing out, while future revenue growth is expected to be strong for the rest of this year and 2023. PLC is now trading at 27.4 times earnings. Time to add, right?!...........Tom

Q: I received the following in one of my TD alerts:

"Park Lawn ranks poorly in our screen as consensus estimates were significantly lowered after its Q2/F22 earnings miss last month. The 2022 consensus earnings estimate was reduced 19.4% and the 2023 estimate was lowered 11.6% (Exhibit 4). As a result, Park Lawn has seen its ranking in our QGM tumble to 223, and we are removing it from our small-cap portfolio."

Should I be selling PLC?
