Q: Hi, I have a 2.5% position in SCHW (down 25%) and am looking to sell while keeping exposure to the financial sector.

MKTX and CME score highly on my evaluations and others listed are pretty decent too. Curious on your thoughts on a suitable, safe replacement.

This is in my LIRA and I'm looking to hold for 10+ years (was also the case for SCHW, but I'm concerned wrt their exposure from their long term bonds).

Q: I believe part of Lorraine’s Aug 24 question was about the NEO exchange itself, and whether it is investible as a company in its own right (apart from the question about buying MSFT on NEO)
NEO was acquired by CBOE Global Markets recently. CBOE does trade publicly but on the BATS exchange. Hope it is Ok to mention this.
I would love for 5i to do a review of the various N.A. exchanges sometime and rank them as investments.
I owned Archipelgo back in the day, and have held X for a long time. Exchanges seem to be good long term investments. Which U.S. exchange would 5i favour at this point, if it were to choose only one?

Q: Odlum Brown has just recommended to sell CME and replace it with BLK. Seems like an odd time to sell CME as my understanding is that the recent increased volatility should be good for it, which is likely why it is actually up over the recent period!!

BLK also looks good, especially after its recent pull back.

I currently have 2% of my portfolio in CME but do not have BLK.

Would 5i support holding CME and initiating in BLK or does it seem reasonable to exit CME on its recent strength and pick up some BLK? I have 15% of my portfolio in financials at the moment.

Q: Hello Peter and Ryan,
I was thinking of putting money in CME, SQ, GS, GMP (toronto), XAU(toronto), and MOGO(toronto) as a means of getting myself started on investing in bitcoin. Any comments? Lastly, when a company like CMED is reluctant for a takeover, does this normally imply the company is looking for more money on the table or feels it can do it on its own? I know that is a speculative question but in general as it seems CMED is not backing down. Thanks very much.
