Q: I have the above stocks in my TFSA and they are all down and smaller positions. I also have GSY, KXS, SHOP, TOI, ECN, SIS, SU, MEG and ENB in this 300K TFSA (thanks to SHOP and 5i). I am wondering about topping up 2-3 of the above down stocks or something new with this year's contribution. My usual approach has just been to top up the losers but this market has me struggling for ideas. Would you add to any of the losers above or do you have 2-3 new suggestions for me. Thanks.

Q: HI,
you had mentioned recently that we could be in another historic buying opportunity for growthy small caps. along those lines...
this list contains some of my small cap/more speculative holdings. could you comment on these as a current buy, sell, or hold. I am a long term investor ( 5-many years). and if any are screaming "I am going to zero" (like Xebec). and do you have high conviction on any other small cap growth stocks presently? cheers

Q: These 4 stocks, held in my TFSA, in roughly equal proportions, total approximately 5 % of my registered and cash portfolios. All are down except for EIF. My TFSA is where I put my riskier growth stocks ( EIF slipping in there somehow). Each has their own theme and while I am in no hurry to sell, I am looking for your opinion on them while I conduct my semi annual review. Your comment on their strengths/weaknesses, growth potential, ,management , buy hold sell ,would be appreciated. Derek

Q: Above are three dogs I dumped at a loss in the last two months. I think there could be value in each of them when markets turn. Do you agree? Is there another small cap or two that you prefer over these three?

Q: Hi,
Best tax loss proxies for these four names? Also is there a $ limit to what you should sell for tax loss purposes because its a guarantee. For example, I'm down 15% on KEL but its only a small position. The $ value is only down $2k. So whether the $ loss value is small or not ($2k vs $10k), is it still better off to sell it for the tax loss every year end and move into a proxy name such as TVE? Or is it better just to hold? Thanks!
