Q: Public storage and cell tower stocks are down significantly this year. Were they simply over-valued previously? Assuming interest rates will stabilize, do you feel that they may offer above average returns going forward? Your favourites listed on US and Canadian exchanges?

Q: Hello,

I'm hoping you might be able to steer me towards several suitable, longer term, investments.

If you were assembling a portfolio of equity investments today, from which you REQUIRED an overall average yield of at least 4%, with a further need for that yield to either keep pace with or to outpace the rate of inflation in coming years; which 5 Canadian and which 5 USA equities would you select to include within your portfolio?

1) Independent of any consideration of a desire for diversity of sector?

2) If diversity were to be considered to be of importance?

Please deduct as many question credits as you feel may be appropriate.

Thank you!

Q: My long-term interest in VZ was partially founded on it's extremely low correlation with almost every other equity and fixed income category. I am "off" VZ due its recent issues and am curious as to whether you are aware of any similarly low correlation, reliably high income alternatives?

Q: I am looking for a couple of US dividend-paying companies that provide decent yields for retirement income. Several of the companies that you have suggested are providing growing dividends and some equity growth but the yields are low. I am currently looking at AMGN, BX and EXR. I am leaning towards BX as I think property could be poised for growth but I am concerned that the dividend seems to jump around. Were special dividends paid in the past few years or has the payout been negatively affected by declining rental income?

Which of the three would you prefer given the desire for increased income, stability of income, future dividend growth and some equity growth? (or are there other suggestion you may have)

Appreciate your insight.

Q: Hi team,

I recently trimmed my position in NVDA and I would like to add the proceeds to my dividend income.

I currently owe BAC, BX, DFS, DUK, HAS, GLW, KMI, NVT, PAC, SWKS, VZ, WMB AND ABBV for dividend and some growth. I would like to add one or more US company to this list.

Any suggestions to add to this list? And, what company would you replace in this list if you have any concerns?

Oh, I'm not a big fan of tobacco companies.

Thank you for the great service and I really appreciate your insights.

Q: REIT's are looking interesting at these prices. If you were to invest in only 1 REIT, can be US or Canada. With the thesis being you want to capitalize on the punished sector and get a quality name that has been beaten up and has a lot of upside versus a low risk name that hasn't come down much that will likely not have a ton of upside either. Which reit would you chose to invest in? Thx

Q: Hi Peter,

You had this qn on Jan. 23, 2023:

My sister wants to invest in 10 Canadian stocks that are relatively safe in terms of capital preservation but which offer possible dividend and growth . Hopefully the stocks would be in different sectors that you would recommend.

Now, for a 5 yr + time period, what 11 US quality stock from each sector would you recommend ?

Please deduct as many credits as necessary.

Thanks a million.

Q: CCI dropped 8% after hours on friday. The only news that I can find is a rather large downgrade by Truist Securities but there was a similar downgrade of AMT without the same reaction. Do you know if this downgrade was the reason for the move in CCI and, if so, the reason for the downgrades. Otherwise, why the move in CCI and would you see this as a buying opportunity?
Thanks for your insight.

Q: Is it a good time to start buying REITS or should I wait until 1/2 way through next year when we know more about this recession that everyone is predicting?

Can you recommend 1 or 2 CDN and 1 or 2 US for a long term hold?

Q: Seems to me that the market must be offering up some strong, well run companies that, for some strange reason, are trading at much lower prices than what they deserve. These kinds companies pay a good dividend, have a strong balance sheet and their forward earnings look good and dependable. (perhaps you call these kinds of companies 'value' companies). Anway, here's my question, I would like to begin investing in them and would appreciate your opinion on a number of these value companies that I should consider adding to my portfolio. Perhaps 6 Canadian and 6 American. Thanks as always for your appreciated opinion.
