Q: Hi 5i
Each of these stocks represent between 2-3 1/2 % of my
portfolio.
Thinking of boosting some up to between 4 1/2 to 5%.
None are at a loss.
Any thoughts of an order to do this?
Thx
Gerry

Q: Retired investor looking to reduce bank holdings. Currently have ~1/2 positions in TD and BAC and full positions in NA and RY. I would appreciate your input. Could you rank, giving rationale, ATS, CLS, ABT, HST, LEN, for upside potential? Would you recommend starting 1/2 positions (or easing into) any of them at this time? Please take credits as you see fit. Thanks.

Q: I always kick myself when I come to realize a missed opportunity and tell myself that next time, i'll recognize the trend and take advantage of it.

This is me asking that question now.

What 5 US and 5 CDN positions, in your opinion are very much out of favour right now but have quality fundamentals with an excellent chance for share appreciation over the next 3 years?

Q: Dear Peter et al:

Thanks to your consistent answers not only to my questions but to other subscribers, I have taken a position in RY, BN and TD. BNS may follow soon.

However having browsed through literally hundreds of questions on US Financial stocks, I don't see the same consistent answers. JPM seems to get your nod mostly. Even that doesn't get the nod with the fervor with which you endorse RY for example. In general you seem to be less enthusiastic about the US big banks.

What are the US banks that you would rank in the same order as you often do in Canadian banks? i.e. equivalent to RY/TD/BNS.

Thank you.

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.

Stephan

Q: Hi

We still have 500 shares of GSY in our RRSP accounts

Thinking of selling and buying BAC. Both are beaten up. However I am thinking BAC
has a better chance of recovering in a shorter time frame with less government interference.

Your comments or other suggestions in the US are most welcome.

We already have CROX, BRK.B, CELH, PERI, NIO, INMD, LNTH, IFRA,XYLD, IYW

Thank you

Mike
