Many thanks,

Q: My wife has $75,000 to invest in her TFSA, in which she is also holding 100 shares of TD Bank along with 100 shares of TD in an RSP. She is retiring in a month has a defined pension plan, CPP, OAS. But she is still looking for dividend income either monthly or quarterly to supplement her income.
We are looking at going with "Beating the TSX Portfolio 2022" but also looking at ZWU and ZWC which look like they could bring in more income but higher fees. What are your thoughts? Thank you.

Q: We have 4 positions in SU; content to wait for the cumulative effect of cash flow and buybacks. There has been other advise given to us, to switch over to CNQ.
We have little knowledge of CNQ and such a move would require research. I don't want to do this homework, if it's a marginal idea to begin with.
Your help would be appreciated.

Q: Good morning! I have a question on investing knowledge in general, and the companies mentioned above are what I will use as my personal example... because Iíve read from the team at 5i that it doesnít make much sense to hold out on a loss. Please by all means correct me if I am wrong, example: I bought into SU,(I am -28%) and QST, (I am -60%). XBC (I am -59%). This doesnít bother me nor does it cause me any financial suffering to hold, and I know there is no magical answer... does a young man ride it out and just wait patiently? I love SU AND QST before the pandemic and still enjoy their presence in my portfolio but here I ask myself this, am I missing gaining opportunity in the markets? My money is sitting negative, slowly, slowly coming back, where a I could suffer the loss and get to work else where? Thank you!

Q: I intend crystallizing a loss on CNQ and was trying to decide on buying a company in roughly the same business so that I stay in the market segment. SU might be the obvious choice but have some already. Can you suggest some alternatives from the those noted or others, preferably with a divided.
Btw I find the dividend updates very useful.
Thanks
