Q: Could you please recommend a couple of replacement(s) for Great Cdn Gaming? It can be US or CDN and I'd like the replacement companies to have great management teams and be in the same sector. Companies in the leisure and entertainment space you think will come out of this crisis bigger and better. It doesn't necessarily have to be a casino company. Thanks a lot.

Q: Stuck in the country, maybe soon to be stuck in the province. Decided to explore my local lakes and decided to buy a boat. I figure a lot of others are in a similar position. A bit of further thinking got me into the idea of Brunswick Corp. Looks good by the numbers, and I want more US would you be a buyer? My current portfolio is pretty conservative and I wouldn't mind mixing it up a bit, as I have 15-20 year time frame.
Thanks for your thoughts

Q: I would like to have a little fun with this question. Imagine a boxing match between Canadian companies and American companies...each round is represented by a sector so lets say it is a fight gone bad and there are extra rounds covering 11 sectors. Please pick a favourite Canadian Contender and a strong American contender for each round and who wins the round. Example Round 10 Technology Red corner Constellation Software vs Blue corner Microsoft. Won by Microsoft or Constellation Software. The rules...If you wish to give reasons why the round went one way or another, it's your choice. A good clean fight use the criteria of your investment strategies. The point...I am curious if the Canadian Companies stack up and in what areas I should be looking at South of the border. Thank you

Q: Hi team, I noticed some of the pipelines are getting caught in a downdraft to add to the pain of my oil company holding. However I was thinking of buying a few pipelines like VSN and IPL in my TFSA, but before I do I wanted you opinion on the relatively new midstream ETF: HOG.Is this ETF too small at this point to buy a position, or should I just go back to buying individual names like VSN and IPL. Thanks as always, you are a great team.
