Q: A year ago I asked for your opinion on these stocks to incorporate into my current portfolio of banks, utilities, REITS, infrastructure, etc. My first purchase was BAM With the current market decline I see an opportunity to purchase another stock. From a technical view which looks most attractive? From a fundamental view which looks the most attractive ? Which would you purchase next? Thanks. Derek

Q: Good Morning,

I have recently retired and need to improve yield. The above noted holdings have a low yield or have not performed well.

Can you please rate from first to sell down to last to sell and possibly provide some basic reasoning.

Thanks very much.

Q: Further to my question of March 19, I have received the funds which represent 15% of my non registered account ( and 7.5 % of total portfolios).
I have added the hedged ZQQ to the list as I have no tech exposure in any portfolio and have a US property being 20% of my total assets, thus providing adequate currency diversification.
I used one third of the new funds to purchase BAM and am now looking for the next 2. Your suggestion and reasons are appreciated. Derek

Q: I will be converting my RSP to a RIF next year resulting in my income increasing some 50 % and with money I do not not need for my present lifestyle. The account is full of banks, reits, pipelines, infrastructure , utilities etc., as is my non registered account which is the same size as the RSP. Does it make sense to adjust the non registered account to more growth stocks , and hence less income ? I I have listed some prospective stocks. A crazy idea to reduce income and perhaps this is outside your.venue but any thoughts are appreciated. Derek

Comparing the top four companies in the the waste disposal business.
Ranking in terms of market capitalization (US$) is WM ($45.0B) , RSG ($27.1B), WCN ($26.9B) and GFL ($6.2B).
Ranking in terms of dividend yield is WM (2.04%) , RSG (1.90%), WCN (0.72 %) and GFL (0.20 %). All companies declare their dividends in US$ and WCN / GFL are eligible Canadian dividends.
The after tax yield on the US domiciled companies (WM and RSG) is higher than the Canadian domiciled companies (GFL and WCN).
1 - Overall, regardless of country domicile, please rank the companies in order of preference and why?
2 - Which is the better Canadian company WCN or GFL from a growth perspective as the yield is minimal?
3 - Any other companies that I should review?
Thank you
