Q: Hi,
I am low on energy and pipelines, as ENB.TO is my only holding in this sector. Most of the available cash I have on hand is in a US dollar RSP account, which I do not have to convert to a RIF for another 4 years. I've listed some stocks that have my attention, and wonder if it is reasonable to purchase now, as they're mostly at new 52 week highs, except OGS and VZ. Do you think these will still have room for further gains, or am I essentially too late and taking a risk these will roll over quickly as we inch closer to a US recession? Are there others you would prefer that aren't listed and any of the above that would be higher risk in this market environment? Take the appropriate points for the multiple questions. Thanks for you continued valuable insight!

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: How likely is is that the Feds permit the merger of Rogers and Shaw but then allow foreign ownership of telecoms in Canada. If so, which of the two, Telus or Bell, is likely to be bought out? Even if they are not bought out, Bell and Telus might still do better with less competition. Or the Feds may impose conditions on the merger that benefit BCE and Telus. In any event, I am not sure there is any downside to owning Bell or Telus, and the real possibility of capital appreciation. I leave out Cogeco in my analysis as the controlling family appears not interested in a takeover.

Q: ALREADY HAVE A 5 PERCENT HOLDING IN TELUS AND AM THINKING OF ADDING BCE TO THE SAME POSITION. IS THIS TO MUCH IN A 68 YEAR OLD RETIREES PORTFOLIO? MY THINKING IS REDUCING RISK IN CASE OF A SIZEABLE CORRECTION AS THE GAINS HAVE BEEN ADDING UP. IF YOU HAVE A COUPLE OF BETTER INCOME IDEAS IDEAS THAT WOULD BE APRRECIATED. THANKYOU
