Investment Q&A

Not investment advice or solicitation to buy/sell securities. Do your own due diligence and/or consult an advisor.

Q: Would like to create a 10-15 stock portfolio out the securities listed above, to meet my retirement income and growth needs, for a long term hold.
CPD is my current, imperfect proxy for the fixed income portion of my portfolio.
CVE, CNQ, SU would be the only opportunistic (and highly correlated) purchases, to take advantage of the current low valuations for the petroleum industry. These would be sold if the oil & gas market's prospects change.
Please rank all the securities on the basis of return potential over 2-3 years as the primary criteria,
Please eliminate any stock which does not have adequate balance sheet strength, from the lineup.
Please add to the lineup all securites that would facilitate the creation of a defensible, well-diversified, long term portfolio - especially if it is in a sector that I have overlooked.

Thank you for your expertise, and willingness to help me sleep a bit more soundly.

Q: With more and more US states moving to legalize marijuana I feel it is just a matter of time before that is done at the federal level. I have a large position in these 3 names. I assume they will shift from big tobacco to big marijuana once it is legalized. I think there is big growth potential here. Would you agree with that assessment? Would there be something that could stop this from happening ie government not allowing these big players to dominate that industry?

Q: Hi 5i,

Thanks for the great. What are your thoughts on the tobacco stocks (Imperial Brands, Philip Morris, Altria, British American)?

These stocks seem cheap with amazing yields—but just keep getting cheaper. Is it time for me to take losses and move on?

Thank you!
