Q: Hi folks,
I am looking to replace GILD in my TFSA. I currently hold ABBV, LLY, PFE and WELL in other accounts. I am looking for a name that pays a good dividend and has some potential for growth. Can you suggest a couple of names I can take a look at or should I add one of the names I already hold.

Q: Hi - if inflation stays persistent and rates remain firm or a bit higher, what sectors would you favour? Has the market already identified this and they are they already outperforming? If not, what names would you recommend for purchase at their current prices?
As always, thank you for your insight.

Q: One gets weary of the seemingly endless legal battles that JNJ continues to suffer. I have held on to shares assuming all sides would surely give in to battle-fatigue. My assumption looks wrong, especially after yet another defeat by JNJ on Friday July 28. Worth holding or move on? As always, your opinion backed by your own reasoning would be much appreciated. If you think best trim or sell, what dividend payer in health care would you favor today (US only).

Q: Hi 5i,
I plan on purchasing these 4 companies to cover off my exposure to the US markets.

What is your opinion of this portfolio? Any other addition?

Weighting in the Portfolio is a consideration, so I only have 4 positions.

Is now a good time to start accumulating, and it what order?

Thanks for the opinion.

Q: Which of JNJ and GILD do you think is the better quality company for a long term investment? In response to other readers questions, you seem to like GILD, but I worry about its dependence on HIV drugs. Is it diversified enough? JNJ seems more diversified, but I worry about its talc liabilities and slow growth. Will JNJ be a stronger company after the Kenvue spin-off?
