Q: I raised a fair bit of cash in my RIF as the Covid madness marched on. I think I would like to buy USDollars with probably 1/2 the cash and buy some US dividend paying stocks. I need the income and Iím very concerned that this current government is going to cripple ( if not destroy) our economy..
Iím looking at stocks like Verizon, but what would you suggest?
Thanks for the great work!

Q: Iím a little bit underwater in EXE, KMI and ALY and wondering what to do. I could keep on waiting patiently but the opportunity cost is bothering me. Should I buy more of each to lower my cost basis and then sell? I kind of think the first two were mistakes and of the three I was hoping to keep ALY, but Iíd like to know what you think of the prospects for each one (maybe just a few quick thoughts). Thanks a lot.

Q: Hello Peter and Ryan,
Without knowing my portfolio details, I know it is hard to give advice. However, I do have a diversified portfolio and am looking to add a long term growth stock and a dividend paying stock without using my cash. I have to sell a stock and replace with another. I constantly hear good things about Spin Master. I was thinking of selling Alterra Power corp and Brookfield Business Partners and use proceeds to buy Spin Master. Does this switch make sense? Kinder morgan (aside from protests) has had good news with government approval and potential sale of their assets. However, the stock is not moving which is surprising. Is it worth holding or replace with ENB and TRP to get some growth and dividends. Lastly, Magna and Linamar have had good gains. Time to sell or let them run? Please let me know. Thanks again

Q: I am considering buying Kinder Morgan KMI-N. Seeking Alpha has some interesting & controversial information about the Barron's article & insider buying following the publication. In doing some stock chart overlays KMI-N against WMB-N,SE-N,PAA-N,ENB-N,TRP-N,I find the yield & price discrepancy rather compelling. Your comments greatly appreciated. Ken
