The market for the sectors they’re in is very large, with the above companies I’ve referenced, if Earth Alive Clean can grab an increase in market share with their new products it could transformational for them , no?

Q: I'm down 60% on all three of these and finally taking the tax write off. The good news is that I can use it this year. Would you consider any worth buying back again after 30 days or not ? QST has been showing signs of life recently and perhaps CXI will recover when the world starts to travel again ? What would you do ?

Q: I own 2500 shares (~CA$136,000) of Nutrien (non-registered account) with an unrealized capital loss of approximately $19,000. To realize this loss, I am planning to sell my position in Nutrien with aim to re-buy after 30 days. In the interim, to maintain weighting in that sector, what suggestions do you have for an economically similar security (or securities)? (My holding is currently in a US$ brokerage account, so would be easiest to switch to another US$ security, although I could journal-entry my shares into the corresponding CA$ account, and sell my NTR shares in CA$, if you suggest a CA$ security[ies].)

Q: I am holding Mosaic at a loss, and it represents well less than 1% of my portfolio. That being said, the business of agriculture is here to stay, and farmers need companies like Mosaic to provide them what they need to grow food. Is this company worth hanging on to, or is it time to move on? Should I sell, my first plan to reallocate this capital would be to increase my position in VLKAY: it is a small position that I would not mind increasing, as it would help my portfolio allocation. Thanks for reading, and I look forward to your response.

Q: My question is on M-x as well as M.PR-x as I hold some of each. How do you feel about this stock going forward? What do you think of its underlying holdings in our current low energy environment? How much of their business is Alberta based? And how safe is the cash flow in terms of covering their preferred dividend? Thanks for your help.
