Q: Hello 5i Team

Could you please review the three listed US Oil & Gas midstream companies which are not MLPs?

Please rank in order which would be the best company(s) for allocation of capital.

Are there any other US C-Corporation midstream companies which I should be reviewing?

These would be held in a US dollar denominated RRSP account for long term growth and income.

Thank you

Q: Hi, Iím curious and very intrigued as to how an AQN takeover might happen. Could it be bought whole and if so who has the resources to pull this off? Iím thinking Brookfield/ BEPC or perhaps another Private Equity company like KKR? Or could it be sold off in parts perhaps renewables to a NPI or Brookfield and the Power Gen/Transmission/Water to a Fortis? Thanks in advance.

Q: Good Morning, I purchased 2 stocks for their dividend income, and to hold for at least 5-10 years. OKE is about 3.7% of my US portfolio and KEY at 2.9% of my Canadian portfolio. Am thinking of selling and taking advantage of the tax loss since they are underperforming. Would this be a wise move or should I stay the course and keep them. If I do sell I was thinking of adding X and Well along with DUK and GILD...thoughts or suggestions?

Q: Shortly after the COVID crash, I ran a screener for companies that were down 50% or more over 1, 3, and 5 year timeframes, to capture stocks that were well below their their normal longer term levels. I note that had I blindly bought the top 10 or 20 names, I'd have done pretty well (although I pretty well picking from 5i stocks anyway). These 5 are now at the top of that list. Do you see any opportunity or red flags in any of these?
