Q: Hello again and thanks for your insights on AGNC, I think I will set that one aside for now. Searching the Q&A I have assembled this list of 4 companies for diversified exposure to residential and industrial real estate in Canada and the US (a bit of global with Prologis is appealing). In your opinion does this group provide complementary exposure? Can you suggest an addition to this list or is there one that you would remove?

Q: Hello Peter,
If you wanted to beef up the income portion of your portfolio and liked the idea of a couple of industrial REITs, in each of the US and Canada, (partly on the assumption of 'fulfillment' in this new world of online ordering), which four would top your list - assuming you're hoping for good and/or growing yields. Thank you!

Q: In addition to my growth stocks (40% of my CDN portfolio), I have 'safe stocks' RY, T, ACQ, BIP.un in Canada and in US, I have AQN, AEP, NEE. (about 20% in US portfolio, so far). I notice that in the last year, these lo beta, safe stocks have been performing as well as growth stocks. Because I think were in for more volatility, Im interested in buying more lo-beta-with-some-growth stocks for the next few years. What do you think of these options complementing what I have? Can you pick two?
