Q: Hi,

I would like to purchase a large, dividend paying US stock that has some potential for future growth (or is currently undervalued) in my RRSP. Could you provide some suggestions?

Thank you,

Q: Good morning 5i team. I am interested in your opinion of KRP being held in a US rrsp. In reading your last response the withholding tax seemed to override your recommendation. Second question is under the present market conditions with 1 year to a lif conversion I have been bolstering interest yielding investment with a potential for capital gain. Could you recommend 3 Cdn and 3 US stocks or etf's with high dividends that have good earnings outlooks, valuation and perhaps some growth.

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: Hello 5i Team,
I am looking at adding another dividend name to my RRSP portfolio. I already own ENB, TRP, and PPL in the energy infrastructure space, and am thinking of starting a position in Williams Companies. It has a lower yield than the other three at present, but how does it compare in terms of valuation (P/E, debt ratios, etc.) Is it a "safer" investment than the other three? Given that it's nearly impossible to build a new pipeline in Canada anymore, does it have a better future?
Much appreciated,

Q: Hello 5i Team

I currently hold in my US$ denominated RRSP Brookfield Renewable Partners L.P. (BEP) to avoid complications with taxation of BEP.UN in a taxable account.

I want to proceed with buying Brookfield Renewable Corporation (BEPC) in my taxable account to receive Canadian Eligible Dividends. I would then sell my BEP holdings in the RRSP.

Could you please provide your top 5 ideas in the US market (i.e. NYSE or NASDAQ listed) for electrical utility and or renewable electrical generation to replace the BEP units in my RRSP.

Thank you

Q: By the end of this year, I will set up a RRIF. I would very much like to have dividends fund the expected withdrawal of 5 to 6%. There are many TSX stocks which will help achieve this goal. For example, ENB, BCE, BNS, CM, PPL, MFC, SLF etc. Currently, my RRSP is 67% CDN$ and 33% US$. I am having great difficulty finding anything in US$ that comes close to the dividend yield offered by the CDB$ stocks that have listed. BTW, my CDN$ would have about 15 positions. Big Question: How to achieve my goal with the US$ component of my RRIF? One obvious option is to move to funds CDN$, but that goes against country diversification which you often note. I am not very keen on US stocks or ETFs that pay a 2.5% dividend. Your thoughts and recommendation would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Dan.

Q: Hi team,

I recently trimmed my position in NVDA and I would like to add the proceeds to my dividend income.

I currently owe BAC, BX, DFS, DUK, HAS, GLW, KMI, NVT, PAC, SWKS, VZ, WMB AND ABBV for dividend and some growth. I would like to add one or more US company to this list.

Any suggestions to add to this list? And, what company would you replace in this list if you have any concerns?

Oh, I'm not a big fan of tobacco companies.

Thank you for the great service and I really appreciate your insights.
