Q: I will have to raise cash by December 30th for a mandatory RIF withdrawal. I will sell from this group of stocks. I assume it is better to retain the stocks with the highest growth potential. So in what order would you sell?

Thanks for all you folks do. You keep me a confident DIY investor... especially during troubled times.

Q: Hi Peter,

It looks like capitulation is nearing. There isn't anywhere to hide anymore.

Would you wait for further drops in WMT, TGT, COST, L, and PBM or is it a good time to jump in on some or all of the these names?

Can you rank the stocks in order of preference for a 3-5 year or more hold in an RRSP? Would you purchase any of the stocks for a TFSA at this time?

Thank you
Debbie and Jerry

Read Answer Asked by Jerry on May 19, 2022

Q: Please recommend, especially during this uncertain economic times, two to three Consumer Staple stocks to hold, again for longer than 5 years. My aim is 5 % yield but I do understand that yields for good quality companies are usually low. I would be happy to invest in those with really strong growth down the road. This is what I have compiled with: NWC, PBH, ATD, EMP.a, L, MRU. By all means, please include ones that you feel would serve this purpose.
Thank you again for your insight. Roger
