Investment Q&A

Not investment advice or solicitation to buy/sell securities. Do your own due diligence and/or consult an advisor.

Q: Like a previous subscriber wrote, we also appreciate your most recent report: specifically, the numeric historical context of this current correction, the sectors affected and those most likely to benefit.
We are invested in each of the three of the 5i portfolios and over the next 1-2 months plan to make staggered and targeted contributions.
Could you suggest 3 or 4 companies from each portfolio where the winds of sentiment are excessively negative and would be attractive to purchase with this approach?
This is for a 5+ years hold.
Thank you

Q: I am a retired investor and rely upon the dividends in my RRIF for income. I have owned FSZ for many years and while it pays a nice dividend (8%) it has not grown, in fact its down since I purchased it. I want to replace it.

The listed stocks pay dividends ranging from 3.9% to 5.1%. My question is which of the stocks would make a good replacement with the dividend and growth profile that will exceed the dividend of FSZ. Please list with the best first and also indicate if the risk is higher or lower than FSZ.

I have been a member for a few years now and would like to congratulate you on your service and unbiased answers. It definitely has been financially rewarding for me.

Q: Hello Peter and team,
I was expecting with higher rates that insurance and banks will do well. Trisura is behaving like a tech stock and the banks and insurance are not doing well despite good numbers. Is this due to uncertainty geo-politically? Thanks very much.

Q: Hi 5i team. Love what you guys offer here as I am a recent trial member who pulled the trigger and signed up. I currently hold ATZ, BAM.A FLOW GSY PRN SLF TOI VFV and WSP in a TFSA. I am looking at rounding out my portfolio to include one of: IIP.un, DIR.un, CAR.un for long term hold with focus on growth and ok with some volatility. So out of those 3 what would you suggest is the best one to choose? Also, any other suggestions you would consider adding to my portfolio for increased diversification based on my overall strategy?

Q: Hi team

slf has reported decent earnings, but like other insurance co, has pulled back in price
recently, despite impending interest rates increase which will favor both banks and insurance companies , is there any fundamental reasons for the pull back in price?
is it a good chance to add on to the holdings with the aim of some income and slow appreciation of capital (medium to low risks)

Q: Good Morning
We have a approximately 10k that we would like to contribute to our Grand daughters RESP. We would like to do so with stocks and have about a 10 year window before the funds would be needed. Could you suggest 3 conservative stocks that would be appropriate for this type of account with one additional stock having a more aggressive approach?
