Q: Telecomm seems to be performing well, relatively speaking. How would you rank these telecoms for growth, dividend safety and inflation-resistance, in general? Are there other telecoms you prefer? THANKS!

Q: I would like to increase my holdings in telecom stocks. I currently have BCE and would like to know if you would recommend buying more BCE. Or buy one or two other telecom stocks, such as T, RCI.a, QBR.b, or etc? Again, primary aim is income and secondary is balance equity. I plan hold them for more than 5 years. Thanks, Roger

Q: Hello Peter and team,
Do you see BCE and Telus as over value territory as it seems investors are moving to safety driving up share prices.. I was thinking of selling some and buy back later time (i know it may seem market timing, but they have run up alot). If I did sell, what are the alternatives? Thanks for the explanation on BAM; the market call commentary was harsh. Lastly, would you consider Enerplus a good buy and is PE a good way to look at oil companies or is it mostly on cash flow? Thanks very much

Q: The phrase ďDonít trust anyone over 30Ē was coined in the 60ís, but as I head into CPP eligibility age Iím kind of leaning the other way, and so hope Peter can answer this one.

I remember the energy crisis of the 70ís, stagflation, price and wage controls and bought a home after the housing bubble burst in the 80ís and watched many of my new neighbours wait 10 years or more to get back to what they had paid. I loved rolling over 90 day GICís (remember Trust Companies?) at double digit interest rates but wasnít invested in equities.

Specifically on the question of stagflation, if we end up in that horrible scenario again is there such thing as a good stock to hold? If so, can you provide 5 to 10 that you would want in your portfolio?

Thanks again for your steady hand on the wheel lately.

Q: 8:57 AM 3/21/2022
Hello Peter:
We have to choose to add to two among these higher dividend stocks in my Cash account. These will be held for the next 20 years and want the best "sleep-at-Night" investments that hopefully never need to be sold.
I am looking for strong growing dividends plus decent compound 10 year share price growth of at least 6%.
BNS, RY, BCE, T, FTS, PPL, SLF, CNR.
I know CNR dividend is only 1.8% but it may be outweighed by growth?
Any other suggestions are welcome.
Could you please arrange them best first for safety and dividend growth
Thank you............. Paul W. K.

Q: Hello Peter and staff,
What are the PE ratios for all four companies? Would you consider PE for BCE and Telus to be on the high side? Also, any idea why ATA is not participating in the rally given good numbers, and do you think investors are waiting for next earnings from Nuvei as the stock is stuck where the short sellers pushed it to.. Thanks very much.
