Q: For Telus International, why would current shareholders sell their 12M shares (in this case decent percentage of outstanding) and could this imply to the market lack of confidence? Also, in this instances, what price would they be sold at? Do you still see ATS Automation as a buy and why is Nuvei taking small hits everyday? Could this be that it went up quite fast after their earnings.. Thanks very much.

Q: Hi what are the chances that any of these names will be going to the capital markets and issue more stock?
They are all doing very well,so they might be tempting to issue more stocks.
How would you rate those for stock as a buy right now?

Q: Have some cash to purchase one or two companies in my TFSA. Am wondering about CTS or PKK. What is your opinion of these 2, which would you prefer and why?

An alternative would be to add to a couple recent purchases that I have I/2 positions in. These are ATZ, TIXT, NEO.

I await your guidance and please take the appropriate # of credits, I know this is more than one credit.
Again many thanks for your guidance.

Q: The landscape of tech stocks in Canada seems to be rapidly evolving, with several impressive IPO's of late, and some very strong growth stories emerging. In a well diversified portfolio, how would you rate the desirability of holding each of the following tech stocks on a scale of one to ten, with 10 being a must own, 1 being a definite "no", and 5 being something OK, but nothing special. 5+ year holding period.

Q: Would like to create a 10-15 stock portfolio out the securities listed above, to meet my retirement income and growth needs, for a long term hold.
CPD is my current, imperfect proxy for the fixed income portion of my portfolio.
CVE, CNQ, SU would be the only opportunistic (and highly correlated) purchases, to take advantage of the current low valuations for the petroleum industry. These would be sold if the oil & gas market's prospects change.
Please rank all the securities on the basis of return potential over 2-3 years as the primary criteria,
Please eliminate any stock which does not have adequate balance sheet strength, from the lineup.
Please add to the lineup all securites that would facilitate the creation of a defensible, well-diversified, long term portfolio - especially if it is in a sector that I have overlooked.

Thank you for your expertise, and willingness to help me sleep a bit more soundly.

Q: I have owned ENGH for several years in a non-registered account. Sitting on significant capital gains. Would you endorse a portfolio change to sell ENGH in order to buy TIXT for a long-term hold. In other words, do you like TIXT enough to take a capital gains hit in order to buy it? The TIXT conference call was impressive.

Q: I have held BCE for a while now, and have always enjoyed the dividend yield it provides. TIXT seems to be poised for greater growth, but BCE is a steady provider of dividend yield with modest price appreciation. I have been looking at TIXT, and I am wondering if I should make a switch, or stick with BCE. I donít think I would want to make a larger commitment to telcos, as I would rather keep my capital free for investment in other sectors, so I would feel comfortable with an either/or situation, rather than equal amounts of both. I will appreciate any insight you have to offer. Thanks so much, and I look forward to your response.
