Q: In my non-registered account I have tried to build a diversified portfolio of "set-and-forget" dividend-paying stocks. I do not need the dividends currently, all are being DRIPped.
Recognizing that I'd be giving up some dividend return, what are your thoughts on replacing BEP in the portfolio with BAM?
I already own AQN in the renewables space, and ACO.X & FTS in the utilities space.
Thanks you for your insight.

Q: Hi Guys,

I own all of the above (Bam.a 2.55%, Bepc 1.7% , Bep.un 2.2% ), I was thinking of selling either Bepc and Bep.un and purchasing more Bam.a.

Does this make any sense inside a balance portfolio.

Q: Holding some decent gains in BAM, BIP, BEP and ONEX. Looking to consolidate BEP, BIP, BAM and ONEX in particular in registered accounts. Looking at past performance, ONEX has outperformed BAM over certain periods of time, while BAM looks to be the outperformer over the longer term. At this particular time, what is your opinion on switching from ONEX to BAM or would it be good to hold both for diversification? Which do you think will be the outperformer over the next 10-20 years? If my goal is long term capital growth and not income, would you sell BEP and BIP and just shift it into BAM? Current weightings are BAM 2.3%, ONEX 2.1%, BEP 1.1%, BIP 1.5%. Thanks!

Q: Hi 5i,
do you think AQN, BEP.UN, BEPC, BLX and NPI might experience some tax loss selling pressure for the remainder of 2021?
Can you rate them in order of purchase preference with #1 being the most favoured for an income portfolio.

Q: Hi Team,
I am currently holding PPL in a cash account for energy exposure and as one of my few dividend plays. I like the company, but I am also looking at buying either of or all 3 of MG, BAM, BEP but I would need to raise cash to do so. Over the long term (10yrs), even though PPL div is much higher, which of the names listed do you believe to have the highest potential total return? Would it be advisable to sell some PPl and diversify into one of the other names listed? If so which would you buy today, or all of them? Thanks again
