Q: Hi Peter, Ryan, and Team,

Portfolio Analytics indicates an overweight position in Utilities where the current holdings are BEP.UN, CPX, and FTS. Only CPX is showing a loss, and the other two have substantial gains. In what order would you sell part positions, in order to raise cash for Consumer Cyclical? This sectorís holdings include ATD, BYD, and CCL.B. In what order would you add to existing positions? Please suggest other Consumer Cyclical stocks to consider starting a position, if you feel it would further diversify our holdings in this sector. Thanks as always for the pertinent advice.

Q: Hi 5i
I got to the party late on CCL.B (avg. cost $65) and PBH (avg cost $120). SIS did well at first (avg cost $8). You have all 3 as B+. Over the last 5years none of the 3 has done much. Would appreciate your thoughts on why to continue to hold and any catalyst that could get them going.
Thanks, Greg
