Q: Hi, for my TFSA I primarily hold small dividend with steady growth companies, to keep things somewhat stable. STC is the exception. I have room for one more company.
With that in mind could you suggest 3 stocks that may fit in with what i already have, keeping sector diversity in mind. ( I also have ATD.B in another account)
Thanks, really enjoy your platform and service to the small investors.

Q: Hi Peter, Ryan, and Team,

Portfolio Analytics indicates that we're overexposed to the Consumer Cyclical Sector. Please rank the above three stocks from "sell some shares first" to "sell some shares last" so that we can free up some cash to put in the Materials sector, which is presently underrepresented. What are your favourites in the Materials sector? (Either stocks or ETFs in Canada or the US.) Thanks as always.

Q: This is my margin portfolio, all position weightings are between 3%-5%.

The projected yield is 3.31% with a 3-5 year hold.

I realize 24 positions is a bit overkill but I can't seem to choose which to remove, which would you recommend?

What positions would you add to the portfolio?

Take as many credits as needed.

Thanks for the great service

Q: Apples vs oranges vs olives question....
I still hold SJ and just noticed internalized that it has been dropped from the portfolios. Only a half position and I have some cash to invest so looking to maybe sell it and buy a new full position. My portfolio is well balanced although selling SJ will make me a bit light in materials so might prioritize a materials stock like CCL or AEM. Problem is I dont like non voting shares and I historically have timed all my mining purchases poorly....seem to buy on the highs in that sector...In general I am a balanced portfolio follower with tendencies to start buying more from the income portfolio. So looking at stocks in the portfilio I might look at adding a full postion can you rank best buys right now with +5 year hold. SJ ( hold and add to it), TFII, CCL, AEM, BCE, other non financial/ non industrial from the balance/income portfolio high on your list buy list right now.
