Q: Hi, how safe is the dividend on a scale of 1-10 whereby 10 is very safe. Do they carry debt that could some day impact the dividend as rates rise? Has the dividend ever been cut? Any reason why the dividend has not been raised for a few years? Lastly, do you see Keyera as a takeover target in the future. Many thanks as always for the great service that you provide.

Q: As a follow up to my last question, do you think Keyera is better than Pembina in the sense that it is almost exclusively natural gas processing, storage, etc. vs Pembina that has more exposure to oil. I understand that Keyera is much smaller, but given that I also own Enbridge size is not my biggest concern as long as its big enough.

Thanks,
Jason

Q: Hello 5i,

My overall portfolio weighting in energy has grown to 20.49% and I am looking to trim and/or get out of a position in the next few weeks/months.

I currently hold SU 9.62%, TOU 4.74%, PXT 1.11%, KEY 1.07%, ENB 3.95%.

Leaning towards selling my entire position on PXT and some of SU but would appreciate your opinion. I still have a high conviction in the energy sector but I am uncomfortable with my overall weighting in it. Would greatly appreciate your thoughts and how you would rank each stock to each other.

I am also underweight in industrial/healthcare/utilities and looking to purchase a stock in those sectors with whatever i sell in energy. Would appreciate a recommendation in each of those sectors.

Please deduct credits for above as you see fit and thank you again for all that you do.

Q: Hi Peter, Ryan, and Team,

Like many members as well as 5i, I am increasingly frustrated with PKI. For example, it dropped 5.2% on January 18. :(

We hold PKI in both my wife’s and my RRIFs. Both holdings are still up, but I’m considering exiting PKI while we’ve still made some money.

I was considering equal purchases of SU, CNQ or CVE, TOU, and KEY for each RRIF (2 for each RRIF). Would you be OK with such a move? Please rank these 5 stocks for safety and upside.

Another move I was considering is to raise our US exposure by buying Vanguard’s ETF VDE. (According to Portfolio Analytics, we’re underweight in the energy sector, as well as USA). Would you endorse this purchase, which would be for our non-registered account? Am I correct in assuming that any withholding taxes shouldn’t prevent this purchase in a non-registered account?

I also manage our son’s TFSA, and unfortunately his holding in PKI is down by quite a bit. I intend to hold it, but would certainly exit it if 5i drops it from the Balance Equity Model Portfolio. Is 5i considering such a move?

Please deduct sufficient credits, and thanks as always for your insight and guidance.

Q: I was going to sell 2 energy stocks . I am underweight in industrials, materials consumer discretionary and consumer staples.
Could you recommend your top two Canadian companies in each sector for growth.
On the other hand would it be just as well or would you favour Canadian ETF for each sector and could you list your favorite for each sector?
Thanks
Jeff
