Investment Q&A

Not investment advice or solicitation to buy/sell securities. Do your own due diligence and/or consult an advisor.

Q: The Federal, Ontario and Quebec governments have all announced significant infrastructure spending in their budgets. This should be good for infrastructure companies. Which stock do you think is most promising for a new position? I have held WSP in the past and was surprised to see it down 1% today despite the positive news. At a PE of 47.6X is does not look cheap.

Q: These stocks have been identified as the top 10 undervalued mid cap stocks. Would you consider any of these be buys and if so, (given no consideration for sector) can you list in terms of most favorable first. Also, which do you think will "hold on" best given the economic uncertainty and likelihood of recession.

Q: 1. Can you please provide your analysis of these 2 companies.

2 I presently have a 2% position in ATA, and am considering adding. It has dropped from its high of $50+ to the mid $30s. What are the chances for a good bounce back?

3. in an answer last year, it seemed you were quite lukewarm about SNC. It seems to have held up better in the current down draft. What are its current prospects and do you see it more favourably in its current circumstances?

4. I also have a near 3.5% position in WSP. If it were you, would you add to ATA or WSP, or initiate a position in SNC?

Thank you for your excellent service.

Q: I plan to sell (dump) SNC and replace it with EIF in the Industrials sector, STN is a long term hold that I intend to keep, RRSP portfolio so safety and long term growth are key, dividend is nice. In terms of timing, would you hold off for now due to near term positive prospects for SNC or just proceed? Also, do you have a better suggestion than EIF that would be complementary to STN? Thank you.

Q: Can you please give me your opinion on how you would rank these companies and your outlook going forward? I'm most interested in ARE and NOA but the others are in the same area. Thanks!

Q: I am looking for an etf or stock that might run with Bidenís infrastructure deal. I found PAVE but it seems to have already run up a lot. Do you think it has more room to run? Any other suggestions for ETFs or stocks - maybe BIP.un?
Thanks for your great service

Q: I have decided to sell most of my SNC shares, which is a large holding in my portfolio.† The stock is in a strong uptrend with 9 bullish and 1 bearish technical†'events' in just the past 6 weeks.††Are there any other catalysts on the horizon that will influence the stock?† What would be your advice re divesting this particular stock?† I can see 3 options - sell in one shot and move on, put in a trailing†stop limit order at say 10% below the current price to try and ride it higher, or stagger the sales over a 2-3 month period?† Or is there another approach that you would recommend? I appreciate your guidance.† Thank you.

Q: I am intending to sell SNC to crystallize a tax loss (early I know) but want to stay in the sector should the Feds suddenly decide to throw $$ at infrastructure. What do you suggest buying as a proxy in the meantime with the thought of buying back SNC after 30 days? I have WSP and a little ARE now and could possibly add to one or both. Not re-puchasing SNC is another option. Thanks you in anticipation.

Q: Hi Guys, the fixed income part of my portfolio needs a few additions, the returns on GIC's are very low, would be happy with PSA but apparently not available through my broker TD Waterhouse so my question is how would you rate the above 4 bonds, maturity date is no more than 3 years out.
Thanks Anthony
