Q: Hi Everyone at 5i! What are thoughts about Air Canada as a long term hold. I bought it during the pandemic in hopes that there would be a good surge in growth when things reopened . I recently read an article that the business travel end of the airline industry may not be so rosy because a lot of companies are going the more cost efficient Zoom route. With inflation and the cost of gas making travel more expensive recreationally, there may not be that quick come back. Your thoughts? Cheers, Tamara

Q: Hi there, I am a big fan of your Balanced Equity Portfolio. I like the more growth oriented names in it and was wondering if you were to swap out the less growth names for names that have a little more risk but for higher return, which would you swap and for what names? Thanks!

Q: hello 5i:
We're looking for a decent income stock and are considering EIF. We already own about a 1.5% position in AC. Are the companies businesses too similar in that they are both tied to the airline business or is there sufficient difference to own both? And what are your thoughts on the present valuation of EIF?

Q: I've been waiting to initiate a position in either AC or CAE for a minimum two year hold but I can't decide on which one. My brain tells me this is a good time to enter either or both, but I am concerned about the sector in general.

Can you give me some reasons for both companies why one should buy today and some reasons that gives one pause on the names?

Of the two, does 5i have a preference and would you start a position today in either name?

Thank you.

Q: These three stocks along with cash , are equally held and is my entire TFSA. This represents only 2.5 % of my combined non registered account and RRSP ( RIF next year).
My feeling ( and performance )on the stocks are :

AC: ( Even )Covid rebound extent still in question, high oil prices a drag
EIF: ( Up ) solid dividend, owned long time with good results
EGLX: ( Up ) , most volatile, doing the right things in a growing sector

Am willing to take a fair degree of risk. Your opinion on the portfolio is appreciated. How would you adjust and what are some of your recommended stocks ? Thanks. Derek
