Investment Q&A

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

Q: Do to a few errors/mistakes in switching brokerages, I ended up removing these from an RRSP and TFSA accounts and left them in limbo in a non- reg account. I am aware of the serious overlap among the RBF266, XDV,CDZ and XIU. (They were in separate accounts at one time). If I should consolidate, what are your thoughts? What stays and what goes? If I were to begin selling and adding stocks, I was thinking BAM.A and ?Twenty year time frame. Have maxed TFSA.
Cheers and thanks,

Q: Hello. I am a new subscriber and this is my first question. I have been "practicing" self directed investing for the past year with about 20% of my registered assets. I think I have a pretty good grip on the basics and am now ready to move ahead and invest the balance of my assets into the market. I am going to use your portfolio construction recommendations as a guideline. According to the plan, I am already heavy in # of stocks and lack solid allocation and diversification. The stocks I listed are the ones that are dragging down the portfolio and for the most part do not belong in the mix. If I sell now all the losses seem to be quite significant representing approx. 3.5% of my current portfolio of stocks and about 1.3% of my total available assets. I have the option of holding on hoping for recovery and using other cash to strengthen my good positions and add to more diversified positions. Or should I simply sell and move on with a clean slate to re-build the portfolio?

Q: Hello team,

With Chinese flocking to their theaters as a sign of what is to come post Covid, do you think the pent up demand in Canada will save CGX? Or is CGX now too debt laden and too risky for investors to bother?

I don't like speculation so I guess I want to know if the worst is over and this is a real investment opportunity in a company which now has enough time to overcome its misfortunes and see better days ahead.

What is a good entry point if you want to play?

Thanks a bunch as always!

Q: Thinking about taking a position in one of the following companies, given studios can now own movie theatres after Paramount Consent Decrees of 1948 have been removed. I have a 3-5 year horizon and think people will eventually come out of hiding ; ) Also, if there is another company (entertainment) that has been recently beaten-up that you prefer, please let me know.

Q: Hi 5i team,

What’s your thoughts on Cineplex at its current price at around $8 per share after the recent price drop of 18% on Tuesday? It seems to have been hit hard due to the failed deal and bad earnings. The price drop seems to be too much with some of their theatres opening up again. Do you see this as a potential play for a strong bounce over the next 12 months?

Thanks as always,
