Q: Good Day My question is about the earnings of SmartCentres Real Estate Investment Trust. They seem to have their core as retail but are branching off into residential, storage, and senior complexes. I have always liked this management team and they have done us good over the years. Can you comment on their earnings and your thoughts on the direction of other real estate assets?

Trying to reduce REIT holdings and would appreciate your advice: I don't mind keeping both but if one was sold and all the proceeds used to buy the other, then which one would you prefer to keep adding to? Both classified as "retail" . Which one has more potential to keep growing?

Many thanks!

Q: I had bought BPY for a number of reasons including the eventual return of mall traffic, the fact that it had room to run to get near to its pre-covid price, the dividend and then of course, having Brookfield management behind it. The closest replications I can find are Simon Property Group and SRU in the U.S. and Canada respectively. Can you speak about their payout ratio and management quality, and especially their main risks in the medium term. Thank-you.

Q: Doing a year end review of all of my holdings. I would like to reduce my position in several stocks (or eliminate entirely in the case of HR.UN and CPH) in order to raise some cash for increasing my position in several other holdings. Fairly large question, so I will divide it into 2, this for the potential reductions and a further question about the potential adds. Would you please rank these stocks in the order you would reduce or eliminate to raise some cash, starting with the one you would be most inclined to reduce/eliminate. Sector, or large cap/small cap not a concern, as I have a broadly diversified portfolio with a lot (too many, really) of names. Thank you for this, and also for the very good service. My 1st year as a client, and I will certainly be renewing. I have recommended the site to a few friends who also do investing.
