Q: I have been holding STN for a number of years. It underperformed WSP in last 5 years by large margin, but started catching up in last 3 years. In recent stock market correction, STN dropped much less than WSP. STN is still above 200 day average while WSP is currently below 200 day average. Year to today WSP also underperformed STN. What is your view of STN and WSP going forward from here in terms of future growth? If just to own one name between them, which one would you pick? Alternatively, should I catch this opportunity to switch to WSP?

Q: Is there a Canadian Co. that might benefit from the proposed Infrastructure spending that U.S
President Biden is planning for the U.S.? Would this Co. have to be listed on both the Canadian & U.S. Exchanges? I want a stock that qualifies for the Canadian DTC. I find BIP.UN & BIPC a bit baffling. Last March, BIPC was created & I thought it was supposed to mirror BIP.UN but as of last Friday there was a $20 difference between the price of the two stocks. When I look into BIPC which I would prefer because of the DTC, most of its holdings are in Brazil & the U.K.
Thank you: Jerry

Q: I've held Stantec for 5 years and have had satisfactory performance at best. Obviously, with the benefit of hindsight, I wish I had purchased WSP Global instead or just swapped them in the past few years (based on your recommendation of WSP Global). Given the current valuations and performances of these businesses, do you think a move out of Stantec and into WSP Global in my TFSA at this time would make sense?
