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

Q: Peter et al:
I have big losses on canfor pulp and western forest products, and have included them in my tax loss selling? Should I buy them back? Interest in these stocks has completely subsided, which makes me think that in a few years when the price is up a lot, we will hear about them every day! Please advise, with a detailed explanation. Also, would you kindly render your opinions on canfor , which Jimmy Pattison wanted so badly, and now no one mentions. Also, opinions on Interfor, and WFG, which you like a lot more, but never get any questions about. A big shortage in housing, and lumber stocks in the dumpster!!!!. They will have their day in the sun. Help me to determine that time frame. Charge me accordingly. Much appreciated.

Q: I own a fully position in IWN - with what's been going on lately with sector rotation (Growth verses value) should i see half the position and buy IWO (growth) or sell the entire position in IWN and buy IWM (both growth and value) ?

Second question I own significant holdings in WEF (overweight) WFG (1/2 position) and lastly Canfor (Full Position) My question is is it time to exit hold or reduce as lumber prices cannot stay at the present level forever?? (your comment please) maybe even sell some WEF some and go with a big house builder or even Lowes (I already own Home depot ) your guidance is appreciated

Q: Hi group lumber companies took it on the chin in 2 short days WEF went down 15% in the last 2 days as an example . Is the run over /(Time to cash in profits) or is this simply some folks taking profits. I know housing starts in the us are off but is the high price on lumber not the culprit here and also looking like lumber inventories remain low which should = higher prices for lumber going fwd. - your thoughts are always appreciated

Q: Hi
I have been renovating an old cottage on the east coast, it seems that the supply chain has “broken” when trying to get lumber supplies to the extent that builders are saying forget about new builds.
Is there a buying opportunity here for lumber companies and if so what companies would you suggest.

Q: Hi Guys
Morningstar show DEC 2019 short term debt at $395 Million and cash at 60 million
Do you know what the short term debt was used for, an if Canfor has the credit facilities to handle there debt. I was thinking on taking a small position in this stock at current price levels, after all if Pattison was willing to offer $18 or so a share.
Thanks Gord
