Q: This is my margin portfolio, all position weightings are between 3%-5%.

The projected yield is 3.31% with a 3-5 year hold.

I realize 24 positions is a bit overkill but I can't seem to choose which to remove, which would you recommend?

What positions would you add to the portfolio?

Take as many credits as needed.

Thanks for the great service

Q: My question is regarding value metrics for CPX. I compared EV/Revenue for the above utilities and CPX is lowest at 4.66, followed by FTS at 5.96. FTS has the lowest P/B at 1.49; CPX is the next best at 2.00. As an income/value investor, is CPX a value diamond in the rough? I know it keeps missing estimates, but I would get a yield of about 5.5% while waiting for financial results to improve. Your comments very much appreciated.

Q: Peter; It seems to me that there is a general selling of the renewable area, AQN,CPX,BLX etc, . Just profit taking after the huge run up or a back to the past oil switch to the energy sector? Thanks,

Q: Dear 5i team,
Iíve read all (I think) replies to questions referencing these companies, in the last year or so.
Iíve read views that seem so different to what my brokerage says (TD). For example, member Helen noted she was done with SU. I was happy to see you still think itís best for its sector- TD lists a bunch of analysts who collectively think its a strong buy, as does a couple of reports they include in their screens.

Why are some stocks being rated strong buy but some folks want to sell them for tax losses, or wonít buy them at all?

I canít see energy (and businesses that serve energy) not getting back on track mid term. Do you agree? Mid term in my mind is 3-5 years. I was thinking that if an investor bought say SU at $18, it moved to $36 in 3-5 years, that is doubling oneís investment. Is that not good enough, or is the underlying issue not doubling oneís money but that itís high risk of big loss instead?
While Iím using SU as example, I thought these questions were relevant to all these coís.

Would you think an investor was silly to buy some of all these today?
Please provide the Ďwhyí for your opinion, thanks so much.

Please use credits as needed. Thank you ! :)

Q: Hi, I believe you favour BEP and AQN in the renewable space but how would you rank NPI, INE, and CPX in terms of size, safety and growth and also relative safety of the dividend? Thanks.
