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

Q: Please rank the following companies for long term holds in a TFSA, with a management rating for each. (10 being the best)

Also, I currently hold SHOP and CSU.. Do you feel LSPD and TOI overlap these larger companies too much to consider a position ?

Please suggest any other Canadian companies not listed for long term holds.

Thanks for everything! Cheers

Q: Hi 5i,
I would like an update on which horse you might bet on between these three.
Please rank #1 as the horse that is likely to be the marathon race winner. Can you please also give a higher preference to the horse that has the best balance sheet and stability in this challenging economic environment. High level reasons would also be greatly appreciated so I can understand your thought process. thanks

Q: Good Morning Peter & team,

This name has experienced a significant drop since it's high on Dec 31 after experiencing a 700% ROR since May 2015. I know you can't predict a bottom and we are not to profess to be market timers. And we definitely don't like the idea of "catching a falling knife" but... FSV is starting to look more and more attractive the lower it gets. How do you think it will act with addition rate increases in the forecast and would you buy now or look for a bit of a bowl before moving in? Or would you council us to stay away and if so what would be the reasons?

Thanks for all you do

Q: Comprised of the above Canadian companies, our TFSA represents a small portion of our overall portfolio and is its most growth oriented component. All investments are made with the intent to be long-term holds (10+ years).

Two of the holdings, AT and LSPD are down over 50%, while FSV, GSY, NVEI and WELL are all down by about a third. We intend to do some rebalancing. How would you rate (1-10) these 6 for additional money today? Please include a brief explanation for the ratings.

Finally, if you could add one more Canadian company to the mix, what would it be?

Q: Hi, should have some exposure to R.E. Could you please pick two of these R.E companies you would prefer, with dividend , growth, and management considerations. This is for a unregistered acct. for long term. Or would you stay clear of this sector for now because of higher interest rates that are likely to come?
also if you have a better suggestion please include it .

Q: Thanks for the recent report on FSV. I am attracted to this name, but could never persuade myself to buy because of valuation. I am hopeful that one day I'll pull the trigger.

However, two risks that you mention - somewhat slim margins and low barriers to entry - make me hesitate a bit. In a prolonged bear-market / struggling economy, how would you see FSV perform compared to the competition? Would margins compress even more in that situation, and maybe risk losing major contracts? Or are their competitors weaker in that environment, and perhaps this would provide FSV with an advantage ? Any thoughts on this ?
