WOW, your portfolio is hot! Do you have any losers?

I don’t have any real big losers but ABX has been kind of disappointing and L has just been stagnant. My portfolio has also been hit by the rising US dollar as approx. 30% of it is invested in US dollars. That being said I’m not predicting a lot of portfolio growth going forward as I feel that many of my holdings are now fully valued. However, I plan on holding everything in my portfolio indefinitely with the exception of ZED, GZ and GO.A which I would sell if they had a good run (and hope to re-buy them later).

Congrats. Are you at all worried about TD compromising more than 10% of your portfolio?

No, not really. I sleep fairly well at night holding this one. I've held it for a long time and would have a fairly large capital gain if I sold. Additionally, I am not inrolled in the DRIP so I expect that it will become a smaller % of my portfolio over time. That being said I don't have plans to add another CDN bank anytime soon.
