Q: Hi, Over past 2 weeks markets have seen a rotation from Technology sector and the Stay Home stocks ( like Netflix, Shopify, Alphabet and others) into Cyclical sectors (Banks and Industrials). Airlines, Cruiselines and Gaming/Entertainment ( like WYN etc ) stocks have also shot up recently. This sector rotation seems to be based on belief that with economy reopening ( and Federal Reserve with an endless supply of money/support), recovery may be much faster and stronger.

With this noticeable shift in market positioning, we would like to participate and hope to benefit in near as well long term. We have 15% weight in Canadian Banks. But among Industrials, only companies owned by us are CNR, RPI.un and BYD. We also started a small position in AC and Boeing, on Friday, with intentions to build over time.
We are looking for companies in this sector with strong fundamentals which are trading at a discount to their historical levels, for COVID related factors and depressed market sentiment. Could you please recommend a few names in Canada and US. Thank You

Q: Hello,

My partner and I heard about 5i from a friend whose been using you for many years. You came with the highest recommendation.

I feel like I should be copying one of your portfolios, especially due to my lack of knowledge, but it is very important for me that my investments to follow my ethics.

I would like to know which companies on your balanced and growth portfolios would be highest on positive environmental, social and corporate governance, which are low and should be switched and for which companies. I'm happy to do research, but I'm struggling to navigate the important statistics and feeling incompetent in finding good resources. I have seen your ESG scores ( and would be keen to know where to find information on how they are created. I would also appreciate other resources that you think would assist in building a portfolio, or simply which companies you would put on it.
