Q: What do you think of this conglomerate ? Revenues of 302 billion. Its in iron ore which should go down next year Its in fertilizers and there seems to be a shortage coming. In metals like copper and nickel and there will be a global demand in coming years. Its got a p/e of 4.04 and a future p/e of 3.0 and yet it pays out a 20.2 % div. How long has it been paying such a div. and do you think this will continue ?

Q: 2021 has been good to me overall but as always I have my regrets. I bought 2% weighting of BHP in Sept around 61 buck, mostly because I had little exposure to the sector. Do you think its gone too far to fast on it attempt to clean up its environmental footprint? Do you think the sell off has to do with tax loss selling or company issues? Finally would your view be favorable for next year or should I cut my losses. I thank you for years of good service and giving me an excellent source for sober second thoughts.

Q: Hi Team;
My question is whether to keep on holding baba or not . It is held in a US cash account so selling would incure a 53% loss as of today. The reason I ask today is that there have been many quality names that have sold off a lot . Just wondering if a switch into a different , more convincing beat down name might be a good move at this point. Ideally I would like as much recovery upside as baba potentially would have in order to try to recover my losses. Which essentially would mean a double from here.
Any names you would endorse switching to that might potentially meet this criteria ? Or do I keep patience and hold. I am a long term investor typically (10yr timeframe or more before retirement ). Thanks

Q: Hello 5i Team,
When designing a portfolio about a year ago I made sure to have exposure in Emerging Markets as I was underweight in foreign equities. With Chinese equities under pressure does one just continue to hold these equities in order to have a diversified portfolio and ride the ups and downs if one is a long term investor? Your insight is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
