Q: Your thoughts on continuing to hold LUN with the CEO leaving at year end (although supposedly continuing in an advisory capacity for a further year) and replacement being someone without operational experience in the mining industry, which seems to be an issue for Lundin these days. It also appears few Board members have operational experience according to recent Globe article.

Q: I have a number of laggards in my portfolio that have been dramatically outperformed by peers during this year's rally, many of which I already own. I realize that you have generally rated these as 'hold' when asked in the past-yet I'm seeing a substantial opportunity cost to holding while others hold momentum during these hot markets for tech, industrial and commodities.
Any thoughts on whether it is worth continuing to hold and would you advise replacing at this time. ie on the balance of possible outcomes, would I be better off to stand pat or shift over to comparables within the sectors?
Thanks,
Peter

Q: Precious metals having a good day today, assuming its mainly because of the hot inflation numbers coming out. Do you see these stocks having more room to run? I own the above. Can you rank the above stocks in terms of the inflationary environment and which have the best growth and potential. Which sectors would do the best? Also I'm low in energy, would that sector do well if inflation persists or is it mainly driven by energy prices? Do you still see inflation as transitory or more persistent? Thanks!

Q: I am rebalancing and need to add Material equities to my portfolio. Currently my only holding in that sector is MX:CA. Materials will represent 13% of the portfolio equal to my energy allotment. Generally speaking should I dispose of MX (because it is more or less energy focused)and start from scratch for sector investment? Can you provide some guidance on companies to check out? I have a 3-5 year horizon and like dividends.

Q: Hello to all

As I read the Q&A this morning and learned about the problems in Chile, I understood why Lundin was down yesterday and was so out of line with its sector. I just opened a position, bad timing. What is its weight in Chile exactly and do you still trust this company for the short, medium or long term (with its current valuation). Maybe it would be better to liquidate the position. What do you think about it?

Thank you very much.

Q: Hello Peter and Team
Is it still time to invest in basic material.
I would like to increase my exposure to a reasonable level.
Between CMMC, HBM, LUN or Teck.B what will be your choice, could you rank them for a year exposure.
Thank You
Raouf

Q: Hi! I own TECK.B and KL as part of my materials exposure. Small positions about 3% total of my portfolio. Looking to increase to about 10% of my portfolio. Given what I currently own, I am thinking of adding Nutrien for some ag exposure and then one of LUN, FM or HBM. Do you agree with this approach? Do you think 10% materials exposure is too high or too low given current economic expansion and inflation environments?

Thanks,
Jason
