Q: I am looking to increase my allocation to the Materials and Real Estate sectors. My current exposure is only through various index ETFs. Can you provide 3 companies for each sector that trade on the TSX to have a balanced exposure?

Hi 5i,
I'm looking to make the material sector within my portfolio better. Can you please help me by ranking these companies for me and maybe let me know if something isn't needed or something should be added to give strength and diversification. Truly appreciate your service.

Q: Already hold TECK.B and looking to add another Cdn base metals company. Considering FM, LUN and ERO. FM seems to be trading at roughly double the multiple of earnings and EBITDA compared to LUN, ERO and TECK.B. Two questions.

(1) Why does FM trade at such a high multiple compared to the others?

(2) Please rank FM, LUN and ERO on a scale of 1-10 for a desirable add to a diversified portfolio that is a low on base metals exposure.

Q: Do you think that, while this unfortunate war carries on, industrials will continue to rise?
I read that gold, grain (wheat?), copper, paladium and nickel have reached new highs.
If so, I'd be grateful to know what stocks you would prefer to own to cover some or all of these, plus an assessment of the key metrics for your view.
Thank you for your highly appreciated viewpoints.

Q: Hi 5i team, I'm looking for suggestions on base metal miners. What are your favourite Canadian companies, particularly ones leaning towards copper. A pure copper play, maybe a small/mid-cap, suggestion would also be appreciated. Pete in Calgary.

Q: Hello Peter,
Thank you for recommending Tamarack(TVE). 10% in the last few days, I will take that.
My question is on Lundin for copper/base metals. I saw your recommended that a couple of days ago and today it had a nice pop of 10%. Is the easy money already made or it will still be your preferred choice? Or would you suggest another name? Does not necessarily have to be on tsx,

Q: I would like to get your opinion of Lundin's recent acquisition of Josemaria Resources in Argentina. The market sure doesn't like the deal, at least for today. Do you think the sell-off is a good opportunity to establish a position in Lundin given the company's strong fundamentals or would you wait awhile to let the market digest the news?

Thanks and Merry Christmas to the entire 5i office.

Q: At present my only position in materials is a 2.5 % weight in FNV, and am looking at adding one position. I am considering one of these 4. I have heard that Lun had some issues in Chile and am a bit concerned that Teck.B might have a bit of a drag from coal being out of favour with ESG considerations;. Do you think these concerns are meaningful? In any event, of the 4, which one would you want to choose, and why? Thanks for your excellent service.

Q: There is a lot of talk about copper as a fundamental commodity for electrification and cobalt being critical for batteries. These I believe are often mined together. Do you see opportunity for investment based on these theses despite of recent price appreciations and which company would you recommend giving preference to Canadian companies.
Thank you for your great service, Peter

Q: Hi 5i,
I'm trying to put together a materials allocation for my portfolio that pay a dividend. These are the companies I have come up with that pay a stable dividend and appear to not have too much related business. Is more diversification needed and can you make recommendations. Also is there any better replacements for these companies I would like to have at least a two percent dividend. Thanks!
