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!

Q: Looking to add a position to my materials sector. Currently own NTR, MX, LIF. This would be held in my dividend focused non-registered portfolio and would be a long term investment. looking for a company with good dividend and financial strength to withstand volatility in the sector. A company with base metals exposure would compliment my existing holdings.
Although Lundin has had some problems I am wondering if the recent price declines presents a good long term buying opportunity. Other recommendations welcome.

Q: Good Morning,
Can I please get a handful of your favourite copper stocks right now?
Read Answer Asked by Chris on September 29, 2021
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?
