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

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?

Q: I have never been a fan of timing the commodity cycle. However, I am looking at taking positions in one or more of LUN, LIF and TECK.B. While TECK has been higher the other two are at new or near their all time highs. In your estimation, do these stocks (all company specific issues aside) just keep going higher while the global environment is positive? Can you please rank them on overall gains on the one hand and relative safety on the other? But do you think they will all just be pummeled (as per usual) during the next global recession and/or first signs of overcapacity? Thank-you.

Q: What is your view on commodity prices relative to the recovery from the pandemic and/or the global efforts to curb carbon omissions? Is the demand outpacing supply and if so what are the companies or ETF's to hold over the coming years? Is there any particular metals that one should focus on?

Q: I have 5.5% of my net worth invested in FNV, CNQ, and SU. Is this good enough to participate in the coming "commodity super cycle" that may, or may not, happen? Also own lots of pipelines which probably would also benefit. Thanks Ron

Q: Hi 5i Team
I'm considering inserting a materials sector in portfolio as I am suspecting they are undervalued. Looking at 5 stocks for 1.5% each. 1 each for Gold, Silver, Copper, Steel and Agriculture. Would the 5 names submitted be the best in your opinion or would you change any. Looking for reasonable safety and growth.
Thanks. Gilles

Q: Good afternoon - I took positions in the above several months ago, thanks to your suggestion, and all have fared quite well. However, both MG and LUN are at what appears to be their highest levels in several years while NTR enjoyed a higher valuation years back. All three have immodest P/E ratios at this time. Do you foresee additional loft to their prices or is it perhaps already time to do a bit of harvesting? Thank you.

Q: I have roughly equal positions in the above and am thinking of selling GSG, which is doing ok but no dividend, and increasing my positions in NTR and LUN. Your thoughts, please? Any downside to this? Is the upside of the dividend worth it? Thanks
