Q: Hi, ATS Corp has launched a public offering of 6,000.000 ( 6.9 mln with overallotment option) new common shares in US and Canada. Pricing will be determined in market context, once underwriting agreements are complete with Goldman, JPM and TD.

Could you please help us understand the implications of this news /transaction as a current shareholder.

What is the % of the secondary to present o/s shares ?

In your view, could it result in a stock weakness - at least a temporary overhang and offer an opportunity to add to our position and if so, what would be the price range ?

Thank You

Q: Hi Team,
I was looking to add funds to one of the following 3 names: Bn, ATZ, or ATS. If had to choose which name would be the best buy today? My intention is to buy and hold long term.

Separately, what's your take on recent market negativity? Things seem to be escalating to the down side with Powell continuing to have his rosey goggles on continuing to raise rates as banks continue to fail, literally during his bumbling speech telling the world how solid US banks are? I know my confidence in the guy has dwindled as of late. Perhaps now is not a good time to buy and I should wait a bit with any new purchases? Opinion? Thanks

Q: Hi Team,
What’s your thoughts on Ats share price currently? Is it a buy going into earnings or a bit risky at todays valuation? Share price seemed to be consolidating lately , but recently bouncing up some again now to new highs . What do you predict with upcoming earnings for the company? Do you still feel the company is set to be performing well for the foreseeable future?

Q: I own CAT anticipating a growth in sales in 2024 due to infrastructure spending in the US. I also own TIH as my industrial exposure in Canada. Does it make sense to hold both or are they too similar? If I decide to change TaiH to another industrial holding in Canada, what would be your preferred options to consider? I already own CP and TFII for my other industrial exposures.

Q: Hi, On his BNN appearance, Feb 13, Peter was very positive on the stock " We do consider it one of the best industrial stocks right now." Peter also indicated having visited the facilities/plants and met the Management, at the time he owned a large chunk of the Co., while managing funds for a large Canadian institution. Stock has seen a phenomenal run over past 9 months (+65%) and YTD +30%. ATS also appears to have grown to a 7% weight in the 5iGrowth Portfolio.

We have taken a starter 1% position, over past 2 weeks, to complement Industrials in our portfolio.

Could you (Peter) kindly share your current view of the company, with respect to its management, valuation, debt and Growth prospects. Also, in light of such a strong run up in the share price, would you still be comfortable adding at current levels or wait for a pullback ( If it happens, at all ), for a long term investment ?

Thank You

Q: Hello 5i,
I own these four industrial stocks. Could you please rank them for growth?
Do you feel it necessary to own all of them or is it logical to consolidate.
Lastly, are there any US names you would rank higher than these?
Thanks for you insight!
