Q: What do you think of the latest quarterly earnings for Martinrea ?
I used your Interactive Chart feature to compare the % share price increase over time of Martinrea and Magna - for 10 to 20 years Magna is the clear winner , but Martinrea is far better over the last 3 years . Do you think this better performance will continue over the next 2-3 years , or is a switch to Magna appropriate ?

Q: Dear amazing 5i employee,

I trust that you are well!

An analyst at 5i noted (in answer to one of questions) that there are dozens of trading opportunities available in the market right now. Would you be able to list some of those opportunities? By trading opportunities I mean simple trades (buy low, sell high).

Yours kindly,

Q: Hello 5i Team,

I have sold MG at the top, is it a buy at this level? the stock momentum is good, car sales are on the upward momentum in the US.

You have B+ rating on MAL, do you still feel positive after the last Q?

Would you add to an existing TIXT (loss position at this point) at this level representing now only 1% of my portfolio (given your B+ rating for the company)?

Q: Hello 5i, I am thinking of buying Granite Real State Investment Trust. Before I do so I would like your opinion on the company's debt compared to other major Canadian REITs? I am somewhat concerned about the following excerpt from the company profile "Granite derives nearly all of its revenue in the form of rental income from its properties. The company's largest tenant is Magna International, an automotive parts and systems manufacturer, which accounts for the majority of Granite's lease income." This is as if most of their income depends on Magna only, is that a concern to you? Thank you

Q: If one was willing to accept the smaller cap size risk and the much lower yield, could you endorse a switch from MG to DOO to stay (technically at least) in the same sector in the hopes of realizing a higher total return in the long run (5-10 years)? When I look at the history, Magna is about where it was 7 or 8 years ago, and DOO is up about 4 fold. I realize the past doesnít predict the future, but stillÖ..

Q: Can you recommend 5 top value Canadian and 5 USA companies that have solid long-term businesses, with great management, a good P/E and have no debt or very low debt.
