Q: Hello Peter,
When Brookfield first indicated that they were going to spin off the asset management unit, the stock popped alot, but then subsided. Now, the spinoff is more certain as opposed to just mentioning it, why is the stock not behaving as it did when the first announcement was made? Please provide your view. Given USA is still delaying its legalization of marijuana, I was deciding on Weed or Hut mining given both are volatile. What would make sense ? Thanks very much

Q: Hello 5I,
I am down 40% on multiple US Marijuana stocks. The ones that are taxable accounts I am considering selling and buying other stocks with potential to triple or more over the next 5 years plus. What would be your highest conviction picks to be able to accomplish these returns in US and Canada? Maybe 5 options for each? Thanks

Q: Hi Peter

I have question regarding the following list of “fallen angels”. These ten stocks have achieved significant drops in valuation since Dec. 31, 2020. Can you please rank these “fallen angels” in terms of the best risk-return profile over a five-to-ten-year hold? Everyone likes a bargain! Sometimes it is possible to survive a falling knife particularly if you use tungsten as a shield!

We cannot all be superman!


Thanks George

Q: Many of the Pot companies have been sliding for several months now. Do you think they are getting near a bottom for this sector? I'm looking specifically at CRON, WEED, & MSOS. What is your feeling on these stocks? Do you have a favorite in this field?

Q: Hello. I am a new subscriber and this is my first question. I have been "practicing" self directed investing for the past year with about 20% of my registered assets. I think I have a pretty good grip on the basics and am now ready to move ahead and invest the balance of my assets into the market. I am going to use your portfolio construction recommendations as a guideline. According to the plan, I am already heavy in # of stocks and lack solid allocation and diversification. The stocks I listed are the ones that are dragging down the portfolio and for the most part do not belong in the mix. If I sell now all the losses seem to be quite significant representing approx. 3.5% of my current portfolio of stocks and about 1.3% of my total available assets. I have the option of holding on hoping for recovery and using other cash to strengthen my good positions and add to more diversified positions. Or should I simply sell and move on with a clean slate to re-build the portfolio?

Q: Good day folks.
Reviewing the three portfolios, I see no representation from the "Pot" sector. Are you making a conscious decision to steer clear?
If you were to participate, which Companies would you be interested in, CAD and US? Is there an ETF that you would point me to to take out Company related risk?

Thanks for your help.

Q: Thanks to Moez for a nice article/stock screener today. I was surprised to see so many companies from the Metals sector.

IF he were to apply one more criterion to the 22 companies that made the list, i.e. debt load, which companies would come up on the top?
( the companies with the least debt load to the most)

Q: I came across PUMP, World Class Extractions, on Jan 26 had an update on Pineapple Express Delivery, they have controlling interest. They deliver Cannabis B-B, and B-C, and also Liquor in some jurisdictions. They deliver Medical Cannabis for Shoppers Drug mart , as well as for Spectrum, medical division of Canopy Growth. Now they’re applying for license from Canadian Gov for “Sale for Medical Purposes “ for its facility in GTA. They seem relatively undiscovered, but getting attention lately. Do you think they could be a good Aquisition target by Shoppers or Canopy Growth, or any other bigger player for that matter.
Plus in their own business in the CBD products and devices could also be attractive part to the package

Q: Hi. Can I have your views on the following scenario: Currently Canopy Growth is sitting at a market cap of 21B. Aphria + Tilray at about 13B. If I am not mistaken, Aphria + Tilray beats Canopy in all the important financial metrics. Does Canopy have a better future growth profile then Aphria + Tilray, or is there a market mismatch here? (APHA up 13.5% today...)
