Q: Suggestions on how to invest to benefit from Biden’s proposed increased EV incentives to buy US manufactured electric vehicles? This potentially could speed up the transition (once the chip shortage is rectified).

Any chance you’ll be adding US companies to the Reports one day?

Q: I own these companies, some are doing great, and some I'm waiting to get my money back. I just sold TC energy, not really liking the direction it was heading and was thinking of buying enbridge. Did I do a mistake? Should I rebuy it? I'm looking for a 1 year hold. Or should I buy something different? In that case what do you recommend?

Q: After reviewing your response to my question on Porsche, I also looked up VW. I understand VW is expected soon to become the world’s largest maker of EVs. I then stumbled into the ETF "CARZ First Trust NASDAQ Global Auto Index Fund" (not in your data base). CARZ includes Japanese, German, and American automakers ( unfortunately not not parts and other suppliers).

I am light on industrials. Would CARZ be an attractive addition? If capital would be better used elsewhere, I would appreciate your alternate suggestions very much.

Q: Hi,
I have no exposure to electric vehicles (EV’s) within my portfolio.

As I not interested in investing in any Chinese EV stocks I am quite limited to Tesla.

However, I am not very comfortable with the cult like following of Tesla.
Is there anyway I could get some exposure to this disruptive industry , directly or indirectly and would you be able to recommend a few stocks ?

Q: Recently PZD - the Invesco Cleantech ETF was changed to ERTH - the Invesco MSCI Sustainable Future ETF. PZD almost all Tech and Industrials whereas ERTH has a similar weighting in Industrials but only 13% tech and a big chunk in real estate. I bought PZD years as more of a growth ETF and it doesn't seem like ERTH can really fill it's shoes. Can you recommend another ETF similar to PZD? This would be a 6% weighting in my portfolio.

Q: In general, I've heard repeatedly that stocks like certainty - whether this is on interest rates, consistency of earnings, etc.
I just saw the headline this morning that Palantir is accepting bitcoin as payment. I think we all agree that bitcoin (and all crypto currencies) are quite speculative in nature. Isn't this bad news for true "investors" knowing that their revenue could go to $0? Shouldn't this mean true investors want out and speculators may want in? It seems completely counterintuitive to me for companies like PLTR and TSLA to do this. Comments?

Q: Greetings 5i,

Tesla just reported Q1. Trading down even though it looks like Elon beat expectations. Some controversy on Seeking Alpha regarding what alalysts were expecting vs realistic expectations. So lots of varied opinions and Tesla is down about 9 or 10%. Im still up about 15% as Im recently in, but I dont hold alot of conviction in this name vs something with more of a realistic valuation such as Berkshire or Sunlife/Manulife or maybe even one of the Brookfield subs. So a 2 part question. What does 5i think of this quarter and Tesla overall. Would you switch to one of the above mentioned names or hold for another quarter and re-evaluate?

As always take as many credits as required.

Q: I currently have a 4% (total portfolio) position in ARKK in my TFSA. Down some 4.5%. Considering replacing it with equal positions in two other US techs, possibly PINS and NVDA. I already hold GOOG, CROWD, ADOBE, MSFT and AMZN.
1) Would you hold the course with ARKK?
2) If not, which two US techs would you replace it with today?

And on an unrelated topic, I own (and am exceedingly happy with) EGLX. Like GOOG, it is considered to be in the Communications sector. For my portfolio purposes, I would like to assign all or part of EGLX to consumer cyclical. Does this make sense?
