Q: Where could one look to learn about investing in critical minerals?
If you were to buy 5 companies in this area today, which would they be? Note: I prefer CDN companies, but would buy a U.S. one if it were significantly better

Q: Please, rank from most to least recommended and why? Are there any companies outside of Canada that you think might be preferable? If so, how would you rank them? If there is any other information that you believe might be useful then let me know.

Q: You answered my question about Linde and the kinds of materials you expect to be in demand in the future. Could you please match up some company names to your suggestions? As a reminder, here is part of your response:

"Materials which we think might be in great demand in the future include: lithium and cobalt (lithium-ion batteries for EV and renewable energy storage), graphene (exceptional strength and conductivity), and advanced alloys (aerospace and automotive industries)."

Q: Hi fellows,

These are big loosers in my TFSA, more than 50%. Do you see any chance of a significant upside for these stocks in a reasonable time frame or further deterioration ? I am tempted to liquidate them and recover a bit of cash for a better investment. What would you do if you were in my shoes ?

Q: Except for CTS, ATZ, SHOP and LAC all of these, once darlings, are below where they were 5 years ago and all of them are down sharply from their all-time highs. Can you provide your thoughts on which, if any, of these stocks will be able to get back to their old highs and a guess on when. Also, please identify your top picks (ones that you are sure will survive and thrive in the next 2 to 3 years) and your bottom picks (ones that are destined to struggle for years). They donít all need to go into those two groups, as the future of some of them may be fuzzy. A sentence or two on why you placed these stocks in these groups would be appreciated. Thanks

Q: I bought LAC shortly before the spin-off. It's now been a bit over a week since the spin-off and my brokerage account shows LAAC with a cost per share which is equal to my original cost of LAC. And it shows LAC of having a cost which is about 71% of the original cost. (So it shows the combined cost for both is 71% higher than the actual cost). Do you know how the cost was supposed to be applied between the two?
