Q: I have held IVN since about $3. Closed today at $11.56. Given the size of their recently producing copper mine. Robert Friedland, Co-chair. Their rhodium, palladium. gold, platinum and nickel reserves I hope to hold this for a long time in spite of being situated in DRC. I should add I hold teck.b and Freeport as well for copper. I am happy with Ivanho as smaller copper producer. But am thinking of future for their other materials as listed.

What risks do you see in IVN?

Thank you, Mike

Q: Hello 5i
Could you please provide me with the best Palladium and Neon play out there please? Please mention why you like the choice. Would it be better to side with Neon
as its supply from Mariupol and Odessa (Ingas and Cryoin) will be affected for a long time...or 37% of Pallidium comes from Russia and that will probably never come back to markets here. Or is there another element in chip manufacturing that you are thinking of?
Thank you

Q: I'd like to invest in the materials sector (mining) ex gold and silver. Which companies would you suggest. I have addressed a few, possibly you have other recommendations. Thank you.

Q: My Materials sector needs to be increased to about 10% of portfolio - currently I have only 1.3% - all held in KL (underwater 15%).
I note you have ccl.b in the Balanced Portfolio but it does not seem to be in your recent recommendations for Materials ? ?
At the moment my shopping list looks like this:
LUN, IVN, ERO, NEO, NTR, RS, FCX, XGD ( Sell KL ??) , CCL.b ??
Would appreciate your assessment and comments and suggestions for alternatives. Dividend not necessary.
Use whatever number of question credits req'd. Thanks as always.

Q: With copper prices moving higher and a good probability that demand will continue to increase due to economic recovery and possible infrastructure spending etc, what is the best way to position for an uptrending copper price? I think it makes sense to have a position in a mid or large cap producer for exposure. However, I'm also wondering if there are any companies on your radar that have "good" projects that are uneconomical at lower copper prices but could come online if we see copper above $4-$5. My understanding is that copper reserves are dwindling and demand could outpace supply into the near future or longer. So if we see new all time highs in the copper price, what companies could see the best returns in this scenario. I realize this situation has a few 'ifs' but would appreciate your insights. Thanks very much for your service.

Q: Hi 5i Team - For a long time the benefits of copper as an anti-microbial agent have been known but perhaps not widely. That recognition has been gaining steam as both public transportation systems and hospitals are considering using it in their touch surfaces and elsewhere. Although these innovations are on a small scale at this point, they will likely gain steam as the world seeks to find ways of reducing the transmission of viruses and also bacteria – any form of microbes. Obviously this is a very worthwhile goal! From an investment standpoint could you provide the names of two or three copper producers that you feel have the fundamentals to not only continue to produce copper at current levels but also might have the ability to increase their production. Thanks.
