Q: Are there any small cap names on your radar that have been growing their top line and profits every year that appear to have a long runway of growth ahead of them -or any that you're excited about?
Along with that are there any that stand out to you that would begin to garner attention from bigger players in the coming years if they continue to grow stay on track? I Would like to a few ideas for a long term hold if the companies can continue to execute.

Thanks very much

Q: Not a question, but a comment. And not sure if it’s relevant or not.

I’ve been involved in the electrical industry for 35+ years and have been aware of Hammond from a users perspective for much of that time. They’re noted for having good equipment, debatably the Honda or Toyota of relatively small dry type electromagnetic gizmos. Not the least expensive, but good value. It’s reliable, available, and therefore rather ubiquitous in industrial electrical rooms. I own the company not only because of your endorsement but because I like their products.

Similar comment with Powell. Pretty good equipment from a technical perspective and reasonably priced. Good innovators and flexible offerings. They seem to be winning lots of fully evaluated tenders.

One last comment. If privately-owned Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories Inc. ever goes public, consider buying. Fabulous relays and communication equipment for the utility and industrial power system space, and exceptional service.

Q: What would you view as being the top Canadian compounders over say a 10-15 year period. I'm thinking CSU and ATD. What others for investors that want compounding growth over many years.

Q: Hi Team,
I continue to hold Nvei with big losses. Would you endorse a switch into HPS.A today? Which stock/ company do you see having more potential say 3-5yrs down the road when comparing the two? Also, do you know the earnings dates for both?

Thanks,
Shane.

Q: Hi Team,
I was debating if it was time to trim some NVDA after the big gains the stock has had over the past while. Do you have any quality growth names that would you suggest buying with the funds if I do decide to trim at this point? From my end I was thinking of HPS.A...would this be advisable? Or perhaps ISRG. Your opinion would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Shane.

Q: Good Evening
I am a long time holder of Premium Brands, have always liked its prospects but have grown impatient with the stagnation in stock price. Considering a move to Hammond but wonder if I have missed out on the run up in price. Would you endorse the switch or have another suggestion. When I have made these types of decisions in the past many times patience would have been the best move.
Thank you

Q: Hi,
Kicking myself in the butt for not buying SMCI a few months back after humming and hawing about it. I guess because I have a large NVDA and GOOG position already so didn’t want too much AI exposure.

For some of these names that have run hard over the last 3-6 months, would you add or initiate new positions? I own NVDA, HPS.A and TVK and have nice gains but want to slightly add for long term. I’m reluctant now to buy these new daily highs in SMCI and VRT, afraid of a sharp pullback. How would you proceed? For all the stocks mentioned, what inning do you think we’re in for each? Still long runways? And I know it’s hard, but what would be good price targets to buy if they pulled back? Thanks!
