Q: Hi All;

I am looking through potential Materials companies for an investment and note in many questions here you single out EXP as a preferred investment in construction materials. Who would be their largest 3 competitors in this business segment, and of the 4 how would you rank them in terms of potential investment gains over a 5 year period?

Q: I have some USD cash sitting in my RRSP. What would be your most compelling buys today for an agressive investor for an RRSP, irregardless of sector. Kindly rank if possible. (with the caveat that tax loss selling isnít possible)

I was considering FCX or EXP as I am light on materials. Would either of these fit in an RRSP, and which of these two would be your preference at this time?

Thank you
Please deduct as you deem fit.

Q: Thoughts on the dramatic reversal today in NVDA? Are these just the bots selling and then retail panicking causing more selling? Near term top? What are your general thoughts on the markets currently? Does tech need a cooling off period to reset? If you were trimming NVDA, what are some best ideas non tech or AI related to currently buy or add to? Long term investor and focused on keeping position sizing in line. Thanks!

Q: Hello 5i team,
At the moment, I only have AEM for basic materials and wanted to add another company for more exposure to the materials sector. I had NTR (bought when it was Agrium) a few years ago and sold all shares when they were valued above $100.

I wanted to get back into NTR as I think it will not go lower then around $60 (has support there). You have CCL in the balance portfolio but seems to be in a holding pattern for the past 3 years.

My question is if you have your eye on other material sector companies that would fit the balance portfolio? With a decent dividend, and beaten down, do you think NTR is a good second materials stock to enter into?

Thank You,

Q: Hello, I recently sold my rental property in 2022, and I now have funds sitting in the bank, earning interest. My ultimate goal is to invest this money wisely and create a portfolio that can serve as an inheritance for my loved ones. I am currently in the process of assembling a collection of high-quality stocks.

For me, the presence or absence of dividends is not a decisive factor when selecting stocks. Could you kindly recommend two top-performing stocks in each sector of the global market? These core holdings will play a crucial role in achieving my long-term financial objectives.

As of now, I have already purchased shares in NVIDIA (NVDA), Meta, Intuitive Surgical (ISRG), Alphabet (GOOGL), Canada: Goeasy (GSY), Nuvei (NVEI), Definity Finacial (DFY), Boyd Group(BYD), Thomson Reuters (TRI), Aritzia (ATZ), and Nutrien (NTR).

Thank you in advance for your valuable insights.

Q: Interested in a pick in US building materials as a play on infrastructure spend but equities like Martin Marietta, Vulcan Materials, Granite Construction and Quanta seem expensive. However Eagle Materials appears cheaper. Of these 5 are there two you would comfortably buy today with greatest growth potential. Secondly which two seem to you to be least risky. Finally is there another building material equity you would prefer more than any of these and if so what would be your reasoning for that pick. Thanks as always.
