Q: Hi Peter, Ryan, and Team,

Regarding Nutrien, I read your answer to 5i member Maureen, and also just finished today's article in the Globe and Mail:"Nutrien shares fade on disappointing first-quarter earnings" by Ian McGugan. In your view, is Ian's thesis valid, and would now be a good time to sell NTR if one has already made some money on it? What would be some better (?) and less volatile options in the Materials sector?

Thanks as always for your insight.

Q: I have always been puzzled by cyclical stocks. By way of example, I hold NTR in a non-registered account and have ridden it up (by 50%) and now down to 15%. Is the strategy for dealing with these stocks simply to ride out the bad times, knowing they will eventually cycle back? Or should I be selling on the way down and trying to figure out the best entry point when the stock starts to rebound? The matter is complicated, of course, by the tax consequences of selling in a non-registered account. Your advice regarding buying and selling cyclical stocks would be most appreciated. Thank you.

Q: Hi 5i
I would like to replace AEM in my LIF account with another basic material holding. My goal is growth. Both NTR and WFG are looking interesting now. Could you give your opinion of which would likely be the better play for a long term. With the pending slow down/recession would you switch now or wait?

Q: I bought Fpi as a diversifier for my portfolio. and a belief in the potential for farmland values to increase. It has steadily dropped in price….down 20%. Now I am questioning my thesis.

Do you see this turning around and worth holding , or better to bite the bullet sell and look at something like LAND or NTR or ADM/ Mosaic .. I do own NTR and am down a bit but still like it.

Thanks for your thoughts on this.
