Q: Hi,

Long time subscriber and was curious as to the weightings of these four stocks in the BP. ranging from 1.15% to 1.76%. Conventional wisdom is that as weightings get closer to 1%, any movement has less effect on the overall portfolio.

What does one look for to justify holding on to these smaller holdings? I have a long time frame, and I know three of the four are recent additions, with OTEX being increased once.

Just looking for my held to be held, I suppose.

Thanks in advance.

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,
