Q: In anticipation of a possible recession in the near future, I would like to slowly tweak a few of my holdings. Could you please list some of the best sectors to hold in a recession, and if possible, list a few excellent Canadian companies in each sector and perhaps some US stocks. What may be the worst sectors to hold in a recession? Sorry, this is a big question, but one that I think many members may be thinking about.
Thanks!

Q: It seems to me that going forward inflation worries are real. Assuming my thesis is correct, I have read that one way for investors to protect their portfolios is to buy companies with "pricing power". What exactly is pricing power and can you give me a list of Canadian and American companies that currently have the most pricing power.

Q: These four fine companies are all RSI oversold at present. I know you like all of them, or have, and am wondering if they could be considered strong buys at these levels ( for long term holders) or whether best to wait and see what the coming weeks bring us all. What order of priority would you give them for current investment? BTW, thanks for the consistently calm and perspective-driven approach you take in your advice.
