Q: Good morning,

As a follow-up to Davidís question in May about CRH becoming listed on a US exchange:
If I buy the current CRH adrs, do they become automatically converted to the US listed shares when the new listing becomes available? Just curious how that would workÖ

And can I get your current thoughts on the quality and valuation of this CRH? Is it a buy at this price? Iím looking to add to my only other materials stock, which is LIN.

Thank you,

Q: I would like to add to above existing positions.
I believe that CSU dropped enough to make it interesting after recent new highs. LIN looks like a steady large company with a good future. GEI has a nice dividend and good analyst reports.
Please give me your opinions on each.
Thank you

Q: Hello 5i
Could you please provide me with the best Palladium and Neon play out there please? Please mention why you like the choice. Would it be better to side with Neon
as its supply from Mariupol and Odessa (Ingas and Cryoin) will be affected for a long time...or 37% of Pallidium comes from Russia and that will probably never come back to markets here. Or is there another element in chip manufacturing that you are thinking of?
Thank you

Q: I have historically held my investments in mutual funds through a financial advisor. I subscribed to 5i Research approximately 3 years ago and made my first investments in equities and an ETF based primarily upon information obtained from 5i Research. The returns on VGRO ETF and my equities have been 2 to 4 times the gain for my mutual funds. I recently upgraded my subscription to include Portfolio Analytics. Based upon portfolio analytics, my current portfolio is reasonably well balanced with recommendations to add healthcare and industrials as well as some international exposure. I have cash on hand that I want to invest. I will hold my investments for the next 5 to 10 years. I am looking at purchasing some additional equities and an ETF with good growth potential at moderate risk. Please provide top 10 recommendations with rankings for stocks that I should consider adding to my portfolio. Please provide recommendations for top 5 ETFs with rankings that I should consider adding to my portfolio. What is your current view on VGRO? Would you suggest topping up my investment in VGRO?

Q: A great service could please recommend your top 5 helium plays. I think if you look into it you will see a diminishing supply and an increasing demand. In interesting and growing industries microchip production, medicine and outer space. Could you let me know when you will cover this topic.
I currently like Dme, heli and RHC. Dme seems to be way ahead and an Esg type company. Keep up the great work.

Q: Australia seems uniquely positioned to join and / or lead the green energy wave with both ample green resources and rich mineral deposits.
Whereas electric may have "won" the automotive market, still up for grabs are the heavy industrial applications - trucking, shipping, aviation, steel production....
Reference the Fortesque move into green steel production via green hydrogen.
Do you see any opportunities here, how to participate? When will this put pressure on conventional steel like LIF?

Q: As a member for many years, I would like to thank you for the wonderful service you provide to all of us. I have learned so much by reading the daily questions, your responses, and your blogs and updates. Right now in my RRIF, I would like to top up either Trane or Linde on the US side, or TCN on the Canadian side. If you would rank them according to your best estimate for capital growth over the next few years, I would appreciate it. Thank you, Jane N
