Q: Greetings 5i,

What are your thoughts on INTEL? What are your thougths on the domestic tailwinds via Biden Administration and roughly 75B in federal support for domestic chip manufacturers? Seems almost like the industry is being considered a matter of national sercurity in the US and will back the chip makers. Are there other companies who stand to do well in this environment?

Q: Hello Peter,
Thank you for your suggestion to have some silver in the portfolio. It got life just when I was considering an exit . This question is also somewhat related.
I am beginning to think that Energy and Commodities have got significant room to run this summer. I am overweight technology and overweight semiconductors within. All my favorite growth stocks besides UPST.
To increase my portfolio in energy and commodities I need to reduce technology including names like NVDA AMAT GOOG etc. I am thinking that the tech sector will not react violently to the upside and there will be sufficient time to rotate back from energy and commodities.
However, I also feel that just when I throw in the towel, the market will find support and bounce back. I do believe in their long term future but perhaps not a bad idea to trade the trend for now. I am on the fence with financials too at the moment, what with the war, asset freezes, bans and Powell tempering his tone.
What would you suggest to me.

Q: Hello Peter,

I am leaning towards going all in with my borrowed chips for swing trades. This would be separate from my long term holdings. I would appreciate your opinion please.

Towards that objective, I have short listed the following:

I think diversification does not matter for swing trades and, understanding that this is a crap shoot could you please suggest approx. 5-6 stocks, either from this list or others that you would suggest.

Q: I've been lucky enough to own NVDA in the last year. Its now 4% of my portfolio. I'm considering buying a semi supplier like AMAT, LRCX,ASML, etc. What do you think? is it too much to own NVDA and a supplier? if so, which would you suggest?

Q: Retired, dividend-income investor. Reading lots about supply chain shortages (semi-conductors, copper, steel, etc). How are we best to play this?

Should we consider selecting companies within specific industries (Copper Mountain or Teck comes to mind) or should we go the ETF route (via ZMT or another suggestion via 5iR)?

A dividend would be a bonus. BTW, in the materials sector I already own NTR.

Please list some companies that I can research.
