Investment Q&A

Not investment advice or solicitation to buy/sell securities. Do your own due diligence and/or consult an advisor.

Q: Hi Peter and crew. I know that US tech companies are "not in your wheel house" and I also know that you have great insight. so I am interested in your opinions on the following.
I am watching that both Rivian and Global Foundries Inc. are applying to the SEC this fall to go public. Both appear to be in a good space for long term trends/needs. I am interested in long term investing in these companies when they come to market.
BTW - Peter, Loved the article in the FP about your father-in-law. Maybe the 2 above companies will give him " the action" he is looking for!

Q: I would like to add some companies to my portfolio that pay dividends which are relatively secure and have debt levels that you think are manageable. I'd go so far as to say low debt levels, but that might exclude some companies that you think can manage a bit more debt. If possible, it would be helpful if you could suggest 6 Canadian and 6 American companies that fit the above criteria. Thanks as always for your valued opinion.

I read an article called “The World Relies on One Chip Maker in Taiwan, Leaving Everyone Vulnerable” that appeared on the WSJ.

Apart from TDM, NVDA & INTEL, are there any others names in the industry that you could share or recommend?

Q: Good Morning, I recently read in the FP that the new CEO of Intel Pat Gelsinger declared that "Intel is back" - Do you think that he can turn things around to participate in the huge demand for chips, and is this the time to invest?
I also know that you are not a huge fan of SPACS, however I am intrigued about investing along side in Bill Ackman's Pershing Square Tontine - thoughts?
With thanks JS

Q: Hello 5i team. I wanted to get your opinion regarding these companies. With investment in Rivian by Ford, GM's EV product and new cars, they both seem like good value opportunities with upside. Can you compare the two from a valuation perspective, and give your opinion?

Also, I read that Intel has best in class driverless car tech. Their legacy business is a drag on their PE. What are your thoughts on Intel and would you be a buyer?

Q: Intc has been doing very badly of late, with Apple and Microsoft designing their own chip. I am thinking of selling Intc and replacing it with 2 or 3 technology companies, not necessarily in the chip sector. Intc is 2% of my portfolio. What would be your picks. Thanks

Q: Hello, I have been holding Intel for more than 5 years now. According to what I read in the Q&A I believe the time has come to sell it and buy something else. Would that make sense to buy Roku to replace Intel? Another option would be either NVDA or QCOM? What would you do? Thank you, Gervais

Q: Hi, these are the companies that have not performed well since I bought them. Which of these do you think it is worth to keep in my portfolio considering that I aim to make >= 10% a year (including dividends) and it is for the long term (+20y) ? I think to replace HD by COST, INTC by NVDA or AMD, is it a good move in your opinion ? Thank you !
