Investment Q&A

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

Q: So, this is quite a mess we find ourselves in. However, we will eventually come out of it. I'm curious, where do you think the best money will be made going forward? Which 3 or 4 sectors do you think might lead us out of the situaltion and what is the absolute best company, on most all metrics, in each of the sectors. I'm open to etiher Canadian or global companies. Thanks for your opinion.

Q: Can I please get your opinion on the consumer cyclical company Traeger Inc. (COOK). Since its IPO in 2021 it has declined close to 90%. Normally this trend would not appeal to me but I do find it interesting the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan is the largest shareholder. What do you think of this company after a year of being public and do you think it has any prospects? If you are not in favor of this company, can you suggest some other consumer cyclical names in the US that would think highly of? Portfolio analytics suggests I should increase my consumer cyclical weighting.

Q: Portfolio Analytics is saying I need to increase consumer cyclical and defensive holding. Can you give me a couple of stocks in Canada and the United States with steady dividends and low risk. And a couple of ETF's too.

Q: I have a significant amount of cash to invest. I would like to allocate to some very high-quality stocks across various industries that can be bought and held for a long period of time so they can compound. If you could pick 10 companies that meet this criteria, what would they be? I was thinking about BAM, MSFT, V, COST, CP, UNH, HD, JNJ, GOOG, BRK.b but am open to suggestions or changes to this list. No banks or energy please.

Q: Morning 5i team, thanks for all the great advice you supply to the members.
I have $50K to invest and would like your advice. This is what Iím currently holding in my non registered account.

AC, BYD, GSY, LSPD, SHOP, TDB3098, TOI
US
AAPL, SQ, CRWD, CSX, ETSY, MA, MSFT, NVDA, PYPL, UXI, ROBO, U

Considering my high exposure to Tech and your last market update, I might need to consider more consumer cyclical and financial stocks as well as others to balance the portfolio. Iím looking to have a mix of growth and value holdings.

I would appreciate your recommendations on new Canadian or US acquisitions and possible entry points. Can you recommend one of two of the US Tech stocks to sell and replace it with GOOG.

Please take as many credits a you see fit.

Thanks
Joe

Q: Looking for 10+ "steady compounders" CAD and US for long-term portfolio core and could you provide a short comment on why you like it and risks.
Thank you

Q: Hi 5i,

I have small positions in each of these three travel businesses. I was thinking of selling one to add to the other two, in an effort to be more efficient in my holdings. Would this be a good idea or would the diversification of holding all three be worthwhile?

If selling one, which would be your choice and why? I know you have recommended BKNG in the past but I sometimes wonder whether the other two have a stronger moat?

Growth investor with a long-term time frame.

Thank you, Doris
