Q: I have two stocks in a registered account that seem to have stalled: J and HD. Both are up over time (J up 50%, HD 75%) but there hasn't been much movement lately. Given the absence of tax consequences, is it time to move on? And if yes, please provide two US industrials and two US consumer cyclicals to replace them. (AMZN already held.) Thank you.

Q: Hi Peter and 5iresearch team:
In your answer to Gerry's question on Feb 16, you mentioned that CSU and ATB have been the best Canadian compounders over the last ten years. You added DOL, BYD, TFII, BN, CLL.B, TRI based on historical performance and you are expecting LMN.V, TVK, HPS.A, TOI, GSY to be potential Canadian compounders in the future.

1. Would YOU still invest in CSU, ATB, DOL, BYD, TFII, BN, CLL.B, TRI with the same conviction and weighting?
2. Could you please provide a similar answer but for the US market? Please provide 10 or so best US compounders based on historical performance that YOU think investors should keep investing in and 5 or so US companies that YOU would buy as potential US compounders in the future.

Thank you for the great service.

Q: Nice acquisition today by TFII and a good move in the stock. TFII seems to have perfected the art of the acquisition and integrating into operations. I believe TFII is the largest trucking company in Canada. How do they rate compared to US firms? Is there a possibility that TFII might be in the sights of a big US firm? Could they be on the receiving end of takeover bid?
