I'm looking to get into Europe through multi nationals in the UK. Currently own Rio-tinto and Unilever. If you could name five other dividend paying companies trading on a US exchange worth buying it would be very helpful.
Thank you!

Q: Good day 5i,

I currently hold positions in 5 semi-conductor companies: Nvidia, ASML, AMD, Taiwan Semi and Axcelis. I'd like to concentrate the positions in order to make the remaining positions more meaningful. However, I like all of these companies and feel they all have great growth ahead. If you were to concentrate this group, which would you sell? With those funds, in what order would you add to the others? Or would you keep all of them?

Growth-oriented investor, comfortable with volatility.

Thank you for your insights,

Q: Hi team,

This is more of a second order question - so nvda is clearly doing very well, where could we look for benefit on the supplier side, ie. the inputs for what they need for the AI?
