Q: Hi 5i Team,

I'm trying to clean up my US Portfolio so that I'm at 20-25 equities total. Please advise which 20-25 companies you would keep for a 5-10+ hold with balance/diversification but also some growth in mind.

Q: Hello Folks:

Recently we purchased a position ($210) in BA feeling it had good $165.00
Our other option at the time was GE
Did we make the wrong decision?
How do you consider upside of each of these 2 companies; would you feel we should take a BA loss to invest in GE.
In the past we have been long term investors of each of these two companies.
Perhaps neither has much up-side.
Thank you so much

Q: I have purchased the above US stocks in the last 6 months. AMZN is down 15%, CRWD is down 27% and LNTH is down 25%. The rest are in the green. AMZN position size is twice as large as CRWD and LNTH. I have $10,000 more to deploy. Would you do a 33% split on the 3 or what are your thoughts on this?

Q: Morning... you mentioned XYL as on of your 4 favourite industrials. Could you update the other 3 for us.

Where would BA fit? Would you consider it a buy? Why or why not...

thanks, Mark

Q: Hello Peter,

We are seeking advice on how to play the infastructure game now that Biden confirmed on Sunday that it is a stand-alone deal. We are light on Steel, Industrials, Manufacturing, Aerospace, Transportation, Materials, and 5G. We have some green energy with BEP.UN & AQN. We will reshuffle the deck by reducing Tech stocks to accommodate the shift.

Can you rank the following stocks in the categories 1st to last and add any other stocks that may be a better choice than those listed
Steel: RS, NUE, SCHN
Industrials: DD, HON (+ any other suggestions)
Aerospace: LMT, BA
Transportation: WSP, TFII, UNP, CNR, CP (+ any other suggestions)
Materials: CX (+ any other suggestions)
Manufacturing: (suggestions please)

My last question is ask your opinion of the top 8 stocks (please rank) for the infastructure deal regardless of the sector.

Thank you for your great service.

Debbie and Jerry

Q: Hi Peter/Ryan, I've never held an American company in my accounts and was thinking of adding either BA or LMT in either my TFSA or RRSP account. Which company would you suggest and which account would be better for it, oh and is there a good reason not to hold an American company in either of these account. Thanks for all you guys do.

Q: Hi team,

I'm interested in adding two defense companies to my holdings, for a 3-5 year period (perhaps longer) and I'm interested to know which companies you would recommend considering?
The companies that I'm looking at right now include LMT, NOC, RTX, GM, BA, HON. Are there other companies I should also be looking at?
Could you please rank the listed companies in order of preference?

Thank you for all that you do!

Q: Hello Folks:
For a number of years I was a satisfied Boeing shareholder, but switched to NOC and RTX when Boeing's problems surfaced (taking a $100.00 hit), subsequently investing in NOC and RTX.
As of today, how would you view and compare these companies potential; I do regret not re-purchasing BA when it was down as it is a strong contender in the industry, however do have companies such as GE in my rear view mirror.

Thanks so much for your good service

Q: Hi, I am looking to put some US funds into companies/sectors, which will benefit from the reopening of economy. I also read that small caps generally outperform when economy rebounds. Could you recommend some USD ETf's and few large cap US stocks, still trading below their pre pandemic levels in such sectors, in order of preference. Thank You
