Q: Hello Folks:
Currently we own CMI and NOC however have in the past also owned DEERE and CAT.

We have owned NOC for a couple of years and it never comes close to meeting expectations; while the other three have done well.

What do you think of swapping NOC for DEERE as there is heavy demand for farm equipment this year because of high crop prices (particularly U.S.).

How would you rank these four companies and do you feel there are other better large cap U.S. company choices in this sector?

Thanks again for this wonderful service

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: Hello Folks:
What is your opinion of these companies:
Caterpillar, cummins, cosco, walmart
I currently own caterpillar, cummins and cosco. Cummins and cosco have turned out very well. while caterpillar has struggled. Do you think industrials have much upside?
I am interested in what consumer staple businesses or others you may recommend such as cosco, walmart, touche card etc. to see us through these strange times.
Thank you very much

Q: Greetings:
Thanks for the recommendation on TFII - i already own this one in my cdn accounts but am looking for a comparable in the US but many are trading at significantly higher multiples. Would CMI be consider a reasonable investment to consider. It is trading at a reasonable multiple, pays a good dividend and would benefit from the transportation theme. Your thoughts??

Q: I am interested in buying Cummins for a long term (5-10 year) hold, or a comparable industrial in USF. Honeywell is my only other USF industrial. Could you please give me your opinion on purchasing it on the fall, or recommend other industrials, with a at least a small dividend.
Your advise is always appreciated!

Q: I would be thankful for some substantive updated comment on Cummins, . Financial sites give mixed opinions, including for example: “no growth; low ROE ; PEG is too high.... &c” . I have CMI , 2% of folio, in non-tax registered accounts Loss in CMI has been reduced. Rsing tide thing. Is CMI now competitive in its industry? Is it a technology leader (if you know)? Is CMI at least keeping up with new tech. and developments in its core products?

CMI pays an attractive dividend, which is hot button now that the resident 2 year old has lungs that allow her to scream loud enough to wake neighborhood. CMI is part of the group meant to pay much of her future education. CMI’s trailing dividend is around 3.4 % . Notwithstanding that good dividend, my ‘Lessons Learned’ file reminds me that being enamored with high dividends can be unwise. I am the idiot who hung on to tons and tons Nortel, AGF, and Och-Ziff ( My stupidity prompts me therefore to seek your objective opinion.
