Q: I want to consider buying a small group of stocks (5-10) that would capture the future growth (my assumption) of electric vehicles. These could be vehicle manufacturers, companies supplying key input/parts or other beneficiaries of EV growth. Do you have suggestions?

Q: Peter and His Wonder Team
I know I am way behind but I have just been reading about how autonomous-EV are going to be a hugh disrupter...I guess it is called TaaS. Does your Growth Portfolio have any exposer to this phenomena? If not do you have any suggestion of stocks that still have reasonable upside with this innovation. Thanks!

Q: Hi,

Despite chip shortages, I'm considering taking my first position in a vehicle manufacturer. I'm specifically interested first in LCID and second in F. While I expect F to have some very experienced managers/executives/board members, what can you tell me of the people directing LCID? Lots of previous experience and are they up for the task?

Q: Hi Peter and crew. I know that US tech companies are "not in your wheel house" and I also know that you have great insight. so I am interested in your opinions on the following.
I am watching that both Rivian and Global Foundries Inc. are applying to the SEC this fall to go public. Both appear to be in a good space for long term trends/needs. I am interested in long term investing in these companies when they come to market.
BTW - Peter, Loved the article in the FP about your father-in-law. Maybe the 2 above companies will give him " the action" he is looking for!

Q: Suggestions on how to invest to benefit from Biden’s proposed increased EV incentives to buy US manufactured electric vehicles? This potentially could speed up the transition (once the chip shortage is rectified).

Q: Good Afternoon Team, Thanks for your wonderful service. It helping me build a better portfolio. I have 2 stocks in Auto space Magna and Linmar. The current market value of both is the same. I know 5I is strongly recommending Magna. I am sitting on a good gain on Linmar and was thinking about switching it to Ford or GM. No tax consequences as its in TFSA. Have a long 3+ year outlook. The rationale for the same is to diversify within the same sector from Auto parts manufacturer to the Car manufacturer and look for higher growth over the years. Would you recommend the move, if yes which of the 2 stock you prefer or would you recommend something else. I have no other holding in Auto industry.

Q: Hi,
I have no exposure to electric vehicles (EV’s) within my portfolio.

As I not interested in investing in any Chinese EV stocks I am quite limited to Tesla.

However, I am not very comfortable with the cult like following of Tesla.
Is there anyway I could get some exposure to this disruptive industry , directly or indirectly and would you be able to recommend a few stocks ?

Q: A family member would like to build a US dollar portfolio with US stocks. My thought would be to do it along the lines of the 5iR Cdn Balance Portfolio. For example, JPMorgan would be the US stock for the BNS. With this in mind, and being able to tolerate risk and for a long-term intention, like 10 years, what would you suggest the 15+ position US portfolio would look like?....Thanks...Tom

Q: Hello 5i team. I wanted to get your opinion regarding these companies. With investment in Rivian by Ford, GM's EV product and new cars, they both seem like good value opportunities with upside. Can you compare the two from a valuation perspective, and give your opinion?

Also, I read that Intel has best in class driverless car tech. Their legacy business is a drag on their PE. What are your thoughts on Intel and would you be a buyer?
