Q: HI,

I'm interested in resource stocks that have long term demand - five years or more. Unlike oil/gas stocks that I'm told are too cyclical for long term holds. What resource or resources - copper, steel, uranium, aluminum, fertilizer, etc. - do you feel is reasonably safe and can you suggest some ways to play it in both Canada and the US?

Q: Hi,
I am seeing what appears to be a surge in copper and wondering if this might be an opportunity to invest in either an ETF or individual stock. Given the current market, which would you prefer? Risk tolerance is fairly high, but I have little diversification in the materials sector other than GDX and SLX. Most of my available cash is in US dollars, within tax sheltered accounts. Thanks in advance for your sage advice!

Q: Given the increasing implied VOL in options, what are your favourite names in CAD and USD for covered call strategies?

Looking for stocks that you already like that have reasonably liquid options (I know harder in CAD) and you think have excellent bounce back potential and wouldn't mind owning for 2-3 years. Thanks

Q: Hello Peter,
Thank you for recommending Tamarack(TVE). 10% in the last few days, I will take that.
My question is on Lundin for copper/base metals. I saw your recommended that a couple of days ago and today it had a nice pop of 10%. Is the easy money already made or it will still be your preferred choice? Or would you suggest another name? Does not necessarily have to be on tsx,
Regards
Rajiv

Q: At present my only position in materials is a 2.5 % weight in FNV, and am looking at adding one position. I am considering one of these 4. I have heard that Lun had some issues in Chile and am a bit concerned that Teck.B might have a bit of a drag from coal being out of favour with ESG considerations;. Do you think these concerns are meaningful? In any event, of the 4, which one would you want to choose, and why? Thanks for your excellent service.
