Q: hi, portfolio analytics says I am underweight basic materials, consumer defensive, healthcare and industrials. can you provide a few Canadian and US equities in each category, that you would consider for medium to long term investment.
cheers, chris ( take as many credits as you need ).
further, I am overweight in utilities ( 18.6% of total holdings ) and financials ( 25.5 %). do you recommend trimming these 2 sectors? and in financials I own BN and BAM ( which I would suspect actually have cross-over with other sectors? )??

Q: Hi Peter and Team,

Happy Friday! Question for you about investing in vehicles related to copper. It feels like we are in and headed for a greater supply crunch for Copper as a commodity and I am wondering what your thoughts are on the direction of copper and best ways to be involved in the sector.

I put Foran Mining Company as the specific company for this question as I know Pierre Lassonde is involved in that and he is a legend in the industry so curious on your thoughts on it or if you have other ideas. Please feel free to take more than one credit if this is multiple questions.
