Q: Good morning Ryan, Peter, and Team,

These are some of the stocks in my "growth" basket that have been most decimated in recent weeks. In which order might you sell, or would you suggest staying the course at this stage, given the dramatic share price drops? If selling, where might you move some of the cash for a (hopeful) rebound potential over the next six months? Thanks. Brad

Q: Dear Peter and Ryan.

I allocated almost same dollar amount in Meta (FB) (formerly known as Facebook), Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL), Alphabet (GOOG), NVDA and others. I invested a bit heavily in tech stocks and got hammered. I was disappointed in the business model of Meta lately. Today after trading hours, Meta released earnings and the price jumped. I think this may be a good opportunity to sell tomorrow and switch to some non-tech sectors. How do you think? What one or two names would you recommend to invest now to diversify away from high growth stocks?

Thank you,

Q: Good evening,

Iím looking to increase my stock holdings in the industrial sector. I currently own HON at 3% and have a small position in XBC (due to recent declines). Iíd like to add 3 long-term stocks and have identified the following as options: CNR, WSP or J, TFII, XYL, ATA, ROP. I can accept higher risk and would like companies that are leaders or doing something new/innovative in their area. I was also thinking of diversifying within the industrial sector. Iím wondering what 3 additions youíd pick at this time, either from my list above or others that I may have missed? Iím also wondering whether I should add to XBC at this point?

Thank you for great this 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.

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: Significant infrastructure is being planned in the U.S., also in the defense sector. Would any of these stocks listed (or others) benefit more or less from this initiative?
Thank you for your insights!

Q: Among these three companies, which would be your objective choice realizing that TT seems to be favored. But have the other two similar potential?
Thank you, Team
(My trading portfolio return was the highest ever last year, thanks to your excellent recommendations!)

Read Answer Asked by Sigrid on February 09, 2021

Q: HON has done reasonably well and now seems fully valued. CFRA has a sell rating on it and RBC-DI lowered its its opinion on HONís share price appreciation in November. Would you sell HON, and if yes, why please? Please ignore tax impact. If you would hold, why please? If you would sell, would you replace with another US industrial and if yes, which one(s), given the generally toppy valuations today.
