Q: With regards to the shift in consumer thinking related to moving away from using fossil fuels for home heating/cooling, are there any companies that would stand to benefit from the shift towards heat pumps?

Trane and Honeywell come to mind but are they actually good companies for investors? The 3 to 5 year charts show them as being somewhat rangebound.

Are there perhaps other companies? Or companies that supply the parts for the heat pumps?

Q: Please comment on the review from a new book from Michio Kaku and how the coming of quantum computing would affect companies in the SOX index such as NVDA. Are there any public or private companies at the forefront of this advance?

"The runaway success of the microchip processor may be reaching its end. Running up against the physical constraints of smaller and smaller sizes, traditional silicon chips are not likely to prove useful in solving humanity's greatest challenges, from climate change, to global starvation, to incurable diseases. But the quantum computer, which harnesses the power and complexity of the atomic realm, already promises to be every bit as revolutionary as the transistor and microchip once were. "

Apparently the auto industry and medical research areas are already using it.

Q: I have been able to top up my TFSA accounts and now find I am sitting on about 40K in USD. I am looking for growth, preferably with a dividend, in a well managed and reliable company, or companies. I'm overweight in Tech & Utilities, OK in Finance, low in Energy, underweight in Industrial. A quick look at the US sectors has given me the feeling that now isn't the time to start with Staples, Health Care or Utilities and that there seems to be caution with respect to Energy. Materials and possibly Industrials, which has puzzled me, as I would think China reopening and the US's infrastructure spending would have helped the last three sectors mentioned. I welcome your thoughts, and any suggestions, as they are usually very insightful!
