Q: Hello 5i
Your analysis tells me that i am underweight in basic materials. I have been thinking about buying more of Stella Jones, which i already own. But, as you will know, it has had a pretty good run recently. So, i was then wondering about looking for a good prospect that has been more beaten down and with a good chance of a rebound. Would you go with SJ, or would there be a better choice, either in Canada or US? Dividend doesn't matter. I have a feeling that this isn't a bad time to be looking at basic materials. Would you agree with that?
Thanks as always for your help

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!
