Further to your response regarding inflation and five Canadian and US names that might perform better, do you also have five mid cap or smaller cap names that might benefit from inflation? Both US and CDN?

Q: Retired, dividend-income investor. Reading lots about supply chain shortages (semi-conductors, copper, steel, etc). How are we best to play this?

Should we consider selecting companies within specific industries (Copper Mountain or Teck comes to mind) or should we go the ETF route (via ZMT or another suggestion via 5iR)?

A dividend would be a bonus. BTW, in the materials sector I already own NTR.

Please list some companies that I can research.

Please list some ETFs that I can research.

Thanks...Steve

Q: Hello Peter and team;

I would appreciate your opinion on Cleveland Cliffs in particular and the outlook for steel industry in general. I already own Reliance Steel and cannot decide if I should increase my exposure to the industry; and if I do then diversify with CLF or double down on RS. I know you like RS but would be interested in knowing your opinion of CLF relative to RS as well.
Have an exposure through the coking coal space as well(SXC). If you are bullish on the sector, what would be your limit on sector exposure?

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)
5G: MRVL, ERIC

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.

Debbie and Jerry

Q: Hi Awesome 5i team, I have some cash to invest, in Canada, I am thinking of "AT", "GSY" &"CTS", some of these names are at all time high, could you please rank them from risk/growth perspective. Given recent volatility of the market, could you please provide a good entry point if you will.

For US, please also provide three names that are growth oriented, and three reflationary driven. All are for long term investment.

Thanks,

Q: I am rebalancing and need to add Material equities to my portfolio. Currently my only holding in that sector is MX:CA. Materials will represent 13% of the portfolio equal to my energy allotment. Generally speaking should I dispose of MX (because it is more or less energy focused)and start from scratch for sector investment? Can you provide some guidance on companies to check out? I have a 3-5 year horizon and like dividends.
