Q: I've been looking at both of these companies but can only add one. BLDR seems to have a better performance looking backwards but you seem to like AXON better looking forwards. Can you tell me which one you like better and why, thanks.

Q: Could you please tell me which 3 GICS sectors you would expect to outperform over the next 3 years (excluding Technology), and a brief explanation of why? Also, could you please give me your top two stock picks (not ETFs) for each of those sectors ? Could be US or CAD stocks but I am looking for stocks that also pay a dividend. Greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Q: IBM pays a nice dividend that has shown good growth over the past 5 years (the last 3 years, not so much). How would you rank it for both income and equity growth going forward? It seems that at one time is was the leader in AI and now it does not seem to get mentioned in that vein.

Appreciate your insight.

Q: We hear a lot about which companies might do well with AI, but we don't hear much about who does not. Surely there must be losers, perhaps companies that currently offer services that will be turned over to cheaper bots as AI progresses through the economic system? Your thoughts are appreciated.

Q: Hi 5i.

Could you give five recommendations for 'hold forever' US stocks? I'm thinking the sort of companies you would never sell, and even pass the shares on through your estate, ideally.

Q: I am interested in investing in companies that are leaders in developing AI. So far I have identified GOOG, MSFT, NVDA, and AMD. Do you agree with this list and are you able to add to it? I have seen AMZN, AAPL, IBM and META with regard to AI, but are they simply users of AI rather than developers?
Thank you.

Q: Hi,
Of this list do any of these names have concerns and if so, what might they be? Are there any you would wish to wait longer before buying? Any you do not think appropriate buys in this market? Others you feel are more compelling? If you were to buy these, in what order would you do so? I know - lots of questions - feel free to deduct accordingly! My preference is for stability of future earnings, lower or no debt and the dividend is a bit of a bonus, but not something to rely on. Many thanks!
