Q: Hi Peter,

You had this qn on Jan. 23, 2023:

My sister wants to invest in 10 Canadian stocks that are relatively safe in terms of capital preservation but which offer possible dividend and growth . Hopefully the stocks would be in different sectors that you would recommend.

Now, for a 5 yr + time period, what 11 US quality stock from each sector would you recommend ?

Please deduct as many credits as necessary.

Thanks a million.

Q: It seems agriculture companies are doing well in the current and probably future environment. NTR looks good but has already moved up a lot. Appreciate your opinion on whether it is still wise to take a new position. Also, do you know of other companies that should benefit from the current dynamics. I'm open to Canadian or other ideas.

Q: Hi,
I sold my NTR back in Dec for some tax loss selling in margin account. I bought MOS as a proxy and its up 20% since then. Should I switch back to NTR now or keep holding MOS? Would have to report a gain on MOS now if I switched back. How does NTR and MOS compare now and what are the growth prospects going forward. Looking at historical performance, they move somewhat in tandem to each other. Thanks!

Q: My portfolio analysis suggests I am underweight in Basic Materials, Consumer Cyclicals, Utilities and Healthcare. I have USD to invest as I am also underweight in the US. Could you give me your 2 best suggestions for overall return (not high-risk) in each of these sectors individually as well as a group.

With increasing inflation of grocery bills, do you have suggestions on how to play this situation. I am thinking an ETF representing a bundle of basic food items or individual companies providing inputs such as Agrium?
