Q: A family member would like to build a US dollar portfolio with US stocks. My thought would be to do it along the lines of the 5iR Cdn Balance Portfolio. For example, JPMorgan would be the US stock for the BNS. With this in mind, and being able to tolerate risk and for a long-term intention, like 10 years, what would you suggest the 15+ position US portfolio would look like?....Thanks...Tom

Q: Hello 5I Team
Newmont Corporation is a US domiciled company and trades primarily on the US market (NEM:US) and it also trades on the Canadian Market (NGT:CA).
I am assuming the Canadian listing is a result of the Goldcorp acquisition in 2019.
1 - Which is the better market (Canada or US) to purchase Newmont on?
2 - Assuming the dividends from Newmont are not eligible for the dividend tax credit, would it be better to buy the Canadian domiciled companies (ABX, AEM, FNV, KL etc.) and receive eligible dividends? The yield on all the major gold miners is approximately 1 %, so I understand yield is not the primary reason for holding gold stocks.

Q: I was thinking of getting back into gold in some way. I recently sold barrick and newmont for pretty good returns. I currently have SLV and PPLT for metal ETFs. What would be the best gold miner to get into?

Q: I'm interested in Newmont (NEM) mining. Management has promised that their dividend is linked to the gold price. That sounds attrative if the biase is positive over the medium term. I feel like this is a good stock to have exposure to the gold sector, while be given a dividend to wait until the next upleg on the gold price. How does Newmont stack up with the other gold companies in your opinion?
