Q: Eastman just had their earnings a few days ago. What do you think of the stock? Are there better opportunities in the sector, CDN or US? I have a small position in my RRSP, and was thinking of adding to it.

Thank you for all you do.

Q: Hi - it's been a while since I've seen comments on SHW so wanted to know your current thoughts as it approaches its earnings release in a couple of weeks. Does it seem to be a bit pricey based on it's historical valuations? Do you have any concerns about this qtr and their possible upcoming commentary? Is it a price taker or setter. Bottom line...any concerns in near term and especially since market seems to be in mode for beating down high multiple stocks. Thanks as always

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. I would also like to know if there are Canadian companies more attractive than your US suggestions in the same sector. Thank you for your help over the years

Q: Hi, Can you name a few companies say 3 Us and 3 canadian companies who have been prolific in creating value for their shareholders either by buying back shares/not increasing their share count while growing consistently. A small dividend if applicable but leaning more towards growth in earnings. Preferably with some sort of monopoly or advantage in their field. Thank you.

Q: Hello Peter and the 5I team

I am using SHERWIN-WILLIAMS CO as an example. I like to use ROE as one of the main numbers I look at before I buy a stock, is there a point when a high ROE is a concern. SHW has a ROE of 145 ( according to my RBC banking brokerage info) is this too high? At what level do red flags come up and what causes extremely high ROE. What statistics do you look at and could you rank them for their importance in your check list.
