Q: I was watching Xylem's investor day presentation today. One of the things they mentioned was:

"Underlying demand continues to be robust, with higher-than-expected growth in orders and backlog, but the global supply chain environment has become increasingly volatile, including with respect to escalating electronic component shortages. The Company currently estimates adverse revenue impacts of approximately $100 million in the second half of the year"

Is this part of the reason the stock is down today? I own it in my margin account, and was planning on starting a small position in my RRSP. You think this dip is a good entry point?

Q: Decision time...all because WIR.UN is being acquired. When WIR.UN was bought in Cdn loonies, I flipped it to the US dollar side of the account. Now will have US dollars to top up one or more of 44 US positions. But which ones? Like BLK, a very large asset manager†with exposure to index†ETF that has held up well. Or a specialty retailer, DG. Or TDOC that looks to have a bright future but is down at the moment market†price wise. Or finally, XYL with it's water machinery and it has market momentum at this time. Me, looking for your take....like which one or some of these at this time or any others US ones you are excited about. Many thanks for your insights, aka guidance to me.........Tom

Q: Good evening,

Iím looking to increase my stock holdings in the industrial sector. I currently own HON at 3% and have a small position in XBC (due to recent declines). Iíd like to add 3 long-term stocks and have identified the following as options: CNR, WSP or J, TFII, XYL, ATA, ROP. I can accept higher risk and would like companies that are leaders or doing something new/innovative in their area. I was also thinking of diversifying within the industrial sector. Iím wondering what 3 additions youíd pick at this time, either from my list above or others that I may have missed? Iím also wondering whether I should add to XBC at this point?

Thank you for great this service!
