Q: Hello guys,
I was hoping you could rate the current buy-ability of these industrial discretionary companies (byd,doo,mg,tt,sis) and of these clothing discretionary companies (goos, lulu,nke, atz) with 10 being a great buy, for new money. Any concerns, and is there anything similar that you like better?

Q: As I write this, Friday mid afternoon, all of the markets are sharply higher. Gains seem to be pretty much across the board. I like to look at outliers that are bucking the trend. There are a few stocks that you have been optimistic about that are actually down today. Wondering if any of these are not as favoured by the market, given their performance today. Perhaps issues with recent results. Understanding that you can't read too much into one day's trading, but several of these have dropped quite a bit lately, and I'm wondering what your current feelings would be on buying these today for a long term hold in a diversified portfolio. Would you give each a rating from 1 to 10 as to how strongly you would want each of these in a portfolio? BYD, CSU, CTS, DOO, DND, ENGH, LNF, PBH, REAL, STC.

Q: Hello 5i team,

According to portfolio analytics, I am underweight in Consumer Staples and Consumer Discretionary as well as US exposure. I am a growth investor with a long-term horizon. This is for a TFSA.

In Consumer Staples I hold ATD.B and PBH and was thinking of adding COST.US.

In Consumer Discretionary I have ATZ, BOYD, DOO, LULU.US and was thinking of adding MG and possibly LNF.

Could you suggest some Canadian and US names for both Staples and Discretionary that would compliment my existing holdings?

Thanks for your advice.

Q: Roll-up companies can be amazing wealth compounders over time (CSU and BYD, for example). Do you have any tips on how to spot a good roll-up oriented company during the early stages of their development? Were there any specific catalysts or metrics you looked for when initiating coverage of CSU and BYD?

Two examples of roll-up companies I am looking into are PHA and NLH, which operate in the health care space. I know these two companies are probably too small for 5i to cover currently (but CSU and BYD were also small once-upon-a-time), but I am wondering what I should look out for when evaluating these two companies.
