Q: Good Morning
These stocks are in my wife's US Riff account
What US stock or stocks would you recommend as an addition to this list?
She is overweight in both finance and tech in her Canadian Riff so looking for alternative suggestions with some growth and a modest dividend?

Q: Good morning - I need more US exposure as I am overweight Canada. I will need to sell some/all of holdings I have in PBH, L, ATS, TOU, SU and EIF. I hate to sell any of these companies but someone's gotta go to raise cash. Taxes are not an issue. Can you suggest US companies that you would like just as much, which pay dividends and which will keep me in the realms of Industrial, Consumer Discretionary, Energy. Thank you.

Q: Some analysts I follow believe industrials will move as counties turn away from globalization . Reading through your previous answers you seemed to like ph and itw. I am looking for companies that already are positioned well and growing their earnings. Is there any other companies that could do well under this scenario ?

Q: Hi 5i, seems MG is pushing out some of their bets on EV and Autonomous trends, Do you still believe in their growth over the next 2 years after this quarter? I know they raised their divi, but I fear this stock may become a value trap. Also, please provide a few alternatives, no small caps please, either CAD or USD. Thx.

Q: I already hold a bit of TFII and WSP but would like more in industrials. Iím thinking of either adding to TFII or starting a position in STN or TT. Is there still good reason to add to TFII? If not, both STN and TT have good momentum, but as I already hold WSP, would TT make more sense?

Q: You touted this stock some time ago and I have done quite well by it ever since. However, you have not mentioned it lately. Is there any reason to suspect that it will not continue to grow despite it being in what I consider to be a growth area - HVAC both residential and commercial? Or is there another US industrial you feel provides better prospects?

Appreciate your insight.

Q: With regards to the shift in consumer thinking related to moving away from using fossil fuels for home heating/cooling, are there any companies that would stand to benefit from the shift towards heat pumps?

Trane and Honeywell come to mind but are they actually good companies for investors? The 3 to 5 year charts show them as being somewhat rangebound.

Are there perhaps other companies? Or companies that supply the parts for the heat pumps?
