Q: Hi 5i,

I was looking forward to the US part of the answer to Aleemís recent question.

Specifically, can I get your two top US picks for each of consumer cyclical, consumer defensive and industrials based on current valuation and long-term growth.

Thanks as always,

Kevin

Q: Hi Peter and Team;
Thanks for the info and advice on PKI.
I have made a good gain and sold a 5% position in my RRIF.
Could you offer 3 CDN and 3 US that you would be comfortable in starting today with a 2.5 % for long term investing in a well balanced RRIF? Would you lean towards US or CND for GROWTH?
Thanks for the excellent analysis!

Q: Questions about Disney appear fairly regularly. The answers in the last few months remain fairly positive, but I thought to check in on your current thoughts.

I can't understand the P/E, your company report shows it at 81.9. Can you verify that and offer any suggestion why it is so high?

I wonder about some potential headwinds, including continued Covid (less travel); a recession (less holiday spending); inflation (price hikes for their theme parks + cruises); recent labour / political issues (Florida); being ahead of their sales. And who knows what else?

I am down a fair bit after buying 8 months ago and am getting impatient. I am thinking of selling my position in DIS and moving to TT, one of your long time favourites. If it were you, would you make this move or hang on to DIS. And why, either way.

Thanks much for your excellent service.

Q: I have historically held my investments in mutual funds through a financial advisor. I subscribed to 5i Research approximately 3 years ago and made my first investments in equities and an ETF based primarily upon information obtained from 5i Research. The returns on VGRO ETF and my equities have been 2 to 4 times the gain for my mutual funds. I recently upgraded my subscription to include Portfolio Analytics. Based upon portfolio analytics, my current portfolio is reasonably well balanced with recommendations to add healthcare and industrials as well as some international exposure. I have cash on hand that I want to invest. I will hold my investments for the next 5 to 10 years. I am looking at purchasing some additional equities and an ETF with good growth potential at moderate risk. Please provide top 10 recommendations with rankings for stocks that I should consider adding to my portfolio. Please provide recommendations for top 5 ETFs with rankings that I should consider adding to my portfolio. What is your current view on VGRO? Would you suggest topping up my investment in VGRO?

Q: What is your opinion on the activist investor situation at CNR? I remember when this happened with CP a few years ago. Even though I never bought in, the stock did very well in the years following Hunter Harrison being appointed CEO.

I'm asking because I am currently light in industrials, I have postions in TT, WSP, TFI, XYL. I was considering a position in CNR for my RRSP.
