Q: The Economist has a recent article on "seven metals (aluminium, cobalt, copper, lithium, nickel, silver and zinc) that are critical to building an electricity economy".

What would be your preferred method of gaining exposure to some or all of these--single stock (no fees but won't touch on all seven materials) or ETF (more diversified but high fees in Canada, eg XBM)? I would be interested in a single stock (not a basket of stocks) for this purpose, or an ETF. Would be grateful if you could please provide suggestions. Thanks!

Q: Hello Peter,
For the potential surge in EV stocks in 2022, i am considering investing in rare earths and am trying to decide between Neo Performance in Canada or MP materials in US. Which one do you feel is better for longer term in the EV sector? Also, is there any news on Nuvei for big increase in share price today or is it simply catching up after the short seller report? Thanks very much.
