Investment Q&A

Not investment advice or solicitation to buy/sell securities. Do your own due diligence and/or consult an advisor.

Q: Good morning 5i team,

Thanks for the amazing platform and service.

Would you invest in gold stocks in the current market and world environment?

My position in precious metals and materials is lacking. This is something I normally purchase cyclically and sell when necessary.

If so. What would your top rec's be?

Thanks a ton!

Q: Good morning,
Thanks for your great service.
Today my question revolves around AU (gold) royalties and return of inflation - once the economy opens up & we start spending «en masse» our accumulated savings -.
I have read that royalties might be better than AU companies as they do not have the same cap ex as AU companies and they employ less human resources. I am assuming that they also have less debt on the balance sheet .
Whether you prefer AU royalties vs AU etf or specific AU companies o even PHYS ?
Which royalty would you prefer ?
Would a precious metal royalty be a judicious addition to a portfolio ? Such as MMX, ALS, LIF ?
I am well diversified and have a substantial portfolio.
Deduct as many points as you see fit.
Best Regards,

Q: In my previous question about Earth Alive Clean Technology you mentioned the % of insider and institutional holding, wouldn’t you view that as a positive , especially for such a small company? The market for the sectors they’re in is very large, with the above companies I’ve referenced, if Earth Alive Clean can grab an increase in market share with their new products it could transformational for them , no?

Q: Hi!
Just wondering if you still like gold and if so why, and should precious metals always be held as a certain percentage in one's portfolio even if it is trending lower. What percentage would you want to see in precious metals? Would you ever put a stop loss on something like FNV or just hold in your portfolio forever, watch it go down and hopefully back up one day?
