Q: Hi 5i
I would like to replace AEM in my LIF account with another basic material holding. My goal is growth. Both NTR and WFG are looking interesting now. Could you give your opinion of which would likely be the better play for a long term. With the pending slow down/recession would you switch now or wait?

Q: Hello,

Thanks for the response to my earlier question regarding which of the income stocks you would hold in a TFSA. Can you comment on my first statement regarding the illiquidity of the stock and how that would cause someone with a significant investment to be challenged in acquiring as much as what the daily volume has been? I have never thought of myself as a MM and I prefer not to be. Thanks.

Q: Deal terms are not yet available for the WFG buyout, I own 150 shares, bought at 113/share a few weeks back.

What are your initial thoughts? Hold and tender to the bid (whatever it is, presumably higher than $125 CAD/share)? Hold out for a white knight (seems unlikely)? Sell now and capture the gain in case the deal falls apart?

Something else?

Thanks for your time

Q: Your last report for SJ was in June 2021 and it received an A- rating. Do you still see this stock in the same category as SLF? I read in the GAM that SJ is getting into less profitable regular lumber and investors don't like it. Value metrics look good with F P/E 9.6, P/S 0.77, EV/EBITA 8.10, however, by comparison WFG appears to me to have a much better valuation: F P/E 3.7, P/S 0.83 and EV/EBITA 1.56. WFG seems the clear choice today. Would appreciate your comments for a long term investment in SJ and/or WFG. Thanks!!

Q: HI Peter and Staff

I own ITP in my basket of materials stocks. Trading at $1 below proposed sales price.

Assume the $9.99 * 2 is not an issue would you pull the trigger now and increase a modest position in TECK.B or wait for the sale to close?

Also assuming position in TECK.B is not overweight regardless of answer to first question would you continue to hold WFG in the basket or dump it in favour of increasing position in TECK.B?

Thanks for you you do

Q: Hi, One of my friends who is constructing a house told me costs of 2x4ís have gone up by five fold recently.. Is that reflected in the stock prices of companies like West Fraser? Is it too late to get in?
Also what are your thoughts on Aritizia going into this tough environment of higher interest rates and inflation..Will apparel companies typically prosper in such an environment? Thanks.
