Hi 5i,
I'm looking to make the material sector within my portfolio better. Can you please help me by ranking these companies for me and maybe let me know if something isn't needed or something should be added to give strength and diversification. Truly appreciate your service.

Q: Good morning Peter, Ryan, and Team,

In our combined accounts, we are overweight in the Consumer Cyclical sector, and hold ATD, BYD, CCL.B, and MG. These stocks have been held for some time, so we have reasonable profits in all four.

In order to raise cash for our under-represented energy sector, please rank the four Consumer Cyclical stocks in order of the first to sell or reduce.

Our Energy holdings include ENB, TOU, and TVE. Please suggest three or four stocks in this sector that would be complimentary to the three already held.

Please deduct as many credits as necessary for this somewhat long question, and as always, thanks for your valuable insight.

Q: Hi 5i,

My question concerns CCL. I bought in 2017 just before the 5-1 share split. I am now underwater , not counting dividends for what is approaching a five year hold. I do not dislike the Company, however am concerned that I am holding onto dead weight. While I realize the Company had tremendous growth leading up to the split, it seems that it is now rangebound. Can you offer any reassurance that this phase is consolidation and that there is more growth on the way?

Q: I want to initiate positions in my unregistered investment account, but if I buy all 8 above stocks, each position would be extremely small. (But that is still an option.) Considering thoughts on inflation and interest rates, could you put these in order of priority for purchase now. These positions would primarily be for safety, with a bit of income, which is non-essential, and some growth, which is also not essential. Just looking for your confidence level of these as companies for the longish term.

Q: Hello,
I have relatively small positions in these names. Would you add to all 3 names (ignoring sectors and sizes) or which name would you add to if not all 3? Long term investment. Thank you for the great service!

Q: Hi Peter, Ryan, and Team,

I’m overweight in Consumer Cyclical, and need to raise some cash for an underweight sector. Between CCL.B and MG, please rank them in order to sell a partial position. I like them both, so this is a tough decision! Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Q: CCL.b reports next week and I'd like to know your level of concern about them around this Qtr. I'm trying to get a sense as to their possible sensitivity to input cost inflation. So I'd like to know your thoughts around them perhaps meeting/exceeding this reporting qtr BUT commentary that they are uncertain/fearful around next qtr due to supply chain constraints/inflation. Lots of companies seem to be beating their numbers but getting hammered because of supply chain commentary on conference call. Basically asking what CCL's sensitivity is to the current narrative around supply chains/inflation. Thank you as always.
