Investment Q&A

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

Q: A few weeks ago I asked about the virtues of owning XLE vs XEG. I ended up buying 5 postions in the following: TOU, KEL, WCP, ARX, TVE. Energy is now 3.5% of my overall portfolio.

My question is the following: for US exposure: may you please provide me your highest conviction name. If you had to chose between this US energy name an DIS for a total return in the next twelve months, which of the two would you side with?

Also, for the next twelve months, what portfolio allocation to energy would you deem optimal, given the current macro environnement?

Thank you and please deduct credits as you see fit.

Q: Could you please provide your top two picks in both the materials and energy sectors?
I don't have any investments in materials now and wonder if I should have something. Currently I hold ENB and PKI in energy and am thinking of switching PKI for TOU or SU.
The remainder of my portfolio is well balanced and as a retiree stability and income are more important than speculative growth.

Q: Hello Peter, Can I have your opinion please?

I am wondering if it might be a good idea to reduce my holdings in gold and silver stocks (maybe exit all my positions?), at least until May and buy some in the energy sector from the proceeds.
The reason behind this stems from yields going up- maybe the 10 yr goes to 2%. How likely is that? Apparently, the seasonal period of gold starts in summer.

My stocks in gold are at both ends of the large/small caps such as AEM/KL,FNV, KRR,MMX,WDO and PAAS.
I am under represented in energy with ENB,PPL and ALA.
What would be your suggestion? And if you agree, could you give me 1or 2 names to let go and 1 or 2 names to add.
Always appreciative of your thoughts.

Q: Prior to the above companies announcing 3rd. quarter earnings you indicated that bir probably had the most upside. Now that they have all reported is your view still the same. I hold all of the above, but feel free to recommend other companies in the oil and gas sector. Thanks for excellent service. Ken

Q: 1. May I then request you to give me a concentrated collection of small/midcaps energy stocks that you think will be comparable to an ETF? say ZJO?

Q: It seems like a lot of analysts are talking about a resource bull market especially regarding the inflation/stagflation discourse.
Do you feel we are heading into a resource bull market?
And, are there certain sectors you favour - Oil/gas, copper, uranium, food, precious metals?
Finally, are there any stocks within this very broad resource sector that you think is a standout. Please take as many credits as necessary
Much appreciated
