Dec 7, 2021After a brief hiatus, we are back to discuss our appearance at the recent Virtual Canadian Money Show including Ryan's panel discussion on investing cycles and market valuations at present. Aaron hits the mailbag to answer a question on two unique small-cap royalty-based stocks, Nova Royalty Corp (NOVR: TSX-V) and Electric Royalties Ltd (ELEC: TSX-V). Nova is a royalty company focused on providing investors with exposure to the key building blocks of clean energy – copper and nickel. Electric Royalties was established to take advantage of the demand for a wide range of commodities (lithium, vanadium, manganese, tin, graphite, cobalt, nickel, zinc & copper) that should benefit from the drive toward electrification of a variety of consumer products including cars, rechargeable batteries, large scale energy storage, renewable energy generation, and other applications. Aaron takes a look at whether the businesses are producing anything close to cash flow or significant revenues at present. Finally, Brennan discusses a listener question on how to buy big US tech firms such as Amazon, Alphabet, or Microsoft fractional shares with Canadian dollars via CIBC's new Canadian Depository Receipts (CDRs).
