Investment Q&A

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

Q: I know 5i doesnít cover stocks outside of North America so please feel free to disregard my question if you canít provide an answer. I currently have no direct exposure to Asia. Could you please rank Baba, JD and SE in a locked in RSP, 10+ horizon. I have space for one and since Iím happy with current valuations with the ongoing uncertainty, I would be ready to choose one. And could you please also comment on what would happen to the investment if it ever was delisted in terms of the access to the funds. Thank you!

Q: This stock has dropped 35% since the beginning of 2021. Could you please comment on it's profitability, if it has overcome some or most of its production problems and whether the current crackdown on Chinese firms listed overseas will cause a big drop in the share price. Would you hold onto the company under these circumstances?
Many thanks for your great advice.

Q: I have done very well with each of these stocks. The news from China is a concern. I know you are not experts in Chinese stocks, but I would like to hear your opinion on whether to sell or hold.

Q: I figured if this name was safe enough for Charlie Munger and Mohinsh Pabrai, that it would be safe enough for me. However, I always get week knees when I start to lose money. My guess is that China will not want to kill a golden goose like Baba and Im therefore hoping to look past the noise about CCP regulation which seems to be driving down the price of Chinese stocks indiscriminately. I know you do not closely follow overseas stocks but do you suggest I hold this name or move on to North American names which do not face the same regulatory dangers. Iím only down $7 at the moment. Thank you.

Q: Hello 5i team,

Reading your response to one of our 5i members' question about "POAHY" which is listed in US ADR market, you mentioned ADRs can have more risks itself. Could you please elaborate more about the risks associated with ADRs.

Q: POAHY:US is the symbol in NY for Porsche Auto in Germany (itís an unsponsored ADR and is not in your data base) . This business is held in the EWG (Germany) ETF. In addition to holding a modest amount in EWG, I also have a tiny position in POAHY. I thought of topping up after reading some near-rave reviews in Barrons on July 6, 2021. Barrons also listed it as a PICK in its "Picks and Pans" on 6 July. I would appreciate very much if you would please care to comment on Porsche Auto Company.

POAHY pays a healthy dividend (4.85%). More troubling than the high dividend is that it does appear to be seriously under-valued. Is it a value trap, you think? And do UNSPONSORED ADRs carry more risk? Thank you.
