Q: Hi, Thanks for your conviction and rock solid positive view on the company helping many of us to remain calm when stock was selling off during last quarter of 2022. In more than many ways, stock price has supported your thesis, latest proof being company's ability to increase their prices by 33%. Do you think that last 3 weeks move and specially Today's 11% move in a day was caused by fundamental reasons like this price increase, Deutsche Bank upgrade and market expectation of strong results ? Or, it's the short sellers caught off guard and running for cover ? We know that 5i increased SHOP position recently in the Balanced Portfolio( and we followed suit ), which proved to be a great tactical move !! Has the recent price action influenced your outlook on the company and its stock, for better or worse ? Thank You.

Q: Hi Team,
Looking to have your thoughts on why Topicus is not participating in the recent tech rally that's been going on...especially yesterday? I know its a odd trader. But is there anything fundamental holding it back? Or do big investors (fund managers and such) avoid it because they are not share issuers? This being you also see this as an opportune to add, with anticipating that TOI shares will eventually "catch up" to the over all tech bounce here? Thanks for your thoughts!

Q: Fidelity recently bought a large position in LSPD. Fundamentally every buy means someone sold. - someone believes and someone does not. What does that mean when a large brokerage house buys a large position. Is the buy for position to sell after an initial gain? A long position, to keep forever like the Quebec pension fund? Is this because it is oversold? This question can be in relation to any company. Clayton
