Q: Thank you for your recent tax loss opportunities list. I have been interested in Well for some time and am considering for just such an opportunity. I have also been looking closely at cloudMD. It looks like Well is forecasted to become profitable before cloudMD but the latter remains a compelling opportunity having dropped in price further with an excellent balance sheet and forecast earnings. Which security do you prefer and why

Q: I have historically held my investments in mutual funds through a financial advisor. I subscribed to 5i Research approximately 3 years ago and made my first investments in equities and an ETF based primarily upon information obtained from 5i Research. The returns on VGRO ETF and my equities have been 2 to 4 times the gain for my mutual funds. I recently upgraded my subscription to include Portfolio Analytics. Based upon portfolio analytics, my current portfolio is reasonably well balanced with recommendations to add healthcare and industrials as well as some international exposure. I have cash on hand that I want to invest. I will hold my investments for the next 5 to 10 years. I am looking at purchasing some additional equities and an ETF with good growth potential at moderate risk. Please provide top 10 recommendations with rankings for stocks that I should consider adding to my portfolio. Please provide recommendations for top 5 ETFs with rankings that I should consider adding to my portfolio. What is your current view on VGRO? Would you suggest topping up my investment in VGRO?

Q: I'm looking ahead to January's TFSA contribution. Portfolio analysis indicates that my biggest sector shortfall is in healthcare. My only healthcare exposure is as part of my XAW (18% of my overall portfolio) and VGRO (44%), so I'm looking at AND, CARE, and WELL as candidates for the TFSA. What's your take on whether to put the contribution to one, some or all of these, or something else? Age 72 but my RRIF minimums (plus CPP/OAS) are sufficient for living expenses, don't expect to have to touch TFSA for 6+ years.
Thanks.

Q: Where do you see Stryker and Becton Dickinson going forward with the Delta and now Omnicon which is way more transmissible?

If hospitalisation increases with Omnicon and surgeries are held back again, will this affect both companies and will this cause these 2 stocks to plunge?

thank you

Q: Good afternoon,
I was up 30% on WELL but I am now down 20%. I know you are positive on the stock over the next few years. I do not need to sell it but I'm thinking of (1) selling it for tax loss purposes and buying it back after 30 days, or (2) buying more now to average down, Alternatively, (3) I could sell the shares for tax loss purposes and buy the new convertible debentures which pay 5.5% and are convertible at a share price of $9.23. Al things being equal which looks like the best approach over the next 3 years? if it is to buy the debentures what is the ticker symbol for them? Thanks.

Q: hello 5i Research team,
I understand that the entire sector has been weak for some time. WELL is currently at its 52 week low. Based on technical analysis, what is the next support level? Could you compare WELL stock performance with a basket of North American competitors (name the list of the companies in your basket) since March 1st 2021 when WELL was at 9$ and comment. What could be catalysts for the sector? Have you seen some signs of consolidation in the sector?
Thank you for your collaboration, Eric
