Q: I am underwhelmed with my health sector holdings - ABBV and IHI - both of which have been recently underperforming the market. I have held each for several years in a cash account and they are up 20% and 50%, respectively. I would appreciate your go forward recommendation on both, balancing future prospects, tax consequences and alternative (i.e. faster growing) investments in this sector. Hold or sell? And if sell, replace with what? Thank you.

Q: Hello 5i,

When I look at a chart of WELL, I see that its momentum is not horrible but not good either. When I read 5i's responses to members, I see that his opinion is rather favorable about this company. My question is: If 5i had never had a position in WELL, would he consider initiating one now or would he wait until the momentum has improved?

Thank you

Q: Morning 5i,
I haven't been able to find DHT.UN results for its quarterly earnings which I think were released on May 6. Perhaps I just don't know where to look. In any event could you please provide your analysis of the results along with any general or specific commentary you might have about the name. I've done well by it and would like to continue holding unless something material has fundamentally changed, or looks like it might.

Q: Good morning;

I own the 4 stocks referenced at a 4.5% weight in my portfolio. ILMN was purchased as a turnaround candidate so I wish to keep it. XLV to hedge. UNH I have my initial investment out; it has bounced around quite a bit lately with no clear path but a target +/$75 above current price. May 1st you commented CVS is not one you would add to and it could be a value trap. I've owned it since prior to COVID and missed my opportunity to sell it off.

I want to stay exposed and grow my exposure a bit to the US (and maybe Canadian) health care sector. Other than a very occasional flare of positive results this sector has not been very beneficial to my portfolio other than a bit of modest income. I could part with (in order) CVS, UNH, XLV to build better growth exposure. I would appreciate your top 5 recommended options along with why you would put them on the list.

Thanks very much.
