Q: There are a number of Canadian based NASDAQ100 and S&P500 ETF's. Which NASDAQ100 and S&P500 ETF would you prefer, or would be "best", for a TFSA account, and why? Would investing within an RRSP or in a non-registered account alter your selections and if so, why would that be? Thanks.

Q: Making a large spousal RRSP contribution soon and am looking for guidance as to the best 3 or 4 stocks with a tilt toward growth that would compliment this group with a brief explanation as to thier merits and why they compliment the existing holdings. Initially had my sights set on DOL, ATS, CNR and IFC but not sure these would be the right choice to maximize compounding for someone with a very long investment horizon.

Wife’s portfolios currently include: ITOT, IEMG, XEF, AVGO, COST, SBUX, RY, FTS, BCE, ATD, DIR.UN, SHOP, GSY, BN, TOI, ATZ, NVEI
Most Mag 7 are owned in my own accounts with adequate exposure when considering combined portfolios so not looking for any of those.

Q: A family member entering post-secondary school owns these stocks in their TFSA on an approximate equal weighting of $4,000. They have $8,000 to contribute and invest this fiscal.

The objective is growth with some risk; maintenance of capital is a secondary objective.

If allocating in $4,000 increments would you add to one or more of the existing investments or are there one or two you think would be better suited to a young investor over a 3 - 5 year investment horizon?

Thanks so much.

Q: Hello 5i,

If you were to start a 15,000 USD TFSA which 3 funds would you start with?

Thank you

Q: Hello 5i

My TFSA needs some torque - can you recommend three US growth stocks and three Canadian growth stocks that you find compelling to buy today for a 3-5 year hold?

They do not need to be sector or risk specific.

Thanks so much - very appreciated!

Q: Re: Jean's question about moving loose cash (presumably a smallish amount) out of the TFSA before year's end.
It makes sense to me if in 2024 I intend to make a contribution in-kind from my non-registered account. That extra bit of contribution room will enable me to transfer a greater quantity of stock to my TFSA, thereby putting that loose cash to good use.
