Investment Q&A

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

Q: Hi team,

In your replies to questions you sometimes refer to "sleep at night stocks". Those above were so qualified, among others.
I would very much appreciate if you could provide a good list of such stocks at this point, both Canadian and U.S., in order of potential growth in 5 years or less, with a short comment summarizing your present view on each.

Please use as many credits as you see fit.

Q: Good afternoon all;

I currently own LMN and KXS in equal sized positions in TFSA's. I consider these my higher growth oriented emerging technology investments. I've held LMN since $30 and traded in and out of KXS between $100 and $200 since 2019.

My question is whether future investment gains would be better served trading out of KXS (which has performed historically but become frustrating and seems a laggard recently) and into Topicus (which seems a bit opaque).

Thanks as always,

Q: In watching BNN the other night, in talking about Constellation Software, Brian Madden mentioned that his fund has recently bought into what they view as a US based equivalent company. Unfortunately, much to my disappointment, he didn't mention who the company was. This did get me to wondering what (if any), US based companies you would recommend that are Constellation Software like and would he have perhaps have been referring to LMN?
Thank you again for the fabulous service!

Q: Hello 5i Team,
I hold these companies between two TFSAs and have room for two more, small cap, Canadian growth companies. What might you suggest. Sector consideration not an issue although I do recognize the importance of diversification.
Thank you

Q: Everyone, I have been watching the above growth stocks since late last year. I usually have one or two high growth quality stocks that will add to the average returns of my portfolio. My last purchase of a high growth stock was LMN, which I purchased last September, with an average price of $20.50. The ones I am watching now have risen significantly and I am hesitant to buy into them since they might decline 50%. So should I buy a small portion of each to maybe a 10% holding of my overall portfolio? Or should I wait till……..
