Q: Magma has been falling over the last year and your comments have not been positive recently. Wondering if you would suggest switching to LNR. Is there other names in manufacturing you like?

Q: I don't have too many names I want to sell, but lots of names I'd like to buy....

One move I would consider would be to sell CTS to invest in either TMX or ATS. My question is besides the different sectors, long-term which company has the most potential to outperform the others? I'm guessing in order of growth potential it would go CTS, ATS, TMX, with the risk profiles the exact opposite?

Do you see enough potential in CTS to hold it over the other two names? Thanks in advance. - Jeff

Q: Help me!
My wife and I have a competition running in our TFSA accounts, which we started a few years back with the same cash balance. She is using the classic passive ETF strategy, except we got pissed off with bonds and moved that portion into QQQ/ICLN (TDB900, 902, 911 & QQQ, ICLN)
I am actively (quite low turnover) trading CDN and US stocks and ETF's
She is handing me my ass!

My current holdings in the CDN account are ATS, BAM, BN, GSY, KXS, XIT, PBH, WELL, WSP and US account AAPL, TFII, VEEV

Ignoring sector allocations (which i still need to look into), please advise any Buy, Hold or Sell recommendations for my current holdings with a 5 year horizon

Q: Good day,

Did a huge portfolio makeover a few months ago, almost entirely with your picks (minus a few that didn't click for me) and some of my high own high conviction names. For the most part, they've all done pretty well, with the exception of the last few weeks.

1. Is the last few weeks just overall uncertainty/retraction?
2. bep and bip are down ~15%, is it worthwhile getting out and averaging down BAM or BNS?
3. ATS and CELH are down after large runups after I bought. worth buying/averaging down on one of these?
4. DCBO and NXT back to scratch after huge runs. Do you expect those levels to return? Timeline wise? NXT spun from FLEX, but Flex continues to climb
5. KXS is down 8%, and seems pretty spikey over the last 5 years. Just wait for the next one? Should this start to create more of a steadier trend upward?
6. I bought POWL, and it's basically done nothing, thoughts on the company now? alternatives?
7. I saw a youtuber vid that really loved POET for the coming months years. I was telling a friend about it yesterday because I like (and understand) the technology and what it could do. He literally bought some while we were talking yesterday morning and he's up 30%... Are the company fundamentals/contracts improving? or could it just be hype from youtubers and the like?

Almost all of these had some pretty significant periods of running since I rebalanced in Jan/Feb. I know market timing is not a solid practice, but in a lot of these growth names, at what point is that jump worth moving on from, freeing up some cash for another opportunity down the road? And how do you determine whether it's time or not?

Finally, in the event that your attitudes have changed on any of these, do you have a top 3 CAD, top 3 US new ideas over the last few months that have really turned the tide/become strong buys that I may replace/add?

Thanks for everything!

Q: Greetings 5i Team,
In what order would you introduce these companies to a TFSA? I am looking for growth with an eye on risk.
Is there any among these that you would prefer not to add at this time?

Thank you

Q: AMD is a stock that you like but it seems to be underperforming (down 20% in the last month) a lot of the stocks in the same business.

I cannot remember the last time that ATS had a green day. It is down 28% in the last three months. It seems to me no one wants it, but I have been holding it on your advice because the majority of the time your advice is successful. I m keeping my fingers crossed. Thank you.

Q: Greetings 5i, which one of these 3 companies would be your top choice today for a new position in a TFSA? Growth over 5 years is primary objective. Thanks.

Q: A number of these companies have done very well recently while others have not. Could you rate these as Buy/Hold/Sell and for those you consider a buy, could you provide what you feel is a good entry point.

Thank you
