Investment Q&A

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

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: 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

Q: Good Morning,

I hold KXS in my TFSA. My goal is to maximize growth in the account. Would you endorse a switch to one of the above names. Which would be your current two favourites in the group?

Q: I struggle with ATS and KXS whether to sell or continue to see drifting lower. I know you suggest selling if something fundamental has changed for the worse. People commonly thinking ATS is a growth name, but their backlog is shrinking, still a growth name? Fundamental changed? KXS's growth is declining as well....when it will resume their growth? If sell them, what to buy to replace? Can I have your thoughts? Thanks.

Q: I know that you still like KXS, and you also like XIT. I manage my son’s TFSA, and he’s made a tidy profit in KXS, since it’s been held for quite a while. However, going forward, and since more recent charts indicate XIT's outperforformance, what would be your assessment of switching from KXS to XIT?

He doesn’t have enough room to buy CSU or SHOP, and I see that they’re the first two holdings in XIT, and would you agree that these two names are ‘better’ than KXS? As well, XIT holds a small amount of KXS.

Finally, he can buy and sell XIT with zero commission.

Your pertinent advice is, as always, important in our decision making.

Q: Good morning. I hold the above stocks in my TFSA. Together they now account for approx. 6% of my TFSA. I am thinking I'd like to consolidate them into one or possibly two positions. Which would you choose to keep if you went that route. Alternatively can you suggest one or two Canadian and one or two American growth stocks to take their place. I already hold full positions of CSU, LMN, TOI, NVDA, and SHOP. Thanks for your advice, Rod

Q: Can you please provide your thoughts on the stocks listed for a RESP that will start to draw down in 4 years? In addition to these positions the portfolio has a good core position in CDN, US and INTL large cap ETFs. Any that you would get rid of now? If so, please provide alternatives (both Cdn and US).

Q: Good Morning
I have done well with Kinaxis but have become impatient with the returns over the last couple of years. Can you recommend an alternative? I am considering swapping out for TVK and HPS.A.
thank you

Q: I am considering starting new positions or adding to existing positions in a number of these companies. In What order would you purchase these companies, from first to last? Is there any of these companies you would not currently buy? Looking at 3 to 5 year timeline..

Apologies for number of companies!! Please deduct appropriately.

Q: KXS shares are basically flat over that past four years. Yet the company continues to grow nicely quarter after quarter and the balance sheet is strong. So the fundamentals look really good. This would imply major valuation compression. Can you please comment on the valuation four years ago compared to today? How does the current valuation compare to their industry and software sector?
