Q: Dear 5i,
I own CSU (10%), LMN (2.5%) and SHOP (4%) in my TFSA.Is it a good idea for me to increase LMN to 5% and SHOP to 6% to increase weight in the technical sector? Is it better to start a new position(s) such as KXS, DSG, or TOI? This is a small diversified TFSA, and protecting the portfolio with some growth is the main goal.
Thank you.

Q: The following is from a recent article in the G&M:

"Investors typically regard a cheap stock as one with a PEG ratio around 1. By that standard, many of the Magnificent Seven look to be reasonably priced.

Amazon (a PEG of 1.3), Alphabet (1.3), Meta (1.2) are on the borderline of cheap, while Nvidia (0.7) looks to be a downright bargain, according to calculations this week by Robert Armstrong of the Financial Times.

Microsoft (2.6) and Tesla (2.1) are somewhat pricey by PEG’s reckoning but not outrageous. Only Apple (4.6) looks like a true luxury item, perhaps because it’s perceived as a superbly managed, ultrasafe defensive stock."

What are the PEG ratios of SHOP, CSU, LMN, and TOI?

Thanks as always for your expertise.

Q: Hi, Large Cap Tech stocks in US started the new year with a sharp pull back.
In Canada, Shopify was the one which followed the trend with 6-7% drop. Constellation Software was largely unchanged and Lumine is consolidating from recent sharp gains. We hold all above stocks in our Non-Regd as well as TFSA accounts. There is about $80k TFSA Contribution room available, due to withdrawls made last year. We are considering In-Kind contributions to add to our TFSA holdings when MV of these stocks are lower, in order to limit crystallization of capital gains, as all of these names have large gains embedded, in our taxable account. Is it a reasonable approach ?

If technology sector witnesses some more decline (after very strong returns during 2023), what are the next Technical support levels for these three stocks ?

Thank You

Q: For a growthy TFSA contribution for 2024, I’m considering one of these companies. Please rank based on potential gains for a 3-5 year period, with a brief comment on each one. Moderate to high(ish) risk (like SHOP) is fine with me.

Also, are there any other companies you’d recommend I consider and why.
Thanks for such a great service.

Q: My question from October 10, 2023.
“Everyone, I have held LSPD since the summer of 2019 and I bought and sold throughout the last 24 months. My remaining amount is less than 2% so not a significant amount of $. They have $700 million plus in cash; they call EBITDA positive this year; they reduced the head count which lowers expenses; interest rates will be increased once or twice then a wait period and then a slow decline. All positives for the stock price. And the Quebec Pension still owns a large block of shares - they haven’t given up! The stock price seems to have held at this price range, so there is no real material downside risk. SQ and Toast are in the same stock price position, an industry decline not a stock specific decline. In a better market this stock will quickly do a triple from here.. So … buy and wait … or… move on? Clayton”
This past year LSPD has been in a trading range of $17 ish to $15 ish. Today it has moved above that range with heavy volume. Is it time to buy or wait! If you are waiting, what are you waiting for?

Q: Hi, Shopify rally, this year has been remarkable this year, and stock continues to have a strong momentum, despite recent downgrades from many US brokerages. Canadian analyst community, though, continue to have a more positive bias.

Stock is up almost 200% from its October 2022 lows. Do you think, it's mostly short covering or company has strong fundamentals for the stock to regain its highs of $200, in due course ?

Why, in your view, are so many US analysts, lukewarm on Shopify ?

Thank You
