Q: I always kick myself when I come to realize a missed opportunity and tell myself that next time, i'll recognize the trend and take advantage of it.

This is me asking that question now.

What 5 US and 5 CDN positions, in your opinion are very much out of favour right now but have quality fundamentals with an excellent chance for share appreciation over the next 3 years?

Q: Hi Team,
Which of these names do you see doing best from current levels 5 yrs from now? Sq, LMN, WELL, or SHOP. I am currently holding a few shares of sq and am considering selling out for a 18% loss and putting the funds to one of the other names mentioned. Whats your thoughts ? Or should I just continue to wait for a recovery in Sq? Or if you have any other “must buy” names today that are better than all the ones mentioned I would like to hear those ideas too. The holding is inside a tfsa. Thanks for your advice !

Q: Hi All at 5i! I own both of these stocks and now having broken even I would like to sell them. Do you think they have strong potential growth?? If so I may reconsider. If not, could you suggest some good solid US alternatives … not necessarily proxies.
Thank you,

Q: I understand that you are keen on NVEI as a longterm growth story… could you please explain a bit more about where they fit into the fintech space - eg direct competitors, maybe comparative businesses? Thank you.

Q: Hi, I have a 2.5% position in SCHW (down 25%) and am looking to sell while keeping exposure to the financial sector.

MKTX and CME score highly on my evaluations and others listed are pretty decent too. Curious on your thoughts on a suitable, safe replacement.

This is in my LIRA and I'm looking to hold for 10+ years (was also the case for SCHW, but I'm concerned wrt their exposure from their long term bonds).

If they are sells, what would be your most promising names to buy today? Some I were looking at were Ats, Crox , Bn. Thanks .

Q: With all the volatility we are seeing, I am looking at trading a few stocks so I would like a few suggestions from you. These should be names I wouldn't have a problem holding if the trades don't work out. Both US and Canada. Thank you in advance.

Q: Hi 5i Team,

I’m down on all the above stocks as follows CRWD Down 36%, ETSY down 40%, PINS down 52%, PYPL down 64%, SQ down 72% and U down 77%.

With a 2 to 3 year horizon which of these are worth holding and which once I should sell and can you suggest US replacements and not necessarily in the same asset class. Just good stable companies that have good growth potential to outperform the indexes.

Take as many credits as you feel necessary.
