Q: Hi 5i Team,

I own the above noted stocks as a smaller portion of my portfolio of higher risk names. All of these names are down other than CTS. Do you see any of these names as ones that I should sell as part of a portfolio clean up?

Thanks in advance,

Q: Hi Team,
I hold the following 3 aggressive names in a US cash account (sq, rblx, apps). As a group they are down 65% , in close to equal weighting’s . What do I do with this mess? Hold at this point waiting for recovery ? Consolidate into a different safer name? Any chance for these 3 with a 3-5yr time frame ? Or is it time to take the loss and high grade to something such as a goog ? Or Maybey crox in a different sector ? Or …hope for a aggressive pop at some point , then high grade later ? Your opinion is appreciated .

Q: Hi Team,
This is more of a general question/ observation of todays price action. On a very negative day yet again, across all major index's where it seemed almost everything is down, some of my worst performers which I thought would be down even more yet were actually positive on the day. In specific (RBLX,SHOP,SQ,TOI (almost NVDA...was positive for a while). Anyways, should we read much into this? Is this a sign that some of these beat down names may actually be flirting with bottom? Or is is just wild trading and a one off perhaps? Your thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks

Q: I have recently redeemed some mutual funds that I have held for 20 to 30 years that will produce a significant capital gain for me in 2022. I have several stocks and an ETF that have been purchased in the past few years that are showing losses in the range of $5k to $15k. This includes TOI, U, SOXX, SQ, NVDA, MFI, MSFT, WSP and AMZN. Would you suggest selling these stocks to provide a capital loss that can be applied against my capital gain in 2022? It is my understanding that I will need to wait 30 days to repurchase shares to avoid the denial of the capital loss. If you would suggest selling these stocks and ETF, should I sell now or wait until the end of 2022? And if the stocks and ETF are sold to create a capital loss before the end of 2022, do you see some future in these investments and if so, which stocks would you suggest that I repurchase after 30 days? Thank you for your insights.

Q: Hi Peter,

I am not a big fan of ARKK or Cathie Wood. On a year-to-date basis, ARKK has fallen more than 50%. But I am fascinated with Cathie’s all or nothing investment approach. ARKK invests in disruptive technology firms. Her high risk and high reward investment style reminds me of Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell in the movies Top Gun and Top Gun Maverick. You either reach Mach 10 or crash and burn!

My question for your team relates to ARKK’s top ten holdings: ZM, TSLA, ROKU, CRSP, EXAS, TDOC, PATH, NTLA, SQ, and BEAM. Which of these stocks have fallen sufficiently so that a high-risk investor can safely purchase them for a five-to-ten-year hold? Also, what is your ranking of these ten high tech disruptive companies? Living life in the “danger zone” has its attractions.
