Q: Hi Peter and Team
Looking for guidance on US holdings in a non registered account. My feeling from following your questions is that the US market would likely do well next year or 2 and that I should not invest 100% in Canada. Can you list 5 US securities that you see as good growth for next 2-3 years holding ?
Thanks for excellent guidance
Peter

Q: I am looking to offset some capital gains received this year from PEO and PHO (thanks!). Currently I have the following holdings in a loss position, in order of dollars down: TDOC, TV, XBC, HAL, XEG, NFI, SQ, TECK.B, XTC, WELL, ENGH, PLTR. I would need to sell the first six to fully offset the gain, or could sell more if using those in a smaller loss position. How would you rank these holdings in order of selling, and which of these would you look to buy back after 30 days (if any)? Note that these are held within a broad portfolio that I am also looking to consolidate.

Q: I have room for 1 full position in my US RRSP. I do not have exposure to US financials and was looking for your opinion for a relatively diversified US financial with the best prospects for CAGR over the next 3 to 5 years. I came up with Paypal, Square, MS, and JPM. I feel that Paypal (with it recent sell off) is the best option. What is your opinion?

Q: This a follow-up to our TFSA question dated August 24, 2021, and specifically relates to the 5i suggested list of 10 US stocks.

Of the 10, we have so far initiated positions in GRMN, LULU and REGN.

As we already have a substantial position in V (and MA), please suggest an alternative, perhaps in payment services, such SQ, AFRM or PYPL. Also, please suggest an entry point.

For the remainder, NVDA, DG, GOOG, JPM, CRWD and APPS, please rank them in terms of conviction and for each, suggest an entry point.

As always, thanks for the great advice!

Q: Hi Peter and staff,
Thanks for the great information that you guys provide.
These are the holdings in my wife's TFSA account. I have owned CNR since March of 2020 and have done quite well but I'm wondering if this stock has reached the top of the price range and it's time to move on. The average Price Target is $165. Do you think that CNR still has upside or can you name two stocks to replace it.

Thanks and have a great day
Joe

Q: Not sure of the rationale for PayPal buying PINS. A $45 billion price tag seems like a lot considering they could of done a partnership instead. A merger that lacks strategic vision is a great way to destroy shareholder value…just ask Time Warner/AOL. Although it is preliminary what are your thoughts? As a long term PayPal shareholder should I sell and buy Square to hold for the next five years? There are no tax or risk considerations just a straight swap to change horses.

Q: My 28 yo son has $6k USD to invest in his RSP. I have considered many good companies, and whittled it down to 4 choices. I could not find a site to learn the ROIC on these companies. Could 5i provide please? Could 5i rank these 4 based on their growth potential? No requirement to comment on sector allocation within portfolio as that is in hand. Thanks in advance.

Q: Good morning,

I currently have AXP, V, MA and PYPL in my portfolio. I’m wondering if I should sell something to reduce redundancy and if so, in which order, given the outlook for growth?

Also in the same sector, I have on my watchlist AFRM, NVEI and SQ, all of which seem to have a long runway ahead. Should I add one or more of these new names either by selling from the first group or just as an add?

I’m new to this forum and I’m very appreciative of your insights. Thank you in advance!
