Q: Hi 5i Team - Could you provide an update on the fundamentals of Questor including cash reserves, level of debt, earnings etc. With this in mind, is it strong enough to weather a continued market slump in growth stocks. Does it have the potential for growth. Also can you provide your opinion on management, its background experience and its holdings of common shares. Has there been any significant insider trading lately. If I decide to finally move on from this stock do you have any suggestions for a replacement growth stock, not necessarily in the same sector.

Q: I know you rate this stock as an A and according to your report, think quite highly of it.

Well I've held this stock for 4 years and it is at the same level today as it was Jan 2019. It's down approx 40% since Jan 22.

Basically dead money. Other than the 2% dividend, I could have done as well in a 5 year GIC.

Is it time to throw in the towel. I believe I am a patient investor, but like you patience does run out.

If your answer is yes what is your top TSX listed NON TECH suggestion to replace it.

If your answer is no, why?

Q: Thoughts on these quarterly results? Do you still like the long term prospects of these three growth companies?

In general, what are your thoughts on holding growthier names in this current market? It just seems that the risk of holding these positions through earnings outweighs the benefits. For example, if a company meets expectations and maintains guidance, the stock barely moves. However, any miss or lower guidance and the stock easily gets crushed 30-50%, such as NFLX, FB, UPST, RBLX, COIN, etc... Seems a lot of companies are issuing lower guidance because of all the uncertainties. Wouldn't it be better or more prudent to just sell or maybe trim the positions to reflect these risks and re-enter later?

Other growth names I have on deck soon are GSY, WELL, AT, EGLX, LSPD, NVDA, APPS, and CRWD and I'm worried about how investors will react to earnings. Thanks!

Q: Comprised of the above Canadian companies, our TFSA represents a small portion of our overall portfolio and is its most growth oriented component. All investments are made with the intent to be long-term holds (10+ years).

Two of the holdings, AT and LSPD are down over 50%, while FSV, GSY, NVEI and WELL are all down by about a third. We intend to do some rebalancing. How would you rate (1-10) these 6 for additional money today? Please include a brief explanation for the ratings.

Finally, if you could add one more Canadian company to the mix, what would it be?

Q: Hi Peter and team, I don't hold any of the above stocks and they have done very well the last 2 years. I do own some of your favorites like BAM, TOI, CUS, SHOP and LSPD etc. How would you rank the above stocks and would they be good buy when the dust finally settles.

Q: If you had a well balanced portfolio and were looking to add some medium to small sized companies that were involved in industrial activity of various types, how would you feel about each of these companies on a scale of 1 to 10, with a 10 being a stock you definitely want to add right now, a 1 being a stock you have absolutely no interest in, and a 5 being a stock you thought was not bad, but not good enough to want to buy it. Say you have a risk tolerance of about a 7, with 10 being high and 1 being low. Looking for long term total return. ANRG, DIR.UN, FTT, GDI, HDI, ITP, NOA, XTC.
