Q: Good day,

Did a huge portfolio makeover a few months ago, almost entirely with your picks (minus a few that didn't click for me) and some of my high own high conviction names. For the most part, they've all done pretty well, with the exception of the last few weeks.

1. Is the last few weeks just overall uncertainty/retraction?
2. bep and bip are down ~15%, is it worthwhile getting out and averaging down BAM or BNS?
3. ATS and CELH are down after large runups after I bought. worth buying/averaging down on one of these?
4. DCBO and NXT back to scratch after huge runs. Do you expect those levels to return? Timeline wise? NXT spun from FLEX, but Flex continues to climb
5. KXS is down 8%, and seems pretty spikey over the last 5 years. Just wait for the next one? Should this start to create more of a steadier trend upward?
6. I bought POWL, and it's basically done nothing, thoughts on the company now? alternatives?
7. I saw a youtuber vid that really loved POET for the coming months years. I was telling a friend about it yesterday because I like (and understand) the technology and what it could do. He literally bought some while we were talking yesterday morning and he's up 30%... Are the company fundamentals/contracts improving? or could it just be hype from youtubers and the like?

Almost all of these had some pretty significant periods of running since I rebalanced in Jan/Feb. I know market timing is not a solid practice, but in a lot of these growth names, at what point is that jump worth moving on from, freeing up some cash for another opportunity down the road? And how do you determine whether it's time or not?

Finally, in the event that your attitudes have changed on any of these, do you have a top 3 CAD, top 3 US new ideas over the last few months that have really turned the tide/become strong buys that I may replace/add?

Thanks for everything!

Q: What is your current view on this small company? I realize its small size and the current market conditions will limit investor interest but wonder if some of the recent news and fundamentals provides any encouragement for a better future (3+ years) stock appreciation? Also given its volatility could you comment on if this is better held in a TFSA or regular account where losses, if any could be utilized?

Q: Hello,
What are your current 'best ideas' in the micro to small cap space, 5 in Canada and 5 in the US for a 5 year hold that have a market cap of at or below $1 billion market cap, are founder-led, have high insider ownership and high forecasted annual revenue growth (greater than 20%/yr)? Thank you.

Q: Looking through your responses on this company I do not see any reference to what appears to be POETs claim to fame - that is offers a unique integration of optical technology and existing chip production, nor any reference to a fairly long established participation, I assume in this technology. I like belt and braces; if the technology is valid and timely, which I assume it is given the focus of robotics today, and they have a moat by way of patents or other mechanisms, their prospects should be excellent, albeit absent revenues in the short term. Can you clarify these issues for me please.
