Q: Above our securities of about 45 I hold that for quite some time are terrible to look at. Which ones should I sell and replace with your picks that are doing quite well and would you sell them at the price they are now or would you pick a higher price and put them in for a few days? Thanks again

Q: Big bounce today on no news! (?) I've owned this since joining 5i. It has gone in and out of market favour but I've always enjoyed the dividend. I've been picking up dividend stocks for the last year and done well but I am not expecting a lot of growth from them from here. SYZ should get some decent growth and the yield is healthy. I like the SaaS field and this being tied to government work - which seems a way to get some beta away from the market business cycle. Does it really fit this bill? Yield makes me patient how do you see it over all?

Q: Two part question. 1) What do you make of the company holding their conference call to discuss the (very poor) quarterly results FIVE days after releasing their results? You would think that management would want to get in front of these bad numbers and try to minimize the damage. 2) This company has transitioned into a turn around story with declining sales. Is this not an indication to sell?

Q: I'm really overweight in IT. Close to 35% but I need to get down to 20% or less. IT holdings are: KXS (3.1%); SHOP (16.9%); CSU (5.2%); TOI (0.4%); DND (0.2%); LSPD (2.0%); SYZ (1.4%); PHO (1.0%); CRWD (2%); NVDA (0.7%); DOCU (1.5%).

Not sure if it makes a difference but all are in TFSA except KXS, CRWD and DOCU (cash/margin account). Due to the fact that I'm working I don't want to trigger any taxable gains if possible. Obviously I need to trim SHOP by at least 1/2.

SYZ seems to be a laggard since it has only appreciated 45% in almost 7 years so I think I should sell that. Do you agree? (assuming a balanced portfolio).

Aren't DND and PHO going to be purchased?

I'm emotionally attached to the high gains otherwise... What's your suggestion on how to bring down my IT holdings in a tax efficient way?

Q: Just opening the management circular dated may 3rd. The board members are mostly fairly new. the proposed options smorgasbord looks very appetizing for insiders. Also the insiders stakes are not generally high. No wonder since they cash their options a,s,a,p,. For such a small company the executives compensations are rich. The release coincide with the start of the marked decline in stock price.
The performance over 10 years has been outstanding and the yield today is attractive, What do you think of the newer board? do you see better opportunities for growth?
Thank you.
