Q: Hi,

Can you compare and contrast AT vs WISH? I realize WISH would be considered much riskier due to market cap and and even length of time being a public company.

But I am interested to know if one has a competitive advantage over the other, are expected growth rates for next several years are substantially different between the two.

Would it be too much overlap to have small positions in both companies?

thank you for all you do,

Q: Hello Peter,
I have GDI in my TFSA account and have done well so far.
Thank you.
However, I feel there is not much growth in the future and am considering replacing it with either EGLX or AT. The hesitancy stems due to the old adage - don't fix if it ain't broken. From a reward perspective, is the increase in risk justified ? I would appreciate your selection amongst the three for the TFSA. Subsequently , a preference amongst the remaining two for a margin account.
Do you consider GDI a growthy stock with a dividend yield?

Q: Hi Awesome 5i team, I have some cash to invest, in Canada, I am thinking of "AT", "GSY" &"CTS", some of these names are at all time high, could you please rank them from risk/growth perspective. Given recent volatility of the market, could you please provide a good entry point if you will.

For US, please also provide three names that are growth oriented, and three reflationary driven. All are for long term investment.

Q: Hi,
Currently both small weightings now in my portfolio because of the decline in stock price. Which do you think has higher growth potential long term? 3-5+ yrs. Looking to reduce XBC and pick up more AT. Or would you hold both equally between a 1-2% weight? I see you just added AT so I'm assuming you have more confidence in this name?
