Q: I bought GSY at its peak. Is it time to dollar cost average now or would you wait for the price to drop more?

How do you see the stock price move if interest rates stay stable until mid 2024?

Would you recommend different stocks which pay 3-5% dividend with room to grow 50% over the next 12 - 18 months,?

Q: I just visited your subscription website. 5i rightfully touts the outstanding returns on these BEST PERFORMERS since inception.

I have benefited immensely from those picks BUT bailed at the wrong time and now only hold GSY.

Would you still recommend Csu,byd and syz at current prices or are there new potential multi baggers that you prefer

Thanks for your help…. and looking forward to seeing share prices increase and have the patience and wisdom…and courage to hold on ……

Q: I became an EQB customer just to experience their service and I am very impressed how the whole process works without any human involvement (this means big cost savings on their part) and the unmatched benefits of keeping your cash savings there over the legacy banks. If this is the future, the big banks have a problem of large workforce and the real estate footprint to be maintained. From my point of view it is easier to enter the market from EQB starting point than from the big banks position to slim down. However there is a limit to which EQB can grow that way. Would you be able to asses this limit in terms of EQB market cap?
There are/were smaller/regional banks that entered Canadian banking in the past. How would you rate EQB in this group?

Q: Hi 5i,
I've just started following EQB with an eye to getting in.
In the past week all 5 major banks are nicely up (even CM!) as is NA.
Conversely, EQB has had a sharp drop followed by a bit of a bounce, but is down overall.
I realize a week is not long and typically not a period of time from which to draw conclusions. However, the opposite direction of WQB's trajectory to other banks has me confused.
Can you explain why its trajectory over the past week would be so markedly different from other, bigger, names in the sector. Is it a sign of some fundamental weakness that isn't well publicized, is it just one of those short term things that defy explanation, is it due to a difference in its business model that is seen as a weakness, is it size related and is it typical for it to go in the opposite direction than most other names in the sector?
I'd sure like to have better insight into EQB, given its behaviour over the past brief while.
Thanks 5i,

Q: I notice right now you like EQB oven GSY even though EQB has gone up a lot in the last little while. I could have bought EQB at, I believe at$48 (Nov. 2022) not that long ago - seems very expensive now while, based on my research GSY has a lot more room to run. I know the man that started EQB way back when - he still has his shares - lucky dog. In any case, your comments please as I was going to add at some point to my GSY - only have 500 shs.

Q: Hello 5i team,

I sold "CAE" and made some money to find next growth name. Could you please suggest one? I already have "STN" and "CP" in my portfolio for your information. Your suggestion doesn’t have to be in the same sector though, I am looking for the best rewarding one as of today for 3-5 years holding. Thanks.
