Q: Hi Team,
I continue to hold Nvei with big losses. Would you endorse a switch into HPS.A today? Which stock/ company do you see having more potential say 3-5yrs down the road when comparing the two? Also, do you know the earnings dates for both?

Q: Hi Team,
I was debating if it was time to trim some NVDA after the big gains the stock has had over the past while. Do you have any quality growth names that would you suggest buying with the funds if I do decide to trim at this point? From my end I was thinking of HPS.A...would this be advisable? Or perhaps ISRG. Your opinion would be greatly appreciated.

Q: Good Evening
I am a long time holder of Premium Brands, have always liked its prospects but have grown impatient with the stagnation in stock price. Considering a move to Hammond but wonder if I have missed out on the run up in price. Would you endorse the switch or have another suggestion. When I have made these types of decisions in the past many times patience would have been the best move.
Thank you

Q: Hi,
Kicking myself in the butt for not buying SMCI a few months back after humming and hawing about it. I guess because I have a large NVDA and GOOG position already so didnít want too much AI exposure.

For some of these names that have run hard over the last 3-6 months, would you add or initiate new positions? I own NVDA, HPS.A and TVK and have nice gains but want to slightly add for long term. Iím reluctant now to buy these new daily highs in SMCI and VRT, afraid of a sharp pullback. How would you proceed? For all the stocks mentioned, what inning do you think weíre in for each? Still long runways? And I know itís hard, but what would be good price targets to buy if they pulled back? Thanks!

Q: Hello Peter and 5i team,
My TFSA contains the aforementioned stocks in roughly even percentages except for nominal investments in Park Lawn and DRX. I would like to make my annual contribution to one or some of these companies and would like to know what your order of preference would be for buys/adds at this time. Please also include Celestica in your considerations.
Also, are there any companies in this list that you would consider undervalued at this time?
Thank you.

Q: I am looking to initiate a 2.5% position in one of these two companies, in order to increase the industrial component of my portfolio. Both have received favourable commentary by 5i. Looking at a five-year time horizon, which one would be deemed to be the more prudent position to initiate?

Q: Hi, Would you have any thoughts on how HPS.a stock traded today, touching an all time high of $96.75 at the open and then reverse course to close 5% down from previous day's close, with momentum on the downside, for most part of the day ? This, of course, followed stock price going up almost everyday in a straight line for past couple of months.

Does it indicate a near term term Top in the stock ( at least between now and the results in early March ) ? Also, do you think, it could simply be profit taking after an incredible 300% run over past 12 months, and there has been no adverse or material change, specific to the company and the industry ( demand related to transformers/electrification/grids , competition etc). Noted that company weight was bumped up to 3%, in your model Portfolio, last week, so 5i, likely has strong conviction in Hammond Power and comfort at current levels. Thank You
