Q: My accrued gains from the last few years on these tech stocks are evaporating. I'm thinking of selling the works and buying an energy ETF like IXC. Does this trade make sense?

Q: First time poster here.
With the slight decline recently, which of these following companies do you guys like the most for a growth portfolio for the next 5-10 years? I have 150K to invest (consider this fun spending money and money to play with), and I want to know how much of the 150K would you guys invest in each of these companies separately? ie. 35k in CSU etc
(side note), the report card for TOI said it was valued at 10 billion when it was $60/share. But now it's $131/share and everywhere I read it says 5 billion market cap. Was this a typ-o?). Thanks!

Q: My hold the following Canadian tech stocks: CSU, KXS, LSPD, ENGH, SHOP, and TOI. Based on your continued support of NVEI and DSG, I would like to add them as well. However, I would like to ensure diversification and so wish to avoid companies that are similar to those which I already own. So my question is, would owning these 8 companies provide me with a diverse mix of Canadian tech stocks?

Q: Greetings 5i,

The company's listed are TFSA holdings. The goal of the TFSA is moderately aggressive growth. Time frame is 4-8 years. Equities are purchased in equal weights and rebalanced based on weighting.

SLF and BNS are also held in other accounts, at an overall portfolio percent of ~5-6%. Which would you recommend adding to at this time? What do you consider the weakest from this list? Would you consider removing any from the TFSA holding only in either a non reg or reg account? If so, why? And which one, two or three additional growth oriented companies, either CAD or USD would you recommend.

Take as many credits as required.

Thank you for the excellent service.

Q: Hi 5i team,

Currently I own in my TFSA the following stocks: CSU, DSG, KXS, OTEX, PHO, REAL, SIS, WELL, XBC, NVDA,VALE and PDYPF (Thanks to SHOP my TFSA grew considerably)
I would like to keep in TFSA only high growth stocks. After reading some of your answers it seems that CRWD and U are good candidates to add.
Please advise which stocks should I sell or move to my cash account to make room for mentioned stocks.

Becoming a 5i member was the best decision ever, thank you for you guidance and amazing service. Reading the Q&A became my daily morning ritual while drinking my coffee.
To all the team Happy Holidays.
