Q: Hello 5i, a report from RBC came out this morning with their ''need to have'' tech companies. Their Outperform ratings were on COUR, DBX, DCT, DOCU, JCOM, PEGA, TWLO and PEGA. Are you familiar with those companies and could you please mention your (2) favourites of the list and why? I own DOCU and TWLO already. If your preference is the same, it'll be a relief. If they aren't, I would open a new position since I have room for another one in terms of my allocation. Much appreciated, thank you.

Q: Friday messy fun question, please take it lightly. I would like to start reducing the oil companies I bought in April last year. They've done incredibly well, but now I would like to increase my tech growth stocks by opening 1 or 2 new positions. I currently own GOOG, DND, U, CRWD, RDFN, ROKU, VEEV, PINS, and SQ. They have done well under your recommendations even with the recent pullbacks. As no one can time the markets, I am not willing to wait for a surprise interest hike as it is part of a locked-in RSP. It would be a 10+ hold. 1) Without considering size, could you please rank your favourite top 5 companies addressed in this question as of today in terms of strong balance sheet & steady growth potential over time (even in an interest hike environment). 2) Could you please give a brief explanation for the #1 pick only. Thank you very much as always!

Q: One of the largest tech crashes .com bubble in the Nortel days took years for these companies that survived to get back to where they were. The same thing is happening today probably on a smaller scale. Would it not be better to get out of these and into something else or into cash as they just fall day in and day out? Or, do you think by the end of the summer will they have bottomed out and have some encouraging results? Waiting for your guidance. Thank you.

Q: I have similar weightings of MDB, DOCU, PAYC, CRWD, GH, NET, and TWLO in my US RRSP account. As per the recent report recommendation from 5i, I would like to rotate some of my lesser quality stocks into strong value stocks or ETFs. Can you suggest 2 of 3 of the above that you would recommend I reduce or sell out and what strong value plays would make sense to backfill them with? Am I interpreting the guidance of the report correctly? Thanks!!

Q: Hi 5i,
In reviewing my asset allocations, I am underweight in US and International. I am also light on Healthcare, Industrials, and Technology. Are there any companies (top 5) that jump out at you as growth based names that could help with this in terms of a 'two-birds-one-stone' approach?
I have a 10+ year timeline and a high risk tolerance.
Thanks in advance!

Q: HI 5i Team. I really appreciate your comments that speak to opportunities/areas or perhaps "themes" where you currently see good growth opportunities now and in the coming years. Some commentators have pointed to themes such as EV and materials that support EV, clean tech generally, changes in healthcare, etc. What would you consider to be some of the better investing themes right now (say 3 or 4?) and what would some of your suggestions right now for some good Canadian and good US stock selections within each, with growth in mind over a roughly 5 year horizon in a TFSA. I already have positions in LSPD, WELL, XBC and QST, and I plan to acquire AZT next. So I would be interested in hearing about your ideas and suggestions that might provide some additional diversification into other areas. Thanks very much - take as many question credits as necessary.
