Not investment advice or solicitation to buy/sell securities. Do your own due diligence and/or consult an advisor.

Q: What do you think of twilio's downside from here? Is it a company that that you like once the tech market's calm down. Where do you think the long term upside potential for this company is? What are the pros and cons of this stock, concerning the market they are in and where they rank in it, the financial ratios, insider buying/selling ? Would you consider it a buy, hold or sell at this time? Is this and will this be a dominant player? Thanks

Q: Hi, There are lots of high growth companies out there with little or no free cash flow. Growth investors accept this because these companies invest aggressively in their own growth, development, market position, etc.

While it's understandable that high growth companies focus on their own growth now, presumably they will eventually need to switch to other forms of capital allocation. I am wondering if you have any insight into how much confidence we should have in which of these management teams will act in the best interest of shareholders when the time comes to maximize shareholder value via other forms of capital allocation. For example, if a company reaching maturity throws most of their resources into R&D despite diminishing returns it would not be in our best interest.

I realize the answer to this isn't completely knowable, so also interested in your general thoughts on this topic.
Thanks

Q: Hi Team,
I am an aggressive investor, which paid off lovely in 2020, but now am being crushed. I hold the following stocks (with weightings in brackets) in total in my brokerage accounts. Could you have a quick look and tell me how this basket looks "In general"? And if you see this basket doing well over the longer term (say 5-10yr hold), pointing out any suggested changes you would make, if any are "sells" or worth switching out. Note that if I sell any GSY it would incur tax (the weighting is large because the position has grown and have been a firm believer in the company as its valuation still looks cheap and am collecting a nice div off it as well). I am 42yrs old so retirement is a ways away and my goal is maximum returns with reasonable risk until retirement. Please deduct credits as required. Thanks

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!
