Q: I am looking for growth stocks in the cpu/GPU/AI realm.

Is it too late to get into SMCI at $250?

In what order would you buy NVDA, SMCI, AMD and ASML? Please include other names which you think are worth considering in this space.

Q: Good day 5i,

I currently hold positions in 5 semi-conductor companies: Nvidia, ASML, AMD, Taiwan Semi and Axcelis. I'd like to concentrate the positions in order to make the remaining positions more meaningful. However, I like all of these companies and feel they all have great growth ahead. If you were to concentrate this group, which would you sell? With those funds, in what order would you add to the others? Or would you keep all of them?

Growth-oriented investor, comfortable with volatility.

Thank you for your insights,

Q: On Jun 21st, you responded to A regarding stocks for a TFSA. My son has a smaller TFSA but a longer time frame. He currently holds ZSP in his TFSA and we have been looking at adding some stocks. We like all the ones you suggested, but some of them are also in the top ten holdings of ZSP. Would you suggest adding the individual stocks anyway? Or selling ZSP and holding only stocks? Our initial plan was to make ZSP about 20% of this TFSA and then hold 8-10 stocks. Also, what do you think of adding AXON and AMD to his TFSA at this time? Thank you.

Q: MF came out with a list of AI today, and they are all up today, presumably on the news. Is there a concern that this is turning into a bubble? I know there will be spending here, but is it getting away into the danger-zone? I am considering an etf that captures a wide swath of AI. Are you able to suggest something? Thanks!

Q: NVDA has become 10% of my portfolio. Too often, I have sold too early, and too often I have not sold, and lost the gain. What to do! I wonder if it's a good idea to trim and buy some TSM, or AMD, or is there another company I should be looking at? Or, if so many are at the point of entering NVDA, does that mean it just makes sense to hold a little longer and reevaluate regularly?

Q: Apparently there was a crypto or blockchain conference within the last week attended by some of the wealthiest individuals and companies on the planet.

Would you know what it was called?

1.It seems clear that some very influential people want this area to have a place in the world banking and trading worlds.

2. One commentator ( Josh Brown ) expressed the opinion that for the foreseeable future it will be very high risk kind of like gold mines over the years. But there might be money to be made in the picks & shovels companies..

Do you have any suggestions of companies that have merit or look to have potential in that picks & shovels areas?

Thank you

Q: Hello Peter and team,

Mr. Kim Bolton who has my respect as a guest on BNN, suggested yesterday that one may want to take some profits off NVDA and re-direct the cash to AMD/ADI. Not sure if he said TSM in the same Q&A or added later. I am of course paraphrasing his response. Any opinions on these companies or comments about such a strategy? Do these companies pass your writing covered call approach?

You recently mentioned recently the way to play AI was through U.S. Mega cap companies. Which ones in particular were you referring to ? Are there any ETF's worth reviewing?

Q: I hold UNITY and APPS , now less than 1% and at a substantial loss as part of a US $ registered account tilted to growth and, intentionally, heavy in tech. In addition to the above two, it has the following holdings, with % shown of TOTAL (U.S. & Cdn) portfolio, followed by % of profit/loss, Our Canadian portfolio is balanced and much larger.

META .75% (+21%) , TEAM 1.9% (0%), CRWD 2.7% (-20%),
QCOM 3.7% (+45%), MSFT 3.8%(+116%), GOOG 4.5%(+6%), and NVDA 8.8% (+200%).

I am looking at selling U and APPS and perhaps TEAM (?) , increasing META to about 1.5 and looking for something new. Maybe SMCI - but after the parabolic increase in the last month maybe that needs to be on a pullback. Anything about this that you would do differently., including alternatives to SMCI ?
Take as many question credits as needed - many thanks.

Q: Does the earning real ease by Qualcomm suggest that there may be a slowdown with Broadcom that reports later? Do you view Broadcom as a hold, buy or sell? And, would you consider a switch to AMD that had a significant drop is itís share price today? Which semiconductor stock (Broadcom or AMD) is a better buy right now especially given potential growth in the future due to AI?

Q: I am interested in investing in companies that are leaders in developing AI. So far I have identified GOOG, MSFT, NVDA, and AMD. Do you agree with this list and are you able to add to it? I have seen AMZN, AAPL, IBM and META with regard to AI, but are they simply users of AI rather than developers?
Thank you.

Q: Its pretty obvious that AI is going to be a big investment thesis this year and likely for a number of years. It looks like it will be very disruptive, which will create investment opportunities. With that will come hype and promotion of low quality companies that will get propped up in the wave of AI. Like crypto, NFT's, etc etc I think AI will probably be the next craze, and a lot of money will be made and lost. But so far the only recommendations I'm reading about are mega caps like Nvidia, Apple, GOOG which can do well but they aren't going to be multibaggers. Do you have any insight into smaller companies that may benefit most from this AI boom? Looking for game changing smaller companies that have the best chance at multibagger gains? Thx
