Investment Q&A

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

Q: Hi Peter and crew. I know that US tech companies are "not in your wheel house" and I also know that you have great insight. so I am interested in your opinions on the following.
I am watching that both Rivian and Global Foundries Inc. are applying to the SEC this fall to go public. Both appear to be in a good space for long term trends/needs. I am interested in long term investing in these companies when they come to market.
BTW - Peter, Loved the article in the FP about your father-in-law. Maybe the 2 above companies will give him " the action" he is looking for!

Q: Hello 5i,
I made a mistake of not investing in AMD with a proper weight this stock deserved (with all the new chips). So now what to do? How do you view AMD's future?
SOXX 1.75%, Q 2%, UCTT 2%, AMD 1%, ICHAR 0.5%
My end goal is to fold individual stocks into SOXX eventually but perhaps AMD deserves an increase in its weight to 3% given the momentum?

Q: Hello,
I was lucky enough to invest in NVIDIA 3-4 years ago but it has grown to around 15% of my portfolio. I’m considering trimming it to 6-7%. I want to replace with other companies in the tech sector, which ones would you recommend for a 10+ year hold? My only other tech holding is Kinaxis.
Thank you for your help.

I read an article called “The World Relies on One Chip Maker in Taiwan, Leaving Everyone Vulnerable” that appeared on the WSJ.

Q: On CNBC on Friday Tom Lee disclosed these 20 as his "Epicentre Stock Portfolio" and opined that the bottom is in. He seems to be quite revered and apparently his calls have been more correct than not. Could you list your best seven from this list that you would buy today in order. Any other comment of course welcomed as well - Ken

Q: Currently I own all of these semi conductor related companies in my taxable account. QCOM, AMD and MRVL are still at a loss since the March downturn. All others are in positive territory, especially SMH. Should I continue to hold them all as core holdings for the long term or would you trim or delete any? Is it still a good idea to hold SMH because the ETF owns a number of companies like ASML, AMAT, an MU that I do not hold?

Q: We keep hearing chip shortages lately, and will imagine that "AMD', TSM', NVDA'....chip names will do well as a result of strong demand and price power etc. But most of these chip names are all well below their February highs. Could you help us understanding the share price and demand divergence observed? If we buy any of these names, will we be rewarded? If yes, which one or ones you like? Thanks

Q: I'm looking to reduce the overall amount of positions. Of my tech names which would you suggest selling?

From what I can gather you prefer NVDA to AMD and would suggest one of either SHOP or LSPD. Is this accurate? Other suggestions or ideas to pair down?

Thank you very much

Q: Hi Peter, in the semi space we have AMD, NVDA, QRVO, ON, and MKSI. Knowing that NVDA is your favorite would you exit or trim any of these ? In Tech what do you think happens if/when the big guys AAPL, GOOGL etc and then the smaller guys report more good earnings numbers ? Will this boost them or are we past that for now ? Thanks for all you do !
