Q: I retired last year and then setup a consulting company which keeps me busy less than half time. My accountant advised that setup an investment portfolio within the business banking account. I am looking at one CND bank ETF (25%), One dividend ETF (40%), and one growth ETF. (25%) I would like to add one or two CDN or US growth stocks representing 10% of the portfolio. Can you please give me some choices for the one or two growth stocks? Thanks again!

Q: Hello 5i
Recently you replied to a question regarding covered calls. You said you like high volatility companies for this strategy. In other places you said that you do not tend to write calls on core holdings. Just wondering what stocks you currently prefer for this strategy, that are not, or maybe, your core holdings

Q: Would appreciate your guidance on building a healthcare portfolio with these names and any other suggestions divided into 2 categories [1] core [to constitute the bulk of the portfolio] and [2] growth, for a 3+ year hold. If you could add a few thoughts on each as to why you like or not, that would be most helpful.
Best wishes

Q: Hello 5i Team,

I'm down considerably in these US stocks in a taxable account: APPS, DIS, DXCM, EXPI, FB, NET, NFLX, U, and UPST.

I would like to crystallize some losses.

Could you please suggest:

1. The stocks I should sell outright (and suggest a replacement);

2. The stocks I should sell and then re-buy in 30 days (and suggest a proxy); and

3. The stocks I should continue to hold.

Feel free to subtract as many credits as required.

Thank you for your valuable advice!

Q: Hi folks
BMO Investorline's chart for DXCM is completely different than your chart? Can you explain please. Your chart shows huge jump in price on about March 25th. Is this correct? Is there still room for gain? Would you BUY now? My Health sector weight is 4.55% which is down from its high due to the market of course. (ZTS, PFE, GH, VEEV, BNTX)
Much thanks for keeping me well on track through the ups and downs for about 8 years now..I recommend you often.
