Q: Hi Team,
Any idea on why ATZ can't seem to catch a bid lately? Especially on a day like's still down when other stocks in the sector are up today. I don't really understand where the weakness is coming from as everything in their last release and the future prospects looks points to the company firing on all cylinders so to speak. Should a person be looking at adding to a existing position here soon? Thanks

Q: Hi Atz will report within four weeks approximately. How many new stores have they opened since last report? Are there any new stores set to open before summer? What is your intuition as to surplus inventory reported last quarter? If one wants to invest would you advise waiting until they report? I know you favour the company and itís share have fallen 20 percent since last report. Spring is almost here and new shoots are sprouting.
Thanks and good day

Q: What small to mid cap companies can you recommend that have been beaten up due to market conditions but have a high chance of success long term? Looking at a potential entry point this year with the prospect of beating out the returns of larger cap names that may be in a similar situation. Could you also give a brief thought on the risk/reward of this approach as well. Thanks very much.

Q: I have held TOY for a number of years while its done nothing and I am considering a switch to ATZ. Before I throw in the towel on TOY, I would like to check a few things with you:
1) what are the current and projected P/E's for each stock?
2) what are the projected growth rates for each stock?
3) I believe TOY has a rock solid balance sheet, do you have any concerns about ATZ's balance sheet and ability to weather a possible recession? If so, ewhat are the concerns?
4) On a scale of 1-10 what are the chances of each company still being around in 5-10 years?
5) which stock has better short term and which has better long term opportunites? 6) would you make the switch?

Thanks for everything!

Q: Would appreciate your view on Aritzia and its trajectory relative to LULU. Are we in early innings with ATZ with Lulu more mature. Possible in 5 years to have atleast 50% of Lulu market cap? The growth strategy seems sound and their stores are always jammed.

Q: This question concerns a well diversified Canadian portfolio (~30 holdings), focused slightly toward growth.

Looking to add to positions in ATZ, DOO, BN, BAM, GSY, KXS, TRI, PBH and T as well as initiate a partial position in WELL, all for long term holds (5+ years).

Would you rate any of these as a wait-and-see rather than a buy today? Please rate (1-10) in terms of your conviction to buy today, along with suggested target buy range [great, okay].

Thank you.

Q: Hi 5i,

I have owned GOOS for the past 3yrs and I am questioning the company's prospects moving forward giving their performance and their dependence on the Chinese economy for growth.

Considering replacing GOOS with ATZ. Management seems to execute well and their track record of growth is impressive.

Would appreciate your thoughts.

Thank you in advance.
