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

Q: Good day,

I am looking for a good (over-priced) US stock to for a Put spread - one where the premium (implied volatility) is reasonable. I had a Put spread on TSLA, but got out of it when they announced the spilt (as those options, post-split, go to the liquidity wasteland). Thanks

ps. I would prefer a US stock, but if that is not doable, then CDN will do. Thx

Q: I was looking at a list of your past picks that haven't been mentioned for awhile but they seem to be doing quite well. In fact, they have as good a track record as some of the US stocks you mentioned recently. Mastercard which I own is under water over the past year, I am thinking of selling it and the above 2 look like good replacements. Preferably, ZS. Do you still pay attention to these 2?

Q: HI 5i Team. I really appreciate your comments that speak to opportunities/areas or perhaps "themes" where you currently see good growth opportunities now and in the coming years. Some commentators have pointed to themes such as EV and materials that support EV, clean tech generally, changes in healthcare, etc. What would you consider to be some of the better investing themes right now (say 3 or 4?) and what would some of your suggestions right now for some good Canadian and good US stock selections within each, with growth in mind over a roughly 5 year horizon in a TFSA. I already have positions in LSPD, WELL, XBC and QST, and I plan to acquire AZT next. So I would be interested in hearing about your ideas and suggestions that might provide some additional diversification into other areas. Thanks very much - take as many question credits as necessary.

Q: Happy New Year 5i,
A question was asked on Jan 04 which I will expand on. Can you rank the following in order to purchase for a 1-3 year hold at a minimum.
Many of the stocks are in a consolidation period after a sharp rise this year. Of the list, which 5 stocks would be considered a higher risk that they have not bottomed out or a correction may yet be due?

Thank you for your great service.
Debbie and Jerry

Q: Hi team,

As you know from my questions, I like tech and am a growth investor. I do own some lower beta non-tech stocks as a counter-balance; I just donít ask a lot of questions on them. The cloud is working these days, with a few normal hiccups. I follow a ton of stocks in the space, so I will ask about five (down from ten) that were bid very high going into earnings, that is, TEAM, TTD, SPLK, AYX, WDAY. Earnings and guidance, as far as I can recall were great, yet the stocks sold off. I attribute it to normal profit taking after big run-ups. I own TTD and TEAM. I owned WDAY in the past, but sold it prematurely. I am a bit shocked and impressed today how AYX shot up about 5% when the market had an awful day. I could see no news on that on the websites I check. Any reason for that? How would you rank these five for growth prospects over the next several years and are there any red flags or undue risks for any so that you would avoid that company?

Thanks again,
