Q: Hi 5i, only one question ever on VBNK (note new ticker - your system says VB) and it's an old one. I bought years ago, sold 25% at over 100% profit, failed to sell more, watched it descend, now just doubled down. I'm not trained in finance but to me the income statement over 4 years is good (though some expenses up), balance sheet is good to strong, cash flow good but two indicators (investing cash flow and financing cash flow) are negative, and operating cash flow has slowed (down 50% over 4 years). Nicely profitable, low debt, good business model, expanding into US (hopefully a good thing!), what's not to like?

Thanks for all you do
John

Q: Hello,
What are your current 'best ideas' in the micro to small cap space, 5 in Canada and 5 in the US for a 5 year hold that have a market cap of at or below $1 billion market cap, are founder-led, have high insider ownership and high forecasted annual revenue growth (greater than 20%/yr)? Thank you.

Q: Crypto currency seems on the rise. Good short article today in Barron's. This is a real threat to visa and mastercard business models. I would not want to own those stocks. On the other hand, Versa bank (vb) should benefit and they are about to get us broker coverage with their pending Nasdaq listing. It could see a huge increase in share price. Gosh the company even makes good money.

Q: Seems to me that the financial sector stands to benefit from current economic conditions. That being considered, I would appreciate it if you would share some , small, medium and large cap companies that you would buy at this time to take advantage the possible upside potential of various financials. They could be both Canadian and American companies.

Q: VB on a bit of a tear the last few months. Iím at 1/2 position and canít decide whether to hold for overall financial sector diversification (also hold BNS, TD, SUnlife, MFC) or sell and add to one or all four of these large caps. Given VBís valuation has now caught up to the sector, my thinking is it only now moves with the sector on go forward basis, so why not play that game with a safer large cap financial name? Does this make sense?
