Investment Q&A

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

Q: Morning 5i team, thanks for all the great advice you supply to the members.
I have $50K to invest and would like your advice. This is what Iím currently holding in my non registered account.

Canada
AC, BYD, GSY, LSPD, SHOP, TDB3098, TOI
US
AAPL, SQ, CRWD, CSX, ETSY, MA, MSFT, NVDA, PYPL, UXI, ROBO, U

Considering my high exposure to Tech and your last market update, I might need to consider more consumer cyclical and financial stocks as well as others to balance the portfolio. Iím looking to have a mix of growth and value holdings.

I would appreciate your recommendations on new Canadian or US acquisitions and possible entry points. Can you recommend one of two of the US Tech stocks to sell and replace it with GOOG.

Please take as many credits a you see fit.

Thanks
Joe

Q: Hi 5i; Thanks for your wonderful advice. You have helped my portfolio to grow for many, many years.

What would be your top picks at this time, in each of the following sectors: consumer discretionary, real estate and industrials. I am underweight in these and am looking for growth.

Thanks, your fan

Q: What do you think about tax-loss selling each of the above companies at this point? If in favour, do you think I should buy 30 day proxies for each, and if so, what companies? Thanks.

Q: Sold ATZ for tax loss. Is CROX a good proxy or would you recommend something else? Would you buy ATZ back later?

Q: Hello guys
I am interested to do some tax loss selling for these stocks given steep drops over a year or so. Could you please weigh in on strategy and if you agree could you please propose some alternatives?
Thanks

Q: Hi Peter and Staff

In my consumer discretionary basket the above 3 are "in the red". I have hung on to some losers far too long and have sold some that I wish I had not.

I have no problem in owing a basket of stocks in a sector if warranted. However that approach also means I can sell some and add to others without their position being "too large"

Assuming I would be adding to one or more of HD, DOO,DOL,LNF or MG which order would you add to and which if any of the above 3 would you not sell to add to any of those listed.

Thanks for all you do

Dennis

Q: Wondering what 3 or 4 Canadian stocks you would choose to buy in a non registered account now, waiting for a full economic re opening and a settlement on the Russia -Ukraine conflict?
Seems energy, financials and materials are at highs. Tech is beaten up.
MG and SHOP come to mind. Any others you would suggest?
Thanks

Q: Like a previous subscriber wrote, we also appreciate your most recent report: specifically, the numeric historical context of this current correction, the sectors affected and those most likely to benefit.
We are invested in each of the three of the 5i portfolios and over the next 1-2 months plan to make staggered and targeted contributions.
Could you suggest 3 or 4 companies from each portfolio where the winds of sentiment are excessively negative and would be attractive to purchase with this approach?
This is for a 5+ years hold.
Thank you

Q: I held a smallish position in Canada Goose, and was getting less optimistic about sales growth, particularly in China, and sold half early in 2021 at about $53. Obviously should have sold all of it.
Today's results were disappointing with regard to the outlook.

(1)Wondering what you think of the GOOS results.

(2) If I sell the remaining GOOS shares, I would add to an existing smallish position in one of Pollard Banknote, Park Lawn or Trisura. How would you rank these 4 companies, GOOS, PBL, PLC, TSU, as part of a balanced portfolio with a tolerance for risk?

Q: If Canada Goose was to beat estimates soundly as is their history for the coming quarter earnings (large share price increases follow reporting), how would this be viewed in the current market? Or would the current down draft ignore this and continue the downward pressure. For that matter if any company was to beat estimates this quarter is the selling pressure too much to overcome?

Q: Looking at some Canadian companies that are involved in various aspects of consumer activity such as retail, investing, borrowing. Please rate each of the following on a scale of 1-10 for desirability for a 5+ year hold in a well diversified portfolio. Looking for good total return with a higher than average tolerance for share price volatility. These would not be core positions. CF, EQB, GOOS, NFI, PBI, PLC, TSU, TOY, ZZZ.
