Q: We have very little tech. exposure in our portfolios as a % - so minimal. Own IGM & ARKK in USD portfolio - IGM for 4 years - done very well. In TFSA, own STC, VHI, XIT ETF. All the others are on my list to purchase as not. I would buy equal positions - so, of those we do not own which three would you consider the best in the short and long term. I am mostly a dividend grower investor - companies that increase them every year; however, trying to add a bit of tech. Maybe there others not shown that meet my criteria?

Q: Hi 5i team,
I have XBC in my TFSA with a 50% loss. As you mentioned before, it probably will take about a year for the company to prove itself. There wonít be much upside for this stock in the near future. In order to put the money to better use, Iím going to sell XBC now and use the proceeds to purchase another company hopefully at the cusp of positive move. Iím thinking of ATA / EGLX / MCR from the Growth Portfolio. Iím looking for high revenue growth and strong cash flow. Which of these do you think have the most upside potential in the next 12 months and why or would you suggest another name? Thanks.

Q: Hey Guys, been a few months since we've heard your thoughts on MCR. I'm flip flopping on this one because its clearly underperformed due to being tied to the o&g sector. But we've seen other o&g companies and even service companies (drilling not pipeline) recovering, while MCR still heads down. However I still see potential here, very high insider ownership, trading below book value, still profitable, reducing shares, decent roic, and 2020 guidance has been updated twice in the last 6 months to 250M. Yes the share price still heads down. I feel this one has the potential to increase dramatically or am I holding on to this one too long? Thx

Q: I would appreciate 10 US and/or Canadian small cap growth stocks to invest in for the next two to five years.

Q: Iím curious as to why MCR is selling off today. There was news today that the estimated cost of the TMX line has nearly doubled. With macroís spread being reimbursable (one of the few with out a cap from my understanding), wouldnít this be very positive? (Ie. macro stands to make more then original contract estimates). Is this not one of the cheapest stocks on the Canadian stock exchange based on p/e? Thanks
