Q: I would like to do some tax loss selling and was wondering if you might be able to rank ILLM, UPST, OVV, TOY, SQ, GH, FLGT, and COW in order from those with the least potential to recover over the next year, to the most potential. If I were to sell them all, are there any you would consider buying back after 30 days? Thanks.

Q: Long investor trying my best to hang in there in with some of my dog stocks. Down significantly in Matterport 85%. Guardant Health 29%. Canada Goose 45%. Inmode 40%. Southwest Airlines 40%. Viemed 32%.
My 5i membership has been a stalwart of sound reason over the years, and Iíve appreciated your take on some companies that nose dive, but you feel are worthy of hanging onto, even if it takes a year or more. (ROKU and PINS spring to mind). With some potential tax loss harvesting coming up, which of the following would you think could be a re-buy, and which could be saluted and sent off to oblivion after the sale? Iím consigned now to doing either.

Q: This company's stock price has taken a bigger hit than other high growth healthcare names. What's the reason for this and is it still a company with good long term potential? Are there other small cap US healthcare companies that may be undervalued that you prefer to this one?

Q: I am down more than 50% on CRWD.US, ROKU.US, and GH.US in my RRIF and should have been paying more attention as they kept getting lower.

Is there any hope for a distinct short term (1 year) revival, or would a better plan be to sell all/any of them and invest in something with momentum.

Suggestions are welcome.

Q: Over the past two years with the downturn of the market, I am down significantly with majority of these holdings in various accounts. I have a long-term 10+ year outlook, so looking to see if you feel any of these can be sold off given the outlook, management of the company? If so, what are your recommendations for a growth investor in either CAD/US stock options?

Q: Hello Peter and Ryan,

I just read a negative research report on Guardant Health in Seeking Alpha, suggesting it may not be returning to its growth premium anytime soon. If you were to have a change of mind on seeing it as a HOLD, can you suggest a few compelling replacements from your current US high-growth list of favourites (within or outside of this sector)? Thanks, Brad

Q: Hi there,

Iíve often heard that a handful of stocks can provide life changing returns. If you had to pick 5 (or more) that could be life changing, which would they be in preferential order?

Q: I own ILMN, VEEV, GH but not LNTH. Would you recommend a switch to LNTH for more growth? I can use ILMN and VEEV for a tax loss - should these be repurchased or just buy LNTH (or another stock?)for more growth?

Thanks for your service !

Q: To my knowledge cancer is showing no signs of going away and yet these companies and others in the field have been punished with the rest of the market. Can you please provide an attractive entry point for each and state which 1 or 2 would be your favourite and why? If you can add one additional name that you think has tremendous potential in this field I would be appreciative. If that requires a second credit go ahead and take it!
