Q: In our “balanced portfolio” we have decided to go to US stocks for our healthcare allocation. Currently holding MDT, VEEV and GH. Are these reasonable holdings? We like a concentrated portfolio so only have these 3 as our healthcare stocks. Would you suggest any changes or potentially a new 4th position? We are buy and hold growth investors looking at greater than 10 years until we would require these funds.

Q: Hello 5i Team.

Thank you for all the insights into investing - it has been profitable both educationally and financially.

7% of our portfolio is in geared to health care with a holding of 5 stocks , GUD - (slightly underwater but is the hopeful flyer), Medtronic - MDT, Cardinal Health - CAH, Abbvie - ABBV, Johnson & Johnson- JNJ. In an effort to reduce the overall number of stocks in our TFSA, RRSP and taxable accounts I was considering liquidating CAH and JNJ and either purchasing more ABBV or adding SYK, unless of course you can recommend another US health care stock. JNJ and and CAH have been the laggards of the US group since my initial purchases. I realize MDT and SYK might be similar but i do believe surgeries should increase in 2022.

I enjoy reading your resources and recommend it often.

Kevin
