Q: I have a question about 89568
Do you know if Fulgent is actively working on growing it's biotech testing such as for immunotherapy? Looking at long term growth of this field it is going to be a huge field and companies such as Icon are already well off to the races in this field and I'm looking for alternate companies that specialize in testing and right now this company gets a lot of press on it's COVID testing only.

Q: Hi 5i Team. Thanks as always. I'm looking to start some positions in the USD side of my TFSA over the course of the next month or so. I'm particularly interested in good growth opportunities in the following sectors: Technology, Healthcare, Industrials and Communications. Can you suggest a few US stocks within each of these sectors that are some of your best ideas right now? I am open to all types of suggestions, but already having a few larger caps (MFST, ABBV, LMT) I would prefer small or mid-cap suggestions where possible. Please take as many credits as necessary - thanks again.

Q: Good afternoon folks
BNTX has been doing very well as of late. I am up 35% ish. Also my entire health sector weighting is 6.85%...all US$...BNTX is 2% of this total. I also own MDT, DXCM, ZTS, GH, & VEEV. I have too many stocks in general throughout all sectors and am trying to sell off several slowly but surely. ( I have 66 stocks). The problem being I fall in love with each of them...(yes....very bad I know)...as they have mostly been carefully chosen and watched over almost every day.
My question is should I sell all of my BNTX or shave but sell any of the others mentioned above,
Thanks as always for your sound advice.

Q: Hope you and yours have so far successfully avoiding covid-19.
Our portfolio is below
Cons Discr 5%: US:NIO, US:CELH
Cons Stpl 3.8% - US:COST
Energy 6.2%
Fin Svcs 38% - BNS, GSY, RY, SHOP, SLF, US:BAM, US:JPM, US:MCO, US:V
Health 4.2% - US:MDT
Ind 5.8% - US:RTX, CNR
Real Est 2.7% - US:RDFN
Tech 13.4%
Telcom 5.7%
Util 7.4%
Cash 8%

All the fin svcs are up nicely but V and BAM have only small gains. We like both but think we should reduce this overweight sector and re-balance among the Industrial, Health and Real Estate sectors.
We are down 41% on NIO and down 12% on CELH but we are prepared to wait unless you think their prospects arent worth the wait.
Wed appreciate your view on what to sell in fin svcs and what to buy in Ind, Health & Real Est.
Many, many thanks.

Q: I'm down ~15-20% on these names and contemplating a tax loss swap.
For each of these, do you think there are suitable proxies or are they are hard to replace?
For FLNT in particular, I'm considering dumping it all together, so a similarly battered small-cap name you think will perform better will work as well.
Finally, when it comes to tax-loss selling, do you have a rule of thumb on the % down a name should be before it makes sense, or it's generally situation dependant?

Q: I have similar weightings of MDB, DOCU, PAYC, CRWD, GH, NET, and TWLO in my US RRSP account. As per the recent report recommendation from 5i, I would like to rotate some of my lesser quality stocks into strong value stocks or ETFs. Can you suggest 2 of 3 of the above that you would recommend I reduce or sell out and what strong value plays would make sense to backfill them with? Am I interpreting the guidance of the report correctly? Thanks!!
