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!

Q: Good morning Ryan, Peter, and Team,

These are some of the stocks in my "growth" basket that have been most decimated in recent weeks. In which order might you sell, or would you suggest staying the course at this stage, given the dramatic share price drops? If selling, where might you move some of the cash for a (hopeful) rebound potential over the next six months? Thanks. Brad

Q: Can you please rank the following cancer related stocks based from best to worst based on your understanding of which are currently under appreciated based on their potential to cure or prevent cancer? To put it another way, do any of them have technology that could become significantly larger businesses than they are today in treating or detecting cancer?
Please add one name that I have not listed that may have higher potential.

Q: Hi. I still like both companies (veev,gh) but am going to sell for tax loss reasons and that they total between them 3% only of my portfolio. Am looking to consolidate into a single health care stock to go along with MDT which I already own in my portfolio. I like my positions to be at least 3% and not two smaller positions. Any suggestions. I was thinking ILMN. If you like ILMN please let me know why and what sets them apart. Thanks

Q: Would you have a good proxy for U:US, DND and GH:US to capture tax losses, I do not need them but I would use them at for the future? If there is no equivalent, please state that as well and I can wait until markets return, whenever that will be.

Thanks for your service!

Q: I'm down about 17% in Guardant Health and the downward track since the peak a year ago does not look appealing. I've read the most recent comments on this stock and you seem to suggest that it might be worth hanging on to or possible even buying more.
In a case like this, the question for me is always:
1) Should I get out now before it goes any lower, or should I hang in and hope it recovers by 17% in the next year?
2) If I do sell it, what would I buy that has a better chance of increasing 17% in the next year?
I recognize, of course that you don't have a crystal ball, but you DO have your eye on the ball and that's what I depend on.

I am down even more on Crowdstrike (25%) and the same dilemma applies.

Your thoughts please and deduct points as appropriate.

Q: I am down on average 50% on all of the 5 above noted US stocks. I am wondering how many of these you would consider averaging down on to buy more and hold for a recovery and which you would cut your losses on and sell now ?
I am prepared to hold all of them if their prospects of returning to previous highs are reasonably good within the next 12 months or so and as always value your opinions.
