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.

Q: I hold the above six securities in a taxable account in less than half positions. On a tax neutral basis I could sell OKTA,SNOW,GH and PLUG and split the proceeds between ROKU and CRWD to bring them to larger positions. These investments are part of a relatively agressive taxable portfolio.
Two questions - firstly, if you could rank the 6 stocks in accordance with your preference. Secondly, do you think my proposal would create a meaningful stronger position for growth.
Thanks,
Terry

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.
