Q: I have more tech equities than I want going forward. Please help me strike one or two off my list by ranking these in order of potential growth over the long term /min 5 years. For fun (since it probably won't affect my decision), please also rank from least volatility to most volatility. Thank you very much!

Q: Thank you for answering my question comparing ARKK with QQQJ/EDGW. Somehow it seems to have been flagged as Private! Didn't mean to mark as private. Please feelfree to unflag it!
Your answer as always has been consistent. You favoured ARKK. Thanks.
But this is an extension of that question. I know you don't get into asset allocation! Let me try anyway in the following manner!
If someone is ready to invest 100k, 3 to 5 years, high risk tolerance, what would be % you would allocate in each of the ARK funds?

Q: Hi,
Could you comment on my profolio for a 5 year hold? Should I add/remove/replace any of the stocks?
Also, Cathie Wood said she is expecting a drop of the market this year. However I currently have ZERO cash position. Do you think I should trim my profolio to have some cash? If yes how much percent do you recommend?

Q: Hi team,

With 22 tech stocks weighting some 34% of my portfolio, I assume you would recommend that I rationalize my approach for a better diversification, both in my tech sector and in my portfolio as a whole.

To accomplish that, while keeping a strong growth approach, could you indicate which are, in your view, 1) the « must own » stocks, in order of importance 2) those which could be dropped because of « double emploi » or high risk, 3) those missing to properly cover the tech sector ?

Please feel free to use as many credits as you see fit.

Gratefully yours,

Jacques IDS

Q: Could I have your views on the Emerge suite of etfs; EAUT, EARK, EAGB, EAFT and EAAI. Returns so far seem to be pretty good but wondering if some of those could become part of a personal portfolio. Haven't heard very many questions on these particular etfs.

Q: First, I wanted to thank you for your Canadian portfolio suggestions, especially for the balanced and growth ones. I've been very lucky on timing, still I am extremely happy with the service, advices and the gains this year. On another note, I am looking to allocate 10%-15% of my locked-in RSP in either an international or global well managed portfolio composed of small cap and/or mid cap stocks. Looking for intelligent high risk. I have a long time horizon (I am 30 years old). I would prefer actively managed or an ETF you strongly believe in, diversified and with a strong track record. I had MAW150 in mind, but when I look at the top 10 positions individually... They are pretty much all at their all time high and I'm not sure if they have a lot more room for growth ahead this year or next year factoring all the risk that remains. I know it's almost impossible to time the market, but if I can dodge a speculative correction like there was for tech this week, I would be more than happy. All that said, which one(s) would you recommend considering the most for September 2020 based on your expertise.
Thank you again.

Q: Dear 5i,
I would like to spice-up my portfolios with small allocations to some small/mid-cap/thematic/sector ETFs. The Active ETF's can be sold on a US or CDN exchange and the holdings can be in any country. Can you suggest as many as you can so I can do some further research. (ie ARK products look interesting to me)

thanks for your suggestions

Q: Could you offer an opinion about the Wisdom Tree cloud computing etf. How would you compare it to AKRW. It would seem to me that disruptive technologies are awarded high values and are the future. AKRW seems to be a bit more diversified eg includes Tesla as a tech stock. What % position would you be comfortable with in an otherwise diversified portfolio.
Thanks Peter
