Q: Hello. I am looking at buying stock in one of these three companies. I recognize that these selections are in very different sectors. I would very much appreciate your opinion as to which one seems to hold the best potential as a long-term hold (5+ years). Thanks.

Q: Happy Easter to 5 iresearch team!
For long hold and after Covid 19 return to normal investments, which ones you would pick and why?
Copart "services include online seller access, salvage estimation services, estimating services, end-of-life vehicle processing, virtual insured exchange, ...."
Boyd Group Services, Inc. engages in the provision of automotive collision; and glass repair and related services.
Both focus in car services after accident, Copart in buying and selling on-line end-of-life cars with international reach thru online platform and Boyd in extending cars life after an accident.

Q: Hi 5i,
In reviewing my asset allocations, I am underweight in US and International. I am also light on Healthcare, Industrials, and Technology. Are there any companies (top 5) that jump out at you as growth based names that could help with this in terms of a 'two-birds-one-stone' approach?
I have a 10+ year timeline and a high risk tolerance.
Thanks in advance!

Q: Hi, looking at your Feb 2021 Investor Suite, page 14.

You show an implied return of 6.7% and I'm wondering how you get that. Immediately above the 6.7 are the numbers 236.13 and 123.51 and if you divide those and take the result to the 1/10 power and subtract one you get 6.7%. Trouble is, the 236.13 is described as "Shares Outs." meaning presumably shares outstanding, which really throws me (also, the shares outstanding are actually 2.36 million according to the companies section of the 5i website which suggests you really meant to say shares outstanding). I can see the logic if you meant to say "projected share price in 10 years". Can you explain to me how you get the 6.7%? Thanks.
