Q: Hi 5i,

Amongst other pricey cybersecurity companies, CHKP seems very reasonably valued. It it 'cheap for a reason', or is it a solid stock to pick up now?

Also, do you still like RPD after its recent report?

Is there anything else (besides CRWD) that you prefer in this space?

TIA!

Q: Up until now, I have only part full or nearly full positions in a stock while trying to keep my total number of stocks under 30 in number. However, I am now considering taking a slightly different approach and buying a basket of some beaten-up stocks, likely from those noted above.

Since I am new to this strategy, my question is, what would you consider to be a useful percentage to devote to a stock that will allow for meaningful gains while limited individual risk? I'm thinking 1% is too little, 1.5% might be enough and certainly no more than 2%.

Your insight is appreciated.

regards,

Paul F.

Q: Peter and Team. Happy New Year to you all. In December I engaged in some tax loss selling to lower my previous taxable gains on the above noted stocks. The 30 days has passed and I now plan to repurchase some of them to hold for 2 years or so. Can you please rank which of these you consider are the best to re-purchase in my non registered account. Are there any in this list which you suggest I should forgot about. Thanks for your great advise.

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
