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.

Q: Please briefly describe the major differences between the services these 2 companies offer. Are they direct competitors or are they complementary i.e. diversify exposure. If wanting to add exposure to cybersecurity is one preferable? is there a better long-term growth option in this space? This would be for a long term hold. Thank you.

Q: Both of these has been hitting all time highs.
Looks like STNE passed the 20B market cap and kept going. Any thoughts on valuation?
Re Okta looking to add to round out the position. Worth waiting for it to settle down or things looks good into 2021 and beyond so good as any time to hit the buy button. Maybe the recent cyber attack is helping here.
