Q: I have small positions in the above noted companies held in my TFSA. They are all underwater and so there is no tax advantage to selling these losers. I would like to sell some or all of them and either to one or more of them or move on to some small techs that have more prospects. Can you let me know which of these you would sell hold or add to. Thanks for your ongoing great advise.

Q: These are my candidates for tax loss selling. As a proxy for OKTA I intend to add to my existing position in CRWD, would you agree with that strategy? As for the other 3, I do not intend to buy proxies however I would consider repurchasing after 30 days. Do you suggest proxies for these 3? Also, would you repurchase. Thank you.

Q: Hello 5i!
At this point in the cycle can you please rate the following as buy, sell or hold. I know you sometimes say in a different kind of market high growth can do well. Can you please comment on whether one should decrease technology holdings in general or just wait for tech to shine again one day. Thank you!

Q: I am restructuring a non-registered account to be more defensive, and less tech heavy. All of the following US stocks are down: APPS, OKTA, PYPL, PLTR, SE, TTD, MRVL, TWLO, U, VEEV. Do you consider them a sell or hold?

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?

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.

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.
