Q: I was looking at a list of your past picks that haven't been mentioned for awhile but they seem to be doing quite well. In fact, they have as good a track record as some of the US stocks you mentioned recently. Mastercard which I own is under water over the past year, I am thinking of selling it and the above 2 look like good replacements. Preferably, ZS. Do you still pay attention to these 2?

Q: Good afternoon,

The technology portion of my portfolio has grown too large (about 37%) and Im trying to figure out how to get it back to about 25%? My issue is that Im interested in too many tech options (I.e., the ones that I own plus others Id like to buy). Im looking for suggestions on which I should sell, add to or replace by buying a better option. Some were initiated with half positions that went down and some full positions grew so the proportions all over the place. I have a long time horizon and many are held in a registered account (except SHOP and NVDA). I own: KXS (3.5%), CSU (3.8%), SHOP (2.7%), PHO (<1%), ZS (3.3%), TEAM (1%), NVDA (6.1%), AAPL (11%), MSFT (4.6%) and Im interested in buying REAL, DOCU and GOOG. Id like to own what are viewed as solid tech companies for future innovation and growth and Im willing to add, remove or replace any of these companies.

I also need to add materials and REITs to my portfolio since I currently have no holdings in these. Ill use my tech trimmings to add to these sectors. Suggestions of top companies for these two sectors would also be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks for all the great work and suggestions you provide,
Lisa

Q: Palo Alto has identified Zscaler as their competition and ripped the company somewhat on an earnings call. The CEO of Zscaler fired back on CNBC with comments such as the below. My question is whether this is a buy with potential based on your knowledge and comments below. It has gone from nearly $90 to $51 in a few months despite seemingly doing well.

"Zscaler, which came public in the first half of 2018, offers cloud security software for IT professionals to monitor network traffic and protect data. The company surprised analyst estimates by turning a small profit in four straight quarters.

Revenue grew by more than 53% in its July quarter and is expected to near $90 million in the current quarter, according to FactSet.

The market is coming to us. Were seeing a lot of growth, Chaudhry said. We crossed 400 off the Global 2,000 companies as our customers, so [we are] very bullish about the opportunity.
