Q: Hi 5i Team - Could you suggest a few cyber security stocks, Canadian and U.S., including established companies that are profitable as well as two or three newer ones that show some promise but may or may not be profitable yet. Any market cap is fine. Thanks.

Q: Hi 5i team,

I知 thinking of selling a few stocks at a loss to balance out capital gains (I trimmed NVDA since my stock position got too high). I can cover an equivalent loss by selling two (or a combination of all 3) of the following stocks: DIS, TTD and CRWD. I bought all 3 at a much higher price. CRWD and TTD have had a nice bounce and I知 thinking that the near term environment of debt ceiling and sell in May could be a good time to take losses. I知 wondering if you have other items I should consider related to selling now versus later this year? If later, what would be a good time to consider?

I have other similar tech stocks such as GOOG and ZS and I知 wondering if I should consider another proxy for any or not bother? And I知 also wondering about re-buying at a reasonable entry point after 30 days for any of the 3 or simply move on?

I壇 appreciate any insights you could provide.

Thanks as always,

I own the above noted stocks as a smaller portion of my portfolio of higher risk names. All of these names are down other than CTS. Do you see any of these names as ones that I should sell as part of a portfolio clean up?

Thanks in advance,

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.

Q: Hi there, I'm thinking of adding the following stocks to my portfolio to make up a total of 3% to 5% of my overall holdings - so a relatively small amount overall. Can I please have your thoughts on them and if you'd rate them as buy, sell or holds? And if sell or hold, which names would you replace them with?

Thank you!

Q: Good day,

I am looking for a good (over-priced) US stock to for a Put spread - one where the premium (implied volatility) is reasonable. I had a Put spread on TSLA, but got out of it when they announced the spilt (as those options, post-split, go to the liquidity wasteland). Thanks

ps. I would prefer a US stock, but if that is not doable, then CDN will do. Thx

Q: As we move into 2022 I find myself looking for long-term trends that I can believe in and consequently feel safe to invest in. It seems to me that:
2. Cyber security
3. Payments
are three such trends. I'm curious if you agree with my three choices and if you do could you suggest a couple of companies in each trend that would be your favourites. Finally, are there other viable long term trends that you think I have missed?
