Q: Hello!
What is the likelihood of WELL needing cash giving the share price drop, potential acquisitions, and value returning (or not) to the sector. Are we taking on unnecessary risk holding it at these levels under water? I really like the execution team and their strategy, but sometimes there are things the business cannot control. Would love to see them continuing expanding paying penny on the dollar, I don't see any insider selling so far at glance, encouraging.
Thank you!

Q: Hi Team,
I am an aggressive investor, which paid off lovely in 2020, but now am being crushed. I hold the following stocks (with weightings in brackets) in total in my brokerage accounts. Could you have a quick look and tell me how this basket looks "In general"? And if you see this basket doing well over the longer term (say 5-10yr hold), pointing out any suggested changes you would make, if any are "sells" or worth switching out. Note that if I sell any GSY it would incur tax (the weighting is large because the position has grown and have been a firm believer in the company as its valuation still looks cheap and am collecting a nice div off it as well). I am 42yrs old so retirement is a ways away and my goal is maximum returns with reasonable risk until retirement. Please deduct credits as required. Thanks

Q: I get that there is money moving out of growth (tech) and into other areas of the market. However, all the mentioned names here have CAGR of > 25% amongst other great fundamentals (free cash flow, equity,...). So long as fundamentals don't change, I can't see any reason to sell - only to add to these names on this opportunity. So long as business grows (and >25% is huge!) all these should be winners in the long term, no?

I've experienced significant whiplash with most of these stocks but am optimistic that with a longer timeline I should be okay.

I'm hoping for two things in your response:
1. Giving me comfort that my thinking is correct and if I hold on I should be okay, and;
2. Of the list, the one stock you would add to today.

Thx for the comfort,

Q: Dear Peter et al:
You have built a stellar reputation by choosing some very fine winners. SHOP/LSPD/PBH/KXS and others which have gone to become multi baggers to use Peter Lynch's phrase!

From your new picks, your holdings in Growth portfolio and from your watch list which do you think are your next multi baggers? Can you gaze into your crystal ball and share your insights? I won't hold you to your predictions!! :) You may speak freely!! Once upon a time articles used to appear in financial magazines titled, "Next Microsoft is here"!! :)

I am asking this Question specifically to buy with new monies for TFSA/cash in RRSPs and some in non registered accounts. If not stocks , ETFs would be fine too.
Many thanks in advance.

Q: Hello. I have the above stocks in my TFSA and I have 6000.00 to add. Can you suggest any other stocks to add to this list or should I just add to the existing list? I have a 5-10 year time frame and I'm retired.

Thanks so much,

Q: Hi 5i,
I wrote inquiring about the above names mid week last week but didn't get an answer - I'm pretty sure i hit submit but possibly not.
I'm down on each - on some significantly - and was looking forward to a post tax loss selling bounce, but none came. In act, all but WELL were down on January 4 before the interest rate news hit on the afternoon of January 5, and all have continued to drop like stones since. I'm concerned that droppage would be happening even if the Fed hadn't scared people about interest rates, and I have the depressing feeling I own a basket of stone losers.
If I sell out of each now and put the funds into some good dividend payers like ENB, SU, POW, BNS I might (hopefully) recoup my losses or at least cut them considerably by this time next year.
For each of the names could you tell me if you think it's a good idea to punt now before further losses accumulate, or are there any that you think have a reasonable prospect of returning to their early to mid 2021 levels by the end of 2022.
I really will appreciate your thoughts and advice - feeling a little beaten up right now ...
