Q: Hello 5i,

When I look at a chart of WELL, I see that its momentum is not horrible but not good either. When I read 5i's responses to members, I see that his opinion is rather favorable about this company. My question is: If 5i had never had a position in WELL, would he consider initiating one now or would he wait until the momentum has improved?

Thank you

Q: Can you account for the recent drop in TMO and possibly also for its quick recovery.

Portfolio analytics call for more in my healthcare sector. Do you prefer ETFs or individual companies here?

Please recommend a few of your favourite quality long-term holds for both (more American than Canadian, but both if possible).

Thanks as always.

Q: WELL was $3.50 in August 2020 and its $3.55 today.

Reminds me a lot of GUD. IMHO 5i tends to be overly patient on some failed investments whereby selling them and moving on could make for a much better return.

So I have been as patient as I want to be with WELL. When I sell my shares of WELL, which I intend to do, what would be a good replacement that is well managed and has good potential growth in its future outlook?

And of course, has a proven management team.

Q: Some maintenance of my portfolio is long-overdue. I have been sitting on PBH, VEEV, and VZ which are all down about 30%. WELL is down about 50%, MG about 40%. Should I keep holding, or take the loss and pivot to something else? These are the worst performers, overall the entire portfolio is up 20% this year. Many thanks for your assistance.

Q: Hi Peter, I'm looking at the WELL.TO chart and see that three times over the past half year there has been a dramatic spike in share price followed by an immediate and equally dramatic sell-off taking the stock lower than the pre-spike level. I know you don't have a crystal ball but you do have a lot of experience with Canadian small/micro caps and was wondering how you interpret this price action. Is it people who lost on the stock and are waiting to recoup some of there losses?

Do you still consider this a undervalued small cap stock? Technically, it is a basket case.

Q: I have been holding Well for a while now and while dissapointed in the share price I am not dissapointed with the financial results. Allways they could be better but I felt the company is moving in the right direction. I'm struggling with "market sentiment" and how to include this in my investment decisions.
It feels like if I could get a handle on this I could get in front of a stocks ups and downs and adjust my position accordingly.
I'm not expecting a definitive answere but just some advice how to value and navigate "market sentiment." Thanks John

Q: Good evening,

I currently own VMD, VHI, LLY, and WELL. I'm considering a consolidation down to three of the four stocks. For a five-year hold, how might you rank these in terms of overall growth potential and risk? Thanks, Brad

Q: Hello, Would you have 4 top picks in either of these sectors (industrials, consumer staples, consumer discretionary or health care). I am looking for large caps trading on the TSX with good long term potential. Thank you.

Q: Hi,
I have been currently holding these for awhile and have done well on them, other than maybe WELL, which has been lagging a bit lately. Here are my allocations: WELL (1.7%), SLF (2%), GSY (3.5%) and NVDA (3.8%).

Recently in the last few months, I trimmed some NVDA and bought some VRT (1%) and SMCI (1%). For a growth investor, how would you rank these 3 stocks going forward? Would you continue to trim and buy these smaller cap higher growth names. With the run that they've had, I've been a little more cautious of a slowdown.

Also with these other names I'm holding, I'm contemplating trimming or completely switching to higher growth and better quality names with better runway for growth. What are your thoughts? Trim, add or switch? For example, does it make sense to trim a 3.0% position into two names that are only 1.5%? I'm against diworsification. Thank you!

1. WELL to VHI
2. SLF to IFC
3. GSY to PRL

Q: I am attracted to long term holdings. Been watching WELL hammering on technical support of about $3.65 for weeks now. I'm thinking of pulling the trigger.

Looking at their growing revenue and P/S multiple, those numbers look quite good for a small cap. Is there a better metric for this particular company? What do you think is the biggest negative that investors see in this stock at the moment?

Q: A number of these companies have done very well recently while others have not. Could you rate these as Buy/Hold/Sell and for those you consider a buy, could you provide what you feel is a good entry point.

Thank you
