Q: As of today, what would be your top 10 most stable Canadian companies, or ETF's, to invest in. Stable meaning those best able to ride out any market or economic downturn. Dividends are always nice but not essential. Thanks as always.

Q: Hi Team,
Three part question. Firstly, I know as professionals you do not recommend “winners” climbing to over a certain % of ones Portfolio. However, if early investors in Apple or shopify for example would of bailed ; some would not be millionaires now. Or in some cases , billionaires where the CEO’s are holding most their wealth in their company stock. How can one hope to land that “life changing trade”(1000% or more) if one keeps trimming eternal winners ? Does it not make sense if a person finds that “winning company” to keep holding of goals are set high? GSY one of those stocks, if you were to choose the likelihood of a solid company with good prospects, to choose to be overweight in and aim for that life changing 1000% move over a 10 yr or so period? I ask this company specifically because I am overweight this company and this is my goal. (Up over 200% so far and metrics still make this stock look cheap to me)

Thirdly… if you were to speculate a few different companies, either US or Cnd as your “best guess’s” so to speak of having the likelihood of producing 1000% gains over the next 10yrs or so; what would they be? Thanks for your input and deduct credits as you see fit. Thanks

Q: Hi Team,
I was looking at buying some NVEI. However, I am already heavy tech in general. If I were to buy some shares I would need to sell something to do this. The stocks that I already hold that would consider trimming to buy shares in NVEI would be: LSPD, WELL, SQ, MITK. Do you consider NVEI as having more long term potential than any of the other 4 mentioned? If so, which one of the 4 would you recommend trimming to buy some NVEI? Thanks

Q: I am considering selling U (down 24% in my TFSA) and replacing it with one of the following: WELL, NVEI, DOCU, MED, or APPS. Please rank in order of preference if purchased today. Can I assume all of the above stocks would likely have higher rates of growth than U and that the sale of U would thus be justified?

Thank you.

Q: As a 20 year-old, can you suggest 6 high risk/high reward Canadian or US stocks for part of my investments (I would look to buy on dips)? Would you recommend a portion invested in cryptocurrencies or is this just really gambling with the high volatility? I have a 5-year time line.
Thank you!!

Q: How would you rank the following companies (WELL, REAL, ENGH, TOI, FLGT, ABCL) in terms of potential growth over next 3-5 years ? Are they any that you would not be keen on? If so could you provide an alternative or two?

Q: Regarding Tak's question about selling QIPT at a loss and buying WELL. There are QIPT warrants exerciseable at CAD $6.40 up to June 29th. It is possible that warrant holders have been shorting the stock, resulting in the recent price deterioration. Since the warrant expiry is so close, it might be worth waiting until early July to see if the share price rebounds absent the short pressure. I own both and am waiting until July before making a decision to hold or sell QIPT.

Q: Hi guys, thanks for the excellent service. Generally TFSA is the place for high growth but my highest growth has been in my RRSP. Is there any compelling reason I should sell anything in RRSP and rebuy in TFSA (e.g., NVDA)? I realize I will be taxed on RRSP withdrawals while TFSA withdrawals are tax-free - but - my RRSP has a lot more cash than my TFSA so there isn't room to move all my growthy stuff over. Because of the relative size of RRSP to TFSA, if I were to do equal weighting of all stocks, I'd only have 4 different stocks in my TFSA, which perhaps is fine? Are there any obvious adjustments that you would make to the following:

XQQ 13.68%
VXC 12.03%
NVDA 7.64%
AAPL 6.70%
JPM 4.73%
BNS 4.52%
GOOG 4.32%
ENB 4.13%
MSFT 3.98%
AMZN 3.86%
RTX 3.51%
COST 3.42%
PG 3.11%
DIS 2.82%
CASH 1.32%

GSY 5.28%
CRWD 3.31%
VEEV 2.50%
ROKU 2.44%
SHOP 2.26%
WELL 0.85%
XBC 1.08%

LSPD 0.79%
BYD 0.76%

SLF 0.51%
T 0.42%

Q: Looking at adding to my TFSA portfolio (junior investor - not playing with a ton of cash). I’ve had my eye on WELL for a few months and I’m looking to get in because of your recommendations. What would you say is a good price to buy at?

Also, could you rank ENB, ARX.TO, and SU.TO? Looking at enbridge alternatives, but maybe ENB is the best best way to go?

Would you prefer SHOP or LSPD.TO?

Out of all the above companies (WELL, SHOP, SU, ARX, LSPD, ENB), what order would you buy in?

Comfortable with a bit of risk.

Thanks for all you do!
