Q: Over the last couple of months and as a result of comments made here I have started positions in the above five companies with funds allocated to higher growth potential/higher potential volatility etc.

Four of the five have done very well so thank you. In keeping with your philosophy of pulling the weeds and watering the flowers I have a couple of questions:

1) Would you sell ESTC at this point in time and realocate the funds to one of the four flowers or to a "new" high reward potential investment you would suggest?

2) The ESTC issue aside, would you be adding to any of these flowers at this point in time and in which order?

Thanks for guidance over these last number of years,

Q: You recommended about a month ago the above stocks
Would you still purchase these and can you rank them in order of which to buy first?
ESTC seems to have fallen a lot- is it still a buy?
Thank you

Q: Wealthsimple approached me with an 0.5% cash offer on the totality of my investments if i moved my accounts with them. The accounts - Cash non reg, + TFSA + RRSP are being transferred in kind. They tell me that they ELASTIC N V ORDINARY SHARES (in my RRSP) cannot be held at wealthsimple. I either have to liquidate the shares and maintain the transfer, or leave the shares in my RRSP at my current institution (investorline)

The ESTC shares are down 20% in my RRSP. so can't harvest a loss.

How would you proceed? If you decide to sell the shares, what would you move into? I am very tech heavy, but enjoy the risk and the rich rewards that come with being tech heavy,

If replacing, i was looking at some securities that took big hits recently AMD, LULU.

Any compelling ideas? Please advise, Thank you.

Q: Good afternoon, Just wondering if your conviction for Elastic N.V. is still as high as it was several weeks ago? Since the drop following the recent earnings report, ESTC hasn't really participated much in any of the tech rallies. I'm down about 11% and wondering if I should be patient, or consider selling and adding to other high conviction picks already owned, such as NXT, VRT or AXON? Thanks. Brad

Q: Hi 5i,

While looking into the stock, I found that it has very high stock based compensation. This seems quite concerning to me. I know you like the stock, so is it something that is justified because of its growth?

Q: Hello 5i,

Thank you for taking time to answer so many questions on top stocks to own or purchase. We read through questions on ranking popular stocks but we were not able to formulate a priority list of CDN and US small cap stocks, especially with so many rising quickly in the last couple of months.

Based on current valuations, risk, growth potential, and management, in what order would you purchase the stocks below for a 2-5 year hold? If there are too many stocks, can you please list your top 10 or 12 in priority from the list?


Thank you

Q: My tech stocks have had a great run and it's time to trim as they are now about 33% of my portfolio. Can you please rank the above stocks along with SMCI (watching for a pullback in that one). I also have GOOG and AMZN. Do you think they are too closely related as well?
