Q: Repligen is trading close to the 52-week low and would welcome your analysis of their recent operating performance and market potential looking forward.  Post-pandemic and mindful of competitors in the same space does their stock have any opportunity to excel in the coming year, and if held as a position in a long-term growth portfolio, could you please rank the appeal of Repligen in descending order versus your go-to favorites in the same general space.  Thanks kindly for your thoughts.

Q: I Just received a Notice of Pendency and Proposed Partial Settlement of Class Action for shareholder of Bioverative (Biogen spin off). I had 83 shares of BIVV. Can you please explain 1) is this a "legitimate" lawsuit and what exactly is the lawsuit about 2) reading the material i have a hard time understanding if I am automatically part of the potential settlement or do I need to do anything to participate? I never filled anything out so was surprised to see this arrive in the mail and finally 3) if I need to do anything is it worth my time and energy and if so, that action do I need to take.

Thank you for your guidance

Q: I just sold off my Biogen holding and am looking for a replacement within the healthcare sector. I held Biogen for over 3 years and exited with a nice return, but I have to say that I did not enjoy the wild ride and price swings as it seemed to trade solely on its new Alzheimer’s drug advancements and setbacks. So now I am looking to replace it with something a little more stable but still with the expectation of slow and steady growth. What would be your top 1 or 2 picks be today for both the US and Canada that might fit. I already own Savaria and XLV so something besides these.

Q: I hold these 2 US stocks in a well diversified CAN/US portfolio. They have not performed as well as many of their peers and I am wondering if they are "best of breed" and worth holding or if there are better opportunities for growth elsewhere. Could you please comment on the future prospects of these 2 stocks and if its best to keep them or redeploy the funds elsewhere. If redeploy, what would you recommend as replacements in the US, sector allocation aside with a focus on growth
