Income value investor with some growth stocks. Just received 16 shares of OGN. At 75 years I don't think I want to wait for "maybe" some growth. No dividend either. I would just sell them and by a few more MRK. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

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

Q: These are the US holdings in my RSP. All have done well except for SYK down about 8% with a limited outlook for the rest of 2020 based on the Covid pandemic. Regardless of sector weighting, what are your favorite 2 or 3 US equities for growth over the next 5 years? I'm okay with a moderate risk.
Thanks in advance,

Q: I recently asked a question regarding switching strategy from etf to individual stocks and i appreciate your answer very much. My question was generated by the response that you gave to James regarding investing in a diversified portfolio. At that time you gave him the follwoing names: TEAM, MSFT, GOOG, ROP, PG, BIIB, VZ, SBUX, COST, JPM.

Just a followup clarification on that suggestion. I wonder, because of the tax advantage for Canadian dividends and the predominance in the TSX of Banks and Telecoms, whether one might be better to replace VZ and JPM by Canadian names? I know that the question asked, I think, specifically for US names. But, just wondering if one held both Canadian and US, whether this might be better? Also, do you think that say, ten like this, is enough diversification on the US side?
