Investment Q&A

Not investment advice or solicitation to buy/sell securities. Do your own due diligence and/or consult an advisor.

Q: I am down on these stocks EGLX (-24%), AT (-28%), BRAG (-24%) and PINS (-23%).
These stocks are in a non-registered account.

I have two questions. First, are these stocks worth holding for a turnaround or just take the loss (and take advantage of the tax loss credit) and move on?

Second, if they are worth holding I might do a tax loss sell and buy after 30 days. I am not sure how to time that. Do it now or at the end of the year?

Thank you for your help and advice as always.

Q: I've had success buying good out-of-favor companies, especially in tax-loss season. In 2020, I loaded up on rate resent preferreds at very low prices (so the effective interest payments were good even if interest rates stayed low). This gave me optionality in case rates ever climbed. I also bought TOU and CVE when oil prices were extremely low.
This is for 5% of my portfolio, and is patient money. Suggestions?

Q: Hi Team,
I am holding the following stocks at a loss. BABA (-52%), MED (-30%), TT(-4%),EGLX (-33%), MG (-8%), SWKS (-20%), U (-1%), PINS (-33%).

My question is, should I continue to hold the line with all of these? Or are there any that stand out to you as being better off to sell and swap out with a different holding of which you suggest? Or any of these I should be selling, and adding to another one of these? I thought perhaps after yesterdays sell off there might be some moves I should be making. (Although the market is already recovering nicely today on alot of these names). Suggestions here would be appreciated. Thanks!

Q: Hi 5i,

I'm considering adding to my EGLX position. Risk tolerance is high and time horizon is 3-5 years (+). I currently have a small position (430 shares with ACB of $6.9) held inside my TFSA. Would you consider this a good time to add to this position? Has your outlook / conviction changed towards EGLX in the past few months? Are there any other growth stocks that you consider a good buy right now (especially with the recent pullback of tech stocks)? The sector doesn't have to be tech.

Alternatively, I'm considering picking up more TOI or NVEI (I have a strong conviction in both these two and have small positions of each inside my TFSA).

Thanks - love the service and can't recommend it enough to friends and colleagues!

Q: Hi what are the chances that any of these names will be going to the capital markets and issue more stock?
They are all doing very well,so they might be tempting to issue more stocks.
How would you rate those for stock as a buy right now?

Q: Hi,
I initiated small positions in EGLX and MRS a while back. Down 32% and 53% respectively so the small position is even smaller. Should I just be patient with these two? Or move the MRS portion to EGLX? Or vice versa? Or even getting out of them altogether and putting the funds in another name?
They are in my TFSA so no tax implications.
