Q: What are a few smaller/aggressive growth-oriented names in Canada and the US that you think have the potential to work out quite well w/ a 5+ year timeframe, and that are not too likely to go out of business in a prolonged recession?

Q: hi 5i. I usually like to sell in times like these, to lock in the capital loss. I pair trade immediately after the sell, to stay invested, usually. the list is of my losers right now. are there any on the list you would not sell now and pair trade? and, can you provide a recommendation for each for another stock to pair trade with ( I am thinking hut8 for hive, perhaps nuvei for something? dsg for something? or maybe one name can replace 1 or more of the names. I would then most likely buy back the stocks I sold after the month of waiting is over, to lock in the losses. your thoughts/expertise is always appreciated. cheers, chris

Q: It's really hard to sit on my hands during this type of market but I am(so far). My question is about stocks that I have held that are now only 0.5% positions(at, lspd, eglx, well) and I am also down quite a bit on several others. I don't think I own any (weeds) but .5%-1% position sizes won't contribute much on a rebound. Do I consolidate here or revisited in a few months.

Thanks again.

Q: A question earlier this year was what price would you consider this really cheap. You said anything below 3. Today it is close to 2 and may go below it this week. That said do you think it is a good time to sell for a tax loss. My worry is any good news would make this pop. Perhaps I'm wrong though and in this environment barely anything will make that happen. Historically what is more likely.

Q: I have these three stocks in my margin account currently at a loss. When does it make sense to realize the loss for tax loss selling and buy another proxy. I know most of tax loss selling usually happens later in the year, but does it ever make sense to do it earlier in the year if the stock is down? What would be good proxies for EGLX, DIS and APPS? Thanks!

Q: I bought the above stocks in my Margin account last year as a basket of small caps and I'm down on all so wondering at this point if you would bring any of them back to original weighting, sell or hold with a short reason why. Medium to high risk, long term growth investor.

Thanks in advance. Please deduct credits as you see fit.

Q: Can I get your top picks for Small and Mid sized Canadian Growth Tech stocks for the next 12 months. Also, should we mind witch exchange these stocks are on?

Q: It's clear that when one invests in small caps it's important to buy a basket to protect oneself from those that might not do well. Assuming one currently has no small caps in his portfolio, I wonder what that basket would look like. Taking into consideration all of the noise in our current market and prospects for the future, what six companies would you buy today to build that basket of small caps.

Q: Hi 5i Team - I hold shares in Enthusiast Gaming. Besides continuing to hold I would like to add another stock in the same space. I am looking to add Brag and Penn. Do you have a preference over these two. Also do have any other recommendations in the gaming and/or e-sports space, especially in the small and mid caps. Thanks.

Q: The above companies have all fallen below 1.5% of my portfolio and I am looking to do some cleaning up. Could I get an add/sell/hold recommendation on them please?
Thank you

Q: Up until now, I have only part full or nearly full positions in a stock while trying to keep my total number of stocks under 30 in number. However, I am now considering taking a slightly different approach and buying a basket of some beaten-up stocks, likely from those noted above.

Since I am new to this strategy, my question is, what would you consider to be a useful percentage to devote to a stock that will allow for meaningful gains while limited individual risk? I'm thinking 1% is too little, 1.5% might be enough and certainly no more than 2%.

Your insight is appreciated.
