Investment Q&A

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

Q: Last December I asked what price you would consider this to be really cheap. The answer was below 3 dollars. Today it is at one dollar and thirty five cents. I guess this could go below a dollar which would have been unthinkable last year. It is no fault of their own other than profit margins. Is there some reason that large institutions don't come in and buy this up at this price. Does risk change at this price somehow.

Q: I am looking for advice on how to handle the small cap growth stocks in my TFSA. I find it more difficult to sell a stock rather than to buy it as either greed or ignorance or dismissal of all the relative facts get it in the way. For example , I rode EGLX all the way to nearly $10.00 only to watch it fall to its present price of my initial cost of around $ 1.90. The market was strong, it recently listed in the US, ; things were great but then they weren’t. I need some non emotional, logical tools with which to make selling price decisions on these more volatile stocks. A suggestion of some technical measurements for these types of stocks would be helpful.

I have considered a stop loss formula of say a certain % increase would trigger a certain % stop loss order. For example at a 50% increase I would implement a sell order at 10% below current price or a 100% increase ( to be so lucky again) would trigger a sell order of 20 %. Being human I would probably kick myself if watching a 100% gain ( actually only 80% if I used this formula )go on to a 150 % gain, only to be stopped out at a much lower price !

Q: Hi,
I own EGLX, PLTR, PINS and U in my TFSA and all getting killed. Would you sell any to consolidate in 1 or 2 or sell them all and move to something else? Holding on is also an option. Looking forward to your thoughts.
Thanks for your great service.

Q: Hi 5i Team - Could you elaborate on the results of the voting at the recent AGM meeting of EGLX. Specifically how successful was Greywood, how many of the board members are now from Greywood and how might the new board be structured including the chair. Also any ideas on who the new CEO might be. In your opinion should the 'Greywood' influence be good for the company.

Q: Growth focused investor, high tolerance for volitility, trade very little, seems buy and hold works much better for me, except in the above mentioned stocks. I'm down 50% or more in them all. Stocks are held in either TFSA or RRSP. Considering getting rid of one or all, reentering LSPD? If you were selling, what stocks and what order?
