Q: Can you please rank the following cancer related stocks based from best to worst based on your understanding of which are currently under appreciated based on their potential to cure or prevent cancer? To put it another way, do any of them have technology that could become significantly larger businesses than they are today in treating or detecting cancer?
Please add one name that I have not listed that may have higher potential.

Q: Hi. I still like both companies (veev,gh) but am going to sell for tax loss reasons and that they total between them 3% only of my portfolio. Am looking to consolidate into a single health care stock to go along with MDT which I already own in my portfolio. I like my positions to be at least 3% and not two smaller positions. Any suggestions. I was thinking ILMN. If you like ILMN please let me know why and what sets them apart. Thanks

Q: I'm down about 17% in Guardant Health and the downward track since the peak a year ago does not look appealing. I've read the most recent comments on this stock and you seem to suggest that it might be worth hanging on to or possible even buying more.
In a case like this, the question for me is always:
1) Should I get out now before it goes any lower, or should I hang in and hope it recovers by 17% in the next year?
2) If I do sell it, what would I buy that has a better chance of increasing 17% in the next year?
I recognize, of course that you don't have a crystal ball, but you DO have your eye on the ball and that's what I depend on.

I am down even more on Crowdstrike (25%) and the same dilemma applies.

Your thoughts please and deduct points as appropriate.

Q: We have a small amount of investable dollars available that was gifted to us when our two children were born. They both already have RESPs and those are maxed out. Our own TFSAs are maxed out, and the RRSPs are nearly as well - but this is intended to be for them when they get older, not us. Any advice you can give other than model something after the growth portfolio and wait? Time is on our side. 10+ year outlook before we might try and access it.
