Investment Q&A

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

Q: I know you guys try to answer exactly the question that was asked, which is good. However, I was surprised to see BB in a recent answer to your favourite Canadian companies that offer disruptive technology (AI, quantum, other). In the past, you were always negative on BB for its poor earnings record and shrinking revenue base, etc. Are you getting more positive on BBs growth prospects or perhaps there are not that many Canadian companies to satisfy the question? Also, what would be your top 5 U.S. disruptive names, where the pickings are a lot thicker?

Q: I read an article last night talking about if you had purchased AAPL stock on it's IPO 42 years ago at 22$ and invested 10G at that time and held until now the value not including the small div they pay would be roughly 14Million$ after all the splits your share count went from 400+ to over 100,000+ shares.. I know it is a tough call and this is more of a fun exercise but could you name a few companys/stocks that one day may return something like this over 30-40 year time block Canadian or USA..

Q: I have a significant amount of cash to invest. I would like to allocate to some very high-quality stocks across various industries that can be bought and held for a long period of time so they can compound. If you could pick 10 companies that meet this criteria, what would they be? I was thinking about BAM, MSFT, V, COST, CP, UNH, HD, JNJ, GOOG, BRK.b but am open to suggestions or changes to this list. No banks or energy please.

Q: I bought NVIDIA years ago and have been considering trimming as Im overweight, and now want to take advantage of stocks that have recently dropped. I am a long term investor focused on growth with medium-high risk, what 3-4 stocks Canadian and U.S. do you recommend to help compliment my holdings? My US holdings are GOOG, COST, ISRG, V and my CAD tech holdings are CSU, TOI, KXS, and STC.

Q: ISRG is now under $200/share. I thought I would add to it if it fell below $200, and now that it has I am not sure if I should average down. I am down 40% already.

Why should I NOT average down at this time?

What price would you consider adding to this stock?

In this market many growth stocks have fallen considerably. I know you don't like averaging down, but at some point you will have to unless you have owned growthy stocks for 3 to 5 years then you are still positive.

Q: Do you have three or four names in the medical equipment sector that you expect will do well this coming year.?

Read Answer Asked by Mike on May 24, 2022

Q: I think I may have timed out before submitting this question earlier.

I wanted to know your views on swapping DHR for ISRG in my health care allocation, which currently includes SYK and WELL. I know you like ISRG today, perhaps more than you did a couple of years ago when you had concerns about their business in China. Is China a significant part of their business? And your DHR concerns seem centred on their higher levels of debt which are being paid down.

I have done well with DHR but I am wondering if ISRG's growth profile is considered higher without taking on a significant increase in risk. Or would one of my other holdings be a better swap? Or is "do nothing" the best course?

Appreciate your insight.

Paul F.

Q: Dear Peter and Ryan.

I allocated almost same dollar amount in Meta (FB) (formerly known as Facebook), Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL), Alphabet (GOOG), NVDA and others. I invested a bit heavily in tech stocks and got hammered. I was disappointed in the business model of Meta lately. Today after trading hours, Meta released earnings and the price jumped. I think this may be a good opportunity to sell tomorrow and switch to some non-tech sectors. How do you think? What one or two names would you recommend to invest now to diversify away from high growth stocks?

Thank you,
