Q: Bob the builder is back/staying and now seems to be wanting to turn into Bob the seller. Do you like the strategy and think the sum of the parts is worth significantly more? How does Disney look on a forward P/E and PEG basis? At what price do you think this is an excellent opportunity for a long-term hold? Thanks

Q: Hi

Sold both BCE and T prior to them dropping.

I am now under weight in communications by 3.79%.

Do I buy them back or would I be better off with VOX as my US holdings are doing better than my Canadian holdings over all.

Thank you

Q: What is your opinion on this company? Are they in the midst of a turnaround? I read somewhere that the CEO has stock options that won't vest until the stock reaches 36 per share. Does this sound like motivation to get the house in order?

Q: I was interrupted during my buy of ROKU last Thursday when it was below $50 and when I next looked it was $56! Ouch. I see it has earnings on Feb 15. I know you recommend buying for long term and not waiting for earnings, but I feel like it could go either way here, and a 10% rise this week is significant - do you have a recommendation regarding buying before or after in this case? Thanks!

Q: I bought Netflix after the big drop in 2022 and have since sold a half position after a nice gain. In terms of its future, everything I read is about the ad-supported lower-priced tier. However there is almost nothing about the password crackdown that is supposedly happening early 2023. Surely this would have a more meaningful impact on the bottom line... I personally know MANY people that are sharing an account (myself included!!) that will ultimately subscribe when they are "kicked out".
Question 1: Has Netflix released any statistics about their estimates for how many people are "piggybacking" off another account and that they believe will sign up after the password-sharing crackdown?
Question 2: Thoughts on future growth potential?

Take credits as appropriate, thanks in advance.

Q: I currently have the following positions in the "FAANG" stocks: GOOGL (5%), MSFT and META (each less than 2%), AAPL (less than 1%).

Not interested in NFLX since I already have positions in DIS and ROKU, but I'm open to AMZN (although I have a small position in SHOP, less than 2%).

I want to reduce the number of stocks I own, so I'm looking to consolidate my FAANG positions. In what order would you rank the FAANG stocks at today's prices for potential future returns?

I have a long time horizon (decades) and a very diversified portfolio, so not worried about short-term declines in share price.

Q: I hold the above stocks in my Unregistered,TFSA,and RRIF accounts. I understand that as of January 1, 2023, the IRS will require a 10% withholding tax when Canadian residents sell US stocks. Does this rule apply to sell any of the above mentioned my stocks ?

2) If I sell above Stocks before end of 2022, will I avoid paying new IRS 2023 10% withholding tax?

Q: I have purchased the above US stocks in the last 6 months. AMZN is down 15%, CRWD is down 27% and LNTH is down 25%. The rest are in the green. AMZN position size is twice as large as CRWD and LNTH. I have $10,000 more to deploy. Would you do a 33% split on the 3 or what are your thoughts on this?

Q: I sold ROKU at the end of Sept to harvest a tax loss and bought NFLX in its stead. Fast forward a month and ROKU is about what I sold it for while NFLX is up about 20% (thanks for the suggestion!)

My question is in two parts. First, does ROKU, in your opinion, still represent a stock with a better longer-term upside than NFLX meaning I should continue with the original plan to sell NFLX and repurchase ROKU?

Second, if the answer to the above is yes, do you think it is best to repurchase ROKU in a month or so as I suspect it will be a target for tax loss selling or might it be best to wait until the new year so as to defer my cap gain on NFLX with the expectation that ROKU likely hasn't appreciated much in the meantime?

Appreciate your insight.

Q: Hi,
Do you agree with Mr. Ross Healy that NFLX is the only FAANG stock worth dipping into? Would you be a "trader" of this stock? Do you see the potential for a bounce?
Feel free to share your "musings"!
