Q: Hi Peter,

I have been a big fan of the FAANGM group and have been fortunate to invest in all of these companies.

What is your ranking over the next three to five years of the above group of stocks from a risk-return perspective?

Q: Hello. A forced choice request. I have been tracking these 6 captionally noted US stocks for some time. At the moment I have capital to invest in three new positions. My interest is in growth, and I'm planning to hold for min 5 to max 10 years. Clearly, I'm an investor and not a trader. From this list, which 3 stocks would you anticipate might hold the best prospects for continued growth over that time span. Thanks!

Q: The markets pre-COVID were rising at a reasonable rate year to year, with the odd market downturn. Since March/April 2020 the markets have shot up and stocks are trading at much higher multiples than pre-COVID. Eventually, reality may kick-in. There are many companies trading at very high evaluations. If you look at the overall market (i.e. Nasdaq) you see an exponential growth curve for the past 18 months, definitely not sustainable and possibly overpriced.? I still buy stocks but sometimes feel that if the market turns around, it could be years for it to come back. (I am more concerned about companies such as SHOP, NVEI, TTD, LSPD, NVDA, TOI, UPST, ... all of which are great companies but if we overpay, payback could be much more than 5 years.) I thought same about Netflix, I was totally wrong and missed out on one of the biggest lifetime opportunities BUT there must be a point where the price is definitely too high. Are we overpaying? Will we regret this at some point? Your thoughts? Thanks.

Q: Hello Peter

I sold recently almost 50% of my US stocks:ADBE,AMZN,TEAM,NFLX,MA & MSFT from my unregstr. acct. and I do not want to keep cash and I do not want to buy US stocks.

Please provide me with idea of 5 Canadian stocks that are reasonably safe and be kept for 2 to 3 years, or 2 Canadian stocks very safe with little growth.

Q: After its earnings release, would you consider NFLX is now close to the status of a mature enterprise? Still worthy of above-average multiples , but with a P/E that could be justifiable around 25, and likely not todayís sky-high multiples.

1. What is your thinking on this, after last nightís results? Would you be of the mind that NFLX share price will from now rise very modestly ,or even remain flattish, over the next 3 to 5 years?
2. At the time of sending this question, I donít yet see any updates of analyst ratings but perhaps they will be available at time of your answer. Post latest results what do you see as PEG, forward P/E and, if available, growth/contraction in global revenues?
3. Do you think todayís sell off in NFLX is an opportunity to add? Would you top up on a half position, or liquidate?

Your opinions have always been valuable and most helpful. Thank you.

Q: Hi Peter and Staff

Several months ago I bought PINS when you had it as a BNN top pick - after initial gains like many tech related companies it has declined

Taxes are not an issue itís in a registered account , neither are $9.99 fees

Would you suggest a switch to either NFLX or ROKU within communication sector or stay the course

Thanks for all you do

Q: Friday messy fun question, please take it lightly. I would like to start reducing the oil companies I bought in April last year. They've done incredibly well, but now I would like to increase my tech growth stocks by opening 1 or 2 new positions. I currently own GOOG, DND, U, CRWD, RDFN, ROKU, VEEV, PINS, and SQ. They have done well under your recommendations even with the recent pullbacks. As no one can time the markets, I am not willing to wait for a surprise interest hike as it is part of a locked-in RSP. It would be a 10+ hold. 1) Without considering size, could you please rank your favourite top 5 companies addressed in this question as of today in terms of strong balance sheet & steady growth potential over time (even in an interest hike environment). 2) Could you please give a brief explanation for the #1 pick only. Thank you very much as always!

Q: TECH Just came across this new ETF. Can you give me your opinion on investing now or wait. Don't see how it can't succeed with these names.

Q: Would you say the slide in shares of NFLX post-earnings today is overdone? I think it is the only FANG member that has rested on its laurel this calendar year whilst other members of that club have whizzed by (with the possible exception of AAPL) . At the now reduced price, down some 10% I think , is NFLX now at a price that one may top up a one-third already held?

If you have an *enthusiastic* yes, please advise what you see for the following metrics: ROE, PEG and ROCIó all based on the latest financials please.

Q: Hi 5i
In the content space would you expect Disney or Netflix to outperform the other ? I'm leaning towards DIS for the content + 'everything else' that DIS has to offer - or has it recovered sufficiently and should I reign in my expectations ?
Expecting a 2-4 year hold, longer if all goes well.
