Q: Have some cash in my US $ portfolio and am considering these 6 stocks.

1) Are there any that you would want to buy at this time ? If so, would you consider them primarily to be a shorter time hold to take advantage of near term bounce, or do you see them as having the potential for both short and long term strength ?
2) Of those you would want to buy – if any - could you rank the order in which you would buy and acceptable price range.
As always, thank you .

Q: Good day team, I was wondering if you could provide some growth stocks either in the US and Can that have very little to no debt.

Q: About 25% of our portfolio is in US stocks - very tech heavy (APPS, CRWD, MSFT, MTTR, NVDA, QCOM, TEAM, U) with only XYL as a non-tech holding. I would like to add GOOG, BKNG but would prefer not to transfer more CD$ to US just at the moment. Would appreciate your thoughts on cashing my XYL (down about 10%) in order to buy GOOG ?
Also, my NVDA and QCOM are at about 4.5% each of total CD/US $ portfolio, with good profit. Would you trim a bit of both to invest in BKNG or leave well enough alone for now !
As always, many thanks.

Looking for stocks that you already like that have reasonably liquid options (I know harder in CAD) and you think have excellent bounce back potential and wouldn't mind owning for 2-3 years. Thanks
