Q: I always kick myself when I come to realize a missed opportunity and tell myself that next time, i'll recognize the trend and take advantage of it.

Q: Hi Peter,

Hopefully it won't time out (if that's the problem)....I saved the question and I just did a copy and paste.

Hi Peter,
I asked if you got my question sent on May 11 and 5i responded saying you didn't get it an to re-send it is:

Regarding Timour's question on CBDC's posted the 11th May, I get the impression the response seems "positive" on CBDC's. I was a bit surprised that their was no mention of how this would affect each and everyone of us with the retail CBDC's. The idea is to get rid of cash completely, which would give central banks absolute control of the money of each individual, not me saying that, here's a 57 sec. video from the top guy of the BIS (a must watch):

If an individual can ONLY open an account at the central bank of his/her country, then we would be at the mercy of the rules and regulations of that central bank and no other bank to go to because there won't be any. Wouldn't that be a complete monopoly? This is a very serious matter that everyone should know about....nothing like this has ever been done.

Please check these links....they are opinions of very knowledgeable people:

In this link please listen to at least the 2nd. 2:50 min. video:

I know there's a lot of links, but please have a look at rush :)

Would really appreciate your comments,

Thank you!

Q: Hi, I have a 2.5% position in SCHW (down 25%) and am looking to sell while keeping exposure to the financial sector.

MKTX and CME score highly on my evaluations and others listed are pretty decent too. Curious on your thoughts on a suitable, safe replacement.

This is in my LIRA and I'm looking to hold for 10+ years (was also the case for SCHW, but I'm concerned wrt their exposure from their long term bonds).

Q: Hi 5i, May I pls have your thoughts on latest results and if you would continue to hold or upgrade.

I have few other dogs, maybe LGO also, that I'm looking to consolidate into either GOOG, META, DIS, PYPL or AMZN. Which 2 or 3 would be your preferred choices? PYPL worries me a bit, seems other fintec companies might be eating their lunch. DIS is interesting given old CEO is back and cost cutting the company. Pls give your pros/cons when ranking. Thx for your great advice!

Q: I'm looking to sell some of my Lightspeed positions and looking for an alternative in the same space.

- I have a huge loss with LSPD, and looking for best proxy to recoup some losses going forward...

- Not interested in 5+ year investment, as too much can change...

- I'm looking for a recommendation of a candidate that has great prospects 1-2 years, 3 max

- I'm open to any suggestions & ideas other than the companies I listed in my question as well

Q: Hi 5i Team,

Iím down on all the above stocks as follows CRWD Down 36%, ETSY down 40%, PINS down 52%, PYPL down 64%, SQ down 72% and U down 77%.

With a 2 to 3 year horizon which of these are worth holding and which once I should sell and can you suggest US replacements and not necessarily in the same asset class. Just good stable companies that have good growth potential to outperform the indexes.

Take as many credits as you feel necessary.
