Q: I own the following in my US-denominated TFSA:

ADBE, DAL, FIVE, PYPL, PAYC, TOL, SLQT, GOOG, AL

The goal of this account is high-conviction, long-term growth strategy, focused on eight US equities, with a risk profile somewhere in between that of your Balanced and Growth portfolios.

A) If I had to sell one of the 9 holdings listed, which should it be?

B) Are there any others that should be sold in light of the investment goal stated?

C) Which of these should I add to, if any, or, which new postition should I consider (US market only) that would complement the existing positions well? Please note that I am already fully-weighted/over-weighted in FIVE, GOOG, PYPL, and PAYC.

Thank you. Please deduct the appropriate number of credits as needed.

Q: Retired I am a growth inclined investor. I have AAPL and PYPL in my taxable account for over a year and have bought and sold AAPL twice in the past 5 years. AAPL has been very good to me. The current evaluation I find is expensive. There would be a tax impact but I have no other choice but to sell either PYPL or AAPL to make room for APPS. Would you make the switch or not and if so, which security would you sell?

Thank you for your very helpful service.

Q: People who are very close to the market having connections that I don't have. Here are examples: PINS - in May it was $50 and up until recently it was up as high as $82, then it started selling off and eventually quickly plummeted below $60. AMAZON - this was not doing much most of the year by July it was at $3760, a short time latter it was $3300. PINS started selling off fairly rapidly once it hit the low $80's. I think some people knew that the writing was on the wall for this stock. In the case of Amazon, since it wasn't doing much anyway - it sold off rapidly over a short period of time down to $3300 - again I have the same feeling as I have with PINS. PAY PAL had a massive sell-off and ROKU in July at one time in July was $490 plus and now it is down over $100 and seems to continue to fall I wish I had got out when it reached the $500 value. Would you say these lucky people who got out at the high price are well sophisticated traders or have a lot of connections? Your opinion. Thank you.

Q: With recent earnings releases for the above companies completed did anything specifically surprise you or excite you about their futures more so then before? Specifically Microsoft PayPal visa and Facebook.

For Google, it’s revenue growth was massive (68%) for a company it’s size and YouTube contributing almost the same revenue this quarter as Netflix was crazy to me. With ads growth via search not going away and cloud being a big focus for them I don’t see many things stopping it…
What do you see as the biggest risk for it specifically other then the big scary Antitrust breakup?

Q: Hello,
What are your thoughts on Nvei as a long term hold and what are the estimates on its next earnings, and would you know the date of the release? Is Square and Paypal its closest competitors? Any idea why Cielo Waste Solutions is dropping? Do you think it is due to management change? Thanks very much.
