Q: On CNBC on Friday Tom Lee disclosed these 20 as his "Epicentre Stock Portfolio" and opined that the bottom is in. He seems to be quite revered and apparently his calls have been more correct than not. Could you list your best seven from this list that you would buy today in order. Any other comment of course welcomed as well - Ken

Q: I have similar weightings of MDB, DOCU, PAYC, CRWD, GH, NET, and TWLO in my US RRSP account. As per the recent report recommendation from 5i, I would like to rotate some of my lesser quality stocks into strong value stocks or ETFs. Can you suggest 2 of 3 of the above that you would recommend I reduce or sell out and what strong value plays would make sense to backfill them with? Am I interpreting the guidance of the report correctly? Thanks!!

Q: Hi 5i team,
My nephew turned 18 last year and has now 11K in his TFSA ready to invest.
What would be your suggestion (s). It can be a mix of CDN and USD stocks/ETFs.
Obviously, it would be several years before needing any of the money so some risk can be taken.

Q: I am looking to rebalance my non-registered portfolio, which will mean taking capital gains and transfer to my TFSA. Today, my position is about equal in RY, BMO and CNR.
I would like to reinvest the cash from these capital gains in Tech and Health sectors from 5i's balanced portfolio. I do not have either sector in my TFSA today.
Which of the 3 non-registered stocks would you suggest selling?
What would you recommend buying for TFSA?

Q: HI 5i Team,
In my USD account I hold REGN and ABBV @ 3.5%. I am considering adding ALXN growth. What is your opinion of this stock? If not this then any alternative? Dividends are not a priority.
Over the last 3 year of my membership, have immensely benefitted from your advice. Keep up the good work.

Q: Hi Peter, Ryan and Team,
Thank you for the service that you provide, it's been invaluable.
I currently have held JPM for the last few years and it's effectively been a net gain of zero. I think it might be time to move on for a bit and perhaps look to buy back at a later date. We already hold VEEV, AYX, TEAM, DOCU, TTD, NVDA, and QCOM, so I'm looking for a non-tech suggestion as to where to move. I'm hoping that you could provide a list of 2-3 quickly growing large(ish) US companies that ideally are near debt free and meet this criteria.
Thank you again,

Q: I have very little healthcare in my portfolio and also need to diversify geographically. There are so many opinions on what types of healthcare to invest in (drugs, medical devices (knees, hips), insurance, pharmacies, etc.) that I am struggling to jump in. What would be your top three healthcare related choices (outside Canada) to invest in for the long term.

Thank you for the great service you provide

Q: Morning 5i,
I'm looking to get my US allocation in my portfolio up to ~40% in the Healthcare, Industrials, and Tech sectors. I have a VERY long time frame, but I'm interested in businesses that have aggressive/high growth in the IMMEDIATE to 2 year timeframe.

Could you please rank the names below in terms of highest short-term growth potential coming out of a COVID world (reopening, new normal).

And if possible, are there any US names that trump these selections instead? Please take as many question credits as required:

Healthcare: VEEV, AMGN, REGN
Industrials: ROP, RTX
