Q: Your Portfolio Analyzer tells me that I need more 'Healthcare" since I only have UNH and Well. Can you suggest an addition?

It also noted that I have zero consumer defensive. Can you suggest two for this sector.

A further note was being over weight in Canada.

Thanks again! Dan

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.
Thanks

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?

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.
