Q: Hi Team,
What's your thoughts on Skyworks earnings? Stock is having a negative reaction. This one amazes me and the valuation is so much cheaper compared to most chip names. Why the constant negativity on it? Should a person be selling it for something else? Perhaps add to NVDA? Or Shop? Also...should a person be holding PINS, or swap out for some beat down FB? Thanks!

Q: Hi Team,
I am an aggressive investor, which paid off lovely in 2020, but now am being crushed. I hold the following stocks (with weightings in brackets) in total in my brokerage accounts. Could you have a quick look and tell me how this basket looks "In general"? And if you see this basket doing well over the longer term (say 5-10yr hold), pointing out any suggested changes you would make, if any are "sells" or worth switching out. Note that if I sell any GSY it would incur tax (the weighting is large because the position has grown and have been a firm believer in the company as its valuation still looks cheap and am collecting a nice div off it as well). I am 42yrs old so retirement is a ways away and my goal is maximum returns with reasonable risk until retirement. Please deduct credits as required. Thanks

Q: I'm interested in investing in 5G stocks. I sold my Keysight Technologies (KEYS) shares and would like to reinvest in the company. How would you rate KEYS at the current price and for the longer term? What are the other few other 5G companies and ETFs you would recommend to invest?

What do you think of CIEN (Ciena) stock which I own? Is it a very good stock with strong growth to hold for a long time? How would you rate CIEN with its major competitors? Which two or three companies (major competitors) you like in the same field?

Thank you.

Q: Hi Team,
What's your current views of MED and SWKS? I have been underwater pretty much on both these I bought them. Should I continue to hold or is there other stocks I should be replacing these with instead that stand out as screaming buys as of today? I particularly don't understand the weakness of SWKS. From what I can see it trades much cheaper valuation than most chips stocks, has good growth, has a partnership with Apple (which I know some view as a negative), is in the 5G business as well which should be a highly growing sector. The lack of interest is a bit confusing. Would it be a takeover target? You would think if chips are so hard to come buy perhaps apple would just buy them with their pocket change one day to bolster their supply chain? Thoughts? Thanks

Q: Given the recent run up in certain semi conductor and chip stocks, would it be prudent to use an ETF such as SMH to better diversify risk right now if only one position available in a portfolio? Or, going the individual stock route, how would you rank the following in a moderate risk portfolio QCom, AVGO, TXN, NVID, AMD, SWKS, INTC?

Q: Hi Team,
I am holding the following stocks at a loss. BABA (-52%), MED (-30%), TT(-4%),EGLX (-33%), MG (-8%), SWKS (-20%), U (-1%), PINS (-33%).

My question is, should I continue to hold the line with all of these? Or are there any that stand out to you as being better off to sell and swap out with a different holding of which you suggest? Or any of these I should be selling, and adding to another one of these? I thought perhaps after yesterdays sell off there might be some moves I should be making. (Although the market is already recovering nicely today on alot of these names). Suggestions here would be appreciated. Thanks!

Q: I invested in SWKS in tax-deferred account for potential gain in 5G (and perhaps 6G in future). I have two concerns: (1) AAPL accounts for a whopping 56% of SWKS revenues (according to Barrons recently). AAPL has the intellectual and financial resources to develop its own chips and thus be less of a hostage. (2) The second concern : SWKS seems to be overvalued now assuming I have the following correct: PEG sky high at 7.8 (ROE healthy at 28). I have been trimming reluctantly but just read in the Q & A that really like SWKS.

Would you agree with my concerns? If they are reasonably well founded, would you now withdraw much of your affection for this business... OR would you take the risk and keep loving her anyway?

Q: Hello Peter,

We are seeking advice on how to play the infastructure game now that Biden confirmed on Sunday that it is a stand-alone deal. We are light on Steel, Industrials, Manufacturing, Aerospace, Transportation, Materials, and 5G. We have some green energy with BEP.UN & AQN. We will reshuffle the deck by reducing Tech stocks to accommodate the shift.

Can you rank the following stocks in the categories 1st to last and add any other stocks that may be a better choice than those listed
Steel: RS, NUE, SCHN
Industrials: DD, HON (+ any other suggestions)
Aerospace: LMT, BA
Transportation: WSP, TFII, UNP, CNR, CP (+ any other suggestions)
Materials: CX (+ any other suggestions)
Manufacturing: (suggestions please)

My last question is ask your opinion of the top 8 stocks (please rank) for the infastructure deal regardless of the sector.

Thank you for your great service.

Debbie and Jerry
