Q: Argh!! Not a good day on the quarterly earnings front for some of these names in my portfolio. After recent developments, would you still consider these names still a add/hold/sell?

I know hindsight is 20/20 but sometimes I wonder why I didn't put more of my capital into a stock like Constellation, which is just best in class and steady, rather than into these other names. I currently have a large position in CSU and others which largely offset these losses, but waking up to these drops of 20-30% are getting really irritating, but I understand this is the how it is. No pain, no gain! Thank you!

Q: Brief thoughts on these weeds I'm looking to pick.

Return and % weight in portfolio now and what I plan:

MGA: -39, 2.13%. Looking to trim slightly down to 1.5%, add to ATZ, BYD, BKNG or SBUX?
ILLM: -87%, 0.14%. So small now its insignificant, roll into GOOG position
CTS: -46%, 0.96%. Hovering at 1 yr low. Aside from strategic review, what's the catalyst?
MED: -61%, 0.80%. Sell and add to ATZ, BYD, BKNG or SBUX?

Toss them, hold them or water them? Thanks!

Q: Good morning 5i
Yesterday i asked about a replacement for Magna and you kindly offered tfii and ats. I like these suggestions. But, the problem ( nice to have such a problem) is that i am already quite overweightin tfii and am also overweight inthe industrial sector. So, i am hesitant to buy ats. Do you have an equivalent for ats? Any other sector is ok, although my technology holdings are high. Also a US stock would be ok. It may not be the right mindset but i would like something with growth that can help recuperate some of my loses on mga

Q: Earlier this year I transferred my Magna shares from my non registered Canadian Account to my non registered US account in order to avoid money exchange charges. I am interested in selling the shares and would like to know if the same shares can be sold through my US account so I can use the US funds to purchase some beaten up ADSK and CRM shares this month.
Thanks for all the support in 2021.

I hold a 1/2 position in Magna. I do believe in this stock longterm. With the shortages and things appearing to be priced in. Is it time to top up to a full position?

On a separate question what are your highest conviction growth pics in TECH for the 4Q.
Preferably US but can spribkle some Canadian names as well.

Thank you for the amazing input and service. It's been immeasurable.

Q: Based on your experience and the resources you have access to, do you care to give your educated and thoughtful guess on the following: IF Apple were to proceed with building smart cars, would you agree Apple is far more likely to contract with MGA than with any legacy automakers? In this context , let us define ďfar more likelyĒ as a greater than sixty percent chance. If you place the chances significantly lower than that, would you not agree that MGA is now fully valued? Come now, perhaps even modestly over valued?
