Q: We have very little tech. exposure in our portfolios as a % - so minimal. Own IGM & ARKK in USD portfolio - IGM for 4 years - done very well. In TFSA, own STC, VHI, XIT ETF. All the others are on my list to purchase as not. I would buy equal positions - so, of those we do not own which three would you consider the best in the short and long term. I am mostly a dividend grower investor - companies that increase them every year; however, trying to add a bit of tech. Maybe there others not shown that meet my criteria?

Q: There are a lot of small to medium sized Canadian technology companies, some of them fairly new to the stock market, that have seen very good stock price appreciation in the last year or two. Many/most of these companies are not profitable, and obviously this is a fairly speculative segment of the market. Today, I heard Darren Sissons talking about JDS Uniphase which went from $2 to $1,000 and back to $2 in the tech bubble 21 years ago. I'm wondering about how many of these small to medium sized Canadian tech companies might suffer a similar fate, and how many will succeed. Of the following list of stocks, what would be your estimate for the % of them that will succeed 5 - 10 years down the road at becoming long term successful businesses, with strong profits and a substantially higher stock price than now, and what % will fall by the wayside, failing to become good profitable businesses, and seeing their stock price drop off substantially. There are no doubt others that could be included in this list, but these are the ones I have picked out. Not asking which ones will succeed, just trying to get an idea of general potential for success/failure for this type of company/stock. ADCO, AT, CTS, DCBO, DND, KSI, LSPD, MVP, NVEI, PHO, QUIS, STC, WISH.
