Q: I have historically held my investments in mutual funds through a financial advisor. I subscribed to 5i Research approximately 3 years ago and made my first investments in equities and an ETF based primarily upon information obtained from 5i Research. The returns on VGRO ETF and my equities have been 2 to 4 times the gain for my mutual funds. I recently upgraded my subscription to include Portfolio Analytics. Based upon portfolio analytics, my current portfolio is reasonably well balanced with recommendations to add healthcare and industrials as well as some international exposure. I have cash on hand that I want to invest. I will hold my investments for the next 5 to 10 years. I am looking at purchasing some additional equities and an ETF with good growth potential at moderate risk. Please provide top 10 recommendations with rankings for stocks that I should consider adding to my portfolio. Please provide recommendations for top 5 ETFs with rankings that I should consider adding to my portfolio. What is your current view on VGRO? Would you suggest topping up my investment in VGRO?

Q: I'm also looking for some exposure to Healthcare. Not many options in Canada. I use to own Medtronic, Abbott and United Health. Are those good places to start in the U.S? Can you rank them in order of preference? Any others that seem appealing? I'd like to stay away from the stocks surrounding the vaccine since they seem speculative at the moment.

Thanks,
Jason

Q: I have been following ABT and RMD recently. They have both been trading down the last couple of days when the market is up.

Could you please provide your thoughts on why these companies are down relative to the market recently? I would have thought that they would be doing well given the current situation.

Thank you.
