Q: What are your current thoughts on EXPI and its recent earnings report? Do you see it as a strong recovery potential and would you add to a position that is down 66% with a current weight of 0.5%? Or do you think it is time to move on to other names that you have higher conviction in (please suggest some other US names)?

Q: could you give us your case for PERI,as you seem to like it.
Why is PERI so much more compelling then for example APPS or AT?
Wouldn't you think advertising budgets decline in times of a recession?
It might be apples to oranges,but if having only one choice between INMD,AXON and PERI,which one would you pick?

Do you have replacement suggestions that will likely surge ahead in more promising market conditions? Thank you.

If they are sells, what would be your most promising names to buy today? Some I were looking at were Ats, Crox , Bn. Thanks .

Q: Hi 5i Team,

Im down on all the above stocks as follows CRWD Down 36%, ETSY down 40%, PINS down 52%, PYPL down 64%, SQ down 72% and U down 77%.

With a 2 to 3 year horizon which of these are worth holding and which once I should sell and can you suggest US replacements and not necessarily in the same asset class. Just good stable companies that have good growth potential to outperform the indexes.

Take as many credits as you feel necessary.

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: Good morning and happy Friday.

Here is a fun little exercise, if you had 1 million $ concentrated portfolio of 5-10 stocks and had a goal of an average 6%-8% return annually via combination of dividend and capital appreciation of holdings what stocks would you own? Canadian holding, and combo Canadian/U.S.A holdings. So 2x portfolio examples.

I realize this is just for fun and not financial advice. Thank you for the years of great service.

Q: What are your thoughts on EXPI latest earnings report? Was there anything of particular interest on the conference call (either positive or negative)? The stock has been punished with interest rate hikes impacting real estate markets. Does it look like a company that will do well when it comes out of this and real estate picks up or have the fundamentals and story changed here? Is this an add while its down, hold and do nothing, or time to move onto other higher conviction names (please suggest any). Currently held in TFSA so no opportunity to claim a loss (down 70%, currently less than 1% weighting due to drop). Thanks so much!

Q: Apart from small positions in LMT and NOC, I would like to build my defense position. I am a GARP investor, not focused on yield in this sector. I note your concern about LHX at 15x EBITDA. Overall, how would you rate these stocks or others in the sector that you like for 3-5 year hold and advise buy prices. Would you consider AXON in this sub-sector or industrial good more generally.
