Q: Do you think the selling in US banks is overdone? They have really taken a big hit lately. I would think with rising rates, they would be going up instead of dropping. Is this because of the war in Ukraine and their interests in Russia, or are there other factors at play here?

Which one is your favourite right now? I don't own any of them, but am thinking of starting a position.

Q: I have quite a lot of financials, mostly Canadian banks and insurers with about 20% US. Would like to sell down some and buy something with some more growth in the payment section but still relatively conservative.
Would you recommend one of MA, V, Pypl or other financial as currently looks like a buying opportunity?
Thank you.

Q: Hello Peter,

I am leaning towards going all in with my borrowed chips for swing trades. This would be separate from my long term holdings. I would appreciate your opinion please.

Towards that objective, I have short listed the following:
AMAT, TER, ATVI, GNRC, COF, MS, BAC, LSPD, AFRM.

I think diversification does not matter for swing trades and, understanding that this is a crap shoot could you please suggest approx. 5-6 stocks, either from this list or others that you would suggest.
Regards
Rajiv

Q: Hi Peter and Team
Looking for guidance on US holdings in a non registered account. My feeling from following your questions is that the US market would likely do well next year or 2 and that I should not invest 100% in Canada. Can you list 5 US securities that you see as good growth for next 2-3 years holding ?
Thanks for excellent guidance
Peter

Q: Hi 5i Team,
Do you have a preference for long term growth in US banks? I was considering JP Morgan or Bank of America. Any preference here or other suggestion? Looking for long term growth.
Secondly, could you suggest 5 US stocks with good positive momentum that you would invest in now? Sector is not important for these suggestions.
Thanks,
Linda Nemis

Thanks you!

Q: Your thoughts on selling XLF to buy JPM & BAC and selling PFE & GILD to buy ARKG.

Thank you!

Q: i have noticed that 5i prefers JPMorgan as an American bank. I read recently that Warren Buffett has bought more of an already large component, of Bank of America., while selling other banks, like Wells Fargo. i imagine you can't go wrong on either of these two banks, but it would be interesting to know why you would prefer JPM over bac, and since you like to look at the other side of the trade, why Buffer would seem to prefer bac.
thanks as always for the great service
