Investment Q&A

Not investment advice or solicitation to buy/sell securities. Do your own due diligence and/or consult an advisor.

Q: Thoughts on the Opendoor quarter? Do you think this type of technology/business model has a bright future? Would you rather an equal weighting of all three of these names (say 2% each) or is there a clear leader in which it might be more prudent to take a single larger 5% position?

I feel that the real estate sector could become much more efficient and liquid especially with a large player or consolidator that increases competition and should lead to lower transaction costs. Real estate agencies and the (until somewhat recently) gatekept MLS feel like a 'dinosaur' of an industry ripe for tech-based disruption. What are your thoughts about this? Thanks.

Q: Am wondering which of these stocks are vulnerable to climbing interest rates. For the vulnerable ones, would you please advise at what point you would consider reducing or selling them. Also, a strategy on when and how to do such an assessment would be instructive.

Thanks for your great advice. Most of your subscribers say this regularly, but they probably really mean it ! If it weren't for 5i, I'd still be holding a bag of mutual funds not knowing how big my losses were.

Q: I recently sold my shares in RDFN for a small loss as it has not be doing much. I have been looking for a new real estate position in my TFSA to replace RDFN. I have noticed more questions recently about EXPI. Can you describe why you like this company? Would it be one of your top picks in real estate US stocks? If not, what are your ranked top 5 in order? I see EXPI is down 13% today as of writing this question (no news that I can find) and wondering what you might see as a favorable entry point. I am ok with volatility and am looking for long-term growth in my TFSA.

Q: Please name 5 companies in the USA and Canada that you think the market has punished unfairly in this tech sell off. Aggressive names with compelling fundamentals and huge growth opportunities would be the focus regardless of sector with a nod to companies with a 10 billion market cap or less. These would be companies in which the downside is fully priced in but nobody is giving them any credit for projected growth (and you believe that growth potential is substantial). If you could then pick your favourite from these in the US and Canada and add one sentence as to why I would be most appreciative!

Q: This is my margin portfolio, all position weightings are between 3%-5%.

The projected yield is 3.31% with a 3-5 year hold.

I realize 24 positions is a bit overkill but I can't seem to choose which to remove, which would you recommend?

What positions would you add to the portfolio?

Take as many credits as needed.

Thanks for the great service

Q: Hi.
The list of stocks make’s up my overall portfolio. Last month, during the sell off, my portfolio was down ~40% and started recovering slightly and lost steam again since late last week.
I don’t have any intentions to sell in the short term and I will prefer to hold for minimum the next 3-5 years.
Looking at the list of my holdings, do you feel there is any stock that should not be there?
Thanks,

Q: Hi ,
With wild swings up and down with high growth tech stocks, its my opinion that nothing has changed other than their markets caps and the price. In some cases they have even become cheaper then they were, EV/sales etc. I decided to hold on to my high growth stocks as the "underlying business" fundamentals have not changed. In some cases, they have even got better.
My portfolio is down roughly 40%, which i would consider quite normal during a pullback of this sorts.
Would you agree with my thinking ?
Thanks,
