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

Q: I am down >75% on each of these 3 stocks over the past 1+ years. I still have faith in the businesses though, and have a very longterm time horizon. I'm not looking to sell and rather, wondering if each/all of them would be worth adding to (at these significantly lower prices) if looking for long term gains? Thank you.

Q: These stocks are in my portfolio and are way down from my cost. Are these worth holding, adding more or to sell and move on.

As these are in my non-registered account, I can use the capital loss to offset previous year year's gains. Could you suggest proxy for these in case I sell now for capital loss to buy them later.

Q: I'm down >50% on LMND in my TFSA account, and while the loss itself doesn't alarm me, I'm doubting the future potential of their business model - especially with rising rates. I'm considering selling this position and re-investing into another company that I'm also down significantly on (RDFN) but that I have higher conviction in. Would love to hear your thoughts? Thank you.

Q: Hi 5i

Can you assign a rank on the future potential for each of these companies on a scale of 1-10? 1 being dead in the water and 10 being amazing potential from current levels?

If you have 1-2 favs from this list, what makes them better than the rest?

Thanks!

Q: Good day. A little over 1 year ago I allocated about 5% of my portfolio to the high growth/risk stocks. Needles to stay it hasn't worked out as expected. At this stage I am hoping that you can give me insight what the future holds for these companies as an investment. Which should be sold and subsequently move the funds moved into the keepers.
Deduct as many credits as you feel appropriate.
Much appreciated

Q: I have done alot of tax loss selling, starting in Oct. The stocks include XBC, CHEWY, LMND, PINS, RDFN, TDOC, EGLX, REAL, MRS, ABCL, and ZNGA. Which ones would you repurchase? Would you do it now, or wait until the new year? I purchased LSPD, NVEI , and APPS with some of the proceeds, and that has not worked out well! Would you average down on these names when they stabilize?

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.
