Q: I have some new funds to add 2 positions. I wish to do so in some USA companies. Even though the US is not your primary focus here, and you are not aware of the make up of my portfolio, can you pls provide your view on which 2 of these 4 names you would consider best and why? Looking for a long term hold, with dividends being less important. Thank you for your very excellent service.

Q: Hello, a great service and learning lots from the Q&A. I have a small Canadian portfolio with MG, OTEX, CNQ, BIP.UN and MFC. And also DIS from US side. I am looking to charge it up with some growth performers over the next 5 years. How do these holdings rate and any suggestions on additions? Would you replace any of these?

Thanks for the feedback. Have a great day.

Q: 1. I am currently holding BKNG and wonder if either NKE or SBUX would be a better position for a retired somewhat conservative investor?

Thanks for your help.

Q: After its earnings release, would you consider NFLX is now close to the status of a mature enterprise? Still worthy of above-average multiples , but with a P/E that could be justifiable around 25, and likely not today’s sky-high multiples.

1. What is your thinking on this, after last night’s results? Would you be of the mind that NFLX share price will from now rise very modestly ,or even remain flattish, over the next 3 to 5 years?
2. At the time of sending this question, I don’t yet see any updates of analyst ratings but perhaps they will be available at time of your answer. Post latest results what do you see as PEG, forward P/E and, if available, growth/contraction in global revenues?
3. Do you think today’s sell off in NFLX is an opportunity to add? Would you top up on a half position, or liquidate?

Your opinions have always been valuable and most helpful. Thank you.

Q: I own MDT and ABBV in the Health Care Field. I am thinking of selling MDT and buying DIS. I know these are in completely different sectors but was wondering if there would be more growth in DIS going forward?
Thanks for all your professional advice.

Q: Hi guys, thanks for the excellent service. Generally TFSA is the place for high growth but my highest growth has been in my RRSP. Is there any compelling reason I should sell anything in RRSP and rebuy in TFSA (e.g., NVDA)? I realize I will be taxed on RRSP withdrawals while TFSA withdrawals are tax-free - but - my RRSP has a lot more cash than my TFSA so there isn't room to move all my growthy stuff over. Because of the relative size of RRSP to TFSA, if I were to do equal weighting of all stocks, I'd only have 4 different stocks in my TFSA, which perhaps is fine? Are there any obvious adjustments that you would make to the following:

XQQ 13.68%
VXC 12.03%
NVDA 7.64%
AAPL 6.70%
JPM 4.73%
BNS 4.52%
GOOG 4.32%
ENB 4.13%
MSFT 3.98%
AMZN 3.86%
RTX 3.51%
COST 3.42%
PG 3.11%
DIS 2.82%
CASH 1.32%

GSY 5.28%
CRWD 3.31%
VEEV 2.50%
ROKU 2.44%
SHOP 2.26%
WELL 0.85%
XBC 1.08%

LSPD 0.79%
BYD 0.76%

SLF 0.51%
T 0.42%

Q: I am planning to purchase equal amounts ($) of the above. Do you consider these companies do be reasonably safe investments over a 3-5 year period?
Would you suggest a replacement or deletion for any of these companies? I am over 80 and am hoping to have a reasonable return from this investment.
And hopefully I will still be around to spend the gains.

Q: Hi 5i
In the content space would you expect Disney or Netflix to outperform the other ? I'm leaning towards DIS for the content + 'everything else' that DIS has to offer - or has it recovered sufficiently and should I reign in my expectations ?
Expecting a 2-4 year hold, longer if all goes well.

Q: Current market volatility has me seeking companies that have 'wide moats' making them somewhat less susceptible to market noise. I would appreciate it if you would suggest the names of some American companies that you would consider to be 'wide moat' types of companies. If there are some that currently provide value this would be a bonus.
