Q: The above mentioned companies make up my US portion of my companies for a buy and hold retired growth investor. Given that they are evenly held, not well diversified and weighted to tech, Looking forward to 2022 do any of these cause any concern to you. NIO and UCTT have been underperforming the most. Would you trim or remove any of these?

Q: Hi Folks,
I have the above companies in my TFSA all at the same or so weight. I had BYD but sold it when it started to drop. I am still ahead in my sold price as compared to its current price. I am looking to add another or even BYD now that it has settled somewhat, can you give me your suggestion as to what you would add to this lineup - buy back BYD or can you provide some others that I can add. Thank you very much for your suggestions over the years.

Q: I currently am not set up to invest in US stocks. What do you think about the 10 CDR stocks currently listed on the TSX? If you like that vehicle, are there any in that group that you like more than others?

This would be a 2 credit question.

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
