Q: Hello,

I have small positions in these 6 stocks, all in the red - MTCH, ROKU, GNRC are in registered accounts, RBLX, UPST, ZM in non-registered. I don't find it easy to sell any stocks but in the spirit of 'pulling weeds', can I get your opinion on which of these, if any, you would sell. Any that might be worth adding to at their current valuation?

Thank you for your insights, Doris

Q: My portfolio analytics is showing that I'm a bit low in my communication services sector.

Beyond the obvious telecom companies, what are some of the less obvious companies or perhaps ETFs that would fit into this sector?

Also, including the telecoms, could you rank your top few Canadian and US buys for this sector.

Thanks as always.

Q: Hi,

I currently own META and QCLN.
For long term hold, I'm thinking about switching these two into SMART stocks because they dropped more.

1) Do you think SMART stocks will outperform META and QCLN in the long term?
2) Do you think SMART stocks are cheap enough right now given almost 50% drops?

Thank you!

Q: What are some of your favorite US growth names right now? I am a younger investor with some money to deploy. I have a 20+ year time horizon. I am not too worried about sector allocation due to having a defined benefits pension when I eventually retire (20+ years).

I am also wondering what US stocks 5i staff are currently buying and why.

Thanks for all your advice. I read the questions daily. Your support through these tough times (my first as an investor) has been beyond insightful and finding I am getting my financial education through your words of wisdom and advice. I keep speaking highly of you to my friends looking to get into investing and am encouraging they subscribe to your service as it is beyond exceptional.

Thanks for all that you all do! Hope you and yours are safe and healthy during these tough times.

Q: I see you made recent comments on Match group. I'm interested and it looks very strong fundamentally (pre covid), very high roic, roe. But debt looked like it could be pretty high and CEO sold a large chunk of shares last month. Can you comment on its financial situation and would you have concerns with it making it through some negative quarters?

Q: I have a small US account and am looking to add a couple of companies to it. I realize that you do not provide extensive coverage of US stocks but would it be possible to recommend a few small to mid cap growth companies with a one to three year time horizon. Sector and volatility are not factors. Thanks.
