Q: Hi 5i Team - Are there any Canadian companies in the semi-conductor space that would be of interest to you, including start-up companies, suppliers of materials, and any potential companies on the horizon. I sold my shares in Photon Control some time ago and am looking for some kind of replacement on the Canadian side. If the U.S. is the only way to go in this field could you please suggest a couple of top picks. l already have Nvidia. Thanks.

Q: I initiated a half position in NVDA recently when it dipped below $200. I know you really like it. I see that the US is asking Taiwain to help with chip shortage and the last 3 months TSM has lost ground. Two questions: Between the two which would recommend to add/start a half position for 1. Short term and 2. long term? Thanks again.

Q: Hi,
I read an article called “The World Relies on One Chip Maker in Taiwan, Leaving Everyone Vulnerable” that appeared on the WSJ.

Apart from TDM, NVDA & INTEL, are there any others names in the industry that you could share or recommend?

Q: I bought these semis over the past few years in different accounts at different times in both non-registered and registered accounts. All of them did very well for me. I added them up yesterday and noticed they are over 5% of all my invested assets. As much as I hate to sell winners I probably would have to trim soon. Do you have any suggestions as to the trimming methodology? Reduce each and every one by half (or third) of its current value. Selectively sell some and not others? Sell the ones in registered accounts as there is no immediate tax consequence. keep the ones in taxable accounts? Sell some and keep the promising ones (can you tell or predict?) ? Any other suggestions? I have a high degree of risk tolerance. Thanks.

Q: Taiwan is in worst drought in decades. TSM is in Taiwan and much water is needed to make Chips. Should I sell TSM and purchase another Chip Company. What company should I purchase NVDA, AMD, MRVL, QCOM, INTC ?
China is also a threat to Taiwan and is currently sending War Planes over Taiwan. This is another problem facing Pres. Biden.

Q: Currently I own all of these semi conductor related companies in my taxable account. QCOM, AMD and MRVL are still at a loss since the March downturn. All others are in positive territory, especially SMH. Should I continue to hold them all as core holdings for the long term or would you trim or delete any? Is it still a good idea to hold SMH because the ETF owns a number of companies like ASML, AMAT, an MU that I do not hold?

Q: PINS where it is today; TWAIWAN SEMI-CONDUCTORS where it is today;
3 months from where they are today - which one will be higher? Second time around with PINS it was a pick on Market Call a couple of years ago and so I am thinking of taking the loss again and moving on. Answering this question will provide me guidance. I notice a lot of stocks have a big pop after earnings and then give it all back (eg. SHOP). What is your take on this? Relying on your good advice.

Q: We keep hearing chip shortages lately, and will imagine that "AMD', TSM', NVDA'....chip names will do well as a result of strong demand and price power etc. But most of these chip names are all well below their February highs. Could you help us understanding the share price and demand divergence observed? If we buy any of these names, will we be rewarded? If yes, which one or ones you like? Thanks
