Q: In late January with geopolitical tension increasing I put stops on my stocks. I was stopped out of ATD,BYD,BBP,UN,DOO,MAGT,MG,PBH,PLC, and TSU. I was also stopped out of GSY,KXS,NVEI,TFII, and TOP, all of this group I've repurchased. The remaining stocks, are there any you wouldn't buy back? Thanks for all your good council over the years thru good times and challenging times. David

Q: Hi 5i Team - I have sold my shares in Score but am interested in investing in a company in the same space. Am considering buying Penn and am just wondering if this would be a good strategy. Also are there any companies similar to Score that you would recommend - Canadian or U.S, any size of market cap but small and mid cap are preferred. Thanks.

Q: I have Kinaxis in the growth section of my portfolio and have had for years. It's done well, but has receded and stagnated, so I am considering replacing it with one of the above which have been on my watch list for a while. I also hold PHO and DND which will eventually have to be replaced. I'm not concerned about sector, except, no tech because I'm overweight, but am looking to replace with a decent quality Canadian stock with good capital appreciation expected over the next few years as the economy recovers. Please order all five, including KXS as buy and hold growth stocks. Thanks!

Q: I handle my 40 year old daaughters portfolio. In her $170,000 balanced portfolio which is equally balanced, BYD has grown to 13%, LSPD to 19% and SHOP to 7.5%. The funds are not required for any other purpose than growing the income for retirement. We are not too concerned about the downside of these. Still, 5i keeps insisting that a maximum to hold for equities shwould be 5%. Should we trim and put the excess else where and if so could you suggest where or keep on with no change. We are comfortabl with this. Thank you
