Q: Hi! If you listen to Larry Summers from Harvard on Wall Street Week he speaks of stagflation, Fed not raising rates quick enough, and difficulty with getting a soft landing. If you had to create a brand new portfolio today with a tilt towards income and could choose a combination of 16 stocks from either the US and Canada what stocks would you choose?

Q: Further to Neil's question on May 9, can you list some tech/growth stocks that are looking good at current prices? I would like to start nibbling away with the understanding prices could go lower but with the 30% decline in Nasdaq from high, we must be getting close to the bottom here. Thanks

Q: Good morning 5i,
I have a loss in Gild and have been waiting for a time to claim it and buy a replacement. It seems to me that the recent drop in Abbivie might provide that opportunity, unless there is something I don't see. Would you think that this would be the best opportunity in this field at the moment?
thanks as always for your great work

Q: Great 5i team, There are times like this; I will need to put my cash holding to work. I kept trimming energy names in our family portfolio to under 10% and staying on the sidelines for the last few months. Your thoughts are very much appreciated with these 2 questions: which one that you would pick 3 out of these 7 energy names and which sector that you will allocate the funds? I am light in industrial and health care. Thanks for your input.

Q: Dear Peter and Ryan.

I allocated almost same dollar amount in Meta (FB) (formerly known as Facebook), Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL), Alphabet (GOOG), NVDA and others. I invested a bit heavily in tech stocks and got hammered. I was disappointed in the business model of Meta lately. Today after trading hours, Meta released earnings and the price jumped. I think this may be a good opportunity to sell tomorrow and switch to some non-tech sectors. How do you think? What one or two names would you recommend to invest now to diversify away from high growth stocks?

Thank you,
Yiwen
