Q: Is there something to replace WELL in the Healthcare sector in Canada or US, ETF inclued?

Read Answer Asked by Yves on November 28, 2022

Q: Dear 5i
From my readings it appears that LLY,ABBV and UNH would be your favourite healthcare stocks and in that order . Would you agree ?
Between my wife and i we have 3 RRSP accounts . Would you recommend putting the number one healthcare pick LLY in all three accounts or maybe LLY in one account , ABBV in another account and UNH in the third account ?
The same applies to DOL and ATD which seem to be your favourite consumer staples stocks . Earnings forecasts look better for DOL but ATD is liked a lot as well though ATDs earnings forecast isn`t as good as DOL .Do i put DOL in all three accounts or and DOL in one account and ATD in another and a combination of both in the third account ?
Please deduct credits accordingly .

Q: I hold these 3 healthcare stocks. Thinking of adding Lily. Do you see too much overlap in this combination or can you recommend others for diversification?

Q: I just sold off my Biogen holding and am looking for a replacement within the healthcare sector. I held Biogen for over 3 years and exited with a nice return, but I have to say that I did not enjoy the wild ride and price swings as it seemed to trade solely on its new Alzheimer’s drug advancements and setbacks. So now I am looking to replace it with something a little more stable but still with the expectation of slow and steady growth. What would be your top 1 or 2 picks be today for both the US and Canada that might fit. I already own Savaria and XLV so something besides these.

Q: Thank you for the detailed response earlier on VEEV's quarterly report. You noted that you feel it is still a "decent" long term hold. I am wondering if you have any other US healthcare names that you have much higher conviction of that you might recommend replacing VEEV with? I have lots of time and VEEV currently sits in RRSP.

Q: Hello 5i
Recently you replied to a question regarding covered calls. You said you like high volatility companies for this strategy. In other places you said that you do not tend to write calls on core holdings. Just wondering what stocks you currently prefer for this strategy, that are not, or maybe, your core holdings

Q: Would appreciate your guidance on building a healthcare portfolio with these names and any other suggestions divided into 2 categories [1] core [to constitute the bulk of the portfolio] and [2] growth, for a 3+ year hold. If you could add a few thoughts on each as to why you like or not, that would be most helpful.
