Q: With more and more US states moving to legalize marijuana I feel it is just a matter of time before that is done at the federal level. I have a large position in these 3 names. I assume they will shift from big tobacco to big marijuana once it is legalized. I think there is big growth potential here. Would you agree with that assessment? Would there be something that could stop this from happening ie government not allowing these big players to dominate that industry?

Q: Hi 5i,

Thanks for the great. What are your thoughts on the tobacco stocks (Imperial Brands, Philip Morris, Altria, British American)?

These stocks seem cheap with amazing yields—but just keep getting cheaper. Is it time for me to take losses and move on?

Thank you!

Q: On the US side, we've owned TOT, CSCO, MO and PM for some time now and they have languished. Is patience merited or should I sell these positions and replace them with other US stocks? We're retired and want to preserve capital but do like dividend income. thanks

Q: I have held MO for over 10 years. It's done very well for me - tripled in value plus dividends. But it's probably time to move on. Traditional tobacco product sales are declining rapidly (not a bad thing to be honest) and investments in JUUL and Cannibis are probably years away from potentially paying off. I'm comfortable with my portfolio make up except for healthcare, which i have no exposure to. I've been looking at ISRG, TMO, BSX and BDK. I'm leaning towards ISRG based on their balance sheet (lots of cash, very little debt),market position, and potential growth but it seems to be in the doghouse after an earnings miss last quarter and it looks expensive on a fwd P/E basis. That said I don't mind paying up for quality. Your thoughts on ISRG or maybe one of the other stocks I listed? Deduct as many credits as you see fit. Thanks in advance.
