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.

Thanks!

Q: HI, This retired income couple want to invest 5K for our 20 year old grand daughter from our TFSA. To do so we have to sell some of our holdings in this account. Our largest holding SLF to our smallest TPZ are available with profits in most. Please suggest best to worst to select for raising the necessary cash. Our plan is to use the cash to purchase VGT.US or perhaps your other preferred etfs to be used in about 3-5 years. Thanks
