Q: I have room for 1 full position in my US RRSP. I do not have exposure to US financials and was looking for your opinion for a relatively diversified US financial with the best prospects for CAGR over the next 3 to 5 years. I came up with Paypal, Square, MS, and JPM. I feel that Paypal (with it recent sell off) is the best option. What is your opinion?
