Q: Hello guys,
I was hoping you could rate the current buy-ability of these industrial discretionary companies (byd,doo,mg,tt,sis) and of these clothing discretionary companies (goos, lulu,nke, atz) with 10 being a great buy, for new money. Any concerns, and is there anything similar that you like better?

Q: I'm looking at the rebound in these tech and consumer discretionary stocks and wondering whether you have a preference for some of these companies over others. Could you please rank your favourites based on risk/reward to buy now, and would you recommend trading any to exchange for others? I have holdings in most.

Thanks for your thoughtful review.

Q: Happy Easter everyone, I wanted to get your thoughts on the recent earnings for LULU if you would be a buyer at the $300 level . Additionally with the reopening in view what are your thoughts on Nike and Under armer as well? I feel that with the nicer weather and lifting of restrictions people might start thinking about getting back into shape before everything reopens.

Looking forward to your insights,

Q: Current market volatility has me seeking companies that have 'wide moats' making them somewhat less susceptible to market noise. I would appreciate it if you would suggest the names of some American companies that you would consider to be 'wide moat' types of companies. If there are some that currently provide value this would be a bonus.

Q: Hi, current in my portfolio of 13 stocks + 2 ETF I have some good performing stocks that are > 5% position, TXN is 10.3%, DIS is 8.40%, EWZS is 9.37% and ADM is 8.54%. 25% of my holdings are in TECH (3 stocks + 1 etf). Do you feel comfortable with keeping these stocks with current positions or could I trim it to reduce risk ? I don't have many exposure to financials and consumer cyclical sectors. Can you suggest me growth stocks in these 2 sectors in US and CAN ? In healthcare I have only ABBV, I would like to have other good options here for growth and medium risk. I have +20 years horizon.

Q: Hi 5i,

I'm concerned with all the sabre rattling leading to a US/China trade war. Of particular concern are American companies that are needing China as the engine for growth. 1. Do you think this is a valid concern? 2. Would you position your portfolio more domestically/defensively for a trade war? 3. What would be some good alternatives to these three companies that are more domestic (or Western) centric for growth?

Q: Hi,
Having held some cash aside, waiting for a pullback - I am now wondering which companies I should focus on purchasing first during the downturn? Obviously I am looking for those that are good, solid companies with growth potential. Dividends is nice feature, but not a requirement if the future prospects for the company are strong and debt is low or non existent. I do not currently have any REITs and only AQN in utilities, ENB in energy as I lean towards growth more than income and usually overweight in stronger sectors and industries. Please provide some suggestions, US or Cdn, that have caught your interest recently, as I always value your suggestions.
Thank you,
