Q: I am down >75% on each of these 3 stocks over the past 1+ years. I still have faith in the businesses though, and have a very longterm time horizon. I'm not looking to sell and rather, wondering if each/all of them would be worth adding to (at these significantly lower prices) if looking for long term gains? Thank you.

Q: Hi 5i,

Could I get your opinion on the future growth prospects of EA? I have owned the stock for 2years in a non-reg account and I am questioning whether it is the best use of my capital compared to companies like SE in the gaming space. SE looks attractive at the current price point and I thinking to make the switch.

Looking at 5 year plus time horizon.

Thank you in advance.

Q: Looking to take advantage of the pullback in growth names. The names above are standing out to me as companies that have been beaten up and 'may' offer a good short term bounce as well as long term potential. Is this a buying opportunity for those listed above? Are there other names you would suggest and could you rank them please? I am a fairly aggressive long term investor with an otherwise diversified portfolio.

Q: Hi 5i,

I'm new to the service and joined with the hope of finding an unbiased second opinion on my portfolio of stocks. I had the good fortune of purchasing in my TFSA SHOP ($1200); LSPD ($26.31); SE ($149); MELI ($769.45) and continue to hold. This year, not so good, I had purchased REAL ($18.16); ABST ($13.79); AT ($10.36) which with the exception of MX are all currently in the red.

My problem is that given my current YTD is at -13% I should probably shake up the TFSA. However, when I look at each stock individually I just can't bring myself to sell, I love the growth potential of them all.

I'm (obviously) ok with volatility in my portfolio and I do not anticipate needing the funds for 3+ years. I would appreciate your thoughts or ranking of these stocks in terms of growth potential from this point forward. Are there better stock opportunities I should consider out there for my TFSA ?

Thank you in advance.

Q: A general question about shipping/transport that may affect the consumer stocks. I'm increasingly hearing about shortages of truckers and back ups of containers in many major ports around the world. Fuel shortages in England (due to too few transport drivers), weeks of back logs at ports in NY and CA. Costco's recent comments on this topic...

All this has me wondering if there will even be enough goods to sell to meet expectations - and what will happen to high flyers (SHOP, AMZN), when sellers/merchcants simply can get stuff to sell.

Simply put, how significant is the driver/transport shortage and should we expect worse?
