Q: The genome space seems to have taken a hit and I'd like to add some to my portfolio. Can you give me 3 to 5 Canadian or US stocks going forward that you believe have the highest potential of gains( I realise this would also be subject to the most risk) for a 5 plus year hold.

Also 3 to 5 stocks from Canada or US that you feel should be held for long term exposure.

Thank you.

Q: I'm seeking an ETF to help with disruptive technologies.

I have mostly banks, REIT's, and other dividend paying stocks. Less in
technology, health care though I have a few ETF's covering the space.

What I don't have are ETF's that would protect against a possible
decline in my positions: such as disruptive financial stocks (such as
ARKF) and emerging internet, cybersecurity for example. I have very
little knowledge ion these areas but they could well be important
going forward, as a minority position (maybe 5 - 10% of my portfolio).

Thoughts?

Q: Hi Team,
I'd like to start positions in an aggressive growth portfolio in the artificial intelligence, genomics, renewable energy (and EV) sectors (2-3 positions per sector). Holding time 2-5 years.
Also considering Bionano Genomics (BNGO).
1. Please rank the sectors for expected growth. Are there any others I should consider? Are they already overbought/overpriced?
2. Please rank the stocks in each sector for expected growth. Are there any others I should consider?
Thanks!

Q: Thank you for answering my question comparing ARKK with QQQJ/EDGW. Somehow it seems to have been flagged as Private! Didn't mean to mark as private. Please feelfree to unflag it!
Your answer as always has been consistent. You favoured ARKK. Thanks.
But this is an extension of that question. I know you don't get into asset allocation! Let me try anyway in the following manner!
If someone is ready to invest 100k, 3 to 5 years, high risk tolerance, what would be % you would allocate in each of the ARK funds?

Q: I would very much appreciate explaining the difference between ARK and Evolve Etf's. Are ARKs actively managed while Evolves are passively managed? Would you please choose two or three of each that have a balance between better growth and lower risk and provide good diversification.
Thanks.

Q: Hi Team,
A couple different parts to this question. The "Geno" sector has exploded this year. Different hot names in the sector seem to be moving 10-20% daily. I have buddies now piling into these names now, so am wondering if maybey there's a "top" coming here soon? Or if you think this Euphoria will continue in the sector? To me it almost feels like gambling to try to buy in to these things right now. Also on this topic, can you briefly give your thoughts on what has made the Geno sector suddenly start to move this year? Its not like geno work is a new thing...or is it just hitting some major progress this year? Same can be said for the EV sector. For fear of "missing out" I am tempted to sell KXS out of my rsp for a slight gain as I hold this name in 2 different accounts to raise funds to buy EAGB (the canadian version of ARKG). My portfolio is currently heavy weighted tech and I currently have no Geno exposure. Is EAGB the best way for me to play this sector long term, or do you have any explosive individual GENO names you would recommend buying for a multi bagger possibility? I have heard BNGO has some good things coming its way? .....Or should I wait for a pullback in the massive run up before I think about doing this...or not at all? If I did buy EAGB I would probably buy and hold it for years as a way to play the sector. It does seem like there could be some major breakthroughs down the road in geno technology.
