Investment Q&A

Not investment advice or solicitation to buy/sell securities. Do your own due diligence and/or consult an advisor.

Q: I see the ZM trades at a decent valuation and has a fair bit of cash. P/B, P/S, and P/E are presently much cheaper than the past.
For a value investor, is ZM a decent investment? Morningstar labels is it with a Narrow moat, although it is rated a Hold. How competitive is the industry? With all that cash, could it not add on other areas of growth.
Technically it appears to have good support around $59.
Your thoughts?

Q: Uber for quite some time has been stalling out in this $61.00 range. HPS has been stalling out in the $81.00 range. Could this go on for quite some time before it moves up, if it moves up? Meanwhile, on my radar 2 securities you are familiar with have been getting a lot of attention lately being ZM and SNAP. Would you recommend them? Wishing you the best of the season.

Q: I have small positions in the above noted companies held in my TFSA. They are all underwater and so there is no tax advantage to selling these losers. I would like to sell some or all of them and either to one or more of them or move on to some small techs that have more prospects. Can you let me know which of these you would sell hold or add to. Thanks for your ongoing great advise.

Q: Hello,

I have small positions in these 6 stocks, all in the red - MTCH, ROKU, GNRC are in registered accounts, RBLX, UPST, ZM in non-registered. I don't find it easy to sell any stocks but in the spirit of 'pulling weeds', can I get your opinion on which of these, if any, you would sell. Any that might be worth adding to at their current valuation?

Thank you for your insights, Doris

Q: Over the past two years with the downturn of the market, I am down significantly with majority of these holdings in various accounts. I have a long-term 10+ year outlook, so looking to see if you feel any of these can be sold off given the outlook, management of the company? If so, what are your recommendations for a growth investor in either CAD/US stock options?

Q: Hi Peter,

I am not a big fan of ARKK or Cathie Wood. On a year-to-date basis, ARKK has fallen more than 50%. But I am fascinated with Cathie’s all or nothing investment approach. ARKK invests in disruptive technology firms. Her high risk and high reward investment style reminds me of Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell in the movies Top Gun and Top Gun Maverick. You either reach Mach 10 or crash and burn!

My question for your team relates to ARKK’s top ten holdings: ZM, TSLA, ROKU, CRSP, EXAS, TDOC, PATH, NTLA, SQ, and BEAM. Which of these stocks have fallen sufficiently so that a high-risk investor can safely purchase them for a five-to-ten-year hold? Also, what is your ranking of these ten high tech disruptive companies? Living life in the “danger zone” has its attractions.

Q: Hi,
I’m thinking of doing some tax loss selling. Can you suggest proxies for the following companies: Roku, Trade Desk, Twilio, Unity Software and Zoom Video.

Would you also be able to suggest an ETF that would serve as a proxie for all of them? I’m thinking of a high-growth-stock ETF like the SPYG.

Q: Hi Peter

I have question regarding the following list of “fallen angels”. These ten stocks have achieved significant drops in valuation since Dec. 31, 2020. Can you please rank these “fallen angels” in terms of the best risk-return profile over a five-to-ten-year hold? Everyone likes a bargain! Sometimes it is possible to survive a falling knife particularly if you use tungsten as a shield!

We cannot all be superman!


Thanks George

Q: I still think there is big potential for this stock, yet it still is not doing well. Despite their "Planned Innovations to Ignite the Next Era of Communications" which looks forward thinking to me, the market just doesn't seem interested.
Do you think it is still about, "Shares rotating from pandemic holders to longer term positions"? In your experience can you see this falling below $270-$250?

Thanks as always
