Q: Friday messy fun question, please take it lightly. I would like to start reducing the oil companies I bought in April last year. They've done incredibly well, but now I would like to increase my tech growth stocks by opening 1 or 2 new positions. I currently own GOOG, DND, U, CRWD, RDFN, ROKU, VEEV, PINS, and SQ. They have done well under your recommendations even with the recent pullbacks. As no one can time the markets, I am not willing to wait for a surprise interest hike as it is part of a locked-in RSP. It would be a 10+ hold. 1) Without considering size, could you please rank your favourite top 5 companies addressed in this question as of today in terms of strong balance sheet & steady growth potential over time (even in an interest hike environment). 2) Could you please give a brief explanation for the #1 pick only. Thank you very much as always!

Q: My understanding of the network effect is that it creates a virtuous circle of growth and increasing strength for the best companies - they become more valuable as they gain size over time, e.g. SHOP, AMZN.
What are your favs in any sectors that meet this criteria?

Q: Hi team,

What do you think of UFO for space play? It think the space should do well in the coming years with the USA now depending on homemade solutions. If you agree, is there any company or ETF you would suggestion in place of this UFO?

P.S: I, as one of your early members, must say that I wish you would have allowed questions on US stocks much earlier. And I am relieved to hear that you are going to continue with this added value service. I keep coming to this site indeed because I want to learn from your answering questions about the US stocks. It is not a secret that Canadian Markets have hugely under-performed their US counterparts.

Thanks for all you do for us!
