I have small 0.8% positions, in both PINS and APPS, in an unregistered account.

Looking for advice on possible consolidation:

1) Consolidate APPS into PINS
2) Consolidate PINS into APPS
3) Consolidate both APPS and PINS into TTD, PERI or MELI.
4) Do nothing.

5+ year time-frame with high risk tolerance.

Q: Hi 5iresearch
I am in a loss position with the above stocks. They represent a very small size of my portfolio. Which ones would have a good chance for recovery in the next 12 months? I am trying to determine which ones I should sell to allocate to other shares with better chances. You can give %s for their recovery in the next 12 months.
Thank you

Q: I own all of the above US Tech, except ROKU. I was interested in your answer yesterday regarding potential growth for ROKU, all things going well. Amoung these companies, is there anything you would sell to move into ROKU? I don't really want to put new money into more US Tech, but would rather find the right balance in the funds I already have there. Thanks!

Q2: Are there any already in this list that you would say (like Jack Armstrong) "Get that garbage out of here" or are they all okay?

Q: Thanks to the 5i team for all the great work amongst a very tough 2022! I wish you and yours all the very best for the new year.

I really appreciated and learnt a lot from the various indices/metrics that you used in your market update emails, especially circling back in the most recent one to update the trends. Looking at the various indexes you explored last year, it made me wonder if there was an index or metric that tracked digital advertising to look at trends through time (e.g., have things bottomed and more are spending on digital advertising). As a holder of companies like Google, Digital Turbine, and The Trading Desk, I am interested to know if there is an index/metric out there to follow trends in digital advertising. If there is, could you use it to suggest what the general status of digital advertising is and how it might help inform adding to positions of GOOG, APPS, TTD, and others (if you have higher conviction names to suggest).

Thanks so much for all you do and wishing everyone a strong investment year in 2023.

Can you please recommend 5 US small Caps other than Apps or Inmode for a January bounce?

Q: I currently have APPL at 1.47%, APPS at .37% and SHOP at .69% of my total portfolio. If I were to consolidate these three stocks into one, which would suggest?

Secondly, I know technically GOOG is classified as a communications stock. For the purposes of portfolio management, would you classify GOOG as 100% communications...or assign at least part of it to the tech sector? Thank you.

Q: Hello 5i
Could you provide an indication as to buyhold/sell - all are current holdings but some due to declines have reduced to < 1% . I'm looking to rebalance overall and these need addressing with possibly topping up, selling or doing nothing ... ignore sector weights please. Already held for some time and any that I decide will remain will be held for the long term

Q: It is tax loss time, I must sell some of my teck losers. Could you place in order from the ones that must be sold vs those that hold a lot of merit. Thank you for all that you do, Cheers, Geoff

Q: As a follow up to your excellent summary response to my question asking about Digital Turbines (APPS) quarterly earnings, you said you would be comfortable adding to it with a long term view in mind and that it may come down in price after its big rise after the earnings report. I am wondering what would be a good price to try and get to add to a small position (decreased significantly since purchased near highs). Thank so much for all your great advice and work that the 5i team does!

Q: Hi 5i Team,

I own the above noted stocks as a smaller portion of my portfolio of higher risk names. All of these names are down other than CTS. Do you see any of these names as ones that I should sell as part of a portfolio clean up?

Thanks in advance,
