Q: Dear 5i team.

Just finished reading the past few mths questions on APPS. Obviously, you've thrown in the towel on it.

Do you see a scenerio where they go bankrupt? IE: equity going to zero? You said it's debt/cash flow is 4Xs. Terminal, or does mgmt have a shot at redemption?

Appreciate your updated views on their fundimentals.

Q: I hold UNITY and APPS , now less than 1% and at a substantial loss as part of a US $ registered account tilted to growth and, intentionally, heavy in tech. In addition to the above two, it has the following holdings, with % shown of TOTAL (U.S. & Cdn) portfolio, followed by % of profit/loss, Our Canadian portfolio is balanced and much larger.

META .75% (+21%) , TEAM 1.9% (0%), CRWD 2.7% (-20%),
QCOM 3.7% (+45%), MSFT 3.8%(+116%), GOOG 4.5%(+6%), and NVDA 8.8% (+200%).

I am looking at selling U and APPS and perhaps TEAM (?) , increasing META to about 1.5 and looking for something new. Maybe SMCI - but after the parabolic increase in the last month maybe that needs to be on a pullback. Anything about this that you would do differently., including alternatives to SMCI ?
Take as many question credits as needed - many thanks.

Q: I hold the following in loss positions and need to raise some money and sell 2 of these dogs. In the past I have sold my winners hoping for recovery on the losers but I am trying to fight the psychology of that tendency. Could you rank these in with the 1st ranked being the highest conviction sell. Also, if inclined perhaps you could comment and provide your perspective on this most annoying human trait. John

Q: could you give us your case for PERI,as you seem to like it.
Why is PERI so much more compelling then for example APPS or AT?
Wouldn't you think advertising budgets decline in times of a recession?
It might be apples to oranges,but if having only one choice between INMD,AXON and PERI,which one would you pick?

Q: Hi 5i Team,

Lightspeed and Digital Turbine represent my biggest losers, down 60% and 70% respectively.
I am comfortable holding LSPD and APPS for a 5 year time frame but do you see some worthy growth for these two companies in that time or would you redeploy elsewhere?

Do you still believe in their growth story for the longer term?

A million thanks for all you do!

Q: I hold APPS in a USD portion of my TFSA (unfortuneatly) and am thinking to cut my losses. Do you think there would be better candidates that APPS could be swapped for at this time?

Q: Hi All at 5i!
I am giving my portfolio a spring cleaning. I have Arkk, Apps and Unity software, all of which are down significantly. I do not need the money and can hold these for at least 5 years. Is there hope for any of them should the market start performing better or are there inherent problems with them and should I just let them go . Your opinion is highly valued. Cheers, Tamara

Q: What is your long term view on these two companies? Is their structure, management, and financial condition such that holding on to them makes sense?
Do you have replacement suggestions that will likely surge ahead in more promising market conditions? Thank you.

Q: Hi team ,
I am holding onto smaller positions of the following names which I am down huge on : Sq, Twlo, Apps. I have held these through the tech wreck riding them to the ground. My question is do I keep holding onto them at this point waiting for more recovery , or do I consolidate them and buy a different position? If they are sells, what would be your most promising names to buy today? Some I were looking at were Ats, Crox , Bn. Thanks .

Q: Good Morning,

In my (hopefully) high growth basket of stocks, I would like to do some consolidation. The partnership with TikTok is supposed to be beneficial for Sprout Social, but with the security concerns about TikTok in the recent news, do you think that Sprout will be significantly impacted? If so (or if you no longer like Sprout) in what order might you consider adding to the following: LNTH, APPS, ATZ, INTU, ATD for a 3-year hold? Thanks. Brad
