Q: Hi 5i Team,

I have owned APP's for 1.5 years and am down significantly (70%). I know you have been generally optimistic about its fundamentals but I guess I need some reassurance in these turbulent times.

Do you still find their fundamentals and growth prospects compelling? And if you so could you explain what makes it an attractive HOLD or BUY. Respecting there is no crystal ball do you feel that in 12 months things will look rosier for the stock?

Many thanks to you all for your steady hand in such rough market conditions!

Looking toward a recovery in the market, do you see any holdings that have a lesser chance of recovery, that should be sold to add to another position that has a better chance of recovery? Thanks!

Q: I sold TTD and AMZN to realize a tax loss more than 30 days ago and I know that I can buy them back today with no issues. I bought ROKU and SHOP respectively as proxies a week later with the proceeds. They are both down (I guess things don't always work out!). The first question is can I sell both of these and claim a tax loss despite my not having owned them for 30 days?

Secondly, I am assuming you would recommend buying AMZN back (not that you don't like SHOP) but would you still re-purchase TTD? Does APPS offer a potentially better return? Or might you stay the course with ROKU? It appears to me that these companies are similar businesses.

Appreciate your insight.
