Q: My question has two aspects. One genral and another one specific
First. numerous analysts and professional investors (and not necessary professional short term traders) use to claim a golden rule saying if a company following poor results in the earnings season, slides 10% or about, you sell immediately and the sooner the better. What is your position on this issue?
Second. What kind of application could be envisaged in the specific case of a stock like Cloudflare with a recent splash of more than 17%?

Q: Hi Peter,

Recently, Gabriela Borges of Goldman Sachs Goldman Sachs initiated a Sell rating on Cloudflare (NET) with a $51 price target. The analyst believes emerging software industry dynamics are favorable for long-term investors. Multi-product platforms have gained momentum, the industry is less cyclical, and unit economics outperform broader software. However, for Cloudflare, the analyst believes that the path to executing $5 Billion in annual recurring revenue will likely not be linear. Over the medium term, the risk/reward is skewed negative for the stock.

What is your opinion of NET from a short-term and medium-term risk/reward perspective? Please explain your rationale.

Q: Dear 5i team.

I'm considering adding to my IHAK position but wanted to clear up something with you first.
In the archives, you mentioned that a combination of CRWD/NET/PANW would be an alternative to owning the ETFs IHAK or HACK. Are you still of this view? Do you still prefer IHAK to HACK?
Are the valuations of these holdings back to a level that reflects current realities?

Many thanks for your help.

Q: Hello 5i Team,

I'm down considerably in these US stocks in a taxable account: APPS, DIS, DXCM, EXPI, FB, NET, NFLX, U, and UPST.

I would like to crystallize some losses.

Could you please suggest:

1. The stocks I should sell outright (and suggest a replacement);

2. The stocks I should sell and then re-buy in 30 days (and suggest a proxy); and

3. The stocks I should continue to hold.

Feel free to subtract as many credits as required.

Thank you for your valuable advice!
