Q: Would appreciate your guidance on building a healthcare portfolio with these names and any other suggestions divided into 2 categories [1] core [to constitute the bulk of the portfolio] and [2] growth, for a 3+ year hold. If you could add a few thoughts on each as to why you like or not, that would be most helpful.
Best wishes

Need an opinion on resizing my healthcare investment.

I hold GILD, ABBV, PFE in our portfolio; ABBV & PFE are doing well while GILD is barely breaking even. Your thought in replacing GILD with JNJ or go to IHI - a medical devices ETF.

Thank you !

Q: I have historically held my investments in mutual funds through a financial advisor. I subscribed to 5i Research approximately 3 years ago and made my first investments in equities and an ETF based primarily upon information obtained from 5i Research. The returns on VGRO ETF and my equities have been 2 to 4 times the gain for my mutual funds. I recently upgraded my subscription to include Portfolio Analytics. Based upon portfolio analytics, my current portfolio is reasonably well balanced with recommendations to add healthcare and industrials as well as some international exposure. I have cash on hand that I want to invest. I will hold my investments for the next 5 to 10 years. I am looking at purchasing some additional equities and an ETF with good growth potential at moderate risk. Please provide top 10 recommendations with rankings for stocks that I should consider adding to my portfolio. Please provide recommendations for top 5 ETFs with rankings that I should consider adding to my portfolio. What is your current view on VGRO? Would you suggest topping up my investment in VGRO?

Q: When comparing the two companies would you say there’s a lot of overlap in their businesses? Is one diversified enough in healthcare owning both and if not, which would you prefer? Also, could you recommend a few HC stocks that would compliment either? Thanks!
