Q: Dear 5i
From my readings it appears that LLY,ABBV and UNH would be your favourite healthcare stocks and in that order . Would you agree ?
Between my wife and i we have 3 RRSP accounts . Would you recommend putting the number one healthcare pick LLY in all three accounts or maybe LLY in one account , ABBV in another account and UNH in the third account ?
The same applies to DOL and ATD which seem to be your favourite consumer staples stocks . Earnings forecasts look better for DOL but ATD is liked a lot as well though ATDs earnings forecast isn`t as good as DOL .Do i put DOL in all three accounts or and DOL in one account and ATD in another and a combination of both in the third account ?
Please deduct credits accordingly .
Thanks

Q: I have a significant amount of cash to invest. I would like to allocate to some very high-quality stocks across various industries that can be bought and held for a long period of time so they can compound. If you could pick 10 companies that meet this criteria, what would they be? I was thinking about BAM, MSFT, V, COST, CP, UNH, HD, JNJ, GOOG, BRK.b but am open to suggestions or changes to this list. No banks or energy please.

Q: Hello, I saw that there are seven new CDRs from CIBC: Verizon, McDonald's, Nike, Starbucks, Coca-Cola, United Health, and Cisco. Without going into the CDRs versus buying on American exchanges debate, I am curious to know if some of these stocks are worth buying today, which ones, the reason why and in what order (from most compelling to least)., presumably for a 5-year holding period. Thanks.

Q: Hello 5i Team,

With the continued decline of stocks related to the semi-conductor industry (e.g. materials, fabrication, testing), is now a good time to buy for a 3+ year hold? Or should I wait for prices to settle?

Either way, could you please recommend 3 stocks for me to consider (not including NVDA, which I already own) and include a brief comment explaining each choice.

Thanks!
