In an otherwise balanced portfolio, I'm looking for some ideas for my TFSA.
Current holdings are KXS, LULU, HPS AND ATS.

I'm open to adding to the above names but was wondering if you

Q: Morning 5i team,
I bough URI back in May 2023 and have done quite well over a short period of time. It's close to it's all time high and although it might have some more upside potential, it may be limited.
I'm thinking of switching from URI to AMZN for a possible better return.
What are your thoughts on the switch or should I stay the course or would you suggest a different stock to switch to.
I currently hold AAPL, GOOG, MSFT and NVDA in that account.
Your thoughts and reasons for your suggestions are appreciated.

Have a great day.
