Q: We have money put away for a 17-year old's growth portfolio (long time horizon of over 10 years, no need for income and willingness to take risk).
Portfolio already has VTI, SKYY, BYD, TSU & SHOP. Thinking of adding DCBO for the balance of cash. Would you endorse this? Or would you recommend a different holding?

Q: Two years ago, energy fund managers were pounding the table to buy oil and gas stocks.
Whoever listened did great.
Now tech prices continue to plummet. The prices are off 60-80%.
Should I pick a few and wait two years for a similar upsurge?
Would you buy shop, lspd, dcbo, toi, nvei or nvda and please rank them with a brief overview.
Thank you.

Q: Hi 5I
I have $180,000 split evenly amongst above companies in RRSP. I was going to begin withdrawing $10,000 every year and am looking for strategy to draw down to maximize growth of account.

This is a story in the Globe and Mail dated Sept 25th 2021. The article made all lot of sense and there seems to be a disconnect with growth at all cost with no profit. Maybe this is how things are done just look at how our government is run.

I don't have a specific question to any of the companies mentioned above but with LSPD in the news lately maybe it will apply. I know there has been a short report put out on LSPD and from some of the comments that I am reading from 5i that they are false.

My question is how do you know?

We don't know the real workings of a company and what we get from them is what they want us to hear. Take for example XBC, that wiped out all of value from investors because we didn't get the correct information from Management. It's what they wanted us to hear and we believed them.

I think there should be some healthy skepticism with regards to what Management says and does and investors should take away that capital preservation is paramount.

If LSPD or any company that gets shorted and can't explain the reasons for the discrepancy in a respectfully dialogue then maybe there is some truth to it but like I said we don't really know.

Who is right? The short trader or the Stock promotor?

Until we get all the information it will always be Buyer Beware and don't fall in love with any stock.

Q: Over the last couple of months a lot of Canadian tech stocks have seen huge gains in a very short time.

CSU from $1,730 to $2,130
DCBO from $65 to $104;
DSG from $70 to $97;
KXS from $135 to $199;
LSPD from $85 to $131;
MAGT from $26 to $55;
NVEI from $100 to $161;
TOI from $80 to $125.

1) Do you think this is getting overdone and are we due for some kind of correction in this sector?

2) Are any of the above still good buys after these large, rapid price increases?

3) Are there any Canadian tech stocks that have "missed the party" so to speak, haven't seen large rapid price increases like those above, and are good buys currently?
