Q: Hi guys,

Here are my u.s. holdings and percentage; cost 5.5%, nvda 5%, msft 4.5%, J 3.5%, amzn 3%, crwd 2.75%, abbv 2%, U 1.5%, upst 1.5%, veev 1.5% plus 2 etf's, arkk 3%, spy 3.5%
(Also i2i fund 1.5%)
Are there any red flags here or changes that you would recommend for a growth/balance portfolio? The rest of my portfolio is a cross between your (5i's) balance and growth funds.
Happy new year and stay safe,
