Q: In your opinion, is it too late to get out of the higher valuation stocks like SHOP, CROWD, UNITY, APPS, CELH etc.? With 3-4 rate hikes coming possibly, would I be better off in the lower multiples like banks? Or is most of the damage already done?

Q: I know you answered a question this morning regarding CELH but I think there is some information you may not be aware of. On Friday Li Ka Shing and his friend Chau Hoi Shuen filed a 424B5 supplemental shelf offering to sell their 12.4M shares (16% of CELH). This is why the share price has tanked over 25% including todays drop. It worries me coming on the back of the news that there was an SEC inquiry in Dec of which we still don't know the details. Makes you wonder if the largest shareholders are bailing before the news drops? Anyway I worry this negative momentum will keep going. I never like panic selling into news etc. What are your thoughts?

Q: The above mentioned companies make up my US portion of my companies for a buy and hold retired growth investor. Given that they are evenly held, not well diversified and weighted to tech, Looking forward to 2022 do any of these cause any concern to you. NIO and UCTT have been underperforming the most. Would you trim or remove any of these?

Q: I bought these (and others) for growth, and was doing well, but am now in the red on these holdings. I bought for a five-year hold, so donít need to sell anything, but I would ask, do you see any that should be sold or any that I could be adding to for a January bounce? Thanks!

Q: Hi thank you for all that you do.

I would appreciate your thoughts on a top ten list for growth plays in the US for an RRSP. (1 ETF) Time horizon is on my side as Iím a younger investor, and a dividend is not important.

Also, can you please provide a grade for each stock chosen? Ex A -E as shown in the Report section.

Would this list be any different in a TFSA? If so, why?

Thank you and please deduct points as necessary.

Q: I notice CELH has been up and down between $87 and $97 over the past month. Anything causing this? The Entertainer from CNBC was very high on Netflix and Tesla. Netflix's stock dropped on a good earnings report I think because people had bid it up prior to the earnings report. Your opinion is needed before making a final decision on either one. Thank you.

Q: Am wondering which of these stocks are vulnerable to climbing interest rates. For the vulnerable ones, would you please advise at what point you would consider reducing or selling them. Also, a strategy on when and how to do such an assessment would be instructive.

Thanks for your great advice. Most of your subscribers say this regularly, but they probably really mean it ! If it weren't for 5i, I'd still be holding a bag of mutual funds not knowing how big my losses were.
