Q: I noticed that your position on Google has changed in the past couple of months. Previously, you were always recommending it as #1 stock for growth/risk combination, lately I don't see this recommendation anymore. At the moment, it is the worst performing stock in my portfolio and I am down over USD $20K on it. Unfortunately, it's in TFSA portfolio, so I cannot sell and claim cap loss. Do you still believe in bright future for Google considering the challenges (e.g. Microsoft combining efforts with Open AI to integrate chatGPT in Bing and challenge Google search dominance and, by proxy, ad revenue)? Considering that the stock is held in TFSA, would you keep it or sell and replace with something else? If you recommend selling, please list your suggestions. What is your current recommendation on the US market for better growth/risk equilibrium? Thanks!

Q: What are a few non-tech, non-financial stocks that you are high on right now?

Q: I read most of the questions and people asking for the top stocks that are going to do well over the next year or two. Four that are mentioned more than once are FIVE, CVRX, CELH and CPRX. In the case of CVRX, I have a about a 25% profit in less than 2 months. Do you think it has more room to run? Is there anything to worry about the other 3. I have CELH as well which seems to be very volatile. Again, much appreciated.

Q: Hi team,

Looking for strong growth names in my tfsa, I have been considering cheap stocks with potential. An alternative approach would be to look at names which have been doing very well this year and which still have momentum and potential. Grateful for your comments and some names which have wind in their sails.

Q: Hello Peter and Ryan,

I just read a negative research report on Guardant Health in Seeking Alpha, suggesting it may not be returning to its growth premium anytime soon. If you were to have a change of mind on seeing it as a HOLD, can you suggest a few compelling replacements from your current US high-growth list of favourites (within or outside of this sector)? Thanks, Brad

Q: Hi

For 2023, I can contribute $17,500 to my TFSA.

I was thinking of splitting the amount between CELH and LNTH.

Your comments or other suggestions are most welcome.

Thank you

Q: Hi,
I am up 84% in CELH in my TFSA. Considering selling 1/2 position and using the funds to purchase NVDA.
It will help me diversify because the only other US stock I have is GOOG.
Willing to wait 2 or 3 years to see NVDA return to it's former glory.
Sounds ok?
Or do you think CELH is just starting to really ramp-up and I should stay with it.
Thanks for your input.

Q: Morning 5i team, thanks for all the great advice you supply to the members.
I have $50K to invest and would like your advice. This is what Iím currently holding in my non registered account.


Considering my high exposure to Tech and your last market update, I might need to consider more consumer cyclical and financial stocks as well as others to balance the portfolio. Iím looking to have a mix of growth and value holdings.

I would appreciate your recommendations on new Canadian or US acquisitions and possible entry points. Can you recommend one of two of the US Tech stocks to sell and replace it with GOOG.

Please take as many credits a you see fit.

Q: Hey Team, thanks for holding strong during this rough time to be a portfolio manager. I have one ticket to add to the above list that didn't show up in your database, its EVVTY (Evolution Gaming) out of Stockholm. Anyway I consider many of these to be high quality compounders, with strong mgmt teams. Could you rank for me which companies you would add to now? Or if anyones you would avoid, let me know. Thx

Q: During the recent short run up these were up a lot: UPST was up 75%, CELH was up 22%, AFRM was up 70%, ARKW up 15%. They have not fallen back as much as others with this big drop in NASDAQ May 18. Should I be adding to them? They seem to outpace most of the other ones. Reading Seeking Alpha, GOOGLE's account in Russia was frozen and indicated they were going bankrupt in Russia and moving out of there. Doing a lot of research, I come across Jeff Brown (Micro chip expert) you probably are aware of him - and he said a Dutch company (I have heard of it before ASML - price is about $630) said this would be the number 1 chip stock for the next many years. More than one answer would be helpful for the above questions. I realize it may cost an extra credit or 2 for this. Thank you,

Q: Moving money from a poor performer to a better performer, talking about AFRM and U - both I could not find in your database when I tried to search them. I was going to move them to more better performers in the case of CRWD and NVDA. That should be a better place. I am north of 70 so waiting 5 years for these 2 to recover may not be an option here. Another 2 that one day they are up 10% and the next day they are down 10% - CELH and UPST. Are there any issues that have surfaced lately about the four mentioned securities thanks

Q: In line w/ sentiments expressed in the latest market update (thank you for that), would you put any of these names in the "likely beyond repair column"? Or do they all fall firmly in the "damaged but not broken" column?
