Q: MF came out with a list of AI today, and they are all up today, presumably on the news. Is there a concern that this is turning into a bubble? I know there will be spending here, but is it getting away into the danger-zone? I am considering an etf that captures a wide swath of AI. Are you able to suggest something? Thanks!

Q: Hi 5i team,

I have a growth and long term outlook and looking to trim some losers and replace with some winners. Of the following stocks, do you feel any need to hold for the long term? Also, what are some US/CAD replacements you would recommend and can you rank from highest to lowest based on overall strength?

Thanks 5i team.

If so, what are your recommendations for a growth investor in either CAD/US stock options?

Q: Hi , Peter & Team:

I'm in the process of selling some of the losers to offset the capital gain. Which of the above Co. may not rebound as well, that is the most likely to sell now, to the ones least likely to sell ( worth holding).
Take as many credit as you see fit. Thank you for all the great service and advice you have given through the year.

Q: I'm down >50% on LMND in my TFSA account, and while the loss itself doesn't alarm me, I'm doubting the future potential of their business model - especially with rising rates. I'm considering selling this position and re-investing into another company that I'm also down significantly on (RDFN) but that I have higher conviction in. Would love to hear your thoughts? Thank you.

Q: Hi 5i

Can you assign a rank on the future potential for each of these companies on a scale of 1-10? 1 being dead in the water and 10 being amazing potential from current levels?

If you have 1-2 favs from this list, what makes them better than the rest?

Q: I have done alot of tax loss selling, starting in Oct. The stocks include XBC, CHEWY, LMND, PINS, RDFN, TDOC, EGLX, REAL, MRS, ABCL, and ZNGA. Which ones would you repurchase? Would you do it now, or wait until the new year? I purchased LSPD, NVEI , and APPS with some of the proceeds, and that has not worked out well! Would you average down on these names when they stabilize?

Q: As I watch the growth stocks in my portfolio get crushed I can't help but also feel excited at the buying opportunities that are being created for others I thought I had missed. With the Nasdaq only 1200 points off its high and companies like TWST (down 57%), LMND (down to 60%) or BOMN (down 50%) or NVTA (down 55%) it is undeniable that many of these stocks have been revalued.

My question pertains both to these specific companies and smaller caps in general. Do you think companies like these are close to finding a floor meaning that it is time to start buying in tranches as they inch down or do you consider it more likely that we need a major sell off and full capitulation?

With these specific companies, what would be an entry price that makes sense for each for the first 1/2 and then a full position. (ie buy a 1/2 of LMND at 75 and then full at 60 if it gets there).

Q: Hello team,

Thanks to your suggestions, I am considerably up in tech. I bought lemonade awhile ago and am planning on selling tomorrow. I also own Crowdstrike and I am thinking of adding to my positions, although with the recent gains, I am thinking of maybe holding off. If you could please suggest a momentum growth stock that maybe hasnít been getting attention lately, or if it is better to hold off till after tax selling in January. Love 5i! Thank you for service and Happy Holidays!!
