Q: I was planning on growing my position in these companies during 2022 in my TFSA account. Is there any of these companies you wouldn't invest in or replace for an other company (please indicate witch company you would replace it by).

Also can you say in what order you would rank these companies from highest to lowest, highest being you favourite and lowest least favourite?

Q: Hi 5i team.
Looking for at least 3-5 year and likely longer hold on cybersecurity stocks or ETF. Would invest about 2 % of my equity funds in this.
Need high conviction for longer term capital preservation though I am quite OK with volatility. (A lot of tech stocks currently are relatively on sale.)

What would be your top 2 stocks and/or ETF recommendation? What price would you consider buying in at for your top recommendations.
Thank you so much.

Q: I am interested in investing part of my TFSA in cyber security US/Canada stocks/ETFs.
Are Cyber Security ETF (CYBR-T) and Evolve Cyber Security ETF (CAD Hedged) good buy? Are CrowdStrike (NASDAQ:CRWD) and Palantir Technologies (NYSE:PLTR) good buy at their current price levels and are they high risk/high valuation, strong growth stocks?
Please provide the preference of your choices of three cyber security stocks and three ETFs and rank them, and brief reasons why you choose those stocks/ETFs. Thank you.

Q: Hi Team,
I sold MRS at a 66% loss in my TFSA. Should I put the leftover money towards PINS, EGLX, PLTR, LSPD or WELL? Please list in order or preference. Or should I wait in the new year with the additional funds that I will add?
Thanks

Q: Hi,
Last year around this time, you were asked to guess a few names in the US or CDN Market that had 100 bagger potential. Some of the names mentioned were WELL, TTD, LSPD, XBC, MGNI, PLTR, VEEV, PINS, KRR, & STC. Just wondering if there were any names you would add or delete from this list? I realize identifying the next 100 bagger is next to impossible, just for some fun.
Thanks

Q: I am looking to offset some capital gains received this year from PEO and PHO (thanks!). Currently I have the following holdings in a loss position, in order of dollars down: TDOC, TV, XBC, HAL, XEG, NFI, SQ, TECK.B, XTC, WELL, ENGH, PLTR. I would need to sell the first six to fully offset the gain, or could sell more if using those in a smaller loss position. How would you rank these holdings in order of selling, and which of these would you look to buy back after 30 days (if any)? Note that these are held within a broad portfolio that I am also looking to consolidate.

Q: Could you give your thoughts on PLTR's growth outlook. We are all well aware that with their stock based comp being very high, debt level, and still being not profitable that they need to grow faster than their stock based dilution or that will be bad news for shareholders. Which is fine if they can pull that off. But mgmt recently said they expect >30% growth for the next 5 years. But then this quarter core growth fell to below 25%. They already fell below the 30% growth rate 2 quarters into their 5 year projected >30% growth. Is this a big concern?

Q: Since I bought Pltr at $29 from my Tfsa, it keeps going down , it was back to $29 for one day, then it dropped again. I want sell Pltr and buy Sklz. Wondering if Sklz is similar business like Eglx? Would you buy Sklz at current price or what would be a good entry price to get in? It has been moving up for over a week, or should I wait until after report earnings on November 3, your thoughts please, thanks

Q: Hello team,

I am up 40% on CAE, which I don't think is going any farther until planes are back in the sky in a meaningful way. Would you agree?

If you more or less agree, I am thinking of selling CAE and put the proceeds to one or two of the followings ordered base on my losses in each. The original investment is almost the same amount in each stock with the exception of BLFY which was 1/2 of others:

U (+7%)
Appl (-1%)
ABNB (-5%)
PLTR (-6%)
CRNC (-23%)
BLFY (-40%)
PINS (-28%)

Would you average down or would you sit tight? I know you don't like averaging down in general, but I thought I would ask as sometimes there are better growth opportunities and it does make sense to build up a larger position.

Thanks for the help!

Read Answer Asked by Saeed on October 13, 2021

Q: Hi 5i,
I have the following in a non-registered (and high risk tolerance) account:
LSPD (+55%)
GAN (-21%)
XBC (-65%)
QUIS (+21%)
AMY (+28%)
PLTR (-15%)
NANO (-28%)
OPS (+37%)
PLUG (-62%)

1. Is there any names on this list that you would consider selling at a loss and re-deploying elsewhere?

2. I'd like to buy LSPD in my separate registered account considering the sharp drop over the past couple weeks. Is there any limitations on owning the same stock in both registered and non-registered accounts? I am comfortable in my overall position so that would not be a concern.

Please deduct credits as you see fit.

(There is a chance I've submitted this question twice; if so, please answer this one. My browser crashed during my first submission and I'm not sure if the first one went through.)

Thanks for your insight,
Kyle

Q: Hi Team,
I was debating whether I should sell PLTR to buy MORE of either NVEI or LSPD. Which do you see having more long term potential here? Or should I simply keep holding PLTR? It is a little frustrating watching it go from being up 14% after hours last night to only 1% as I write this. Seems like nothing wants to move the needle anymore with PLTR. Thanks

Shane.
