Q: Hi what are the chances that any of these names will be going to the capital markets and issue more stock?
They are all doing very well,so they might be tempting to issue more stocks.
How would you rate those for stock as a buy right now?

Q: Could I have your top 5 growth picks in Canada & USA. Thank you BOB

Q: I am thinking of reducing these 3 techs by 50%, then re-buying in November. Reason: rapid gains over the summer likely at risk due to traditional volatility in September. Maybe even do the same with MG until chip shortage gets sorted. Does this tactic make sense? If so, are there other obvious stocks you would include?

Q: Greetings 5i,

The company's listed are TFSA holdings. The goal of the TFSA is moderately aggressive growth. Time frame is 4-8 years. Equities are purchased in equal weights and rebalanced based on weighting.

SLF and BNS are also held in other accounts, at an overall portfolio percent of ~5-6%. Which would you recommend adding to at this time? What do you consider the weakest from this list? Would you consider removing any from the TFSA holding only in either a non reg or reg account? If so, why? And which one, two or three additional growth oriented companies, either CAD or USD would you recommend.

Take as many credits as required.

Thank you for the excellent service.

Q: Hi !

I am looking to invest in perhaps just one of the above companies.
I learned the hard way about prioritizing the preservation of capital.
Would you tell me which of the above companies is best in terms of highest chance of capital being preserved?

While I am here, would be able to suggest three other companies that are both poised for greatness and offer an excellent capital preservation profile?

Thank you!

Q: Friday messy fun question, please take it lightly. I would like to start reducing the oil companies I bought in April last year. They've done incredibly well, but now I would like to increase my tech growth stocks by opening 1 or 2 new positions. I currently own GOOG, DND, U, CRWD, RDFN, ROKU, VEEV, PINS, and SQ. They have done well under your recommendations even with the recent pullbacks. As no one can time the markets, I am not willing to wait for a surprise interest hike as it is part of a locked-in RSP. It would be a 10+ hold. 1) Without considering size, could you please rank your favourite top 5 companies addressed in this question as of today in terms of strong balance sheet & steady growth potential over time (even in an interest hike environment). 2) Could you please give a brief explanation for the #1 pick only. Thank you very much as always!

Q: Hi ,
With wild swings up and down with high growth tech stocks, its my opinion that nothing has changed other than their markets caps and the price. In some cases they have even become cheaper then they were, EV/sales etc. I decided to hold on to my high growth stocks as the "underlying business" fundamentals have not changed. In some cases, they have even got better.
My portfolio is down roughly 40%, which i would consider quite normal during a pullback of this sorts.
Would you agree with my thinking ?

Q: I sold my shares on SHOP the day before its earnings release which turned out to be a good move, and I lost my LSPD after its earnings to a stop loss at $90. I'm thinking that if I want to get back into one of them that LSPD would be preferred at this time because it will benefit from the re-opening trade, particularly restaurants, whereas re-opening will be of little benefit to SHOP. Do you agree?
