Q: Hi there, I'm thinking of adding the following stocks to my portfolio to make up a total of 3% to 5% of my overall holdings - so a relatively small amount overall. Can I please have your thoughts on them and if you'd rate them as buy, sell or holds? And if sell or hold, which names would you replace them with?

Thank you!

Q: Good day,

I am looking for a good (over-priced) US stock to for a Put spread - one where the premium (implied volatility) is reasonable. I had a Put spread on TSLA, but got out of it when they announced the spilt (as those options, post-split, go to the liquidity wasteland). Thanks

ps. I would prefer a US stock, but if that is not doable, then CDN will do. Thx

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: Hello 5i,
I'm looking to add a couple of these stocks to my growth portfolio. I realize some are very new and comparisons maybe difficult but I'd like your opinion on which would have the best growth over the next 3-5 years. Also which would you prefer?
Thank you so much!

Q: I hold the above six securities in a taxable account in less than half positions. On a tax neutral basis I could sell OKTA,SNOW,GH and PLUG and split the proceeds between ROKU and CRWD to bring them to larger positions. These investments are part of a relatively agressive taxable portfolio.
Two questions - firstly, if you could rank the 6 stocks in accordance with your preference. Secondly, do you think my proposal would create a meaningful stronger position for growth.

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: Howdy,

AYX seems to be at a crossroad. It may turn things around and resume high growth by upgrading their cloud offering or perhaps be displaced due to their older server based software architecture. Should I sell AYX to initiate a position in NVDA or increase an existing CRWD position? Or just stay put with AYX to see how it turns out? Appreciate your opinion.

Q: 5i
I've held snow for a little while and was originally up about 20% but it has dropped back about 20% , so i am essentially at the point where i started . The earnings forecast for 2021 is only about 7-8% . At least from what i can find . Would you agree with this forecast ? Do you like the stock ? Would you keep it or look for something better.
Thanks for all your guidance throughout the past year .

Q: Happy New Year 5i,
A question was asked on Jan 04 which I will expand on. Can you rank the following in order to purchase for a 1-3 year hold at a minimum.
Many of the stocks are in a consolidation period after a sharp rise this year. Of the list, which 5 stocks would be considered a higher risk that they have not bottomed out or a correction may yet be due?

Thank you for your great service.
