Q: You have replaced OTEX with NVEI. I currently own LSPD so would it be better to buy TOI instead of NVEI or would you suggest a different stock?

Q: Hello Peter and team,
Can you expand on your answer please on Topicus and Nuvei? You had indicated these are good growth names but add when there is a sustained recovery in tech.. how does one gauge it? Do we use technical analysis and also it seems that yield curve may flatten should that not bode well for tech? With rising rates, banks are supposed to do well but i see a decline.. Is the view now that only short term rates will go up and long term may not go up much; lastly, do you think Abcellara is a good buy now?

Q: Hi 5I gang

I just want to confirm that thru this "risk on" period which will sustain for the foreseeable future, I am doing the correct thing by "holding" as opposed to "selling" these growth stocks.

Q: What are the best types of stocks to include in TFSA for long term hold (15-20yrs) with medium risk tolerance? Growth only or growth + income? Have heard that dividend stocks in TFSA can be good as income can compound over time tax free but if the growth outperformes the dividend yield would that not be better? Also could you include your top 10 Canadian picks right now for allocation in TFSA (sector doesn't matter)? Thanks

Q: Comprised of the above Canadian companies, our TFSA represents a small portion of our overall portfolio and is its most growth oriented component. All investments are made with the intent to be long-term holds (10+ years).

Two of the holdings, AT and LSPD are down over 50%, while FSV, GSY, NVEI and WELL are all down by about a third. We intend to do some rebalancing. How would you rate (1-10) these 6 for additional money today? Please include a brief explanation for the ratings.

Finally, if you could add one more Canadian company to the mix, what would it be?

Q: Hi 5i,
I read your market update with interest. You guys tend to be adders and trimmers as I am. You made a lot of incremental adds to various positions. I was surprised by the complete exit from OTEX at 4%. I believe you said on a number of times that one should not sell a good company unless there has been a fundamental change in the company, management or outlook. I do not see any fundamental change with OTEX. You said the stock has been a laggard. One always has some laggards in a portfolio. A steady eddy name can actually help you in these markets. Removing a 4% position seems out of sync with your style.
Thanks again.

P.S. Peter, great session with TD yesterday, even though I am not really a small cap guy.

Q: Up until now, I have only part full or nearly full positions in a stock while trying to keep my total number of stocks under 30 in number. However, I am now considering taking a slightly different approach and buying a basket of some beaten-up stocks, likely from those noted above.

Since I am new to this strategy, my question is, what would you consider to be a useful percentage to devote to a stock that will allow for meaningful gains while limited individual risk? I'm thinking 1% is too little, 1.5% might be enough and certainly no more than 2%.

Your insight is appreciated.

Q: Hello Peter and team
What are the PE ratios for Nuvei and Shopify? Could you please provide your view on Greenlane Renewables and Ballard Powers recent results?

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?

Q: Hello Peter,
What do you think of Gladstone Land? Shopify and Nuvei are both experiencing downwards momentum. What upward signals would you use to add to these two stocks? Would it be 50 day moving averages or is there a price that would make sense showing upward movement? Thanks very much

Q: We know uncertainty helps the markets drop. With Russia saying they are drawing back troops and NATO and USA say they are building up, one could anticipate uncertainty ahead. With this in mind, is there any advice for which type of stock might be the best to buy on a future dip?
