Q: What do you think of airbnb and uber? i use both companies a lot and like them.

Can you give me your thoughts on each in terms of: valuation, growth prospects, how they stack up to peers, and how good the ROE is?

Would you say one is better than the other? I assume they are both pretty GDP sensitive w/how much travel and leisure spending impacts them

Q: 1. What percentage do you advise allocating to discretionary sector.

Q: I've got these laggards in a TFSA or RRSP, down between 15-36%! I want to dump a bunch (all?) as I feel I've given them enough time to perform and they haven't. Does 5i see catalysts in the next 12 months for any of these that i should keep some?

In which order would you drop them.

Q: Could you do a quick review of the 3 online activity/trip/booking companies and provide your order of buying with a short explanation of your most preferred to least preferred. If you believe there's a better investment than these three in this sector, which would it be and why is it better? Thanks so much for all you do. Regards, John

Q: Hi Team,
What’s your view on ABNB these days? The stock has been wanting to trend higher this year so far. Is the inclusion into the s and p an ongoing catalyst? I am trying to decide whether to keep it , or sell it while I am now positive on the name . I am a little concerned over regulations such as what NY has just done to them . I was debating if I sold it using the funds to add to my positions in LMN and Well. Looking for the biggest potential long term. Would you endorse the move , suggest a different name not mentioned instead , or just continue to hold ?

Thanks ,
