Q: I have asked questions about core portfolio and compounders. I would like to refine my query to building a concentrated core portfolio [say, 20 CAD-USD total]. I start with the allocations greater than 5% in the 3 portfolios. BN is less than 5% on its own, yet, I wonder whether it would not be the core Canadian financial stock. As for US, there are many Fav lists, but could you boil it down to 10. For each stock, please provide key rationale for choosing it and a target buy price.
Much appreciated,

Q: Would you please comment on ABNB's latest results.

At this point in time what would be the buyer vs. the seller's thesis on the stock? Just things to consider, watch out for both positive and negative, etc going forward.

Thank you very much.

(PS. Please feel free to donate 50 of my question credits to anyone who would like some.)

Q: At a business university event in Miami on the beach with Jim Kramer as the speaker entertaining questions from business students (held on Feb 3), 2 of many stocks they had done their homework on were ABNB and PTON and Kramer agreed with them and so I bought ABNB the following Monday. They do not look as good as these students thought they were. I have looked at ABNB from a previous question on 5i, but that was over a month ago. Do you still like ABNB. I have not noticed anything on PTON lately. What are your thoughts? Your thoughts are appreciated as always.

Q: Hi 5i Team,

I own the above noted stocks as a smaller portion of my portfolio of higher risk names. All of these names are down other than CTS. Do you see any of these names as ones that I should sell as part of a portfolio clean up?

Thanks in advance,

Q: Hi 5i,

I have small positions in each of these three travel businesses. I was thinking of selling one to add to the other two, in an effort to be more efficient in my holdings. Would this be a good idea or would the diversification of holding all three be worthwhile?

If selling one, which would be your choice and why? I know you have recommended BKNG in the past but I sometimes wonder whether the other two have a stronger moat?

Growth investor with a long-term time frame.

Thank you, Doris
