Q: What do you think about tax-loss selling each of the above companies at this point? If in favour, do you think I should buy 30 day proxies for each, and if so, what companies? Thanks.

Q: Hello 5i Team,

I'm down considerably in these US stocks in a taxable account: APPS, DIS, DXCM, EXPI, FB, NET, NFLX, U, and UPST.

I would like to crystallize some losses.

Could you please suggest:

1. The stocks I should sell outright (and suggest a replacement);

2. The stocks I should sell and then re-buy in 30 days (and suggest a proxy); and

3. The stocks I should continue to hold.

Feel free to subtract as many credits as required.

Thank you for your valuable advice!

Q: Good Morning.
I presently have UPST in a TFSA account. It is down significantly without tax loss sale possible. I have read that the new Apple payment system is disruptive to Block (Square) and to Affirm. What is your opinion on this and would UPST be significantly affected? Is it wise to continue to hold UPST or should I consider moving some funds into AAPL? Thank you.

Q: Hi Team,

Have the fundamentals of these guys really changed that much?

It seems to me the biggest change is the fear or delinquencies?

Do you see decent chance of pretty good gains 3 years from now or is bankruptcy a real possibility? I have read speculation that banks may cut them off if they see a rise in charge-offs

Q: Hi 5i Team - Would you consider any or all of Unity, Roku and Upstart as oversold. Also could you suggest a few U.S. stocks that may be oversold at this point - besides the possibility of the ones mentioned. Thanks.

Q: During the recent short run up these were up a lot: UPST was up 75%, CELH was up 22%, AFRM was up 70%, ARKW up 15%. They have not fallen back as much as others with this big drop in NASDAQ May 18. Should I be adding to them? They seem to outpace most of the other ones. Reading Seeking Alpha, GOOGLE's account in Russia was frozen and indicated they were going bankrupt in Russia and moving out of there. Doing a lot of research, I come across Jeff Brown (Micro chip expert) you probably are aware of him - and he said a Dutch company (I have heard of it before ASML - price is about $630) said this would be the number 1 chip stock for the next many years. More than one answer would be helpful for the above questions. I realize it may cost an extra credit or 2 for this. Thank you,

Q: Hi 5i
Some themes are very hot for a while and then go stone cold. The fintech stocks have all crashed and burned. Do you think this is a buying opportunity on some of these names for the next 3 years or so? Or are there some that you would not buy at all as recovery is doubtful? How would you rank these ones for new purchases?
Thanks.

Q: Down significantly on these names, wondering at these level if you would still hold on for a better market, if so which ones or swap them out for other stocks that are down and may have a better chance to recover.
