Q: Hello,

I have small positions in these 6 stocks, all in the red - MTCH, ROKU, GNRC are in registered accounts, RBLX, UPST, ZM in non-registered. I don't find it easy to sell any stocks but in the spirit of 'pulling weeds', can I get your opinion on which of these, if any, you would sell. Any that might be worth adding to at their current valuation?

Thank you for your insights, Doris

Q: Hello,

Are there any US or Canadian companies you see as attractive opportunities for medium to short-term option plays? Short-term being less than a year (3-6 months, medium-term being 1-2 years. I understand these short-term price changes can really be a toss-up, but am cautiously optimistic about the market pricing in current fears and moving upwards over the next year.

Also, am wondering if this specifically would be attractive to you: GOOGL $1.81 @ 110 Strike April 21 Expiration

Q: These are my candidates for tax loss selling. As a proxy for OKTA I intend to add to my existing position in CRWD, would you agree with that strategy? As for the other 3, I do not intend to buy proxies however I would consider repurchasing after 30 days. Do you suggest proxies for these 3? Also, would you repurchase. Thank you.

Q: Hello 5i,
I own all the above stocks and have ridden them up and down in this market, so my risk tolerance is fairly high.
Could rank them for future growth and survivability? Also, If I were to consolidate the five into two or three what might you recommend?
Thank you
Dave

Q: UPST has been a disappointing stock. In my TFSA, there is no opportunity for tax loss harvesting here. What US alternates would you suggest, not necessarily in the same category, that may give excellent growth potential in a market turnaround?

Q: I have significant losses in these companies. I don't need tax losses.

Should I average down on these companies or is there any of these companies that I should sell and move on?

Q: I invested some speculative capital in the above companies last year in a taxable account. Terrible timing. As we near the end of the year, I plan to sell some of these for tax loss harvesting and use the funds to average down in the others. Which would you sell and which would you average down?
Also somewhat related to this is the fact that I feel as much as thereís a good buying opportunities in some U.S. stocks right now, the high U.S. dollar makes it hard for me to convert CAD funds to USD. Am I right to hold off on currency conversion for now?

Q: I am planning to sell these names for tax-loss. Should I buy a replacement for each to protect against a turnaround in the next 30 days, or do you think I'm better off holding the cash for that period given the current outlook for equities. If you still recommend replacements can you offer a suggestion for each - or perhaps only for some? Thanks.
