Q: Hi 5i Team. Thanks as always. I'm looking to start some positions in the USD side of my TFSA over the course of the next month or so. I'm particularly interested in good growth opportunities in the following sectors: Technology, Healthcare, Industrials and Communications. Can you suggest a few US stocks within each of these sectors that are some of your best ideas right now? I am open to all types of suggestions, but already having a few larger caps (MFST, ABBV, LMT) I would prefer small or mid-cap suggestions where possible. Please take as many credits as necessary - thanks again.

Q: Hi,
I hold the above companies in my TFSA and would like to make the portfolio more concentrated for better upside potential. If you were forced to cut three positions and add the proceeds to any of the existing holdings, which one’s would you choose? Long term growth is the only objective.

Q: Hi guys. I know I’ve harped on this before. When you have a newsletter with thousand of subscribers and you reccomend illiquid stocks it creates frustration with your readers.
For instance with mrs an opening position for me wound be $50000 which is fully half the volume on Thursday. If I put in a market order which I wouldn’t I alone would drive the price up by @approx 20%.
How do readers like me get to participate? Especially on the Venture?

Q: I'm down ~15-20% on these names and contemplating a tax loss swap.
For each of these, do you think there are suitable proxies or are they are hard to replace?
For FLNT in particular, I'm considering dumping it all together, so a similarly battered small-cap name you think will perform better will work as well.
Finally, when it comes to tax-loss selling, do you have a rule of thumb on the % down a name should be before it makes sense, or it's generally situation dependant?

Q: Hi
I am trying to find out more about the lawsuit against MITEK you reference in your March 16 response to a question from Joel. I found a USAA lawsuit against MITEK which was settled in 2014 and a lawsuit where MITEK sued USAA in 2019 claiming USAA's litigation against MITEK's customers "placed a cloud over MITEK's products and services." Is this the lawsuit you were referencing? Thanks

Q: Risk tolerance in TFSA high. Both spouses are vested in defined benefit pension. 5 to 15 year timeframe. I am thinking of slowly adding to existing XBC position and initiating MITK position. Would you suggest waiting until after XBC reports? I worry a good buying opportunity will be lost if we don't add to that position in advance. Do we have a timeframe around the MITK legal situation?

Q: Looking to add another U S company to either my cash or TFSA account. I have followed MITK for awhile and I believe you like it. I notice it has pulled back a bit. Would it be a good addition and to which account? U. S stocks I presently own are SQ, V, BHVN, AAPL, DIS, FSLY, and ABCL. Do you have another suggestion that I may consider?
Thanks John
