Q: Hello Peter,
I have partial positions in AVLR and DXCM and have been considering AFRM and CRNC.
I think that the potential for CRNC is further on the time frame, while AFRM has to demonstrate its growth potential in the next couple of quarters. Dexcom has to confirm its growth whereas AVLR has to demonstrate that it can still grow to justify the valuation. What do you think?
Now I cannot own everything that is of interest and would like your opinion on whether I should in my portfolio have a full position in one of them or partial positions in two. And which one, or two would you suggest?

Q: (Part 2 with 6 new companies) I watched a presentation on Saturday where analysts fielded audience company suggestions and whittled them down to a few that they felt could 10 X in a reasonable time frame. I am wondering if you can look at this six and rank based on potential? For the top two, it would be great if you can discuss the TAM, impact of market value and shares outstanding, if they are solving a new problem/creating a new market and quality of management. Basically, why those two?
