Q: Good Morning 5i Team,

I hold TOI, CTS, ENGH in one account as my small cap technology allocation. Price action of course has been brutal since last fall. Would you continue to hold all three names or would you recommend getting rid of one or more ?? Would you add to any ?? Do you have any alternatives that may have better risk / reward in an eventual tech recovery ?? Thanks very much for your help. DL

Q: I bought NVIDIA years ago and have been considering trimming as Iím overweight, and now want to take advantage of stocks that have recently dropped. I am a long term investor focused on growth with medium-high risk, what 3-4 stocks Canadian and U.S. do you recommend to help compliment my holdings? My US holdings are GOOG, COST, ISRG, V and my CAD tech holdings are CSU, TOI, KXS, and STC.

Q: Hi Team,
TOI has had a rough couple days. Today as of writing down another 5%. At $62 a share today would you consider this a great buy? Is there any news that is making the stock drop extra bad today compared to some other tech stocks that are rallying some today? Also...even though oil is more in favour in todays market, would you consider selling some of either WCP, BTE, or TVE to buy into TOI weakness? And would you consider TOI a better long term hold than an oil stock?Thanks

Q: Of these four stocks, Lightspeed seems to be the most volatile. Jumps the most on good days and drops the most on days like Monday.
My son's RESP needs a quick boost - he is going into second year.
Would you buy all four or just Lightspeed and hope for the best? No diversification concerns, just an outright roll of the dice.

Q: I have the above companies in my TFSA which, due to the tech sell off, are now down to about 1/3 of a full position. I do not require any money from my TFSA for at least 10 years so have a long timeframe. I also own a full position of CSU in my wifeís TFSA which I will continue to hold.
I am thinking of selling one of these positions and distribute the proceeds in the remaining positions.
Could you rank upside potential of these companies?
Or should I just leave it alone and let time be my friend?

Q: Hi Team,
Today seen some big % moves by many growth/ tech names; which seemed to come out of no where. Overall, what is your sense on where we are in this pullback? Is it time to start buying some beat down tech names? This being said, if you feel a person should be doing some buying at this time; what are your most convincing buys from todays levels? Some of the stocks I was looking at are SHOP (currently not owned), or add to either of this list which I currently own all: ATZ, TOI, U, RBLX, SQ. Currently I feel like we are watching a major buying opportunity unfold before our eyes...similar to oil stocks a couple years ago and feel I might regret not adding some new funds at this point to some high quality tech names that have been sold off some 50-75% in many names. Also, generally speaking; if a person is looking at holdings that are down say 60% (which I am with RBLX,U, APPS)...should we be doubling down? It seems if not it's almost hopeless to break even from these excessively sold off levels. Deduct as many credits as necessary. Thanks

Q: HI, This retired income couple want to invest 5K for our 20 year old grand daughter from our TFSA. To do so we have to sell some of our holdings in this account. Our largest holding SLF to our smallest TPZ are available with profits in most. Please suggest best to worst to select for raising the necessary cash. Our plan is to use the cash to purchase VGT.US or perhaps your other preferred etfs to be used in about 3-5 years. Thanks

Q: I own these 3 stocks. I would like to own only one for a long term investment, as they all seem to be in the same field. Is this a good idea or are they different enough to hold all 3.
Thank you!

Read Answer Asked by Donna on May 30, 2022

Q: Please rank the following companies for long term holds in a TFSA, with a management rating for each. (10 being the best)

Also, I currently hold SHOP and CSU.. Do you feel LSPD and TOI overlap these larger companies too much to consider a position ?

Please suggest any other Canadian companies not listed for long term holds.

Thanks for everything! Cheers
