Q: Hi 5i Team,

I have approx. $100k USD of capital to deploy to a portfolio with a 3 to 5 year hold outlook with a focus on High Growth. Comfortable with higher risk.

I’d like to have meaningful position sizing so want to limit the # of stocks to 4.

The pool I am considering is COIN, SI, ROKU, NVDA, SHOP, AFRM, SQ, CRWD, and ZM.

My inclination so far is to go:
45% - NVDA – This just seemed like a must own to me. Semiconductor exposure in a supply-short environment along with the multitude of other things they support – AI, Gaming, Genomic sequencing etc. Hard to see how they won’t be over a trillion dollar market cap especially if the ARM acquisition is go (Risk factor).

25% - AFRM – BNPL adoption in North America is far behind that of Europe/APAC and I like AFRMs positioning as a consumer first proposition with transparency and AI with strong partnerships with AMZN, AAPL Canada and SHOP.

20% - COIN – Continued adoption of Crypto. Would use this as a proxy instead of going with ETFs/Fund exposure

15% - CRWD (Valuation risk so smallest position, but cybersecurity industry hasn’t matured yet with lots of runway remaining for a stock with strong MOAT)

I decided against SHOP due to how much growth they've already seen and potential impact on consumer spend from an inflationary environment.

Could you comment your thoughts / advice on the above? Any stocks that you would switch out or position sizing you’d recommend to reconsider?

Q: Can you speak to the class-action lawsuit filed against Coinbase?

What do you think of the future prospects for Coinbase? Their fees appear high relative to the competition, and the threat of commission free (or low fee) crypto exchanges looms large. Competitors, such as Kraken, are preparing to follow suit and go public. Is the Coinbase business model and continued growth rate sustainable?

Q: Relative to payment methods for the purchase of goods, bank sponsored debit and credit cards employ intermediaries such as VISA or Master Card.
This appears to be increasingly disrupted by tech companies that are not financial companies themselves, however I understand, have a bank in the background.
My question is: If I own VISA should I also consider owning PAYPAL or other to take advantage of the tech side of things thus giving my self a barbell approach? This is not a question on VISA or PAYPAL but on the benefits of investing in the new entities that seem to be appearing in the financial payment system.
