Q: Hi 5i team!!! Peter, as always , I really enjoyed your article in the National Post on Saturday. The inevitable question is…. What 5-10 small caps, which fit the criteria outlined , would you suggest for future gains when the market recovers? And would buying the Russel 2000 be a way to take advantage of such a potential rise of small caps in the US??
Tamara !( I asked two questions here )

Q: On October 31 the answer to a question I read compared LNTH to LLY as LNTH was a lot cheaper and would have more upside than LLY and big named actors were using the product as opposed to plastic surgery. Then I read very recently Peter's 5 2022 best percentage gains as having Lantheus Holdings (LNTH) first as he seemed very upbeat on it and mentioned it could pause a bit after having all these gains. Here I am 3 days into owning it and it is down over 12%. I read on my online account Nov 3 earnings were reasonably good but I also read on BNN Bloomberg that their earnings were not coming out until later so am I right about the earnings coming out today and were they worse than what I interpreted? I cannot interpret these earnings reports like 5i can. After being down that much in such a short period of time, I am wondering if I should sell or hold? Thank you,

Q: I retired last year and then setup a consulting company which keeps me busy less than half time. My accountant advised that setup an investment portfolio within the business banking account. I am looking at one CND bank ETF (25%), One dividend ETF (40%), and one growth ETF. (25%) I would like to add one or two CDN or US growth stocks representing 10% of the portfolio. Can you please give me some choices for the one or two growth stocks? Thanks again!

Q: good afternoon,
What would recommend buying in US small caps.
Maybe 3 stocks. I would complement with either IWO or the general small cap index.
Growth index should have more tork coming out of recession?

Q: Is it time to take a break from Alphabet for a while or is this going to be the bottom? Seems like there might be some better places to be for now. If yes, what would you choose right now? Thanks

Q: I own ILMN, VEEV, GH but not LNTH. Would you recommend a switch to LNTH for more growth? I can use ILMN and VEEV for a tax loss - should these be repurchased or just buy LNTH (or another stock?)for more growth?

Thanks for your service !

Q: Hello,

I've had these three healthcare companies on my watchlist for some time. Can I get your up-to-date assessment of each re: growth prospects and balance sheet stability? Would you consider any of them to be a buy and if so, in what order and is the current valuation reasonable?

Thank you, Doris

Q: Can you provide a 'buy' list for a person wanting to deploy $200,000 (inside RRSP) with the goal of creating 5% or more sustained cash flow - as well as growing the original capital to keep up with inflatiion? We do not have company pensions - this would serve to supplement our government pensions.
Thinking, 20 stocks across all sectors @ $10,000 each (or 5%)
Also could you include 10 growth stocks (inside TFSA) for a total of $250,000 - gotta have some fun ;)
Many Thanks

For each of those two categories could you please recommend 5 stocks for each group that meet the parameters Peter mentioned in the article. Thanks … Cal

Q: Thank you for the detailed response earlier on VEEV's quarterly report. You noted that you feel it is still a "decent" long term hold. I am wondering if you have any other US healthcare names that you have much higher conviction of that you might recommend replacing VEEV with? I have lots of time and VEEV currently sits in RRSP.


Read Answer Asked by Justin on September 06, 2022

Q: Would appreciate your guidance on building a healthcare portfolio with these names and any other suggestions divided into 2 categories [1] core [to constitute the bulk of the portfolio] and [2] growth, for a 3+ year hold. If you could add a few thoughts on each as to why you like or not, that would be most helpful.
Best wishes
