Q: A number of these companies have done very well recently while others have not. Could you rate these as Buy/Hold/Sell and for those you consider a buy, could you provide what you feel is a good entry point.

Thank you

Q: In Chris's recent webinar he mentioned the similarities between TCS and DSG as well as the same between GSY and TCS.

Now my question here is if I was only to own one of each of the two which ones have the best opportunities for growth going forward and which meets Warren Buffets criteria most closely?

Q: What would you consider a good entry point for these companies?
Read Answer Asked by Gordon on February 14, 2024
Q: This question concerns the technology sector in a well-diversified Canadian portfolio (~30 holdings), focused slightly toward growth.

The current technology holdings are CSU, SHOP, DSG and KXS. With the exception of KXS, the holdings are all positive. We are considering replacing KXS with LMN.

For a long term hold, which of KXS and LMN would you prefer and why?

Thank you,

Read Answer Asked by Peter on February 07, 2024
Q: I have owned KXS for several years and although I am not unhappy with its performance it is rather volatile. DSG which is in a similar business seems to experience more price stability. I am ok with volatility and tend to hold equities for the long term. Using long-term growth prospects and current valuations as a guideline would you favor one over the other to any great extent? Taxes are not an issue so I could easily switch to DSG if the metrics suggest this is the better stock.

Appreciate your insight.

Q: Dear 5i,
I own CSU (10%), LMN (2.5%) and SHOP (4%) in my TFSA.Is it a good idea for me to increase LMN to 5% and SHOP to 6% to increase weight in the technical sector? Is it better to start a new position(s) such as KXS, DSG, or TOI? This is a small diversified TFSA, and protecting the portfolio with some growth is the main goal.
Thank you.

Q: Looking to add to my TSFA, working on following the Balanced Portfolio, am missing these stocks. which and in what order would you add these?
Thank you, Shane
Read Answer Asked by Shane on January 08, 2024
Q: Hello, I have the following in my TFSA: GIB.A, OTEX, NVEI, KXS, DSG, DOL, NXR.UN, with more or less the same weight. I am under water with NVEI, KXS, NXR.UN. Should I just sell OTEX, DSG and GIB.A and buy XIT instead and wait for NVEI and KXS to break even before selling them and buy XIT? I know XIT has 50% in SHOP and CSU and 5i likes CSU very much. I am less sure about SHOP. What is your opinion of SHOP for a long term hold? I did not fully understand their recent change of strategy. FYI, I have US tech names in a cash account, thatís why I am looking at CDN names in my TFSA. Thanks.
