Tremendous company with lots of growth potential for years to come. He doesn't think it will be impacted by restaurant bankruptcies. Expensive, though high quality, at 15x sales.

Any smaller tech company could always be integrated into a larger company. As long as they continue to grow and meet and beat estimates, the stock should do fine. Many of their customers were shut down for a few months earlier this year. It has a lot of heavy lifting to do, but a lot of this is priced in.

Has done very well, considering their business is retail business payments. Recent earnings beat the street. They just did a listing in the U.S. which will likely raise valuations, but that valuation is as bad as, say, Shopify. It's not without its risks. The sector has very high valuations.

Doesn't meet his criteria in its ROE history. The US listing may offer a short-term boost, but what really matters is whether they grew customers and revenues. It's too unpredictable for him, but they are doing the right things. He has a small holding that he's happy with.

Billy Kawasaki’s Insights - Picks from 5i Research. The company has client size and vertical focus advantage compared to others in the field.

Billy Kawasaki’s Insights - Picks from 5i Research. The company started trading in the US today. There may be some volatility as it is a small company by US standards, but investors in the states might be willing to pay more for the valuation potential. Some investors might buy it just in case it is the next Shopify. Unlock Premium - Try 5i Free

Before the pandemic, this was gaining traction, but COVID scared investors over restaurants closing. So, LSPD sold off, but now restaurants are coming back online with many boasting busy take-out and patio business. Those that survive must be effecient, and LSPD can help that. LSPD should pick up business in the future. (Analysts’ price target is $46.13)

This company has really peaked his interest and he took a position recently. He thinks they will achieve profitability soon. You can build a position on weakness. He took a half position, while he continues to learn about the company. Their customers are in the industries that have been hit the hardest. He is impressed by management.

It is growing quite quickly right now. It does not really have any profit, so the challenge is on valuation. You are bidding on the growth, or ultimately an acquisition. One of the challenges of buying high priced stocks after a run is whether you will be the one left holding the bag at the end of the day. He thinks it is being pushed up because people want to buy Canadian.

It's not his type of stock, because it trades at a huge multiple and doesn't generate revenues yet. But he traded it in the spring and made a quick profit--he couldn't resist. It fell so far and rose so fast. They have a good POS system, but depend on restaurants and bars which of course are a challenged sector. He expects a slowdown for LSPD in coming quarters, so watch their future guidance. The valuation is too high.

It is a growth-at-any-price stock. It scores pretty poorly on valuation. It missed on the last quarter. It is volatile. It has a good trend, however.

A great success story out of Montreal. The rebound was so rapid in March, that they missed the chance to buy. Their involvement in cloud based POS resulted in analysts slashing earnings estimates and there is still an element of risk. In a few months he hope those concerns will appear to be a bump in the road. He thinks there is still a lot of growth and they may be some acquisition opportunities for them as well. A hold for now.

Buy more on weakness? There were a couple of chances to buy on pullbacks. The worst case scenario is that their customers were not able to return to business. If you were brave to buy back in mid-March you were rewarded. They just reported earnings and they beat expectations. Retailers were still staying with them. He continues to hold it. Coming out of the pandemic, clients will need efficient technology like this to survive. Beware of the volatility.
