Markets. He is not an advocate of “Sell in May and go away” or of using Stop Losses for his clients. To him, there is very little evidence that people can do it reliably and consistently. You have to time both getting out and getting back in. The things you can control are your costs, asset allocation and your turn over, and these of the types of things that he tries to focus on as a portfolio manager. He can’t control whether the market is going to go up or down this month, this quarter or this year. Doesn’t try to predict what is going to happen, but rather manages and reacts to what has already happened.

Percentage on fixed income? His asset allocation, all else being equal, is an old rule of thumb with a New World wrinkle. People usually say that your age is the percentage of your fixed income. He would say that your age times the decimal of your age is a good target for your fixed income, until about age 70 where it tops out at 50-50. For example, if you are 50 years of age, 50X.50 = 25%, so 25% of your income. 60 years of age is 60X.6 = 36% of your income. By the time you are 71 years of age, when you have to convert your RRSP to a RIF, that is when you get to 50-50. The reason for this is that we are all living much longer.

30% cash in RRSP and TFSA for a 43-year-old. Too high? Too high. This money should be working. Use a formula of 43X .43= 20% in total income. If you have no other income, then the most you should have would be 20% in cash. You can be more aggressive and he wouldn’t hesitate to do so.

Analysts’ price targets of a year or more? Doesn’t believe anybody can reliably project what is going to happen, and he would be very leery of anyone who purports to have that kind of insight into markets.

ETF Voting Rights? Every company is going to be different, but many companies have the management that try to match their voting to the mandate of the ETF. There are also some that will even use an independent consultant giving them a third-party counsel.

Sector rotation in TFSA’s? A high risk-high reward strategy. If you are going to swing for the fences, it probably makes a little more sense to do it in a TFSA. What you have to weigh is your tolerance for risks in the strategy you are pursuing. Depending on how the winds are blowing, you can do very well if you are right, but you could lose probably more if you are wrong. (Remember you do not get to claim a tax loss in a TFSA.)

2016-05-02 PAST TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart COW-T iShares Global Agriculture ETF

(A Top Pick May 27/15. Down 8.28%.) The idea is that agriculture should be one of those things that is fairly insensitive to movement, simply because everybody has to eat. He got most of his clients out of this 3-4 months ago.

2016-05-02 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart FIE-T iShares Cdn Financial Monthly Income ETF

A product that pays money from a number of different ways. Canadian financials, REITs, Corporate bonds. A mixed bag of different things that are paying money. Yield is about 3.9%, but when you gross that up with some of the Return of Capital, it might be more like 7%-7.2%, etc. This is for people that want a strong income, but it is grinding down the Adjusted Cost Basis, because some of that money you are getting is Return of Capital.

2016-05-02 TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart VDY-T Vanguard FTSE Cdn High Div Yd.

For people who are trying to find ways to get income and trying to get some diversification, instead of buying individual companies or individual sectors, why not just buy all the things that are paying dividends, get it cheaply, get broad diversification. He thinks the worst is behind us and that we hit the bottom in Jan-Feb.

2016-05-02 TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart VEE-T Vanguard MSCI Emerg. Mkt. ETF

(A Top Pick May 27/15. Down 17.24%.) Likes this very much, but it has been down a lot. He continues to believe that emerging markets are a ridiculously under owned asset class in Canada. This is probably the market leader in the Canadian market space. It is going to be a more volatile play, but this is a part of the world that is growing at 4%-6% GDP growth in a growing middle class. Very cheap and very diversified. This will be a long-term hold.

2016-05-02 BUY Must be logged in to use chart VXC-T Vanguard FTSE All-World ex Canada

TFSA vs RRSP, and examples of ETF’s that would be more suitable? For the large majority of people, the TFSA money is the money that you can be a little more aggressive with because there is more flexibility because the growth you have will be pulled out tax-free. If you want things that are going to grow, and hopefully will be a little more aggressive as a result of seeking that growth, he would use things like iShares MSCI World Index Fund (XWD-T) or Vanguard FTSE All-World ex Canada (VXC-T), both global broadly diversified equity positions that are trying to get you exposure around the world.

If you want to get into emerging markets, but want to avoid China and still have the growing middle class, India is the way to go.

2016-05-02 PAST TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart XT-N iShares Exponential Technologies ETF

(A Top Pick May 27/15. Down 6.28%.) Had only recommended this for a few people. Because the US$ got to be so low, he traded out of this to get back into Cdn$.

2016-05-02 BUY Must be logged in to use chart XTR-T iShares Diversified Monthly IF ETF

A perfectly fine product. This is one of 4 or 5 products that are sort of market leaders in the Canadian ETF dividend market space. He prefers Vanguard FTSE Cdn High Dividend Yield (VDY-T), which is a bit cheaper and more broadly diversified. (See Top Picks.)
