Portfolios. Now is probably not a bad time, at midyear, to actually start looking back to your plan in terms of what your asset mix ought to be, and rebalancing. He has been taking some money out of equity, and putting it into cash for the time being. He’ll then be deploying it into income for the remainder of the quarter. Now is the time to take some profits and sell some winners, putting that money into things that have done a little less well.

What’s the best way to play a rising rate environment in both the short and long-term? This is a bit of a misnomer. We are not in a rising rate environment. We are, and have been in a flat rate environment for the past 3 years, and expect it will persist for at least 1 more year. Because of this, you are going to be getting low single-digit on any kind of single debt instrument, no matter what you do. He is using a lot of equity linked GICs, which are structured products, and are tied to the stock market, but guaranteed not to lose money.

An ETF that can be contributed to on a monthly basis? There are 4-6 Claymore products that offer this as well as Purpose products. You can get this in the iShare’s or Purpose’s websites.

Using a tax shelter to reduce income down to a point where you are paying tax in a lower bracket. He still suggests this, but the only kind of a tax shelter he uses are called “oil and gas flow throughs”. There are companies in the extraction business that have provisions that were put in the income tax act 40 years ago. They allow companies that were involved in extraction, to flow through the deductions that they would normally be entitled to as corporations, to the underlying unit holders.

Are index ETF’s a good buy now, or should I wait until the market pulls back? The US S&P is fine, and hitting new all-time highs, but he would suggest that you not just look at North America. Something that invests globally would be a better way to do it. He would suggest (VT-N) or (XWD-T). Don’t wait for a pullback.

2014-07-07 TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart CIF-T iShares Global Infrastructure E.T.F.

Infrastructure is crumbling, and we need more. This is a global product, so you are not betting the farm just on Canada or North America.

2014-07-07 TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart COW-T iShares Global Agriculture ETF

Has been one of his favourite products for some time. There are 7.2 billion people globally, and farmland is always being eaten up by urbanization, so the need to be productive with agricultural products is going to be going on for the foreseeable future and for the rest of our lives. Should be pretty safe in getting some steady growth.

2014-07-07 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart IXN-N iShares Global Tech

This is good news - bad news. The caveat is, do you really need it in US$’s? If you do, then that is fine. He likes that it is global, but he doesn’t like individual sectors, and doesn’t believe in investing in a sector basis. If you are bullish on technology, then this is fine.

2014-07-07 BUY Must be logged in to use chart PDF-T Purpose Core Dividend Fund

Likes dividend ETF’s that are broadly diversified, and that will pay you income as a proxy for bonds, GICs or bond ETF’s. Doesn’t prefer them for the equity portion, but would rather have a pure equity play if you want it for that.

Emerging markets is probably the most criminally under owned asset class in the world. It is growing faster than anything else.

2014-07-07 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart VT-N Vangrd Total World E.T.F.

Great plan if you eventually want US$’s. The great thing about global stock ETF’s is that they are true meritocracies in terms of cap weighting around the world.

2014-07-07 PAST TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart XGI-T iShares S&P Global Industries Index Fund

(A Top Pick July 4/13. Of 26.14%.) Likes things that are inflation plays, but this is one that doesn’t necessarily have to have inflation to do well. A good diversity for 4 things that you traditionally have in your portfolio. Very heavily weighted towards North America. Still likes.

2014-07-07 PAST TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart XMA-T iUnits S&P/TSX Materials ETF

2014-07-07 PAST TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart XRE-T iShares S&P/TSX Capped REIT

(A Top Pick July 4/13. Up 8.6%.) Interest rate sensitive ETF’s really got hit last May. Most of his clients don’t have this any more as they have been pulling out of real estate. Feels real estate, of all manners, is starting to get frothy now.

Not big on dividends necessarily, but huge on global diversification. This gives you large and small caps, many of which are paying dividends, but that is not the driver of that bus.
