Markets.  He is overweight in the States recently.  He still sees value in the US market.  If Trump is able to do the kind of things he says he will do, like lower corporate rates and so on, he is optimistic.  He is not going into the US hand over fist.  It is advisable to do a covered call strategy.  It has been a pretty flat market in the US.  People are not making a lot of money on the low VIX.  The technical stuff counts but it is not a major issue to him.  His first thought was to go into VGK-N but it is not hedged against currency.  The UK could have issue with their currency also and may have to lower it.  The ZWE-T is what he likes and it pays a good dividend.

Deep in the money options.  They have a lot of intrinsic value as well as time value. Buying deep in the money is squeezing out time value.  If it drops, the option can go to zero.

Total Market ETFs vs. Large Cap-only ETFs?  He prefers fully hedged.  He prefers the S&P and then he moves into specific sectors if appropriate.

Long term suggestion on an ETF that would be relatively safe.  He suggests multiple ETFs and some cash.  He suggests one Canadian and one US index fund for small amounts of money.  There is no commission for regular contributions.  You have to be firm with your bank manager.  1/3rd / 1/3rd / 1/3rd Canadian / US / Cash.

2017-05-11 DON'T BUY Must be logged in to use chart CEW-T iShares Equal Weight Bank & Lifeco ETF

It is a leftover from the Claymore days and has become an orphan.  He would prefer the HEF-T financial ETF with covered calls on the financials.  It has enhanced income.

2017-05-11 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart HCG-T Home Capital Group

It is totally speculative at this stage.  He is not following it except in the news paper.  There is an effort to make sure there is no perception of a potential contagion going through to other sub-prime lenders.

2017-05-11 PAST TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart HFR-T HAP Floating Rate Bond ETF

(Top Pick Jan 19/16, Up 5%) He went into buy it for the return.  It never changes price much.  It yields about 2%.  A complicated structure but he likes putting money there.

2017-05-11 HOLD Must be logged in to use chart HPR-T Horizons Preferred Share ETF

Active preferred share ETF.  ZPR-T is almost entirely resets, but HR-T is 70% resets and 30% perpetuals.  If there is another down stroke in interest rates, this one could retain its value more.  But ZPR-T could retain its value better during rate increases.  Do a little of each.  He is not a big fan.  If you need the income then stay with it.

He really likes this one.  They cut their fees 50% so this is only 25 basis points.  They took 80 mid cap health care stocks.  He quite likes the structure.

It is not just ROBO devices, but also a bunch of medical devices companies.  Institutions are getting into it in a big way.  It is an interesting play, but not for older investors, which he has.

2017-05-11 WEAK BUY Must be logged in to use chart VUS-T Vanguard MSCI U.S. Broad Mkt ETF Cdn Hedge

Canadian $ hedged.  Broad markets.  Smaller accounts should not do the smaller sector ETFs.  There is nothing wrong with this in these situations, however.  He prefers to look at the sectors individually otherwise.  It is not a core holding for him.  He likes Vanguard.
