Markets.  It is difficult to predict the Sell in May and Go Away effect.  He would not trade off of it.  The market is paying attention to oil and not earnings.  It is confusing for earnings.  Don’t trade that stuff.  Stick to your portfolio allocation.  He backed out of Europe even though he was only at 2%.  Oil is geopolitical.  There are a number of disruptions around the world.  You really don’t know where the price of oil is going.  Much of the rise is probably temporary.  He would just as soon sit back and wait.

Max exposure to ETFs in a portfolio?  ETFs give you only sector and market risk, not individual stock risk.  He recommends them for smaller portfolios.

Hedged or unhedged.  Buy unhedgd when the CAD$ is high and hedged when it is low.  You could have a bit of both.  He is concerned about deficit spending.  He has reservations about the Canadian dollar.  He thinks it might come down.

2016-06-02 BUY Must be logged in to use chart CBD-T iShares Global Balanced Income ETF

A portfolio in a box.  For a smaller client.  He is not wildly enthusiastic because he does not like all-comprehensive ETFs.  The yield is pretty good.

2016-06-02 DON'T BUY Must be logged in to use chart DGS-T Dividend Growth Split Corp

Split Corps.  When he sees yields of 13-14% and predicated on covered calls and preferreds, he does not see consistent 13-14% yields in the stocks.  He is leery of the yield.
