US Markets. Has been bullish on the US market for 4-5 years. Although he is still very strong on the US market, he decided to take about 15% off the table and wait. Historically, September is the worst month and October is not much better, and often there is a rise in late October. This has something to do with his decision to reduce his holdings. However the main driver was because of very, very large gains and rebalancing his portfolios. Has very little exposure to emerging markets. He is US #1, Canada #2 and a small amount in Europe.

Selling Puts on banks. How many months would you go out? When selling Naked Puts, the risk/reward is the same as buying the stock and selling the options. When he does covered calls, he prefers going out 6 months as he gets a better premium. If you are willing to do more active trading on a 1-2 month contract, you’re going to do a little bit better provided you are on the right side. The only issue he has with naked put writing is that most people that do it are leveraging. They are not just doing the cash substitution, they are probably leveraging it 2 or 3 times, and if they are wrong they can get hit pretty good.

Naked puts. A Put gives you the right to sell something. If you buy a Put for $50, and the stock goes down to $45, and you have paid $2 for that Put, that Put is now intrinsically worth $5, because of the difference between $45 and $50. People use this as a way of acquiring a stock at a lower price. A good strategy.

If I believe interest rates will stay low for the long haul, what is an option strategy I could use as an insurance policy in case rates spike up? A very interesting question. There are options on government bonds that trade on Montreal except there is no volume and no open interest except on short-term months. There is nothing directly that you can do.

What ETF would you recommend for buying Puts on a Utility index? There is nothing for this.

Markets. To him, Canada has done as well as, if not better, than any other developed market globally. However, going forward he feels you are still a little better off getting money out of Canada. He began rebalancing portfolios at the beginning of the quarter, early July, and the rebalancing will be done at the end of the quarter.

Broad-based ETF’s such as VDU-T, VCN-T and VUN-T. Strategy of holding these versus ETF’s based on indexes tracking smaller baskets? He likes the more broadly based ETF’s as you are diversifying away from risk and getting more small companies. Diversification lowers risk and adding small-cap names historically increases returns.

An emerging market ETF that excludes Russia? There are many emerging market ETF’s, but they all have exposure to Russia. There are a lot that have minimal exposure.

Minimizing taxes when creating a will? To do this, you have to do lots of gifting while you are alive. Whatever you have in your estate will be part of your terminal tax return. If you have a spouse, you can name them as your beneficiary of your RRSP or RIFF, which will create a spousal rollover with no taxes. For regular ordinary investments in a taxable account, try not to have them in a taxable account when you die, just give it away before that happens. Legally you are allowed to give about $10,000 per person, per family member, per year. However, if you are giving away a marketable security, there may be a taxable capital gain/capital loss. If you give securities to charity without selling them, they will give you the receipt for the value on the day they receive it.

For a senior, do you prefer Index ETF’s weighted by countries/economies or by industry-specific ETF’s? He always prefers to diversify by geography than by sector. Geography products are cheaper and their benchmarks are easier to follow. As a result, you can build a more diversified portfolio.

ETF’s versus stock picking? Stock picking is lower cost because ETF’s might cost 35-40 basis points on average for a basket of stocks where individual stocks cost nothing. However, you might need 35 or 40 stocks and still not have the diversification as an ETF. Also, there is the cost of transactions for buying and selling stocks. There is also more risk with individual stocks.

TOP PICK COW-T iShares Global Agriculture ETF Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2014-09-02 $30.130

This is global, so there is very little exposure to Canada. We are in a situation right now where farmland is being eaten up by urbanization. Global population is at 2.2 billion. (Our viewer Jonathan has come to our rescue again. This should be 7.2 billion.) Climate change is probably doing more to destroy farmland than it is to create new farmland. Because of all this, prices have to go up. Considers this tangible product as an inflation hedge.

BUY DBA-N PowerShare DB Agriculture E.T.F. Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2014-09-02 $26.660

Appropriate to hold in an RRSP? He generally likes agricultural ETF’s, and this would be appropriate for an RRSP with the caveat that it should be in some reasonable portion such as 10% or 15%. (See Top Picks.)

BUY ETP-T FT Global Risk Managed Income Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2014-09-02 $20.160

This is a new product and is an ETF of ETFs. A multi-strategy, so it will have some real estate investment trusts, corporate bonds, loans, etc. With one ticket, you are getting 11 or 12 different income ETF’s with a multi-strategy, multi-management approach. The problem is, it costs a bit more. It will be about 85 basis points. The good news is you’re getting some income, but you won’t be whipsawed by a rate hike. A really conservative way of getting a regular income in a portfolio.

PAST TOP PICK FSL-T First Trust Senior Loan ETF Market Call Tonight (BNN TV) 2014-09-02 $20.250

(A Top Pick Sept 9/13. Up 4.83%.) This is a medium-high risk sort of product. It would do better than many other products if there was going to be a rate hike.
