XIU has a slightly higher MER. HXT does not distribute the income but is capitalized into the portfolio holdings. It makes it a capital gain than dividend income. The redemption cost is also a factor. Would prefer HXT all things considered.

An ETF to buy? There are so many ETFs, so it depends what you're looking for. XIU offers growth and income for retirees. This is a core holding for any investors. There's also a BMO utilities ETF offering a yield and upside. Also, a Canadian bank ETF from any vendor will give you income and growth, like ZWB-T. An ETF reduces volatility vs. owning individual stocks.

As easy as it gets for passive investment. Broad-based exposure to the Canadian market. Financials, tiny bit of energy, lifecos, pipelines. If you expect returns over time of 6-7%, it's a good holding. Income stream is pretty solid. Markets are a bit overbought right now, so don't go full bolt right now. Instead, dollar cost average in.

HXT-T vs. XIU-T. They have basically identical holding but one pays a dividend so has different tax treatment. He is indifferent. In a TFSA, there is no reason to not to use the XIU-T.

What is more tax efficient than the HXT-T for a taxable account? This is good for tax efficiency and cheap, charging around 4 basis points and nearly replicates the HXT-T.

How to increase dividends. These are all the same thing. You get exposure to Canadian large caps. There is no diversification by being in all three. ZWU-T should replace one of them to get utilities including pipelines and telcos and less reliance on the banks. Still Canada so you need international. ZWE-T is the best international dividend payers yielding 7% with a covered call overlay. ZWS-T is the best in the US. These are the two to add to the three. These should be in a registered portfolios if you are retired because there is no divined tax credit.

How far out would you write a covered call on this? That's a tough one. He wouldn't write a covered call on this. So, if you believe the US economy will grow above-average in coming years, then Canada will benefit. Sit tight and use it as a core holding. Wait till there's a trade deal--and it will happen. It's all bluster now.

When to buy a covered call? Low-cost with exposure to good names like the big banks. But he doesn't see the Canadian economy--or the market--growing much. He'd rather buy individual stocks and not an ETF. But if the market comes off, an ETF is a great way to gain broad exposure. Covered calls are best layered over a utility or bank--doesn't think XIU offers this.

(A Top Pick Nov 23/17, Up 5%) The largest Canadian ETF and perhaps the oldest in the world. He likes it for its institutional liquidity. It's a little different from XIC and others, because this holds only 60 stocks, which means large caps (heavy on the banks). For a longterm buy and hold, though, look for another ETF (XIC or ZCN), though this one charges only 17 basis points.

$2,000 for his son to invest in? He'd buy a really simple ETF, the XIU, which is basically buying Canada's 60-largest companies. You're buying Canada, including 30% in energy and metals, which is a risk. Or you could try SPY to cover the U.S. market. You could split these two 50/50.

Good time to buy? You can’t time the markets. This particular product is 60 of the biggest TSX companies, and a cross-section of the industries. Should be a core holding and just hold on to it.

HEW-T vx. XIU-T: Their performances are the safe, but HEW cost 61 basis points vs. XIU's 12. Get XIU...or XST.

A core holding in a young person’s portfolio? One of the grandaddy ETFs. Big cap stocks in Canada. Pretty good dividend, extremely liquid. Of his Canadian portfolio allocation, his primary holding is XIU. More convenient to buy one stock than it is to turn around to the market and buy the top 15-20 stocks. Cheap, effective, you might as well use it. 0.18% MER.

He's a stock-picker and prefers selecting stocks within the 60 Canadian stocks in this ETF. But this is a sensible, middle-of-the-road approach to investing in Canada. You won't lose over time.
