He loves infotech. XIT has a great chart, but consolidation is coming. (Later this year, the economy will chug along with some money flows into materials and maybe energy.) As long as XIT's uptrend remains intact it's fine, but if there's a breakdown, sell and buy elsewhere. Look for weakness in coming weeks to enter. Overall, he's bullish about infotech.

A stock or ETF in the Canadian digital space? 16 stocks are in this with 85% made up for four stocks like Shopify and OTEX. It's less risky than buying, say Shopify on its own.

Shopify, CGI and Open Text are the biggest holdings. This is a great play on Canadian tech. He's owned the component stocks, but he prefers holding tech stocks internationally, so he recommends SOXX-Q.

It's up because of the 5G revolution. He uses IGM, a broader based US tech ETF, and he's thinking of taking profits in it. He's a cautious investor these days due to tariff war uncertainty. If you buy anything, it should have a dividend, so you still get paid if things take a turn.

Morningstar rates it only one star. He likes tech. Don't trust the Morningstar ratings blindly. It's a higher-beta ETF.

(A Top Pick May 22/18, Up 31%) A way to get away from the classic TSX and focus more on the tech stocks. A lot of growth in the sector.

As he came into 2019, he went into some ETFs and looked at XIT. He passed; it's too narrow. He bought IGV, BOTZ and others in tech, because he expects those stocks in these ETFs to trend this year.

A Canadian tech ETF, including Shopify, Constellation Software, OpenText, CGI and BlackBerry. If you want to play Canadian tech, go for it. This is capped, so not a single stock takes up more than 25%. This is nicely diversified and avoids currency issues (it excludes American tech stocks).

Would you recommend any tech ETF? Just bought it. In the US you can go with the QQQ. ZQQ is the Canadian version hedged to CAD. He likes the sector even as he doesn't use nor he likes Facebook (F-N). Markets are driven by changes in technology.

XIT-T vs. XLK-N. XIT-T is a market cap ETF. XLK-N is very diversified. XIT-T will be much more volatile. He would choose XLK-N because of diversification. The top has been in place for a while so he would be worried about them both. He would stay away, but choose XLK-N if his arm was twisted.

How does it compares to the Power Share QQQQ ETF (QQQ-Q)? Lots less Canadian technology compared to the US. Very concentrated in 4-5 names.

Canadian high tech companies. The top 4 are 75% of the portfolio. That is a risk. You could just buy the top 4 names individually. We had a massive run in these stocks. There is a fear of missing out. The momentum has cracked a bit in the last few days. Be conscious of the risk when you buy these ETFs.

(Past Top Pick on August 8, 2017, Up 25%) He's holding and adding to it. Includes big companies such as Shopify, and he expects the Canadian tech sector to perform well. There's more risk in this sector, but an investor is safe if it takes up 5% of a portfolio. And he's not excited about Canadian stocks in general now.

A past top pick that he's sticking with. It holds no Canadian pipelines, he jokes. Canada has some good tech companies like Shopify, CGI, Constellation, Blackberry and Open Text. This ETF gets away from the typical Canadian stocks (banks), so this offers diversification.
