XGD vs. HUG and the impact of the November election XGD is the granddaddy of gold ETF wth top holdings being Newmont, Barrick and FNV, totalling 40%. Given this weighting, he prefers HEP. HUG holds the actual gold. He doesn't know how the US election will effect gold stocks, which is why people buy gold--a reaction to uncertainty.

HEP-T vs. XGD-T. HEP-T has a covered call overly to the gold stocks and generates extra yield. If you are bullish then you don’t want that covered call. If you are a yield seeker then it is a fine way to get exposure to gold.

He has not owned gold for a long time. It is a trade that has been working out. Gold allocation on the TSX is now at 10%. It is a flight to safety. Spending will eventually fuel inflation. He did not want to take the risk of an individual stock.

If you want to play gold it is the best way to do it. With the amount of QE around the world there will be inflation. This is better than buying a company as there are no company specific issues.

He does not like this ETF. He would prefer to own the shares, not just holding derivatives. This can cause discounts to NAV at times. He would prefer to hold solid producers like FNV or ABX. If you want an ETF, he would pick HGGG.

He would play gold in Canadian dollars. Why take the risk? He would get it now if you don’t have it. Interest rates are going to move higher and the US$ is going to move lower.

(A Top Pick Jun 07/19, Up 21%) We saw the period of seasonal strength. If it breaks below $14.50 we may be in trouble. If you want to make money, buy the producers. They lead the way.

With gold at $1200 and $1250 he was excited about it but now gold had broken out, and there is another band of resistance. We need significant inflation or disinflation or some flight to safety for this one to go up.

You can buy gold the commodity or gold stocks which includes the underlying commodity and the business cycle within that company. In a bull run, the stocks perform better. Buy the least-quality balance sheet company, because that stock will respond the most in the change in gold price.
