S&P/TSX Capped REIT. Long-term hold writing covered calls or a short-term trade? He doesn't look at it as short-term. Also not sure you can do covered calls on it. Yield is about 5%. About 25% RioCan (REI.UN-T) whereas the Equal Weight REITs Index (ZRE-T) is equal weighted.

S&P/TSX Capped REIT. REIT space should continue to do well. It has the characteristics of being defensive and the yield is at about 4.8%. Also offensive because of the commercial space it is in. If the economy picks up, occupancy rates will continue to rise.

(A Top Pick Sept 3/10. Up 17.25%.) S&P/TSX REIT ETF. With the US plazas coming into Canada, this will look very good on Canadian real estate.

S&P/TSX Capped REIT. Likes this product. There are comments that the real estate market is going to cool off, which could mean REITs will not be doing as well as before. If you want a real estate REIT, this is the one he would recommend. Well diversified with larger cap names and fairly stable.

Likes the REIT sector. If you are a beginning investor, you would want to look at something broader based, but this is ok. Has more of Riocan than the BMO product.

S&P/TSX Capped REIT ETF. As a general rule he is a bit concerned about real estate investment trusts right now. Doesn’t like real estate prospects in Canada going forward. Could be flat for the next little while.

S&P/TSX Capped REIT is the simple REIT ETF that he would choose. Has a lot of liquidity, which is important and has options on it, which is useful.

Equal Weight REITs Index ETF (ZRE-T) versus S&P/TSX Capped REIT? The decision on REITs is to how much you like RioCan (REI.UN-T) because the latter is about 25% of this company while the former is about 7%.

Cdn REIT ETF. One of the problems with this ETF is that RioCan (REI.UN-T) and H&R (HR.UN-T) are now 40% of the weighting. He is continuing to hold this but taking his exposure down from 5% to 3% to Buy the US REITs.

S&P/TSX Capped REIT ETF. Has lagged because it has a full range of REITs and some have really badly under performed. A good way for the small investor to get risk diversification.
