DON'T BUY
Canada is lagging the US in interest increases. He expect the Bank of Canada to raise over the next couple of years at least 4 more times. In that scenario a regular bond ETF wont perform well. The only are where they see value in FI is in the High yield space.

WATCH

The broad Canadian bond market.  The interest rate risk on the broader market is at 7 which mean if we see a 100 basis point increase in interest rates, you will lose about 7% in terms of capital.  It is not time to step in yet.  If interest rates went up 25 basis points then it would be time to move in.  Don’t extend duration until interest rates go up a little but.

HOLD

Continue Exposure to XBB-T?  Everyone is disappointed in the return on bonds.  The XBB-T is a mid-term bond ETF.  The return is low but that does not mean you should be piling into equities.  You are adding to risk if you don’t have this exposure.  If you sell, then buy some money market.

The entire Canadian bond world.  You should not pay active management fees for fixed income because active managers cannot make a big enough difference to make their fee.

COMMENT

Interest Rates.  Entire Canadian bond market.  There is a scarcity of 10 years bonds and higher in the US market.  For the foreseeable future, the long end of the curve should stay well anchored unless we see inflation pressures, which we shouldn’t.  The trend is still up, even though we had a high in 2012/13.  It is a place to invest and diversify in your portfolio if you are negative on the outlook on stocks.

To buy the Canadian bond market.  Government and corporate.  Also, likes XHY for high yield, although it is non-investment grade corporate.

COMMENT

iShares DEX Universe Bond (XBB-T) or iShares 1-5yr Laddered Corp Bond Fund (CBO-T) for the best long-term hold? These are 2 very different things. The XBB would have lost you money. It is two thirds government and one third corporate. Has about 750 names and would’ve lost about 1.5% last year with a yield of about 3%. The CBO is short in duration with a yield of around 4% and the duration of about 3 with about 45 names in it. It is laddered 1 to 5 years and this is his preference if you must be in bonds.

COMMENT

His opinion depends on the duration. Prefers to keep his duration very short. Just go to any of the index providers and the ETF Facts page will tell you the yield to maturity as well as the duration of the portfolio. The other important thing with bonds is to make sure of what is the stated yield on the bond and look at what is the yield to maturity. If there is a substantial difference, and the yield to maturity is that much less than the bond, either it’s a longer duration or they paid a premium price for some those bonds.

COMMENT

This is the Bond Universe, the key benchmark for fixed income institutionally. He owns this but has been slowly switching part of it to iShares DEX Short-Term Bond (XSB-T) because he is expecting interest rates to be moving up. If the bond market continues to rally like it is, he might pick up the pace.

BUY
If you only want to hold one fixed income investment, this is probably on the short list of one you want to own. Basically it just buys the Cdn bond market. It will give you market (less fees) returns. Great place to build a core position in and then you could look to add around this in the preferred or high yield space.

COMMENT
DEX Universe Bond ETF. It’s around 65% government and 35% corporate. Likes this, but he tends to look at the DEX Short Term Bond ETF (XSB-T) right now because the duration is shorter. It's about 2.7 years as opposed to 4.5 years on the XBB. This is important, because if rates start to go up you don't want to have longer-term bonds.

COMMENT
DEX Universe Bond ETF. With this ETF, you get every bond, which is about 1100 including government, provincials and corporate. Believes its duration is long so if interest rates rise, it would be affected adversely. This fund has done fairly well. He would prefer a corporate bond ETF.

Tracks the Canadian Bond universe. If you are a passive investor and want exposure to the bond market, it is not a bad place to invest, however the risk is that you are going to get the return of the bond index. He thinks you want to get more than the index. Return is dragged down by very short term bonds that don’t have much upside potential.
