COMMENT
Bond returns have been terrible. It won't give investors what you hoped for. Need to look elsewhere. A big challenge. Could trade here.
E.T.F.'s
DON'T BUY
It holds a wide variety of bonds with different maturities. In a period of rising interest rates, he does not expect this asset class to perform well. The only place for fixed income will be high yield bonds, albeit with more volatility.
E.T.F.'s
DON'T BUY
Not yet. Investors can re-balance their portfolios. If you aimed for one percentage of equities and another for bonds, you can move money to maintain that balance. That is one of the most prudent things people can do. The bottoms are not in yet.
E.T.F.'s
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Jun 07/19, Up 6%) We have resistance below $110 where we are today. He believes in a long term secular thesis for healthcare. If you can get it when it tanks a bit and then hold it for a long time that is better. You want to hold this sector.
E.T.F.'s
BUY

A universal bond ETF for Canada? If you want an ETF that gives you a cross-section of Canadian bonds, then buy XBB-T. If you want something more global, then Google "global bond ETF" which you can buy and hold long-term.

E.T.F.'s
BUY

HED-T Active managers don't beat bond indexes, net of fees. But he likes XBB which offers the a straight, simple Canadian bond universe and is cheap; it'll perform just as well as an actively managed bond index.

E.T.F.'s
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.
E.T.F.'s
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.

E.T.F.'s
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.

E.T.F.'s
BUY

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.

E.T.F.'s
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.

E.T.F.'s
BUY

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.

E.T.F.'s
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.

E.T.F.'s
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.
