How to increase dividends. These are all the same thing. You get exposure to Canadian large caps. There is no diversification by being in all three. ZWU-T should replace one of them to get utilities including pipelines and telcos and less reliance on the banks. Still Canada so you need international. ZWE-T is the best international dividend payers yielding 7% with a covered call overlay. ZWS-T is the best in the US. These are the two to add to the three. These should be in a registered portfolios if you are retired because there is no divined tax credit.

XDV-T vs. ZWC-T. Most stocks in those two indexes are similar. ZWC-T has a covered call overlay. XDV-T is more sector concentrated. He advocates that if you are in the market late in the investment cycle you want to be in a covered call strategy. It gives you a smoother ride.

$22,000 for an income dividend holding? He would consider just going with a dividend ETF. You get diversification amongst the blue chips. It gives you a dividend of about 4.5%.

Any ETF that focuses exclusively on dividends in that Canadian environment of large caps shouldn’t be classified as high risk. A pretty good place to hide if you have the proper time frame of 2-3 years.

He sees no problem holding this. If you are not overweight in the Canadian banks already, this is fine. This is a monthly dividend.

Hasn’t been buying this because he tends to have a lot of banks anyway and this is heavily into the banks. However, this is fine as everyone else is concerned. A good play. You might want to consider that we have had this good dividend play for quite a while now and maybe the thing to be looking at a little bit more is something that is more growth oriented.

Composed of dividend payers, not just dividend growers. He would have a hard time buying it here. But it should have really good support here and would sell on any pullback.

It’s okay. Ishares products tend to be market leaders, but VDY-T is a bit cheaper and more broadly diversified, and he prefers it.

Likes it. Doesn`t use it because of a lot of bank stocks. He already has a lot of banks. Great product.

Likes this one. The only reason he doesn’t have more of it is that it has a lot of banks and he does a lot of Covered Calls on banks and doesn’t want to overweight his portfolio.

This tends to have a higher dividend yield than the other products out there. Doesn't think dividends are the best things in the world. You have to remember that risk and reward are related and those stocks that pay dividends are seen as less risky. If you want a higher return, you can buy stocks that are not paying dividends. Can’t see that this one will do more than 4% over the next 5-20 years.

This is a great ETF to hold. If you are bullish on US equities, SES, it gives you hedged exposure to the Dow Jones 30 index, which is a rock solid index to be in. (He holds a similar ETF with another company.)

Cdn Dividend ETF. Likes this one but frankly will often use Claymore’s instead because if he is writing covered calls on banks, this one is more bank weighted which would make him overweight on the banks. Nothing wrong with this one.

Includes broader range of financials than XFN. Would suggest balancing off the financials with another ETF.
