DON'T BUY

The bond markets are impaired and will be for a while. Low interest rates are here to stay. Income focused ETFs with exposure to bonds will not return 4-5%. Are you getting return of capital or yield? Must look into the structure where the returns are coming from. Both are similar. Both ZMI and XTR give you exposure to diversified income. All fixed income has negative return after inflation.

E.T.F.'s
DON'T BUY
Buyers like its high dividend. But the problem is XTR is a remnant of the old income trusts. Distinguish between return OF capital and a return ON capital (your money) and with XTR there's problem with the latter. He hasn't looked at this for a long time and doesn't care to. Do not fixate on yield. Rather, understand the mechanics of how such yielding stocks or bonds work. Don't accept yields at face value; be suspicious.

Hates this. It was the old income trust ETF. It has issues with the return of capital--you get your money back, but it inflates the yield.

DON'T BUY
He doesn't know this one. It's a matter of finding the lowest MER and comparing ETFs. This holds other iShares ETFs. This probably is good. A lot of this in the high-yield bond market. But hunting for yield isn't always good. XTR's chart hasn't moved much since 2015, actually. He'd rather buy a pure play, namely pure bond or pure dividend and buy each of those vehicles separately.

COMMENT
It yields around 5.5% and offers good diversification: Canadian and US stocks, preferreds and high-yield corporates. However, these are interest-rate sensitive, so if rates stay low or lower, then you'll see price appreciation in these investments. However, prefs and corporates act more like stocks than bonds, and have been underperforming the market lately. He likes the diversity of XTR.

HOLD
20% is a return of capital? You want to know what kind of dividends its holdings pay and what their risk profile is. He thinks you will be comfortable with this position.

COMMENT

Does iShares collect an MER from all the other ETFs held within XTR? He's asked Blackrock this and, no, they're not double-dipping. Generally speaking, there's no question that MERs of ETFs will continue to decrease because of of competition among ETF compnaies. It's amazing how far they've fallen just in the past few years.

COMMENT

He loves the ETF because it gives you a balanced fund, is diversified, and has 20% US exposure in the high yield market. It yields about 5.5% to 6% so you are getting a payout of capital. You have to think about bond yields and credit risk and how they might increase. Think of it as a Canadian balanced fund. He prefers ZWC-T because it is covered call premium and not payout of capital that gets the yield up to where it is.

E.T.F.'s
BUY

It is an actively managed income product. It is important to consider total returns over a period of time. It is designed to be a yield product. The managers have done well in navigating global market sell offs.

E.T.F.'s
COMMENT

For short term holding? An interesting ETF, because it is quite seasoned and has a significant amount of assets. Historically, its origins were income trusts. This is an ETF of ETF’s, so if you really look at its sub holdings and go into its true underlyings, it has asset classes from all around the world. A good, one-time ticket for putting cash to work where you want yield. Dividend yield of 5.3%.

E.T.F.'s
COMMENT

For revenue and safety of capital? A good holding, diversified and everything. Looking at the bigger picture with retirees facing an income crisis, he would favour a different approach. Rather than trying to source income from North America into domestic, he would favour looking further afield for income opportunities, and assemble a portfolio with a diversified yield. It could be an emerging market debt, a high dividend yielding country ETF. He launched this in 2008 and it has been a highly effective strategy.

E.T.F.'s
COMMENT

You are looking for monthly income if you are buying something like this. If you own this, he would balance this with a couple of other positions, a covered call ETF on Canadian banks such as (ZWB-T) and ones on the Canadian utilities such as (ZWU-T).

E.T.F.'s
WAIT

XTR-T is around 6%, but nothing yields that inside of it so you are getting some of your money back and there is natural erosion of NAV because of that. It is a nice conservative holding for some people. You have to recognize what is in there. There is some market risk later in the year. You want to be patient with cash now.

E.T.F.'s
BUY

A perfectly fine product. This is one of 4 or 5 products that are sort of market leaders in the Canadian ETF dividend market space. He prefers Vanguard FTSE Cdn High Dividend Yield (VDY-T), which is a bit cheaper and more broadly diversified. (See Top Picks.)

E.T.F.'s
BUY

It is a balance income fund. It includes bonds. It is good for a long term holding. It is a nice diversified way to get exposure across the sector, but is concentrated in Canada. Combine it with CYH-T.
