The 10-year yield His technical analysis: the 10-year yield has moved down since its 1.77% high earlier this year then fell down to 1.2% in mid-July, but when it rallied to 1.38% the yield hit a ceiling and closed today at 1.28% which disappointed those who expected it to rise higher. The popular belief of it hitting 2% by year's end won't happen. Given the yield, tech looks good. The XLK chart shows an uptrend since Dec. 2019. Likes this sector. Buy it.

Allan Tong’s Discover Picks To compare, the S&P outperforms XLK by 3%. However, if we consider the past month, the roles are reversed, with the S&P up 3.3%, but the XLK popping over 7%. XLK pays a 1.02% dividend, which isn’t bad for tech, and it charges a low 0.13% MER. XLK trades at a 32.6x PE, which falls exactly between Apple’s 29.2x and Microsoft’s 35.2x. If you want one-stop U.S. tech shopping that includes the best tech stocks to buy, XLK is the place to go. Read 3 Best Tech Stocks to Buy Now for our full analysis.

COMMENT
One of the broader ETFs out there, holding larger cap tech vendors. You get on the train and expect a great deal of volatility. Instead, take a look at some of the true tech hedge funds out there, which have a moral of capital preservation. Smooths out the downside of black swan events. Sees ETFs as trading, not investment, vehicles.

QQQ vs XLK? XLK has a large position in MSFT and AAPL, whereas the QQQ is more diversified. To broaden the exposure he might add KWEB that adds exposure into the Asian marketplace, including BABA. He thinks these holdings will continue to crush things.

In late-2018, FB kicked off the selling in FANGs. He was happy about that--he picked up cheap stocks. XLK has done very well for him and he's long held it.

An ETF with Microsoft as a major holding? This is the obvious choice. But he cautions over the American market in general in the next few years. Also, the American public has been looking at tech companies with suspicion. Instead of tech, he'd look at banks.

COMMENT
The granddaddy of them all. It's market-cap weighted, so the top 10 holdings amount to around 40-50% of this ETF. Overall, tech is not a bad sector; there is good growth and strong balance sheets. To avoid market-cap weighting, consider RYT: the equal-weight tech index which gives you far broader diversification with the top 10 holding amounting to only 16% of this ETF.

COMMENT

A tech ETF to anchor a portfolio? It's a little late to get into tech; tech has had its run. You're late to the party. KLX could anchor, dominated by Apple and Microsoft, but why not buy Apple instead?

DON'T BUY
It tracks the tech sector in the US. We are late stages and the US market is the most expensive in the world. He would prefer something different – see Top Picks.

COMMENT
A tech ETF recommendation? He likes XLK-N, which has all the big players and of course QQQ-Q and the ZQQ-T. It depends on whether you want a particular skew in Apple, Facebook, etc. The QQQ-Q provides the best diversification he thinks.
E.T.F.'s
DON'T BUY
XIT-T vs. XLK-T. XIT-T is a market cap ETF. XLK-T is very diversified. XIT-T will be much more volatile. He would choose XLK-T because of diversification. The top has been in place for a while so he would be worried about them both. He would stay away, but choose XLK-T if his arm was twisted.

COMMENT

Sell XLK to buy XLC? Don’t. Rather than reduce XLK, you may want to rebalance it down. Just buy Google and Facebook, because they’re the dominant ones. Do you really want Verizon in there? ETFs are a great vehicle, but if you take the time to look at the holdings with weightings, why pay someone else to buy something you can buy yourself.

E.T.F.'s
DON'T BUY

Technology this year has outperformed everything. He thinks that Technology is facing headwinds going forward in the way of more regulation as they are seen as monopolistic giants abusing their power. He thinks this ETF is going to do OK but there is more value in other sectors. The GICS classification is changing a little and telecommunications is moving to the communications sector, so this ETF will be affected. High liquid, low cost highly efficient way to get exposure to the sector.

E.T.F.'s
BUY

Technology is a growth sector, which mitigates the seasonal fluctuations. Above average growth this year. Seasonal strength between October and end of year. Tech will benefit from cyclicality and push higher to end of the year.

PAST TOP PICK

(A Top Pick March 30/17, Up 29%) You must be in the U.S. and in tech. She'll stay with it. Likes companies that offer dividend growth.
