A good way to play technology. The sector is interesting. They are probably a good portfolio filler, but if you want higher returns, he would look elsewhere.

If you’ve owned this for a long period of time, you’ve done really, really well. If you look at the composition #1 is Apple, which has had a great run this year. The market is expecting high growth this year from these stocks. Given the lofty valuations on these stocks, he chose to cut his holdings in half. He wouldn’t add any fresh positions.

A high technology ETF that is complementary to this? There are many, many different kinds of high technology ETF’s, but some are quite niche. PowerShares has a lot of that sort of niche stuff, which you might want to take a look at.

20-30 years Tech ETF for a TFSA for a 25-year-old? You could certainly be looking at this, because it has the big ones. This will change over time. You could also include some Canadian ones as well, such as iShares S&P/TSX Information Technology Capped (XIT-T).

All the big high techs that have been driving the market are part of this. It has been getting a bit of a beating of late, but this is just a regular pullback. He would see no reason for selling this.

A technology ETF. The companies will be repatriating cash into the US and they will spend that money, making the businesses more efficient. It is weighted by market cap.

He likes the technology sector. The top holdings in this includes Apple, Microsoft and Facebook. This one is an older ETF in the technology space and does include some communication names such as AT&T and Verizon. You may want to look at others that strip out those communication names.

This is a good choice based on seasonality, technology and holdings like Apple, Microsoft, Facebook and Visa. There have been some really high profile misses on some of these large companies, so that gives you a buying opportunity. The rest of the ETF is spread around quite nicely. The kind of thing you want to own for a very long time.

Even though the ETF has been beaten up, there is no reason to sell this. He wouldn’t be overweight, possibly 2%-3%, because it is a sector.

(A Top Pick Oct 20/15. Down 1.68%.) This sector has outperformed the market since October. It is in its seasonal period where technology tends to do well from October into the beginning of January. Chart shows that this is still above its support line and this is in a trading range. Technology can still do okay.

It is a fine ETF. He prefers the IYW-N because it does not include telecoms in the basket.

Technology tends to do well at this time of the year. There have been some good earnings. Right now there are opportunities for it to continue to do well. In November, on average, it produces a 2.6% rate of return, and has been positive 68% of the time.

Not a bad Tech sector ETF except that there is about 10% of communication names in it, so it is not a pure play technology.
