COMMENT
XUU vs. XSP as the better play in the US market XSP is the S&P and CAD-hedged, while the XUU is the broad US market, including the small- and mid-caps without the CAD hedge. He prefers to play in USD, because the USD is a flight to safety when world markets struggle. You want to hold USD as a general rule.

COMMENT
XUS-T Vs. XSP-T. They are S&P exposure, hedged and unhedged. It is a currency call. He thinks the Canadian $ will weaken into the next recession as it has in past recessions. $0.70 is within reach. The closer to 78 cents, you want that hedging. He will add back below that to his US exposure and it will be unhedged.

COMMENT

Buy a hedged ETF when Canadian dollar is lower? Currency decisions are an active part of their process, they are active on currency decisions, and then they use passive ETFs. Not hedged on anything right now. Canadian dollar is stuck in a range between 0.75 and 0.77 cents. Doesn’t think Canada will raise interest rates as fast as US, which means the Canadian dollar will come under pressure. If you are buying S&P now, you are buying it for a long-term portfolio with 2-5 years horizon, because in the near term you are probably not going to get much out of it. XSP is currency hedged. XUS is not currency hedged, and it’s his ETF of choice in the US. XSP should be in a portfolio and replace big US stocks. His opinion is to don’t edge it. XUS definitively affordable at 0.10% MER. You have to really watch the underlying costs when putting an ETF in your portfolio.

VSP-T vs XSP-T vs ZSP-T. These all have exposure to the US Large Cap market, yet have different returns thus far this year.  You have to be careful on these – some are currency hedged and others are not.

COMMENT

In his 41 years experience, he’s never come across anyone who is any good at picking currencies consistently. Buying something hedged will sometimes work for you, but sometimes won’t, and you don’t really know ahead of time. You pay for the hedge as it is built into the cost of running that portfolio. He doesn’t believe in hedging.

BUY

$40,000 in a TFSA to invest in US and international equities giving protection of the principal amount? When looking at US and International ETF’s, he is not a huge fan of emerging markets. If he were doing it, he would look at VEE-T emerging-market, ZWE on Europe and the XSP on the S&P 500.

COMMENT

iShares S&P 500 (CAD-Hedged) (XSP-T) or iShares Russell 2000 (CAD-Hedged) (XSU-T)? He frequently talks about factor investing, and one of the factors that is very real and very tangible is the small caps outperforming large caps over time. As a result, he expects XSU will give slightly higher returns, although it is a bit more volatile.

Hedged S&P ETF.  Whichever ETF provider you choose, hedging is very important.  If you are a long term investor and want US large cap investor you want to do it with the hedge right now.  XSU-T would be recommended if it was a bull market.  To play defense he likes ZWA-T with a yield close to 5% now.

WAIT

VSP-T vs. XSP-T.  Both are fine holdings.  The BMO version contains individual holdings while these two put wrappers around the US versions.  There are tax considerations in holding US investments if you hold more than $100,000.  He has increased US dollar exposure recently to play the currency short term.

TOP PICK

(A Top Pick Feb 17/15. Down 8.29%.) This is based on the S&P 500 and is a core holding, but is Cdn$ hedged. An important thing right now because if you are buying in US$, what happens when you eventually get a recovery in the Cdn$? You are going to lose.

ETF’s or stocks for $5000 a year TFSA account on a 10-12 your hold? He thinks a broad-based ETF would make a lot of sense. One of the indexes that he likes is the S&P 500, which is much better diversified than the Canadian one.

COMMENT

An all season ETF for a dividend investor? He likes this one which gives you a much better diversification than you can get in the Canadian market. Their currency on this has been hedged away, so you are not going to worry about it going up and down, especially over a long time frame. If you want to be a bit more aggressive, there is the Purpose Core Dividend Fund (PDF-T).
