ETFs for RRSPs and TFSAs.

He and his team are not tax experts, and the answer is very individual-specific. Consult your tax advisor.

XSP or ZSP are good starting points. One is hedged, one is not. HXS is another option, though it doesn't pay distributions, just accumulates as capital.

BUY

Great product for investors.
Will perform well over the long term.
Very tough benchmark to consistently beat.
Best product for most investors. 

E.T.F.'s
BUY
XSP vs. ZUE Almost identical. Track the same index, structure is the same by holding the 500 stocks in the S&P 500 and applying the currency hedge so movements in the CAD don't impact the NAV as much. Long term, did a good job insulating from currency moves. XSP is 10 bps, ZUE is 9. Long term, US large caps should be the core of a lot of portfolios. Risky, as it was this year, but you should still have it.
E.T.F.'s
WEAK BUY
XSP vs. ZQQ He's underweight tech and communications and high-growth stocks. If you look at the NASDAQ 100, it's down 31% from last November highs. Still kind of expensive at 3.7x price to sales, a bit of a premium to 10-year average of 3.5x. Just because it's come down in price, doesn't necessarily make it cheap. He'd prefer the XSP, as it's more diversified, though it still has 34-35% in tech and communications. He's been noticing the equal weight index outperforming, but tech and communications are still not improving.

BUY
Allan Tong’s Discover Picks The XSP pays a 1.12% dividend and also charges a super-low 0.10% MER. Tech is the biggest sector at 26.74% followed by health care at 14.83%. Overall, not bad, but the VSP slightly outperforms this and charges a tick less. Also, XSP is not hedged either. XSP is one to use as a comparable during research only.

WAIT
Excellent ETF, but a bad time to get into it, unless you have a 20-year-year horizon. Instead, wait till 2023 to consider it. He sees storm clouds in the market coming. He is bearish the S&P short-term.

COMMENT
XSP Has a 0.1% MER. Consider HXS for a little more tax efficiency and you can get it in U.S. dollars as well. You are getting classic exposure with the BMO S&P 500.

PARTIAL BUY
Tracks the S&P and is hedged. She doesn't buy ETFs. But an ETF makes sense for some investors who lack the time and expertise. The wider risk is if the market keeps declining and enters a recession. She suggests buying a portion at a time and watching the market.

BUY
An ETF for a TFSA It tracks the S&P 500, hedged against a decline in the US dollar. It's a core position for him. Solid. Also, ZWB, a covered call on Canadian banks, yielding 5.5%, a surrogate for the Canadian economy.

COMMENT
Caller was asking whether EQL could protect against downside in XSP. It depends what is drawing down the market. For example, if it is the Nasdaq and FAANGs, then EQL will protect you since it is underweight these big names. However, if the market is down, it will not help you.
E.T.F.'s
STRONG BUY
Hold it forever. He owns A LOT of this. Watch the currency exchange, because it's hedged. He owns hedged and unhedged. XSP protects against the decline in the USD, so that's why he loves this. Great performance.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
TFSA investment? XSP is based on the S&P500. He always has held this as a core holding in his portfolio.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
Looking for a dividend-growth ETF in a TFSA. Buy the US market with this one, though it pays little yield.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
Whether to own a US ETF that is CAD hedged or not For his clients, he owns both hedged and non-hedged. A small client who wants passive exposure with US cash, he'll open the US version. It depends on your view of the CAD. He wants full exposure to the USD. If you feel the CAD will weaken this year, them own the unhedged which is a solid, great way to get exposure to American stocks.
