Why do the dividends on this and similar ETFs fluctuate so much from quarter to quarter? The lumpiness may be due to M&A activity in the space and CQQ had to distribute a capital gain; or some international stocks pay dividends only once a year, so they're lumpy. Water infrastructure is so essential to human life, and this infrastructure is 100 years old and needs repair. A massive opportunity to rebuild and fix this, but the water space is not cheap.

He's used it in the past, buy uses something else with more diversity. But CWW is good with fine diversification and has performed well this year. We're in a world dealing with climate change and drought. So getting water to people is becoming a bigger deal and therefore more demand for companies that deal in water. CWW is fairly safe for this need for water.

Long term hold? There's nothing wrong with it, but CWW doesn't excite him. You can buy it now, but he feels neutral about it. He'd rather buy SPY.

A long-term hold to buy on dips. Not a fan of water stocks. Limits your water stocks to 5% on your portfolio. If you want dividends, go to banks and utilities. These stocks will grow, but likely valuations will run ahead of the stocks. Better to donate to a water charity than buying water stocks.

(A Top Pick Sep 04/19, Up 10%) He sold his shares today due to them holding Olin Corp, a chlorine producer for water treatment, which also owns Winchester Guns and Ammunitions. He had an ethical conflict with owning a company with ties to the gun industry.

ETF Water ETF. It is a mix of utilities and infrastructure. It has a nice mix of growth and yield. Flooding will only get worse with climate change.

Water has more value than oil, long term. Likes this. A good counterbalance to oil in a portfolio.

He doesn't see any advantage with it. It is very unlikely that he will ever buy this. He doesn't see the growth here. Too nichey for him.

This is part of the ESG (environmental, social and governance) theme. It is a good instrument if this cause is close to your heart. Might be early (Which, financially early is like being wrong) as an investment.

(A Top Pick Sep 04/18, Down 5%) It's industrials and utilities in water. He's not surprised this is under water because industrials are down. As climate change worsens, governments will need to invest heavily in water infrastructure (due to flooding and drought). He has no problem adding to his position.

Global warming means water is precious, and governments will invest in water infrastructure. This sector will do really well as global warming increases.

The problem for this ETF is that it is not a pure play. A little of a dog’s breakfast. Not interested in this.

An infrastructure play, and the sort of thing that if you believe long-term that infrastructure is going to do fairly well, this is pretty safe. With all infrastructure plays, you are not going to get the massive sexy returns that you get in certain other things, but you are also a lot less likely to see a down number.

(Top Pick Mar 17/15, Up 1.28%) You need desalination and so on around the world. The need is great. He got out over the last two or three weeks to go into a fund that just came out.

He has tended to ignore the sector, but some people are highly recommending the water sector. He doesn’t know the individual components stocks of this one. It has done well, so he is going to have a look at this.
