(A Top Pick May 11/10. Down 6.3%.) Financial ETF. He loves the US financials because 1) earnings are quite strong underneath because of reduced loan losses, 2) US is moving more towards a Canadian model and 3) everybody hates them. For trader types, you can go from $14.50 to $17, which is not a bad flip. He could see it reaching $30.

US Financial Services ETF. Expecting a lot out of the US financials. As loan-loss provisions start to wither away, earnings power becomes much greater. He is looking for explosive earnings. Will probably have to wait to see the 2nd quarter #’s in July before it breaks out of its range of $15.50-$17.

US financial ETF. US financials are probably going to do OK for the rest of the year. If you're comfortable owning US financials, this would be one of the better ones they use. Has lots of liquidity and you can do auction trading on it.

Financial ETF. If you are going to play US banks this is the one he would use and preferably over using individual banks. US banks are not out of the woods yet. Still have some issues. More than $1 trillion in bank reserves set aside for the commercial real estate issues.

US Financial ETF. The problem he has with this one is that it is not hedged against the US$. Way too much uncertainty.

US financial ETF. Prefers this broader basket. Balance sheet risks in the individual companies are hard to evaluate right now.

Likes US financials in general. There won't be the growth that there was before but the valuations across the board are a screaming buy. Too much risk within any single name.

A US S&P 500 Financials ETF on the broad US financials space. Very good product to get exposure to US financials. Still some questions around financials and whether they subprime mess is cleaned up. Isn't worth rushing into it yet. You are going to start to see some audited financials come out giving more disclosure in the next 2 weeks.
