CDZ-T vs. XEI-T. CDZ-T screen for companies that have increased their dividends over the last 5 years. XEI-T just screens for high dividend payers. There is a risk that the dividend could be too high and the company can't keep paying it out. The XEI-T is more volatile.

Looks to buy companies that growth their dividends over the last couple of years. It is done well but it is expensive at 66 basis points MER. Maybe consider the iShares TSX composite High dividend ETF where you are paying 20 basis points. He is Ok with dividend payers, doesn't need dividend growers in a stable interest rate environment. In the US the one to own is HDV.

He was buying it for diversification--it's not only about banks. There's nothing wrong with this. This ETF is about dividends as well as growth.

Dividend investing is a long term factor strategy and this is one of the granddaddies in the sector. To be classed as Aristocrat, dividends have to have been steady or rising for 5 years in Canada and 25 years in the US holdings. Its fee is a little higher than new products. ZEI-T is perhaps another alternative with a lower fee.

A leftover from Claymore. Not as high quality. Somebody called it the proletarian as opposed to aristocrats. It is diverse. Perfectly acceptable ETF.

It is one of the earliest ETFs in Canada. There are others now with better pricing. A payout fall could only reflect a fall in the underlying sectaries’ payout.

A leftover from Claymore’s ETF’s. It’s a lesser quality ETF compared to the ZDV in terms of the stocks it holds. Doesn’t see anything wrong with holding it.

Largely a lot of companies that you haven’t heard of. He is not thrilled with this and would rather do one of the dividend plays that have more large caps such as iShares S&P/TSX Equity Income (XEI-T) or iShares Cdn Div (XDV-T).

Has been using the XEI-T instead of this. This has a fairly large energy component. It is a perfectly good dividend paying ETF.

TFSA means “Totally For Speculation Account.” Buying uranium ETF for long hold is probably great. Thinks we are seeing a bottom in uranium. It could be a triple, or maybe 10 times.

Companies that raise dividends outperform companies that pay dividends, which outperform companies that pay no dividends. Therefore, this would be the one to buy. Yield of 3.22%.

As an active manager, he doesn’t use ETFs per se. This one is a broadly based Canadian dividend type so you will have a fair bit of diversification in it.

iShares S&P/TSX Cdn Div Aristocrats (CDZ-T) on a pull back of $1 or iShares S&P/TSX Preferred (CPD-T)? This one is fine, but not sure if the CPD gets rid of your perpetuals. If it doesn’t, they can run for a long time if there is a rise in interest rates.

Something for an education fund 3-5 years out, conservative with a little bit of upside growth and some dividend yield? Compared to TSX60 or a broad inch mark, it has lower volatility, better dividends and better performance over 3, 5 and even 10 years. Corporate profits have been tremendous over the last few years and are sitting on a lot of cash. One way or another that cash is going to filter out to investors through dividends, stock buyback's, mergers, etc.
