PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Mar 31/22, Down 5.5%)Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly Our PAST TOP PICK with XLP has triggered its stop at $72. To remain disciplined, we recommend covering the position at this time. This will result in a net investment loss of 1%, when considering the previous buy recommendation.
E.T.F.'s
COMMENT
You need some staples in your portfolio. A lot of active managers can't go to cash, so they will buy staples. Just note that some staples stocks have run up, and don't chase a stock only for its dividend, because the share price can drop.

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O’Reilly We again reiterate this defensive holding ETF that focuses on Consumer Staples monsters like PG, KO, PEP and WMT, as a TOP PICK. We also like the dividend yield for being paid to hold your cash. It has a seasonal cycle where April tends to be a good time to enter. We recommend trailing up the stop (from $70) to $72. Yield 2.30%

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick May 05/21, Up 10%) Not a sector to be in right now, but put it on the back burner. If it starts to outperform in January or February, might mean that the market's being a little bit skittish and could be vulnerable to a correction. Monitor this sector. In March or April, he'd be looking to transition into the sector.

BUY
Many are worried that rates will rise but he doesn't expect them to in the near-term so XLP.

TOP PICK
Not an exciting sector, but this is the time of year it tends to do well, especially if the market's getting a little softer. In March, the sector outperformed the market. It is expensive at 21.5 PE, but investors are willing to pay up when they're concerned about market valuations. Yield is 2.52%.

TOP PICK

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly XLP is a defensive holding ETF that focuses on Consumer Staples monsters like PG, KO, PEP and WMT. We also like the dividend yield for being paid to hold your cash. We don't typically put a stop loss on a broad-based, defensive holding, but we will recommend $63.50. Any breakdown below this might be a signal of further downward corrections in the market overall. Yield 2.51%

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick May 07/20, Up 12%) Strongly outperformed the broad market starting late February. It was a pandemic trade. From late March to early June, it gave it all back. We've seen a baseline, and now it's starting to outperform again. August and September are dangerous times for the market, so this is a favourable trade right now.
E.T.F.'s
TOP PICK
Everyone is rushing into tech but if things turn down, it will be hit quite hard. Seasonally it is weak starting in June. He would flick the switch to consumer staples right now.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Dec 06/18, Up 14%) Hit new all-time high this week. Protypically recession resilient. Boring, but should perform well in a maturing economy.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Apr 03/19, Up 2%) It is usually seasonal from April to October. It was defensive. It looks like it might turn down a little. He still holds it at this time.
E.T.F.'s
TOP PICK
Late-April to October is a defensive way to play consumer staples. Expect a break-out coming in this space and XLP. Now, it's a little weak as it enter seasonal strength. XLP is a way to take off some risk in a portfolio by starting to get more defensive.
