COMMENT
XIC is slightly different because it's capped, but will pay distributions. HXT does not pay, but compounds gains within the ETF.

BUY
Always a core position with him. SHOP had a market cap higher than RY, and this has never worked out well. Remember Potash, Valeant, Nortel. When he sees that happening, he always wants to cut back a bit. But now SHOP has dropped over 50%. So XIC is not overvalued. Lots of good stuff in it. He'd be a buyer. Banks are solid, energy doing well. Only problem is government regulation in Canada, so he tends to be underweight Canada, and overweight the US. The ETFs from Vanguard and BMO are very similar to the XIC.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
XIC vs. XIU Correlations and holdings are quite similar. XIC contains about 240 holdings, so more diversified. XIC has a 6 bps MER, while XIU is 18 bps. Performance has been very similar. XIU has a bigger weighting in banks, about 28%. XIC has about 23% in banks. Not much diversification if you own both. Also look at XEI, a high dividend ETF, geared towards a higher yield.
E.T.F.'s
COMMENT
Returns are very similar. A broader TSX exposure do beat large caps, and other times it's the opposite. When banks and energy does well, HXT does better. HXT has a slightly better tax structure.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
A low cost way to get diversification. It is a great choice. You might be underrepresented in healthcare, however. He runs LS-T which will get you some of those companies.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
It covers the TSX, very comprehensive, a core Canadian holding. He's very overweight in the US, but for the TSX, he owns this.
E.T.F.'s
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Dec 05/19, Up 2%) It is a core holding for the TSX. He has little Canadian holdings and has not had for several years. He is not that keen on Canada mainly because of government policy bent on destroying the energy industry.
E.T.F.'s
COMMENT

XIC-T is not tracking the index, TSX –T or TSX-60. The problem is the system. It does not look at dividends correctly. He finds that it tracks the TSX correctly. The TSX is identical to the XIC-T but tools online do not necessarily track the over all returns accurately.

E.T.F.'s
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick May 25/18, Up 6%) A core ETF and still likes it. Fantastic diversification at a low MER. A good way to get into the TSX. He sold his banks, but owns them through this.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
It came along after XIU, is cheaper and gives much broader exposure of TSX--large, mid and even small caps. He prefers this to the XIU. Includes TD and Enbridge.
E.T.F.'s
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Feb 09/18, Up 12%) It made a nice recovery this quarter.
E.T.F.'s
TOP PICK
This invests in the broad Canadian index, including the riskier sectors of gold and oil. It's come back nicely after the December sell-off.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
XIC-T vs. SPY-N vs. VT-N. After a sharp decline after a rally you are likely to retest lows. The thrust off the bottom was so significant. 10 of the last 12 corrections never went back to retest the lows. Positioning is so defensive that people are not likely to get the retesting of the lows they are waiting for. The commodity complex could see strength. All three should do well.
E.T.F.'s
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Dec 14/17, Down 4%) A good way to play the TSX, but this is down because of bad timing; the TSX was down in 2018.
