Signal Opinion Expert
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.

(A Top Pick June 30/17. Up 8%.)  That’s a core holdings in all of his portfolio. It’s a little bit more diversified than the XIU-T. He likes both because they both have a liquid options market. From time to time he will buy a Put or sometime he will sell a Call which is quite rare, so he likes the fact that its liquid. These indexes don’t get away from the typical 65-70% of banks, energy, base metals and gold. He would recommend ZIN-T from BMO because it’s industrials rather than being financials and it’s a good complement to the big ones.

In the past, he’s tended to focus more on the BMO Low Volatility Cdn Eqty (ZLB-T) on the Canadian side, but it lacks exposure to commodities. If you want exposure to the commodity side, this is one way to do it.

There are people concerned about Trump, NAFTA, real estate, etc. and have withdrawn form the market and are sitting on cash. He has come up with suggestions that are relatively safe and represent a broad diversification in relatively safe areas. With this, you are going into a broad market. If the TSX does break out, this stock will match that performance. It gives you good diversification.

XIC-T vs. ZCN-T.  He does not know the difference between them.  The Canadian market is the least diversified in the world.  He does not want to own anything that tracks the TSX unless we are in boom time in the banks or commodities.  He does not invest in ETFs.

COMMENT

The premiums for options seem very, very thin. Because of the diversity that protects you? Yes. This one is just the capped TSX 60. It was designed when Nortel was a big part of the index, so they capped the exposure to one stock. We don’t really have that issue today. You are looking at a diversified ETF that isn’t particularly volatile.

Should you hold other ETFs directly that are held within this ETF?  XIC-T is the broad TSX composite.  You could sell and then overweight ZEB-T to overweight the banks, for example.  Sector specific ETFs can be used instead to overweight certain sectors.

He would consider this as a core long-term holding. One of the biggest mistakes investors make is that the trade too often and usually at the worst time. This one has been hit hard because of Canada's commodity exposure.
