Long vs. short bond ETF: XLB vs XLH If you expect rates will rise, buy the short ETF. If they stay low (he does), buy the long. Keep in mind that the curve is quite flat. He'd buy a longer-duration bond ETF, XLB.

(A Top Pick Apr 03/19, Down 4%) It is a weak time of year for materials. It went up starting the beginning of the year but it looks like it has broken its trend. It has not panned out.

A recession-proof ETF? Has a yield to maturity of 3.2%, with a duration of 14.7. But he doesn't expect a recession; American will slow down and the rest of the world will pick up, primarily China. Also look at the Chinese and Japanese currencies (FXY or KCNY).

Commodities will be lower for longer, but we're in a global cyclical upturn. This will lift commodity ETFs including this one. It's a decent holding, but also look at emerging markets.

Possible this is the worst investment for long-term hold one could make. When you factor in inflation, tax on distributions and MER, then you have no real return on your money. Shy away completely from it. Doesn’t mean you can’t trade it.

20 year and longer bonds. If you are bullish on stocks short term then you don’t want to own this. Bond yields can only go so low. Good as a trading vehicle. You can use this from time to time to hedge equity exposure but it has volatility.

Canadian Long Bond ETF. If there is an uptick in interest rates, he has a Stop at around $22. Risk/reward is fantastic.
