He likes ZEO's equal weighted in energy. But also look at HOG-T which is midstream oil with a very different set of companies. Buy both, in fact. HOG also pays a 4.5% yield, slightly lower than ZEO's.

Equal weight. It has all the majors. Every time he buys it he loses money. When we have a national energy policy he would buy it. For now, no.

(A Top Pick Nov 23/17, Down 14%) Canadian oil has been beaten up since Nov. 2017. Oil investors are frustrated. ZEO is equal-weighted, so it's biased towards mid-caps.

A Canadian oil ETF? ZEO offers better diversification than XEG, or especially HOG-T which focusses on energy midstreams (storage and transportation of oil/gas) with little overlap to the other two ETFs. Own ZEO and HOG. If you don't care about risk, then go for ZEO only.

ZEO-T vs XEG-T ETF – The difference between these two is concentration. The XEG is dominated 50% between CNQ-T and SU-T. In the equal weight portfolio (ZEO) these represent only 17%. There is a higher yield with XEG.

(Past Top Pick Oct.10, 2017, Down 7%) Sold it and immediately also sold XEG, both being Canadian oil ETFs, because he sees no pipelines being built in Canada. The current $50 spread between WCS and WTI is crazy, nuts. Canadian taxpayers are losing money. It's absolute madness.

Play it with puts and calls. It's stuck in a tight range with only one spike above $12 which he doubts it'll crack again soon. This ETF doesn't move enough for him, so he'd rather own the individual oil stocks.

Sell or keep holding? The disconnect between price of oil and price of producers can only last so long. Seems totally irrational. Some think that fossil fuels are a thing of the past. Eventually the market sorts out these disconnects. In the next couple of quarters, these stocks should move up.

In the next couple of months there may be a little more upside. At the beginning of the year the stocks were overpriced. He is going to trim when it gets back to the high end of its trading range. Don’t add to it now but you could buy on pullbacks.

He was buying the energy sector last week. Now it is his biggest overweight sector. If you go back 5 years, the lows of 2011/12 were in the $12 range. Oil was on its way up to $100. When oil was $100, this ETF was almost $18 at the peak. The recent peak was $13 as oil was at $55 late last year. That is not really that sustainable. Own it between $11 and $12 and buy or sell below or above these limits. He is not inclined to add to it here.

iUnits S&P/TSX Capped Energy (XEG-T) or BMO S&P/TSX Oil & Gas (ZE0-T)? Both of these track very similar industries. This one is an “equal weighting” of the companies it holds. They will both be very correlated in their performance. If you think energy is going to continue rocketing and inventories are showing signs of drawing down, you are picking up some of the companies that have been beaten down the most.

If you sold oil stocks for the tax loss, you buy this ETF as a lateral move because you can’t buy the stocks back for 30 days. The volume is good. This one is equal weight, which he prefers at this stage of the advance.

BMO S&P/TSX Oil & Gas (ZEO-T) or iUnits S&P/TSX Capped Energy (XEG-T)? Has always been a fan of the equal weight side of things. If you want torque, this equal weight is probably going to do better than the large weight. They actually track pretty closely.

If you believe that oil is on sale, is there an ETF, US or Canadian, that has been beaten down worse than the others, and is this an opportunity? There are a couple that you could look at. iShares S&P/TSX Capped Energy (XEG-T) and BMO S&P/TSX Oil and Gas (ZEO-T). These are very similar, so either one. On the other hand, you could go into the US and pick up SPDR Energy (XLE-N), which has not been slaughtered quite as badly as the Canadian stuff.

Yields 3.4% and on a risk adjusted basis, and you get a better quality dividend than the banks. It is one of the largest holdings he has. It is getting very attractive on a relative basis. It is a global dividend seeking fund. There will be increased volatility for the next year or so.

Actually iUnits S&P/TSX Capped Energy (XEG-T) has done much better, simply because Canadian Natural Resources (CNQ-T) and Suncor (SU-T), which are 30%-40% of the index, did so well over the last 6 months. As the energy business continues to do well, the gains will become more evenly distributed. Owning something like this in addition to, or instead of XEG would be the way to go if you like energy.

An equal weighted ETF. He would buy equal weighted over market weighted any day. Looking at oil in North America, there are so many moving parts. There is a worldwide backlash against our oil sands. We have pipelines that need to go east, west and south and none of them are going anywhere. There are rail issues. There is a game changer that the US will be the world’s largest producer by 2015. He would not be taking a huge position in this. 3.2% yield. (See Top Picks.)
