Allan Tong’s Discover Picks BMO's Equal-Weight Banks ETF, outperformed ZFN last year by 2%. As the name suggests, ZEB holds the big six banks more or less equally. It charges an MER similar to ZFN's at 0.6%, but pays a higher dividend of 3.33%. Volumes are more robust at an average of 612,000. And like XFN, ZEB is currently trading at 52-week highs.

E.T.F.'s
TOP PICK
Strategic positioning, rather than buying individual names, since he might be in the sector for only 3 months or so. Seasonality from October to end of December, and also from mid-January to April. He's overweight Canadian banks at this time. They've been performing well, as they do when markets are volatile. Will do well if rates go up. Sweet spot. Yield as a group is about 4%.
E.T.F.'s
HOLD
Domestically, he doesn't generally use ETFs, saving those for foreign exposure instead. Overall, banks are good to be in right now, given world uncertainties. Rules being relaxed means share buybacks and dividend increases. Earnings potential over the next year will stall out, until the economy gets more settled. Prime area to hold for safety.
E.T.F.'s
COMMENT
Question on underlying dividend increase. ZEB yields will rise with dividend increases from the underlying stocks. For ZWB, the dividend increase will increase yield, but much of the performance comes from the volatility and the premium.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
ZEB vs. ZWB He prefers ZEB, with a lower management fee. ZWB has a higher yield at 5%, instead of 3.1%. ZEB has outperformed the covered call strategy. You want to own the underlying securities without being called out. Covered call strategy works better in a sideways or downwards market. But if the the market's falling, you probably don't want to own either.
E.T.F.'s
WAIT
The banking sector in Canada is always attractive. You can buy on tips. Does not have a preference on banks. An equal weight or individual purchase of banks is fine. Has started lightening in NA banks and started adding to Brazilian and Indian bank names. Wait for a pullback before adding to Canadian banks.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
Has seen massive flow into this fund. 28 basis points. You could do it, but it is also religiously managed. With an inflationary framework, it should benefit the Canadian banks. Hard to argue against banks. Going forward, could we see deflationary pressures? Yes. The tech revolution, debt and demographics are deflationary.

TOP PICK
They cut the MER recently to 0.25%. It was too high before at 0.65%. Holds the six Canadian banks.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
Banks have exposure to interest rate sensitive sectors. If there are growth shocks as well, banks will respond negatively. If there is a little bit of inflation, they might do okay. You will get a dividend from the bank and positive growth from Canada's economic growth.
E.T.F.'s
HOLD

A reasonable holding, but better opportunities elsewhere. Canadian banks have an oligopoly and will continue to do well, but they're pricey compared to the world. Expectations are high. He'd be overweight the US banks through XLF, or the European banks through EUFN.

E.T.F.'s
COMMENT

The profitability of banks is net interest margins. The steepening of the yield curve has led to banks being more profitable. A flattening yield curve is a headwind. We are not there yet. When the yield curve starts to flatten. ZEB is good to capture upside, and ZWB for when it will go sideways to down.

E.T.F.'s
COMMENT
Different ways to play the Canadian banks. There is some volatility but there is yield to compensate.
E.T.F.'s
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Mar 01/21, Up 9%) No bank exposure right now. Seasonally, starts to back off right about now, especially if interest rates do start to move down. Might be an uptick in August, with earnings. Best to wait until October to re-enter.
E.T.F.'s
COMMENT

ZEB is equal weight where as ZWB is equal weight banks with a covered call overlay. When you think the markets will go sideways or down, covered calls will perform better. However, the covered call gives away some of the upside potential so if you are bullish on growth, forego the covered call.
