(A Top Pick Mar 07/24, Down 5%)

Not too worried, given the short timeframe. In more volatile markets, small caps are going to move down more. Ideally, they play catchup later in the year. Prefers the mega-caps, but this is a way to not have all your eggs in one basket. Good place to be if there's another broad rally over the next 6 months or so.

E.T.F.'s
TOP PICK

Exposure to the Russell index, hedged to CAD, listed on the TSX so you don't have to go into US dollars. Market breadth is improving, so more companies are participating in the rally. This will continue for the next year or more as the bull market marches on. 

Gives you exposure to names that you wouldn't want to own on their own because of the risk. Good way to get diversity without the correlation to the overall market that you get with the large-cap names.

TOP PICK

Thesis is that small caps are going to play catch up. At top of its trading range, and he thinks it will break out as we see markets broadening. Great way to diversify. Upside probably $43 by end of year.

BUY
US small-cap exposure for an RRSP?

MER of XSU is 0.36%. Around for a dog's age. Replicates small-cap index well. Doesn't have the same valuation challenges as with the S&P 500 and concentration of the Magnificent 7.

Also consider XMC for more mid-cap exposure, MER of 0.16%, has done a bit better.

(Don't forget to incorporate foreign, developed areas from EMs ;)

COMMENT

It's the US small caps index. They do better in times of declining yields and higher growth. This is good if you want to hunker down and hedge the US dollar. Small caps are beat up, but he predicts a rotation in the coming year to favour small caps. XSU is decent, but he prefers SCZ.

DON'T BUY
Not an area he would pay attention to though it is interesting. In good economic times, small caps are the place to be. In this cycle, the big caps and tech has been carrying the ball. The ETF hasn’t gone anywhere. Maybe small-caps aren’t doing well this cycle. We are also late in the cycle so they’ve already had their run. In a sell-off, small-caps get hammered. Wait a while to see how the cycle goes.

This is a hedged ETF. A strong dollar would cause it to underperform. If the US$ rose, domestics would likely perform better. Large caps would do worse if the US$ rose.

COMMENT
This ETF hedges away the US dollar exposure. All the returns will be based on the market movement. Good if you want to protect away from currency movement.

BUY

An ETF to cover the Russell 1000 or 2000? O’shares tend to be expensive. This straight Russell 2000 ETF is better.

E.T.F.'s
BUY

Small-mid caps are starting to rise to the performance of large caps. This ETF is behaving very well. He'd buy it. If tariffs continue to be a concern, then small-midcaps are less exposed, which is maybe why they're performing better than the large caps. He has 10% US small-midcaps in his holdings.

TOP PICK

What is happening in the US in terms of repatriation of capital and taxes it is going to filtered through smaller companies as well. This is the Russell 2000 which is small caps edging on mid-cap.

COMMENT

iShares S&P 500 (CAD-Hedged) (XSP-T) or iShares Russell 2000 (CAD-Hedged) (XSU-T)? He frequently talks about factor investing, and one of the factors that is very real and very tangible is the small caps outperforming large caps over time. As a result, he expects this will give slightly higher returns, although a bit more volatile.

E.T.F.'s
WATCH

XSU-T and IWM-T. They broke down in September. They should find support just below here. If it breaks down below that then it has to find the next support level.

E.T.F.'s
DON'T BUY

Small caps in the US are much more overvalued. He is short the Russell 2000 right now.

PAST TOP PICK

(A Top Pick Jan 16/13. Up 33.9%.) Just in the process of moving his taxable accounts out into other ETFs. Really nothing wrong with this, except that he wants the hedge off at this time.
