Nice thing is they take a portion of the portfolio and write covered calls on it, so you get some income as you go along and it takes out some of the volatility. You underperform a bit, but you get the income. Not the best way if you're bullish on gold. With this ETF, you get the best of both worlds.

(A Top Pick Aug 01/19, Up 40%) The companies in HEP have outperformed gold itself and will continue to do so. HEP has a covered writing overlay on parts of the portfolio which reduces volatility. It's been parabolic recently, so wait for a pullback.

HEP-T vs. XGD-T. HEP-T has a covered call overly to the gold stocks and generates extra yield. If you are bullish then you don’t want that covered call. If you are a yield seeker then it is a fine way to get exposure to gold.

The trend and breakout is pervasive. There is nothing like buying securities at the beginning of a bull market. The next 10 years is more likely to see a 450% return in gold than in the NASDAQ in his opinion. It has a covered writing strategy to bring up the yield.

Nothing wrong with it. Covered call on gold. He's not a gold fan. But if he's going to play something as volatile as gold, he wants the full potential of growth rather than using the covered call.

XGD-T vs HEP-T vs GLD-N. XGD-T is global, primarily Canadian gold stocks. HEP-T is based on futures contracts, a more pure play. GLD-N holds physical gold. Not bullish on gold, but will trade it seasonally.

Gold stocks don’t generally pay a dividend. Horizons and a few others shave come out with ETFs where they write options and take the premiums. Over the last 5 years there is a loss but if you compare it now, you get a much lower return compared to the appropriate index.

Would like a Gold ETF but enjoys getting dividends - Don't think dividend and gold stock. They are two different things. Don't go together. Even if it pays dividend it is going to move a lot. Gold is going into a consolidation. He prefers XGD. The granddaddy in the space. But it is expensive at 65 basis points.

Really doesn’t like this. If he is going to be writing a covered call position on gold, which he doesn’t like to begin with, he doesn’t want to be messing around with a yield component. He wants to get the full benefit of the rise in the price of the commodity, rather than hedging it off.

It generates a good dividend by writing Calls against the positions it has in its portfolio. Between the end of July and through to September, gold miners tend to go higher.

Not a good investment. This is large-cap gold companies, so you are going to get the movement of those companies and you are going to get a dividend and a covered call premium attached to that. Right now you are getting a yield of about 13%. In the past 12 months, it was trading at around the $9 mark and is now at around $6. Yielding about 8% a year ago. Has no idea where gold is going to go.

He doesn’t follow it. In general he looks at upper $1400s to lower $1500s for gold prices in the coming year. We are in a trading range. Something needs to come along to change that.

If you are bearish on the sector and you want to generate some income, this is the way to play it. If we see gold above $1800, abandon this.
