Buy, hold or sell? Liked it till recently. Have difficulty seeing any upside with the oil price in Canada. Normally he would say buy it, now he would say look at the US.

This depends on your view of energy. It has a very nice yield. If he wants an energy play and wants to be conservative, he would definitely buy this. In most cases, when he is dealing with a commodity like this, he prefers it to be unhedged with a covered call. On anything that is of a riskier commodity nature, he wants to have the full growth.

With the acquisition of COS-T, covered calls won’t benefit after a certain debt. The takeover will probably not benefit an ETF with a covered call.

Not sure how safe the dividends are. They have inexpensive ETFs based on swaps. He is not concerned that it is derivative-based. It is currency hedged.

An ETF of energy stocks and “covered calls” are written on all the positions. Understand what covered calls are all about. Hypothetically you have stock trading at $28 and you write a covered call option for $30 which will bring in $0.40. The cost is now $27.60 but if the price now goes to $30, then you are obligated to sell. If the stock goes to $35, $40, too bad, you have to sell at $30. Covered calls work wonderful in ranging markets. If you think things are going higher, you don’t want to do covered calls.

A BMO ZEO with no covered call it yields 3.2 but HEE-T gets it up to 6 or 7% with the covered call strategy. If you think the energy sector is going up over the next year or two, then go with ZEO, otherwise go with HEE, which he thinks may be better for now.

As bond yields have gone down, we have seen a lot of income generating ETF's. This one, like many others, sell Call Options on the securities that they actually hold, which generates a certain stream of income on a regular basis. In the last couple of years, the market has been so volatile that these have tended to underperform their plain vanilla cousins.

Enhanced Income Energy ETF. If you believe it is compelling to buy oil stocks, which he does, this is a good way to do it, especially for a person who is at or near retirement. You get a margin of safety with the covered call strategy. The only problem is that if it goes up quickly, you won't participate fully on the upside.

Enhanced Income Energy ETF. A covered call writing ETF. The reason there is a 21% distribution is because they are taking all of the option premiums that they sold initially and paying it out to you. That is not a realistic number for covered call writing on a long-term basis. If you own, take half the distribution and reinvest the other half back into the fund.

Using a lot of covered call writing to get energy exposure. You are paying a little more but you get the income from the covered call strategy. A very conservative way to get exposure to oil patch for the long term. Prefers this to writing your own covered calls.

Enhanced Income Energy ETF. Write covered calls against energy names. Looks interesting at this point but not aware of what the dividend is. A decent time to be buying as you are going to get some pretty good premiums on the calls you are selling because of the underlying.
