BUY
Price not reflective of yield also included in shares. Yield seeker that will give 6-7% return. Less volatility than other dividend payers. Will include utilities and pipelines.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
He has recommended this. When there's uncertainty over inflation, utilities are attractive given steady revenues. Selling covered calls adds income. This won't shoot the lights out, but won't shoot you in the foot. Solid for retirees. Most returns come from dividends, not capital appreciation.

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O’Reilly An ETF holding utility, telecom and pipeline companies, which enhances distributions through the use of writing covered calls. A defensive portfolio of holdings with a good yield. Its holdings are about 2/3 Canadian and the rest US. We recommend setting a stop loss at $9.50, looking to achieve $14.75 – upside potential of 30%. Yield 8.5%
E.T.F.'s
BUY
If underlying stocks are cutting dividends, then ETF will fall. Not seeing dividends being cut anywhere. Would recommend for a defensive investment.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
Great ETF that has exposure to utilities, telco's and pipelines. Dividend rate sensitive to inflation. High dividend yield at 7%. Basket of Canadian dividend paying companies. Would be good for a portion of the portfolio (not 100%).
E.T.F.'s
COMMENT
What is the tax treatment of this, yield or capital gains? Yes, some will be capital gains, some dividends. Your tax slip will break down the tax categories.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
Includes names in Canada and US. Dividend plus a premium. Pipeline names and telcos. Good ETF from someone who wants a high level of income, though not necessarily for growth. Yield about 7.6%.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
A great strategy for low volatility investors. Any price below ~$12 is a good buying opportunity. High dividend yield, with low risk.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
Great way to get lower volatility and lower risk exposure to markets. Recent weakness due to hit to energy markets. Like it a lot bellow $12.5. Good buying opportunity on this dip.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
Note that these aren't your typical utilities, but also pipelines like TransCanada, BCE and Verizon. Holds defensive, dividend players. Pays a 7.5% dividend yield. Holds safe, low-beta names. Likes it. It has performed well, down less than 1% YTD in today's market.
E.T.F.'s
BUY on WEAKNESS
Good for dividend portfolio? Love it. Don't own it right now to reduce exposure to energy and pipelines. 13 / 12.5 area really attractive. If you need the dividend, no reason to sell it now.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
Yield is really high, around 7%. Remember that, for utilities, because prices are regulated by government, they can't respond as well to rate increases, and so they tend to underperform markets. When you put a covered call overlay on them, it reduces the upside a bit, but half of it is not covered.
E.T.F.'s
COMMENT
Holds non-traditional utilities like Canadian pipelines, plus BCE and Telus, Verizon, US pipelines. Covered call can boost income up to 7% here. When markets move higher, covered calls lag. Does really well in a flattish market, compared to owning the underlying securities. Good for people who want income, not necessarily looking for the capital gain.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
A way to extract yield from the markets without too much risk. Has always recommended for income.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
Utilities, pipelines, telecoms. Very nice dividend of around 7.6% with the covered call. YTD, down only 1.24%, which is not bad. Good name for income, not a ton of capital appreciation.
