Utilities don't function that well in a reflationary trade. They will do well in a deflationary time with uncertainty. This sector will not respond well at this time. The covered call writing is not a terribly thing at this time. You take advantage of it. The premiums are rather small, however since the stocks are not that volatile. For 5 to 10 years this is a wonderful idea.

A covered called strategy. Utilities, telecos, and some pipelines. There are different elements of utility type stocks. Interest rate sensitive. Has high dividend payers. With market volatility likely to be elevated, the premiums will remain decent.

The caller requested suggestions for higher dividend ETF. There's a number of ways to play it. Go to an ETF website to see which ETF fits your profile. Covered calls provide higher dividends.

There are two elements to covered call strategies. There is the underlying stocks, and then the option premium. Volatility will continue to be high for the next couple years. Premiums will remain elevated. FIE pays back a part of your money back. There are a couple different elements to consider.

There is space for these ETFs for yield seekers. One of the challenges in 2020 was that dividend paying stocks did terrible relative to technology that does not pay dividends. Still likes them for conservative investors.

Relatively stable players. Would prefer ZWU for yield seekers who want exposure to these stocks. A good way to extract yield from markets. BCE is probably around $60-$65. At around $55 a buy that pays a nice yield.

It is wages that ultimately cause inflation. This ETF has utilities and so is very interest rate sensitive. If interest rates creep up, this will lag a little.

It is not a replacement for fixed income since there will be equity market volatility. However, it yields around 7% and is a sort of proxy for low bond rates.

They increase the yield on utilities with covered calls. It is not a bad place to be. You are always subject to the underlying securities' risks. It is probably a good choice right now.

Loves the holding for investors seeking attractive yield on a diversified basis. It does have some risk like exposure to the pipelines. There are telcos and utilities as well in the ETF. A great diversified holding. As interest rates stay low, it can provide good yield with less volatility than the broader market.

He hasn't added to his position, but for yield players, it is at an attractive level. This is one of his top pick of the week.

He likes the US dollar exposure. Overall, he is negative on the market in general. Balancing that with the government action, we probably won't get a sharp sell-off. He is positive on the defensive nature and the higher yield.

Looking for yield? He does not really like this one. Utilities, as a group are good. Covered calls are good, when used opportunistically. He likes calls as a tactical tool instead.

You will own Canadian utility companies, while they right covered calls. If you think the market is going sideways, it would be a good play. He likes the dividends utilities spit out. Yield 7.8%
