Is big tech the new defensive? After the inflation/interest rate scare of the spring, investors are runnuing back into these names. Of course, there are pros and cons. Stocks like Apple, Amazon and Microsoft boast explosive growth, but pay low/no dividends and trade at high PE's. Short answer: yes, you need to own at least some big tech to balance your steady eddys and dividend payers. While Apple is trading below US$150 per share, Alphabet (Google) is changing hands at over US$2,700 for a single share. The typical retail investor can't afford that, which why is VGT is handy. VGT charges only a 0.1% MER and pays a 0.66% dividend yield, which is modest, but remember that most tech names pay nada. Apple and Microsoft comprise 36% of VGT, so be comfortable with these two companies.
E.T.F.'s
HOLD
VGT vs. RYT. RYT is a basket of tech companies, all under equal weight, costing 40 basis points. Compare it to Vanguard VGT, at only 10 basis points, which has the big boys like Apple, Microsoft, Visa, Mastercard, Cisco. Later in the cycle, you want to be in the larger cap names, greater dividend, more defensive, cash flow is better.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
Tech has been very popular among his clients who want exposure to FAANGs. He likes this a lot. VGT is one of the most liquid, diversified and cheapest ETFs in this space. It holds hundreds of companies, a bit of everything. Charges only 10 basis points.
E.T.F.'s
COMMENT
VGT vs QQQ-Q VGT is a pure tech play vs. QQQ which also holds healthcare and biotech. You're not de-risking by moving into QQQ from VGT. Also look at TXF.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
He's bullish on tech and the good thing here is that this ETF is diversified, not just FAANG, though it's all American. Nothing wrong with this. It's up 9% this year despite all the volatility.
E.T.F.'s
DON'T BUY
He likes the tech space which has runway to grow. It holds Apple, but it doesn't own FB anymore, but it owns Visa and Mastercard. He'd rather buy the individual names than the ETF. That said, don't overweight this space--people have been piling in and the trade is getting crowded. As for Apple, guidance for phone sales forward will be weaker, so that's a caveat. Depends on 60% of revenues on the iPhone, too.
E.T.F.'s
HOLD

This is riding a monster trend and now you need to focus on managing your potential downside. Technology is non-mean reverting sector which is great, but the price is at very high valuations now. You may consider setting stops, but would continue to hold. Remember this sector dropped 90% on a sell off back in 2000.

E.T.F.'s
COMMENT

Generally speaking, tech valuations are high. It's a low-fee ETF, but this a volatile sector ETF, prone to wild swings. Be careful here.

E.T.F.'s
COMMENT

Just hit an all-time high today. He loves the tech space, but prefers buying the individual names as a general investing strategy. This ETF is fine and will do well going forward. Caution: the tech trade may become volatile and it's already getting crowded. VGT is all U.S. holdings, so it's better to look overseas, particularly Asia.

E.T.F.'s
COMMENT

Technology is interesting in the sense that we don’t have the same bubble we had in the late 1990s, because the values are not crazy. Tech stocks are trading on pretty reasonable P/E ratios. Probably a good portfolio filler, but if you want higher returns, he would look elsewhere.

E.T.F.'s
COMMENT

This has all the big names. What’s not to like? It is the best sector in the S&P 500 combined with a 10-basis point management fee. Technology is delivering incredible earnings growth, so you are going to have a high P/E ratio. However, in a larger context, this P/E ratio is not crazy for what you are getting. He likes it.

E.T.F.'s
BUY
Vanguard products are really solid and their fees are miniscule. If you are looking to add info tech to your portfolio, keep it to a minimum. Fairly well diversified. Mainly US exposure. Loss of liquidity.
