VCN vs. VDY

VCN is an all cap with about 175 stocks. VDY focuses on dividend payers, so it has banks and oil and the like.

WEAK BUY
Given oil downturn recently Doesn't see a significant effect by oil prices. He likes WDY and other dividend-paying ETFs though prefers a covered call one.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
Holds quality names, paying dividends, like the big banks and CNQ. Is down only 0.63% YTD which is great vs. the TSX. Pays nearly a 4% dividend yield.

BUY
Allan Tong’s Discover Picks Another 23.7% of VDY is based in oil stocks, a volatile group but should enjoy continued high oil prices this winter. Steady, boring telecoms and utilities make up another 14% of this ETF. Nothing sexy here, but every portfolio needs a grey, quiet holding to anchor the volatility of the others. Also, VDY charges a low MER of 0.21% and pays a 12-month 3.67% dividend yield paid monthly. Read Travel Stocks for 2022 + 1 Low Risk ETF for our full analysis.

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.

VDY vs. VRE when buying dips We just had a dip on Friday and you have to pounce on them. It's hard. You need to find a stock that trades in a channel, then buy when it hits the bottom of that channel. The TSX is weighted in the VDY. He prefers VDY given the underperformance of Canadian banks in VRE.

COMMENT

VDY vs XEI ETF? VDY and XEI is very similar and their prices track closely. VDY tends to hold higher financial sector exposure, where yields are generally higher. Whereas XEI holds the highest yield payers on the composite Index. He also likes XDIV which has the lowest MER (0.11%). It holds "quality" holdings, using an algorithm to pick higher ROE, lower levered companies with earnings stability.

E.T.F.'s
BUY
A dividend-paying ETF with a low MER It charges only around 35 basis points and is low-beta. Low-ish returns are offset by a good 4% dividend.
E.T.F.'s
PAST TOP PICK

(A Top Pick May 2/16. Up 17%.) Has used this as an income surrogate where some people do not want to sell their principal and just want dividend income. This is ultimately Canadian equities and are going to need to have some volatility. Has significantly lightened his position in this.

E.T.F.'s
PAST TOP PICK

(A Top Pick May 2/16. Up 19%.) A broadly diversified way of getting Canadian dividends. He doesn’t believe you should use dividends as an income investment, but this is for those people who are looking for dividends.

E.T.F.'s
PAST TOP PICK

(A Top Pick Feb 26/16. Up 35.01%.) This company’s costs are low. A situation where he thought that for people who are relatively conservative, it is a good ETF that has gone up consistently and steadily in the past year. Dividend paying stocks are really a good way to screen for value. You are basically getting a value play on the Canadian large cap stock market. Still a buy.
