Bond ETF’s? He can’t recommend any, because there is not a single one that he likes. This is because we are at an all-time low in interest rates, and he doesn’t like bond ETF’s. You might want to consider using a dividend ETF instead. It will be a little more volatile, but there is not a great deal of downside risk if you are buying now. He would recommend Vanguard FTSE Cdn High Dividend Yield (VDY-T).

A preferred share ETF with a good deal of 4% plus? A yield of 3.2% would be perfectly fine and he would rather have more diversification, so for that he would recommend this one. It will be probably as volatile as most. There will be some in it that will not have as great a yield, but it will have more names, and those 2 things will offset each other. This is low-cost and broad diversification. In terms of the kind of performance you are going to get, you will see that it did very well until the market had its selloff.

(Top Pick Nov 8/12, Up 22.21%) Still likes it. This not fixed income but given that dividends are currently higher than fixed income, it should do well. The dividend play has not run its course.
