VIG vs. VGG in a non-taxable account? And will the CAD go down? The USD won't go down, but he won't speculate on currencies' directions. It's impossible. But BIG is great. VGG is the Canadian one and you can buy it, but there's an extra cost with it. He prefers VIG, the USD one.

Is there a Canadian equivalent - Yes there is VDY, but you have to be careful as the Canadian market doesn't have the breath or the depth of the US market. But they are solid dividend payers.

(A Top Pick April 10/15. Up 2.27%.) This holds a number of big US companies that have a record of steadily increasing dividends. This is a good way to get into the US market on a conservative basis.

(A Top Pick Oct 10/14. Up .04%.) This hasn’t performed as well as he had anticipated. Once there is the 1st increase in US interest rates, he thinks dividend stocks will do better. Most of his investments in the US are through ETF’s. Thinks the Cdn$ will continue to be weak.

These are companies that grow their dividends, and in this case, he is showing a little bit of bias towards the US markets. This has a significant number of stocks. Their largest weightings are consumer goods, services, industrials and healthcare. Has a small dividend. A very conservative type of investment.

Dividend appreciation is a thing that is a little bit gimmicky, but it is broadly diversified, low cost and doing exactly what it is supposed to do. This can be used as a long-term hold.

He sees the US market as offering specific opportunities at specific times. The dividend appreciation is one that he has used extensively with his clients who want exposure. A very high quality company. Well diversified and quite a conservative portfolio. A good place to have a piece of the US market. Yield of 2.45%.

Doesn’t follow this one, but when you are looking at Vanguard you are looking at the leaders in the field of lower costs. Sees nothing wrong with getting this, but don’t forget you are going to be paying full income tax on the US dividends.

High yield is fixed income but correlates with equities. If they pullback, you get corrections there. It is high risk right now. If we get a correction, then high yield will correct 2/3rds of that. When we get dips, it is a good opportunity for people looking for yield.
