It mirrors the S&P 500, which has recently exploded. This ETF is close to its high. He feels the markets are a little overbought now, so wait till things calm, or right now buy a partial position. Warning: there could be a second wave and the US election is coming.

A small-cap Japan ETF? Vanguard offers cheap MERs and diversified ETFs, but US stocks are overbought. Look at EM, Europe, Japan, etc. instead. There's a risk of melt-up with US stocks, but not outside the U.S.

An interesting ETF that he hasn't looked at before. It's had a spectacular return in the last year. The nice thing about this is that its 10 year average is 16%. They base their weighting on market value so they increase the weighting when a stock does well. It's a strategy that could fail if the market falls.

Vanguard makes only good ETFs--cheap and does a good job tracking benchmarks. Everyone should invest something in the States. VFV has done well.

VEQT vs. VFV vs. XWD He prefers VEQT and XWD, because he'd rather be all-world than just the U.S. He likes diversification. VEQT is all-cap vs. XWD is large-cap, and he prefers all-cap. So, VQET is his top choice here.

Another S&P index ETF, also excellent. It depends on how you want to play the US market and what you think will happen to the US dollar. Hedge if you think the USD will hurt you. This is steady and good.

Fees are low. No problem with this. He caveat is that if you invest in something like this you have to buy it for the next 35 years and not open the statements. The other is that his is only US (even as the US market is already global - McDonalds has 60% of sales from international markets). This is market-weight meaning that the largest names will have a higher % skewing to a bit of momentum.

Basic Vanguard S&P 500. He prefers VV as it goes to 630 stocks. He still feels good about the US. He is not putting new clients money but he hasn't sold any US exposure.

This is pretty simple and straightfoward: it covers the S&P 500. There's no hedging in this. It comes down to how you look at the markets now. Himself, he really likes the S&P 500 as a place to invest in. The wild card are rising trade tensions. He believes there will be a resolution at some point. VFV charges only 8 basis points.

A Canadian ETF that buys the U.S. version, which is a slight advantage when it comes to paying fees. It's a good, cheap way to get exposure to U.S. stocks.

Sell this and Buy the hedged version? He just took off of his Canadian hedges today. The Cdn$ has had a strong run up, and there are built-in expectations by the Bank of Canada that the Cd$ is going to go higher. Thinks Bank of Canada has gotten a little ahead of itself and the inflation and growth forecasts for next year are a little too robust. He wouldn’t be worried about the Cdn$ going up further. If you want to be long the US market, you want to stay with the unhedged version.

S&P 500? There are at least a dozen ways to buy this in Canada. Four of the ETF’s each offer at least 2 of the versions. Also, you can get it currency hedged or unhedged. The vast majority of these ETF’s are very similar to one another. Most of them are very, very cheap. This one is among the lowest cost. A great way to get US Large Cap in an unhedged way.

Believes this is a Canadian hedged S&P exposure. This is going to be more popular right now. He is still a big fan of the US market. These types of hedged ETF’s are going to do well.

(A Top Pick Nov 5/14. Up 16.26%.) The whole reason this has done so well is because it is not hedged. The S&P 500 over this past year has actually lost money. Pretty much 100% of this gain is due to the currency exchange.

This is going to be a more targeted large cap sort of bias. Vanguard is starting to lower the costs on their products. It has a management fee 0.08 basis points. Crazy cheap.
