XUT is market cap, ZUT is equal weighted. ZUT gives you more exposure to smaller players. HOG gives you more pipeline and energy services business, which acts similarly to utilities. It also hedges you on the downside. Could be a compliment to the other utility ETFs.

He is good with utilities. They have now corrected with everything else. They are regulated and generally don’t have a huge growth profile. He would be nibbling if you like the safe, stable dividend.

XEI has a fair exposure to the overall business cycle with broad based holdings. You want to focus on areas of the market that have less impact from issues in the financial markets. He would opt more for a utility ETF (XUT) that is more of a regulated sector with a agreed return on capital and more likely to be sustained.

You want to be in utilities during volatilty--who knows how long it will last? While it happens be in utilities; seasonality is Feb. 26 - May 18. This holds above major moving averages and this has been outperforming markets the last few days.
Utilities can do well in March and April, and are holding up better than the wider market--you want to own an outperformer now. Fundamentals are not driving this, because production actually declined last year YOY. Rather, the high yields are attracting investors. This subsidizes your income. It's still above its 20-, 50- and 200-day moving averages. Still has positive momentum as people chase yield.

An ETF for utilities. A great defensive sector with amazing performance lately. XUT-T is good, but 60% is in the top 4 holdings (inculding Fortis and Algonquin); 4% yield and 55 basis point cost. ZUT-T is more diversified and equal-weight. ZWU is also equal weight but does covered calls to create extra income, which sells future income for gains today; yields 6%. Given the strong performance of utilities in the past year, covered calls have lagged.

Time to invest in the Utility Sector? The sector should do better than 2018 with the expectation of flat interest rates. If rates to up it will be negative for this space. He would prefer to own a select few strong companies, rather than a diluted ETF. The ETF yields about 4.6%.

Although you get pretty good yields of around 4%, interest rates are moving higher, and yields are moving higher on the 5 year and 10 year, which is going to have an effect on utility companies. Utility companies generally are not good dividend growers. If they can grow their dividends, they are going to be affected from a capital appreciation/capital depreciation standpoint on their prices. He is not a big fan of utilities at this point.


Half the names are really solid. A steady dividend. No harm done recently so maybe a good place to be.


There was a rally in bonds, so utilities would respond to something like that. Also, low interest rates have been a huge help. Their day in the sun is kind of over with. This has to do with sector rotation, and he would have a tendency to move on.


A lot of people are chasing yield but utilities are not in favour this time of year. Technicals are not favorable right now. Stay away from this and go toward the cyclicals. Get in in July.
