A 75-year-old holding this. Hold no more than 10% of your portfolio in anything this volatile at this age. It's a fine ETF though.

Certain amount of risk because they're tech giants. With covered calls, you're always giving up some of the growth. You might be better off buying something that's broader based. But if you're willing to accept the risk, then go ahead.

He does not own this one. It is similar to his portfolio, investing in the largest 25 tech venders out of the US. No more than 25% of call options sold against them that allows a nice yield. It is good for early stage bull markets and will not do well in a bear market. This limits the price action to the upside.

The tech space has done very well the past 10 years, but Canadians have a tough time finding a robust tech stock that's not correlated to Canada. So he found this. Pays a good dividend, but is choppy when tech markets turn rough. Buy it now during the market downturn.

Very popular ETF. It uses a covered call to generate yields. Holds tech giants primarily in the U.S. A great high-yield way to get technology exposure. In his mind investing in technology is all about participating in future growth. Feels putting a covered-call overlay kinda defeats a bit of the purpose. Prefers plain-vanilla technology ETF.

Nothing wrong with it, though not fan of writing calls on things that has a lot of up-side. Finds the stock pricy since it's actively managed. Tends to prefer low cost ETFs.

Do a covered call in this space? He wouldn't do the covered call. Tech stocks are growth stocks, not income. He'd rather buy individual stocks to get the growth. He likes this sector, but not this ETF.

He's down on it. Yield must be around 8.4% now. Don't add new money to this...yet. Wait till the market bounces up.

It's done well, but his only question is, How does it compare to the S&P 500? This ETF is 90% IT and there's nothing wrong whit it, if you want to play this sector, though personally he's wary of the FANG stocks.

Most of what you receive from this ETF is capital gains. It is an interesting ETF- the largest 25 tech companies, equal weight with covered calls. Covered calls are better for stocks going sideways. He does not think this is a prudent investment for a retiree. Be careful here. The covered writes buffer on the downside a little.

A big holding of his. There's a sea change in businesses in how they're embracing technology that stretches beyond the big tech names, so this is a massive growth area. You can buy the hedged or unhedged version (he buys the hedged) and buy these big U.S. tech names without worrying about the Canadian dollar. They also do some covered calls. Pays over 5% yield.

Covered call currency hedged ETF. It is narrowly focused in the industrial sector. They write on 25% of the portfolio.

Invests in an equal weighted basket of big-name tech companies. The “covered call” side is not the major component, because they only write against 25% of the fund and the assets of the fund at any point in time. If you like big-name technology, this is fine. This is where he thinks a lot of the earnings are going to come from.

Techs in the US, the big 4 tech names (basically Internet services), had a fantastic 6 months in 2017 to date. There was a great deal of concentration in the FANG stocks that helped the S&P 500 for the 1st 6 months. In the back half of 2017, you are going to get a bit more breadth in the S&P 500, so he is not sure you are going to get the same kind of lift on this ETF, as you would by just going into the S&P 500.

Tech in the US have been an amazing play. This one overlays 75% of the portfolio with call options. This is not the way to get growth from technology stocks, but it is the way to get yield. If you need the yield it is fine.
