The caller requested suggestions for higher dividend ETF. There's a number of ways to play it. Go to an ETF website to see which ETF fits your profile. Covered calls provide higher dividends.

Covered calls in ZWC give you a boost in the distribution. If market continues to go higher, you're better off owning the underlying securities. Consider XEI instead, no covered call. Owns the securities outright, and so you won't get as high a dividend, but you might get more performance. In last 6 months, XEI returned17-18%, whereas ZWC returned 10.68%.

As good as VDY or ZDV. They all suffer from the same sector exposure, with large exposure to financials. With low interest rates, there's risk to owning financial services companies. Think twice about any overexposure to financials.

Provides a good opportunity for investors who want strong dividend income with established Canadian companies, but don't want a lot of risk. Top holdings are in pipelines, banks, utilities and telecoms. Still down 14% YTD, so represents a good buying opportunity. High quality companies. Low MER. Yield is 5.64%.

Dividend cut. The timing of the dividend was not in line with the quarterly dividend payouts of the underlying securities. There are also many companies that have reduced or suspended dividends because of covid. Overall, dividend expectations have come down.

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.

VDY vs XEI ETF? VDY and XEI is very similar and their prices track closely. VDY tends to hold higher financial sector exposure, where yields are generally higher. Whereas XEI holds the highest yield payers on the composite Index. He also likes XDIV which has the lowest MER (0.11%). It holds "quality" holdings, using an algorithm to pick higher ROE, lower levered companies with earnings stability.

He loves great dividend paying companies. You have to think about after tax. In cash accounts you want to overweight Canada but think much more international in retirement accounts. The question is when a 30-50% correction is coming. Don't sell when you should be buying. He rather reinvests in the ETF on dips rather than using a Drip.

(A Top Pick Jun 13/18, Up 1%) Ended up selling this a few months ago to buy more U.S. based stocks. This stands out because it's not heavily weighted on banks and energy like other Canadian broad based funds.

CDZ-T vs. XEI-T. CDZ-T screen for companies that have increased their dividends over the last 5 years. XEI-T just screens for high dividend payers. There is a risk that the dividend could be too high and the company can't keep paying it out. The XEI-T is more volatile.

A very good holding at 10-15% in a portfolio. XEI creates healthy cash flow, given the dividends flowing consistently.

He has held it in the past, but he sold it because he is not optimistic on the TSX in general. Government policy is restricting business in Canada he feels. He likes the tech sector, but does not see upside in the higher yield sectors.
