Covered calls, so you're giving up some growth. Good rate of return, but there must be some leverage in there somewhere. Nothing wrong with the ETF, but in healthcare he prefers to go straight on. Very attractive yield.

The down trend broke in October. Healthcare has a seasonality that ends at the end of December. The next resistance is $8.50 and then the $9 range. Stick with it but it will be bumpy over the next couple of months.

The healthcare sector is in line with aging demographics. A good ETF, but the covered call limits the upside. So, this isn't good if you are bullish health. Also, this ETF will miss opportunities in small caps. But overall, a good ETF.

Buy the US or Canada ETF? Aging demographics favour this ETF. Don't factor the Canadian election or any election when buying this. If you own the US ETF, then buy the Canadian one for geographic diversification.

Used to be a closed-end fund. Now a covered call on major U.S. Healthcare. Yield is around 8%. But similar to other covered calls, you are giving up up-side of the healthcare sector. Sacrificing growth for yield. A good dividend play.

He believes in healthcare as a secular play though this sector is a political hot potato. HC's seasonality is about to start, but you really need to hold this long term.

I hold HHL in US and Canadian 50/50. Should I cash out the American to buy only Canadian? And what if the Democrats win in 2020? Currency is complex in general. Better to hold half-hedged, half-non. Yes, there's some strenght in the CAD. But in a slowdown, the USD is the world currency and will respond well. Also, these companies are well-capitalized and a great place to hide in a slowdown. Owning is USD is better in a slowdown. If the Democrats win in 2020: It's a tough call who will win and what the winner will do to US healthcare.

The yield is extremely good. The problem is that there is not much movement on the upside. He prefer other things with upside potential. The Health Care sector is a good theme.

They find some of the best healthcare stocks and then write options to increase the returns. He likes what they are trying to do. The more volatility in the sector there is, the higher the option premium will be.

A yield of almost 9% and almost all a return of capital? There will be negative impacts on the US healthcare sector. The covered call strategy yields a return as a capital gain. He deferred the callers's question to the manager of the ETF. He thinks this is a good way to get yield in this sector if this is what you want.

Big marijuana components in the name. He thinks the mergers in the sector is going to be kind of a zero-sum game for the ETF. He would look into the individual names for potential targets in the smaller names.

No cannabis in this. It's 20 equal-weighted healthcare stocks, the biggest in the world, the mega-caps. Lately this has underperformed the S&P so beware as we head into a rate-sensitive market. It's more risky than your typical ETF.

Caller looking for a defensive holding. He loves what they are doing – an active approach to healthcare. They write covered calls and can generate capital gains. It should perform well in a downturn. Once we are at a low valuation and they are recovering you don’t want to be in this.

Popular. It has a covered call overlay so it's one of the more pricey ETFs at a 1.37% MER. They do quantitative screens on the healthcare companies they pick.
