Investor Insights

This summary was created by AI, based on 4 opinions in the last 12 months.

Experts have varying opinions on the Healthcare Leaders Income ETF. While some have sold their position due to flatlining performance, others see potential for growth due to the healthcare sector's lagging market performance and the demand for healthcare from an aging population. The ETF's covered call strategy adds to its yield, making it a good option for investors. However, its growth may be somewhat restrained by the covered call structure. Overall, bullish sentiment on the healthcare sector's demographics is prevalent.

The Harvest covered call ETFs start well, but then flatline. So, he has sold all his Harvest ETFs.

TOP PICK

Healthcare sector lagging in the market, and is due for an increase in value. Very large companies with tailwind in aging population/demand for healthcare. Covered call strategy adds to yield. Good option for investors going forward.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick May 19/22, Up 6%)

It was strictly a yield play when interest rates were so low. He has only a small position. Growth in the ETF can be somewhat restrained by the covered call structure. It's a tradeoff between yield and growth. He's still bullish on the healthcare sector, the demographics are beautiful.

E.T.F.'s
BUY

Very good for healthcare exposure.
Actively managed with good performance.
High dividend yield (~10%).
Good for long term investors.

E.T.F.'s
DON'T BUY
Covered call. Equal weight basket of mainly 20 US healthcare names. Yield is 8.5%. MER of 99 bps, not as cheap as some of the others. He prefers, and owns, IXJ. IXJ is a basket of global healthcare names, with only a 40 bps MER.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
It's a covered call US healthcare ETF. HC is a growth sector. HHL pays over an 8% dividend, so it's very attractive. The one-year chart shows little growth, so you buy this for the yield. Tailwind: the baby boomers are getting older, and there's a huge backlog of surgeries built up during Covid. Plus immigration. HC is definitely a growth area.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
Good ETF for healthcare exposure (USA and international). Dividend does not qualify for Canadian divided tax credit. Look into tax treatment for each situation.

BUY
Allan Tong’s Discover Picks Among the caveats here is that HHL doesn't offer much growth. HHL is currently trading 30 cents above its 2022 low of $7.55, but its high is only $9.05. If you buy at current levels, add the dividend and subtract the MER, you're collecting a 13.5% return over a year. Not bad in these volatile times.

It is a very large cap fund. Does some covered writing which gives away some upside. Whether you buy or not depends on your view of the health care space. It is 40% pharmaceuticals, 19% health care supplies, 15% health care services.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
Believes healthcare sector is good for investors looking for yield (demand not going away). Not a growth story, but will provide stability.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
Interesting company due to strong yield. Main issue is not as strong of growth as other stocks. Return has been strong regardless. Good for investors looking for income, but not growth.
E.T.F.'s
BUY

Invests in healthcare issuers, a space he likes. Healthcare offers growth and defence and does well in late cycles and recessions. Pays enhanced dividends, too, with options totalling 8.7% dividends. The MER is around 1%, which is a little high. Covered calls do well in flat or down markets. Covered calls are also very tax efficient.

HHL-T vs ZEB-T Canadian banks good long-term investment. European banks good as well. Canada doesn't have much exposure to healthcare stocks but they're going to be part of the future. HHL could be a way to play that. Have to think diversified. Good to make room for both of them in your portfolio.

E.T.F.'s
TOP PICK
Likes the US healthcare industry, as all the aging baby boomers are entering high medical cost years. Covid delayed a lot of elective surgeries, creating a backlog. The yield on this ETF is extraordinary. He's trying this for his yield-oriented investors to make up for abysmal fixed income returns.
E.T.F.'s
COMMENT
Hedged, unhedged, and USD versions. 20 large-cap US healthcare stocks, with a covered call strategy. Dividend comes from underlying securities plus covered calls. Because volatility is up so much, he's writing fewer calls to generate the same cashflow. He doesn't expect any changes to the distribution.
