BUY
Using cash to build a balanced portfolio in ETFs with a geographic spread. Make it 50/50, with half high-yield (which the caller already owns). He favours international stocks--which are not risky despite popular thinking. XEF is good for this international diversification. Remember that half the sales of S&P companies go aboard, including emerging markets. XEF holds big companies that have two-thirds of their sales in developing countries. So, you buy emerging companies indirectly and limit volatility.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
Core series ETFs from iShares are awesome to build portfolios. XEF is a good start, but also add exposure to Asia. Low-cost MER, too.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
XEC vs. XEF 50% of the world's GDP comes from emerging markets where you need to invest some capital. XEF is the rest of the developed world outside the U.S. He likes both, preferring them over the US market which he thinks has peaked. These ETFs are complimentary and don't overlap. They hold equities, to you bear equity risk.
E.T.F.'s
BUY

It is one of his core ETFs for international exposure. He likes the broad diversification and the low cost.

E.T.F.'s
DON'T BUY

XAW-T vs. XEF-T. XAW-T is an all world ETF with broader exposure. His favourite way to play international is good quality, high dividend paying stocks in Europe with a covered call overlay. ZWE-T is his choice.

E.T.F.'s
BUY

Is this a long term holding? Similar to iShares MSCI EAFE Index ETF (CAD-Hedged) (XIN-T) which is hedged. This ETF goes into some small caps where XIN-T doesn’t. He is comfortable with that for EAFE. He thinks there is nothing wrong with this one. He would buy it as a long term holding.

E.T.F.'s
HOLD

Sell this and Buy the hedged version? He just took off of his Canadian hedges today. The Cdn$ has had a strong run up, and there are built-in expectations by the Bank of Canada that the Cd$ is going to go higher. Thinks Bank of Canada has gotten a little ahead of itself and the inflation and growth forecasts for next year are a little too robust. He wouldn’t be worried about the Cdn$ going up further. If you want to be long the US market, you want to stay with the unhedged version.

E.T.F.'s
PAST TOP PICK

(A Top Pick Dec 16/16. Up 12.11%.) He would encourage people to start looking more seriously outside of North America, and the 1st stop is the EAFE index. This is essentially the equivalent of the S&P 500, every big brand name that you can think of outside of New York. He likes that this has less of a tech focus than the S&P 500.

E.T.F.'s
COMMENT

An international market ETF, and he likes it for diversification. A great idea for a lot of Canadians who have a home bias. It includes mid-cap and small-cap companies, but is not currency hedged. (See Top Picks.)

E.T.F.'s
TOP PICK

This is like the S&P 500 outside of North America. It is all the big famous companies around the world. What he likes is that there is going to be a surprise in 2017 on UP indexes. He expects a fair amount of investment flow to come from the US into foreign markets. Because there is a lot of bad news in this one, it is quite cheap compared to anything in North America.

E.T.F.'s
BUY

It is not hedged and he likes that. The MER is reduced to an attractive price. He prefers the emerging markets to the States. He likes to have adequate global diversification. It is very diversified.

E.T.F.'s
COMMENT

This is his primary MSCI EAFE holding. Very inexpensive and there is a lot of liquidity in it.
