Experts have cautioned investors about stretched valuations for the NASDAQ and recommended being cautious. They have also highlighted the higher expense ratio of 28 bps for HXQ-T, suggesting there are strategies with lower expense ratios available. The ETF holds big tech names like Amazon, Apple, and Tesla which have contributed to its positive performance. However, it is noted that only Microsoft has outperformed the market since 2000, indicating some limitations in HXQ-T's performance.

QQQ, Powershares
Trevor Rose’s Insights - Trevor’s most-liked answers from 5i Research

We do like HXQ and it is our top pick for a CAD ETF that tracks the NASDAQ-100. We also think XQQ is another good option although it is hedged. XQQU is the unhedged version but it is very new, small and charges a higher fee so we like HXQ better. HXQ is also a 'total return' fund that pays no distributions, and this can be efficient for taxes.

Investors have been rewarded, but valuations are stretched for the NASDAQ, so be careful. Higher expense ratio of 28 bps, there are strategies out there with lower expense. 


In CAD and USD, and charges an MER of 0.28%. Own this in a non-registered account. Holds the big tech names like Amazon, Apple and Tesla. HXQ has done well this year, but a caveat is that only Microsoft has outperformed the market since 2000.

HXQ vs. ZQQ, if tech continues to do well. Tech touches us in every sense and every part of what we do. Interest rates are on the rise, and growth stocks like tech tend to underperform in that environment. Stick with tried and true, like FB, GOOG, and MSFT. The BMO strategy is hedged. He prefers the unhedged version, HXQ, especially as the CAD is at the higher end of a 6-7 year range. Also, the HXQ is cheaper at 28 bps; whereas ZQQ is 39 bps. Greater tax efficiency with HXQ when you look at non-registered accounts. US dividends from these tech stocks are characterized as deferred capital gains, so for non-registered investors, that may be a compelling reason to go with HXQ.

vs. ZQQ ZQQ is CAD-hedged, so where do you think the CAD will move? HXQ is similar to ZQQ, but a cheaper MER at 0.28%. ZQQ has no hedge to CAD. He prefers HXQ, because it's cheaper and unhedged.


(Top Pick Dec 13/16, Up 8.02%) He has hung on past the end of the seasonal period by a month and is moving his stop up tighter and tighter.


This represents the NASDAQ 100, and NASDAQ stocks tend to perform well from mid December into January. Part of that is technology.
