Facebook is the top holding and there are bearish calls (from Michael Levine). FDN has a different valuation method from other ETFs. It's actively managed, though he hasn't watched FDN in particular. First Trust ETFs do okay. He's not worried about it, though it may depend on FB's weighting; for instance, 30% would be a problem.

He likes it a lot. He loves Amazon, which has a 9% weighting in this. FANG is doing well because their fundmental businesses are doing so well. You'll be fine owning this. He doesn't see a tech bubble like 1999. There's room to run in tech.

(A Top Pick Jan 04/19, Up 17%) It was a low point when he recommended it. He switched out of this for VGT, a Vanguard IT ETF. It's more on the hardware than software side. He thinks there are other sections of tech other than internet that could grow this year.

How to take advantage of a recession? There has been a great run in the market. He would buy into an alternative offering that allows the manager to be long or short or to get an active manager. You need to be disciplined on your entry and exit levels. His minimum to get into his fund is $50k. He could suggest two ETFs: IGV-T and FTN-N. He thinks it is dangerous to get into a long only ETF at this stage of the cycle.

A tech ETF for an RRSP? There are three. SOXX for semi-conductors, the ammunition which drives tech around the world. IGV is a great way to get diversification in software. FDN is the internet index is extremely liquid and massive. These ETFs cover the three pillars that drive tech today. He uses these ETFs to offset volatility. When an ETF approach 5-7% of his price target, he sells a third off. Holding single stocks isn't as nimble. For example, he sold a lot of these ETFs in early-spring, then bought them back in the May swoon.

(A Top Pick Jul 03/18, Up 7%) Half of it are the FAANGs; half are dividend-paying small-caps. Both were badly hit in Q4 -2018, but the FAANGs have yet to recover fully. But if the market continues to rise, the FAANGs will recover. Hold onto FDN.

Should I buy the ETF or individual stocks? Unless that you are an expert you should buy the ETF. This one is fairly expensive. Other than that nothing wrong with this one.

This gives a diversified exposure to the four largest internet stocks with over 40% of the portfolio value dedicated to them. This gives narrow exposure to the big players.

Internet ETF. Analysts do not make consensus targets for ETFs. The average PE is no different from the overall NASDAQ. The trend is healthy. It is not cheap.
