XIT-T Shopify, CGI and Open Text are the biggest holdings in XIT-T. This is a great play on Canadian tech. He's owned the component stocks, but he prefers holding tech stocks internationally for the diversification, so he recommends SOXX-Q.

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.

Did very well coming off the December lows. He thinks it is overbought here. A trade agreement would help this sector. From a technical perspective he likes some of the individual names on the ETF.

Holds all the big semiconductors, but it's a concentrated space. This ETF equal-weights these semis, which is good. This is a good long-term hold. The big growth spurts in semis has passed, though, but this sector is worth holding onto. Charges 47 basis-points in their MER, which is fine, because you're keeping your investing costs below 1%.

Had a good run, but has been forming a top the past year. It may be time to get out here.
