COMMENT

ETF recommendation? There are a number of them out there. The ones he uses add diversification and are used primarily as a short term trading vehicle for him. He mostly uses SOXX, IGV and FDN.

Technology
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Jul 31/19, Down 5%) All the growth names have pulled back. Software stocks tend to be more defensive, so you can hold them during periods of stock weakness. Software is your new defensive play during the summer. July-November still has some seasonal runway, but the chart shows a head and shoulders pattern, so technically the trend is over.
Technology
HOLD

A great name. He likes their migration to a subscription basis. It has good pricing power and he personally uses their products all the time. They are the defacto standard. A little rich at today's value though. He would also consider the ETF IGV-A to help diversify some of the risk in the space.

Technology
COMMENT
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.
Technology
TOP PICK

July 31-Nov.8 is seasonality. It's outperformed the market by 4.2% in this period. It's trending higher and consistently. Software stocks are the new defensive stocks because they're adopting the subscription model, like Microsoft.

Technology
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick May 10/19, Up 3%) Software is the new staples, because it's going to the subscription model and will do well in upturns and downturns. Defensive. July 31-Nov.8 is seasonality. Summer is very good for this sector.
Technology
BUY

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.

Technology
COMMENT

Video game companies? When video game companies found the advantage to after sales revenues, he got interested. Gaming is a growth industry now. Now that membership revenues have been introduced, it has made earnings less predictable. This is a structural change in the industry, which will create some investor anxiety. He would prefer IGV -A as an ETF basket of gaming companies for now.

Technology
TOP PICK
Tends to be less volatile than higher beta areas of software. Revenues are growing. Holds Microsoft, Oracle, Salesforce. Optimal is July - November. Not in it yet, but the runway is coming up. Trend is still positive.
Technology
COMMENT
A big name in IGV-A, a software ETF he loves and is a core holding. CRM-N has sustainable 20% annual growth and it continues to have a strong reoccurring revenue steam. It may be expensive at 9 times forward sales, which could create volatility going forward.
Technology
DON'T BUY

An older ETF. It’s software, high growth, high margin business. Tremendous run this year up 25-30% YTD. Not wise after this move to be going in so specifically. If you want tech in the US you should look at ETF not so specific to software, an equally weighted tech ETF would be an interesting thing to look at such as RYT that Invesco has in the US. He tends to avoid IGV. Nothing wrong with this, but it’s a bit late. Not enough unknowns in these companies that will cause them to outperform going forward. You might want to buy a stock specifically rather than a group of others stocks that are pretty mature companies.
