BUY
Canadian Banks: Buy and write covered calls while electing dividends? Thinks dividends are reasonably safe. (Bank of Montreal (BMO-T) has questionable dividends of over 9.39%.) Options are trading at prices that have not been seen for many years so this is an excellent strategy for the next 3 to 6 months.

BUY
Reasonable strategy to Short US treasuries. Interest rates can’t go much lower.
E.T.F.'s
HOLD
Believes that dividend is intact so look at this as an income producing strategy. Also, there are now a lot of options outstanding on it, so you could write covered Calls on it if you wanted to increase your income. Not sure he would do this just yet.
