General Market Comment 

October 18, 2018

Market.  Last week there was a big jump in ETF trading volume during the selloff.  People were feeling quite fearful.  ETF was almost 50% of trading in the US, but stayed the same in Canada.  ETFs are traded on exchanges just like stocks and can even be shorted.  They can also be optioned.  ETFs can lend out their stock holding within their fund to short sellers and this can create a yield for an ETF when its holdings do not pay a yield.

BUY

He likes this dividend ETF.  There is no index that it tracks.  Its MER is on the low end.  An eligible dividend will pass right through to you so you may not want it in a sheltered account.  Consult your tax expert.

WEAK BUY

Most Canadians are very exposed to oil.  This is an interesting spin because it is the oil service companies and not the producers.  You can get broader exposure through others in Canada.

WEAK BUY

SCHD-US or SPHD-US.  He likes their ETFs, but they are not yet in Canada.  They are really cost competitive.  With dividend ETFs any cost savings really helps.  It is hard to say right now where these will go with what the market is doing.  You should look for something with a value screen.

BUY

He likes it and uses it in his model portfolios as a core allocation to emerging markets.  It is very competitively priced.  He sees a lot of long term potential in emerging markets.  It is very volatile, however.  You have to know your risk tolerance.

This is a way to play rising interest rates.  Banks generate profit with interest spreads.  This is a good tactical play.  It could be a good hedge.

It is a leveraged long play on the NASDAQ.  Anything with leverage deserves extreme caution.  It is FANGs on METH.  Active traders use these.

It is one of four in a series.  They are active ETFs.  He has been following these products closely.  VMO-T is every stock in the world held for momentum.  The factor exposure comes with some risk, however.

BUY

A US high dividend ETF.  It is available as XHD-T in Canada as a hedged wrapper.  It looks for companies with an economic moat.  It is a good product, the dividend is good and the performance has been okay.  The question is the currency exposure.  It may help you or hurt you.  XHD-T will insulate you from movements in the currency.
