(Market Call Minute.) Not a great name to own if you think semiconductors are challenged. They have generating losses and he would prefer a more stable name.

(Market Call Minute.) Great business model in an environment where companies have a hard time raising capital. A palatable type of financing for a lot of companies.

This is a closed end fund, not an ETF. Good thing about a closed end fund is that it trades at a good discount but very illiquid so it may never trade at a premium or get close to its NAV. For an ETF of India, he would suggest Wisdom Tree India Earnings (EPI-N), which focuses on dividends. There is also PowerShares India ETF (PIN-N).

Based on the S&P/TSX preferred share index. While diversified. A nice way to get liquid exposure. Yield is probably in the 5.5%-6% area.

2X leveraged NYMX natural gas. If natural gas prices increased, this would give a leveraged exposure but on a daily basis. Good trades but only for short trading periods. Longer you hold it, the more off you are going to be because of daily re-leveraging. Natural gas is the most volatile asset class globally.
