(A Top Pick March 23/11. Down 9.45%.) This one has done better than other oil products. Fairly expensive oil, combined with low interest rates is an environment for takeovers.

Markets for the past 75 days or so have been moving sideways. If you don't believe there is a great deal of direction going forward, utilities are good way of a) minimizing volatility and b) when you lay a covered call strategy on top of that, you minimize volatility even further. This is one of the most conservative ETF's you can get.

Dow Jones Indus. Avg. Hedge ETF. This uses a conservative US benchmark, but on top of that you are using covered calls making it even more conservative. You're probably giving up some upside.

Underlying holdings are low volatility by themselves. Better risk adjusted return because it has market levels of return with substantially below market levels of volatility. This is for people who think the market is a scary place.
