(A trading vehicle or a Hold?) Feels ETF’s are more of a Hold than a Trade. This one has done quite well and has produced some pretty good yields. Compared to the rest of the market, it hasn’t done too badly. It has a Covered Call which essentially means that when you hold a portfolio of utilities, you also write Calls on them. The problem you might have is if we suddenly have a run on the utilities, which we are having right now. Your stocks then get called away causing you to miss the upside. He hasn’t been inclined to get into Covered Call ETF’s.

Banks have been under pressure because of Short selling in the US. We had a reasonable recovery in the latter part of 2015, and then it sold off again. Somehow US Shorts got the idea that our banks have lent a whole lot of money to the oil patch and are going to lose on a whole bunch of loans. This bank has less than 1% of its loans in the energy sector. This bank has a huge US operation. Dividend yield of 3.87%.
