(Past Top Pick on August 8, 2017, Up 25%) He's holding and adding to it. Includes big companies such as Shopify, and he expects the Canadian tech sector to perform well. There's more risk in this sector, but an investor is safe if it takes up 5% of a portfolio. And he's not excited about Canadian stocks in general now.

It's the prominent cannabis ETF, but the cannabis sector is all about consolidation and swapping paper. There are a lot of unknowns and nobody is making any money. Cannabis is a gamble and he avoids it.

This is about about covered calls in utilities, including a lot of American ones. Morgan Stanley is recommending some American utilities. True, rising interest rates pressure these stocks, but this ETF pays a dividend of 6.9%. This ETF will get beaten up a bit, but it's still good.

A past top pick that he's sticking with. It holds no Canadian pipelines, he jokes. Canada has some good tech companies like Shopify, CGI, Constellation, Blackberry and Open Text. This ETF gets away from the typical Canadian stocks (banks), so this offers diversification.

He holds a lot of this. ZWB puts the covererd call portion on only 50-60%, so you also get the growth in the bank stocks. The Canadian banks will perform decently.
