Harvest is pretty new to ETF space. Takes the best known companies and adds covered call. Problem is that covered calls will most always be outperformed by the companies themselves. Covered calls are great for generating tax-efficient income, but not growth.

Good time to buy? Look at what else you have in your portfolio. Low cost. Very basic, good replication of TSX 60. 30% financials, 20% energy, 20% base metals. Always has XIU in his portfolios. Core holding.

Keep holding? Likes it for the income. Not a bank ETF, it’s across the board high yielders. It has underperformed, because it’s a covered call. If an investor wants US banks, CAD hedged, look at ZUB or US financials.

(A Top Pick August 8/17, Up 8%) This holds what’s left over from the XIU 60. Wanted to get into some smaller stuff to get better diversification, and focus on this rather than the broader-based indices.

(A Top Pick August 8/17, Up 11%) Goes further down into the small caps. Better diversification from the traditional major Canadian sectors.
