A basket of REITs, nothing wrong with it. Issues to think about include rates increasing, which will affect highly levered companies, like real estate. A headwind for all REITs. If you’re OK with that, then real estate should be a 5-8% part of your portfolio.

Good idea to add? Getting monthly dividend income plus income off the option premium. Buying this for the cash flow. This particular product will suffer in a higher interest rate environment. Don’t add now. Instead, buy ZWB, add it to ZWU, and together that’s your portfolio.

Good time to buy? You can’t time the markets. This particular product is 60 of the biggest TSX companies, and a cross-section of the industries. Should be a core holding and just hold on to it.

Good way to diversify outside Canada? Nice yield, but value will go down as interest rates go up, much like bonds. With dollar cost averaging over the next year, you might be OK.

(A Top Pick Dec 18/17, Down 2%) Thinks it will do quite well next year. There’s been a rotation out of tech into value, which is where you find financials.
