TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly We reiterate HTB as a TOP PICK. This low MER ETF tracks US 7-10 year Treasuries -- a safe haven during market down turns. Priced in Canadian dollars, this would likely add another kicker in a market down turn as we expect a flight to the US dollar safety at some point. We would buy this with a stop loss at $57.50, holding as insurance against a market downturn. Yield 0%
