Q: Hi Guys
will the default level not go through the roof on all these Corporate Bonds in the next few years when they have to re issue debt at much higher levels ? and wont a recession really contribute to high bankruptcies.
What kind of a correction in this ETF can we expect, something along the lines of 30 %, Algonquin Power was sure hit hard with higher floating rates.
Thanks Gord

Q: I’m looking to diversify a small portfolio in a TFSA by purchasing ‘some’ ETF’s with reasonable distributions and not too much risk to capital, the idea being that this is a growing ‘rainy day fund’. The most attractive ones, to me, involve at least some U.S. investments. I’m sure that the first thing you would say is that you are not tax experts. With that said, do you think that XHY’s income would be subject to the U.S. Witholding tax? And following that do you know of any online sources that list the tax implications of specific ETF’s re. Withholding tax? The most that ETF providers might say on their sites is that an ETF is TFSA/RSP eligible
I recognize that the tax does not rule out the utility of an investment. When would you ignore its’ presence for an investment? A long-winded question.
