Q: I listed in descending order securities that under performed since their 2022 highs. Please rank the securities in order of the best chance to recover their losses when we get back to the risk on mode. Thank you

Q: In the past I owned ZUB or ZBK for exposure to the US Banks. I would like to go back to these ETF. But when I look at the top 10 holdings I see JPM and BAC, but not MS or GS . Are MS/GS not considered as banks for these Etf or are just a smaller percentage? Would you have another suggestion for this specific sector?

Would regional banking KRE be a better choice at the moment.
Or something like IYG, even if I would prefer a canadian Etf.
Thanks again.

Q: Hi, looking to adjust my financial sector exposure, currently holding SLF, V, JPM, GSY, and BAM. I hold ZBK, JPM and GSY at a low weighting in my portfolio and could top up any of these right now. Thinking of selling ZBK and buying more JPM for US financial exposure. Currently don't own any Cdn banks, except through broad Cdn ETF. Should I add more to my JPM position or buy one of the Cdn banks (was thinking of TD) or add to GSY? I see you added to BNS, quickly, why do you favor BNS over TD? Looking for growth 10+ yrs. Thanks!

Q: Tony Dwyer from Cannacord likes to refer to "banks and tanks" as good areas to be in when the economy eventually turns positive. I believe he's referring to the more cyclicals. Can you suggest both Cdn and US ETF's that would fit the bill. Thanks.

Q: Thanks for your great insight as we move through these uncertain times. U.S. Banks will be under pressure with the current virus and oil crisis taking it's toll. Some (or all) may need a bailout. What is your opinion on the risk going forward for U. S. banks, and are there U.S. Bank ETF's that trade in Cdn. $$'s on the TSX, that you feel are reasonably stable longer term, and offer the best way to play this sector at some point going forward. Thanks. Warren
