Q: Greetings. In 2021, I took a small tax hit, to shift my "UN" stocks to my TFSA from my non registered... ostensibly to simplify my taxes. Just wondering if, going forward, you folks have heard whether HHL will lose their straight dividend status - or has it already? Thanks.

Q: Hi, I hiope that you had a nice holiday. I would like to add an ETF that provides a diversified health care focus. I am also desiring income / over growth. One such
ETF is HHL - Harvest Healthcare Leaders Income ETF. Questions:

1. Are there others that could be considered and if so how would you rank each, including HHL?

2. If I were to purchase HHL, which version should I consider HHL, HHL.B or HHL.U and why.

Thanks Len

Q: Good morning 5i,
I'd like to put some funds into healthcare for a what expect to be 3 to 5 years. Currently, HHL will provide around 8.6% per annum income, but capital gain potential seems limited. DHT.UN meanwhile is currently yielding 2.4% but the analysts I have access to appear optimistic for future share price growth.
I definitely like the HHL income (which I would reinvest in the name quarterly) but wonder if, in your opinion based on current available info, whether or not it would be overly risky to lock down some DHT.UN at current levels instead. I guess an earnings report or two from DHT.UN illustrating how 2021 has gone so far might be helpful in looking ahead, but I'm not aware of any ...?
Thanks for your thoughts.

Q: I own ZUH and XHC and am thinking of selling them to buy HHL for the big dividend that HHL pays (8.61%) . Is this a good idea? Or am I trading growth potential for dividends and could I actually be making a mistake?
