Q: Ishares US REAL ESTATE ETF (not in your data base)
can you comment on this ETF for a diversified real estate play. Do you view this as a decent entry point.
What's your view of starting a portfolio of these 5 ETFS with a 20% weighting in each, then rebalancing every year back to the original 20% weighting. Im hoping maintaining the 20% cash position will help smooth out the portfolio in these uncertain times, maybe it will outperform the more popular 60/40 portfolio.
thanks Gordie

Q: I bought some FNV last year and exited my position in April 2020 (too soon but still a double). I am thinking of returning to gold as I now have none (and feel uncomfortable with none).
a) Is this a decent time to return?
b) Should I return to FNV now that it has dropped back from its high?
c) Or should I choose one of GLD:US, IAU:US or SGOL:US and if so which do you prefer?
Thanks for your help.

Q: Hi group any idea why GLD and FNV are struggling in this market. They are both lagging the gold sector in general and are well off their 52 wk highs. Looks like I got the sector right but picked the wrong stocks would you sell them both and replace the with something else please recommend alternatives Thanks

Q: Hello Team
I am hearing different comments, and one from David Rosenberg in particular, suggesting it is quite possible to see a 60cent dollar in the not too distant future and I would appreciate your thoughts. Further to this personally I feel that the markets seem to be going through a period of "irrational exuberance" and personally I feel we are only at the beginning of what is to come in terms of a downturn in the Canadian economy. With this in mind, what would your thought be of changing some Canadian dollars in my accounts to US dollars for investment purposes. I would also consider using a US ETF such as GLD to play the rising gold stocks. Appreciate your thoughts

Q: Good Morning,
There has been a lot of talk about the value of owning gold in a portfolio recently. I was wondering if you could let me know how I can go about owning gold inside my TFSA? In addition, would now be a good time to buy gold, or would it be better to wait until markets rebound. In other words, is gold a better buy when markets are doing well.
