Q: Apparently, there are 11 major sectors in the S&P (Global Industry Classification Standard). Could you please list one ETF to best represent EACH major sector of the S&P? For example, would IUIT best represent the entire Info Tech sector of the S&P? It seems the SPDR funds are much more specific than the 11 GICS sectors:
Information Technology
Health Care
Consumer Discretionary
Communication Services
Consumer Staples
Real Estate

Thank you very much.

Given the current market backdrop, if one was to take 100K and build an ETF portfolio for min 10 year timeframe, which sectors would you be comfortable buying into before year end and which ETFs would you choose to accomplish this.

Thanks for your help.

Q: I am looking for ETFs with reasonable dividends, safe (less fluctuation) and at the same time the ETF can have some potential upside if market does well. I could not think of a sector better than utilities. Any thoughts? Please let me know if you have a better sector/industry (including your recommended ETFs in that sector/industry).

What are your thoughts on these two (RNRG and XLU)?

A side question: How can I know my remaining credits for more questions?

Q: I hold a 5.9% position in ZWU in a registered account. I have surplus US cash in a non-registered account to put to work and was thinking of XLU which yields approx 3.4%. I realize this distribution will be treated as income by CRA [I am retired - low tax bracket] but it seems better than letting the funds just sit. If you could offer other suggestions I'd appreciate them. Thanks.....

Q: Hi there,

i am going into retirement and am looking at reviewing my holdings to generate a bit more income. I currently own XLU in my 401K but the dividend is only 3.1% while the underlying companies often have much higher Dividends. Is there an alternate ETF or would your recommend a basket of utilities and if so can you give me 2 or 3 names - i own BIP, ACQ in my canadian accounts but could hold them in my us as well.
