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.
