Q: Good morning,

With demand continuing to outpace the supply and availability of semi conductors around the world with no end in sight, would this be good time to add a small position of a Semi Conductor ETF in my US$ Non Registered portfolio as part of my overall Technology sector weighing and if so, which of the two ETFs (XSD and SMH) would you recommend?
Thank you for your thoughts on this.
