    $SPX Futures

    Sorry for the early warning by one trading day, futures started to fall at the closing on Thursday. Misread my indicators, there still was room to go up.

    Your querry from yesterday. I copied & pasted

    Not sure if you saw it or already own the stocks discussed but I linked this 2 1/2 year old video 2 weeks ago. I agree with the originator over his common sense “Canadian Essentials” for long term core holds. I would add REIT CAR.UN to the essentials.
    You and others might also find this video which originated on Friday interesting for a low risk REIT trade or long term hold.

    Most, 25% to 30% selloff, followed by 15% to 20% rebound, so it’s not “easy” to do, knowing this.

    If this group goes sideways from here, divvys will make you whole in 2 years, +/-, give or take. But they will go up, down , or sideways, during the next 2 years. Nobody knows.

    Just wondering if SDY “would have had” similar performance.

    current yield 2.78% . YTD return -26.3%

  8. Rol Lew Says:

    Yield = 29.3% . YTD – 8.00 to 4.01 = 50%
    But they will go up, down , or sideways, during the next 2 years. Nobody knows.

    # 6 Muntaxir
    I went through that video.
    Just want to know why does he have
    2 railroads
    2 pipelines
    3 banks
    2/3 utilities?
    Do they not all trade about the same way?

  10. JP/BC Says:

    Re: #6 Thanks Muntazir.

  11. Bernie Says:


    Re: #9
    In his opinion those 10 have the greatest staying power of all Canadian dividend payers. They’re meant for long term growth and income not for trading.

  12. Bernie Says:


    Further to your query. I left a word out in my second sentence in #11. It should have read “They’re meant for long term growth and income holds not for trading”.

    I also didn’t directly answer your question as to why 2 to 3 companies in each sector. Yes, they may trade the same way in a mutual fund or ETF but each of the 10 serves a different part of the country and the globe. For an investor invested for the dividend safety is paramount. The more quality dividend growth companies in ones basket the greater the safety of the dividend. Why not own the best and disregard the rest? You don’t get this with a fund nor can you control what they hold. Yes there are several ETFs in Canada which hold many or all of these 10 but they also hold several duds which drag down the overall performance. Show me a low cost ETF which holds and mirrors my stock portfolio and I’ll gladly toss my stocks for the ETF. Hope this answers your question more clearly and directly. If not, give me a shout back.

    Hello Bernie
    Thanks for taking the time to explain all this to me. Much appreciated.
    Take care and stay safe everyone.
