  • 16 ETFs' Correlation With SPY, And 6 ETFs to Control Risk [View article]
    I think this is a good enough balanced approach, as long as you are aware that some ETFs such as FAS and FAZ, etc. are 3x leveraged and are for short term purpose only.

  • 5 Rules for Choosing High-Yield, Low-Volatility Income ETFs [View article]
    I used to download raw data from finance.yahoo.com/ and calculate it using Excel: enter a ticker to “Get Quotes”, then in the left hand site, click “Historical Prices”, and select day range to get daily data or “dividends only”, then “Download to Spreadsheet”. There are quite a few powerful financial functions in Excel you can use, such as CORREL to calculate correlation. I usually measure yield consistency from ETF’s Inception Date, but pay special attention to last 3 years yield.

    However, in this article, I used the shortcut: those calculations and charts are already in ETFreplay.com

  • 22 High-Yield Large-Cap Stocks With PE/G Ratio Less Than 1.5 [View article]
    Agree. This seems to only apply for companies you already owned. For example, Du Pont (DD) 5 Year Average Dividend Yield was 4.3% while current yield is 3.2%. It means either its stock price increased, or dividend decreased. Either way, I might sell it when I review my portfolio.

  • Five Criteria to Select High Dividend Equity ETFs [View article]
    Data is all from public available free websites. For example, 12-month-yield, net assets, P/E, expense ratio, 52-week-high and low are all easily available from finance.yahoo.com/, even though they might be delayed. I also go to ETF families’ websites, such as iShares.com, to get more accurate, up-to-date data. Details dividend history can be obtained from Yahoo Finance’s Historical Prices section; 50/200 day MA is from its Basic Tech. Analysis section.

  • 3 Fixed Income ETFs for the Conservative Investor [View article]
    Sorry for confusing. The 3 ETFs are AGG, BND and TIP. If you want more aggressive, then take XBB but it is in Canadian dollar.

    Yes, I should use SPY instead of IVV for comparison, even though IVV is the 5th largest ETF. The only reason I use IVV is I was in iShare website and there is much more info for IVV than SPY.

  • Relatively Safe Dividend Aristocrats: 15 Equities and 8 ETFs [View article]
    Please note this list is solely based on The S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats, which must have increased their dividends every year for at least 25 consecutive years. There are lots of other sound companies not meet this strict “25-year” criteria but it doesn’t mean they are not safe. On the other hand, even blue chip companies in Dividend Aristocrats list could cut dividends too. The good example is GE.

    You can download the daily VIX data from finance.yahoo.com/q/hp..., then calculate correl with SPY using Excel's CORREL function. For example, 5 year correl is -0.64.

    You can get short time correlation ( 6 months, 1 year, etc) from SPDR site at www.sectorspdr.com/cor.../. IMHO, short periods of time data is to be used for short term forecast , such as momentum.

  • Fortinet IPO: Joining the Hot Network Security Sector [View article]
    Correction: "Cisco (CSCO) is still the dominant vendor with a market share of 28%, even though its share of the market dropped a staggering 22% year-over-year."

    According to Cisco, the “22%” drop is not in market share, but in the year-over-year shipment value. Year-over-year % of "market share" goes from 25.4% to 17.9%, a 7.5% drop.

  • China’s Online Gaming Market Looks Attractive [View article]
    I usually don’t comment on individual stock, because it will be unfair for my paid clients.

  • China’s Online Gaming Market Looks Attractive [View article]
    I don’t think so. China’s e-gaming companies are too small to be included in any US major tech ETFs. PGJ might have some. But I believe e-gaming stocks are more related to tech ETFs than generally China ETFs. You might check China Technology ETF (CQQQ), the first U.S.-listed ETF to focus on the Chinese technology sector, but it is too small and too new.
