I’ve looked into many of the ishares ETF’s offered on the Canadian market (and some from the US market), and I was a bit surprised that their distributions were as low as they are.For this reason, I’m not sure that these ETFs would be so great as income vehicles. Have you come across any that are?Mind you, I did overlook some of the main indices ETFs, such as the “composite” ETFs that try to cover the whole market. I’m talking mainly about the sector ETFs – the ishares REIT, for example, pays next to nothing compared with the income you would have if you just invested directly in the REITs themselves. In that case, I ask myself, why would I want to hold that ETF then?
