Best ETFs to Own for 2015: Each week our experts dish out the latest profit plays and asset-protection moves for our Money Morning Members – all for free.
Today we want to do something different. Rather than provide a roundup of last week's stock picks, we're going to focus on 10 exchange-traded funds (ETFs) our experts like right now.
They are among the best low-cost ways for you to profit from next year's top trends.
"The great thing about ETFs is that you get a lot of potential upside while also greatly diversifying away your risk," Money Morning Defense & Tech Specialist Michael A. Robinson, a 30-year tech market veteran, said Dec. 11.
That's one reason ETF investment is booming now. On Dec. 4, MarketWatch reported U.S. ETF assets now approach a record $2 trillion, up from $1.64 trillion in January. According to a January forecast by ETF.com – a publication that correctly predicted ETF assets would hit $2 trillion by 2014's end – ETF assets will grow eightfold by 2028.
Robinson likes five tech ETF picks for 2015 – three of which he thinks will double over the next three years. Another targets the explosive growth in Chinese e-commerce. In 2012, the country reached $298 billion in online-shopping spending, easily surpassing U.S. sales of $263 billion.
Money Morning Executive Editor Bill Patalon offered another high-octane tech ETF, with a twist – it targets one of the fastest-rising tech markets in Asia.
We also have three currency ETFs and one commodity pick that lets investors own physical silver without a high premium.
