What is an ETF? The short answer is that it's a security that trades like a stock, has the diversification of a fund, and is tax-friendly.

On Sunday, CBS's "60 Minutes" examined the Sony hack from November 2014. The segment detailed just how ill-prepared most Americans and corporations are for cyberattacks.

The interviews also underscored one of our favorite ETF trading trends of 2014: cybersecurity ETFs.

"The money spent on cyber defense represents one of the highest profit potentials of anything I've encountered," Money Morning's Small-Cap Investing Specialist Sid Riggs said. "And the growth numbers spotlight not just one company but an entire sector that will have the wind at its back for the rest of our investing lifetimes."

The potential of solar power has been touted for years, yet it has always come with major limitations. The costs of producing solar power have outweighed the benefits for many power companies.

But that's changing. Solar power has reached a tipping point, and it's creating a massive profit opportunity for one solar ETF.

Over the last five months, the Russell 2000 has gained 20%. In the same time, the Dow has gained just 9.6%. The S&P 500 is up 10.5% in that time.

Natural gas prices have dipped in 2015. They're trading at $2.71 per million BTUs as of March 3, for a drop of more than 22% from their December price of $3.50 per million BTUs.

But Money Morning's Global Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says prices are headed higher in 2015.
