My Three Red-Hot MoneyShow ETFs

This week certainly got started in unusual fashion for me, as I was nearly thrown out of bed on Sunday by the force of a 6.0 earthquake that rocked the Napa Valley. I was staying in that beautiful part of the country for the annual San Francisco MoneyShow, and this year Mother Nature made it quite memorable.

Being part of yet another earthquake (I’ve been through many in my life, living in Southern California) reminded me that you need to be prepared for natural disasters. Of course, you also have to be prepared for financial disasters, too, and knowing what’s happening in the markets right now is the first step to preparedness.

Now, since our last Weekly ETF Report, there hasn’t been much of a sense of disaster in the markets. In fact, it’s been quite the opposite, which actually is a worry in itself. Stocks powered higher, with U.S. stocks leading the global markets to new highs. The S&P 500 now trades at the psychologically significant 2,000 level, a clear indication that the fear factor in stocks just isn’t anywhere to be found.

While the gains in the U.S. market have been strong of late, the U.S. market is not one of my favorites for new money. In fact, during last week’s MoneyShow, I told attendees at one of my seminars about three exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that I really like right now.

So, if you didn’t have a chance to attend the MoneyShow, no problem. I am going to present three red-hot MoneyShow ETFs for you to check out right now.

Exclusive  Invest in Gold to Profit amidst Bear Market

WisdomTree Emerging Markets Small Cap Dividend ETF

This fund holds stocks in the emerging markets, a segment that I am really fond of right now. More importantly, the WisdomTree Emerging Markets Small Cap Dividend ETF (DGS) only holds small-cap companies from specific emerging market countries, and its focus is mostly on Asia.

DGS_082714

One thing I also like about DGS is that despite the fact that it holds small-cap companies, the fund actually pays a pretty healthy dividend yield of 2.55%. In today’s environment, a 2.55% yield is nothing to sneer at. Moreover, DGS has seen a near-10% gain over the past six months, and the fund now trades above both the 50- and 200-day moving averages.

Deutsche X-trackers Harvest CSI300 CHINA A

The second red-hot MoneyShow ETF I presented was the Deutsche X-trackers Harvest CSI300 China A Shares (ASHR). This is a fund that I really like, as it’s a way to get exposure to the undervalued China A shares market. These are stocks that haven’t been available easily to the investing public. But thanks to ETFs such as ASHR, foreign investors now can participate in this booming sector.

ASHR_082714

During the past three months, ASHR has surged some 12% and now trades well above its May low. I expect more gains in ASHR, and that’s why we currently recommend this fund to subscribers of my Successful ETF Investing advisory service.

YieldShares High Income ETF

The final fund I like here is geared toward income investors, and it’s the YieldShares High Income ETF (YYY). This fund actually holds a basket of closed-end funds, which feature high-yield investments that provide the dividend payout juice in YYY.

YYY_082714

How much yield? Well, how about a current yield of 8.91%? That’s the kind of performance you need if your goal is income generation, and that’s why we currently recommend YYY in our advisory service.

Your August ETF Snapshot: The Top China ETFs

As many of my readers and podcast listeners know, I have been very positive on emerging markets this year, having dedicated two monthly snapshots to ETFs in the space. This month, I’ve highlighted one of my favorite emerging market sub-sectors, China.

Indeed, the month of July proved to be a real breakout month for Chinese stocks, with the Shanghai Stock Exchange Composite Index surging nearly 7.5%. That’s outstanding on its own, but it is particularly telling considering the S&P 500 sank 1.51% in July.

Orwell on Arguments

“Several of them would have protested if they could have found the right arguments.”

― George Orwell, “Animal Farm”

The market keeps pushing to new highs, yet there are still plenty of good arguments in favor of the cautious approach here. And while I try to make sure you always approach your investing with caution, sometimes the right argument is just to embrace the trend and get your money positioned in the sectors most likely to continue to outperform.

Exclusive  Vanguard ETF Seeks Growth in Large-Cap Stocks
