Although technology can have periods of underperformance compared to the broader market, the long-term performance for technology has trended much better than the S&P 500.
For a bit of perspective, think of some of the biggest companies in the world today and many are tech firms.
CPSE ETF (Central public sector enterprises ETF) is the new ETF launched by government which is comprised for 10 Bluechip PSU companies.
Its objective is to raise money from public & invest in the shares of PSU companies which are part of this ETF. Initially, the government can disinvest a maximum of 3% stake in each of the 10 companies in the CPSE ETF. The scheme, to be managed by Goldman Sachs Asset Management Company, was approved by the CCEA in May last year. Investments by first time equity investors in the scheme will be eligible for tax benefit under the Rajiv Gandhi Equity Savings Scheme, 2013. Normally investors should invest in diversified funds so that there is no concentrated exposure to similar companies & risks.
But CPSE ETF is strange thematic fund which is based on promoter (PSU companies) irrespective of which sector it is.
Due to politically-motivated decisions in the last few years, PSU sector is not performing well. As this fund is highly concentrated and PSU’s careless approach towards minority shareholders, Retail investors should avoid this PSU ETF. On 18th March, the ETF had received bids worth Rs 835 crore from 7  anchor investors, including SBI, LIC, Bharti Axa Life, GIC, National Insurance Company, The New India Assurance and United India Insurance.
As per news sites, on 19th March, there was strong retail response and as much as Rs 1,000 crore has been collected. CPSE ETF Oversubscribed with bids over Rs 4,000 crore.  FIIs placed bids worth Rs 750 crore, while anchor investors Bharti Axa Life Insurance, General Insurance, Life Insurance, National Insurance, New Indian Assurance, United India Insurance and State Bank of India have promised to invest Rs 835 crore.

Renaissance IPO ETF (IPO) was established in October of 2013, which makes it younger in terms of market age than some its top holdings, which include Twitter (TWTR) and Zoetis Inc (ZTS). My take on the Renaissance IPO ETF is that it’s history is too brief to get a full grasp on its potential benefits.
I would still take a wait-and-see perspective on this fund, however, given its relatively short life.

In my investment advisory practice, I typically use ETFs instead of mutual funds within a client’s investment portfolio.


While ETFs are increasing in popularity, I have noticed investors don’t always know the benefits of ETFs over mutual funds. The best way to explain ETFs is to compare them with a traditional index mutual fund — like the Vanguard S&P 500 Index Fund (“VFINX”). Stock and bond market indices are used to construct index mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) whose portfolios mirror the components of the index. Since indices are imaginary portfolios, firms (such as Vanguard, Fidelity, iShares and others) create investment products that aim to replicate specific indices. Like an index mutual fund, ETFs seek to replicate a specific index, such as the S&P 500 Index. ETFs can provide numerous benefits for investors when they are creating and managing their investment portfolio. ETFs are similar to index mutual funds in that they are created to replicate an index or strategy, except that ETFs are listed, bought and sold on a stock exchange like the NYSE or American Stock Exchange. ETFs allow individuals to invest in a portfolio of securities that provide the same diversification benefits of mutual funds with the liquidity and trading flexibility of stocks. For example, when you purchase a mutual fund in the middle of the day, the actual price per mutual fund share is calculated at the end of the day. In other words, if you were worried about a deep, intraday decline in the stock market, ETFs allow you to sell your shares at anytime of the trading day. If you were to sell your mutual fund in the same scenario, the price you would receive is the end of day price — even if you sold your mutual fund before any steep declines that might have taken place during the trading day. Among financial advisors, ETFs have surged in popularity. The “2015 Trends in Investing Survey”, conducted by the Financial Planning Association, shows that 81 percent of advisors currently use or recommend ETFs to their clients. According to the study, which has been conducted by The Journal of Financial Planning and the FPA Research and Practice Institute since 2006 and surveys over 300 financial advisors, ETFs have grown in popularity from 40 percent in 2006 to 79 percent last year and 81 percent this year.
John is an active member of the National Association of Active Investment Managers and The Market Technicians Association. Exchange-traded funds (or ETFs) are capital market instruments that are designed to track an index, a commodity, or a basket of assets. Consumer staple ETFs provide exposure to companies that produce essentials, including food, beverages, tobacco, and household items. The Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLP) tracks the S&P Consumer Staples Select Sector Index. The First Trust Consumer Staples AlphaDEX Fund (FXG), using the StrataQuant Consumer Staples Index as its benchmark, selects stocks from the Russell 1000 Index. ETFs are an efficient way to gain diversified exposure to various sectors and broad markets. As on 28th Feb, its PE ratio was 9.8 as compared to around 17+ for Nifty and other broader indices. Going by the logic that depressed market prices are the best time to invest, investors with high risk-appetite can possibly consider investing in CPSE ETF NFO. There are currently 300+ comments raised in last few months, for which I need to send the response.


However, some mutual funds and ETFs give investors entry to new issues like the Alibaba IPO. Roth is the founder of Wealth Logic, an hourly based financial planning and investment advisory firm that advises clients with portfolios ranging from $10,000 to over $50 million. In the case of financial markets, an index is an imaginary portfolio of securities representing a particular market or a portion of it. He has written numerous articles on investment management strategies and his advice has appeared in national publications. The above chart shows the exposure of some of the consumer staples ETFs to beverage companies, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. And now, while the Sensex and Nifty have returned to their all-time high levels of Jan 2008, BSE PSU index is still at only 5900 levels vis-a-vis Jan 2008 peak of 11,200. Strategically, in the long term, these are companies with a terrible promoter, which has never cared for minority shareholders.
The author of How a Second Grader Beats Wall Street, Roth teaches investments and behavioral finance at the University of Denver and is a frequent speaker. Each index has its own calculation methodology and is usually expressed in terms of a change from a base value. There are many consumer staples sector ETFs that help investors access stocks in the soft drink industry. Coca-Cola and PepsiCo are the dominant companies in the soft drink industry and together, hold 70% of the US carbonated soft drink market share.
Monster Beverage Corporation (MNST), a leading energy drinks maker, features in the top ten holdings of the FXG.

In March, assets of ETFs and ETPs (exchange-traded products) in the United States reached a new record high of $1.73 trillion.
1: Going Big on AlibabaFor the last few months, we've spent a lot of time talking about the blockbuster potential of Alibaba's initial public offering (IPO). Alibaba is the largest e-commerce company in China, and its revenues dwarf many of the top U.S. The document officially lists the IPO as a $1 billion deal, but that number is just a placeholder. Most analysts expect Alibaba to raise more than $15 billion through the IPO, and some optimistic views have that number closer to $20 billion. The company just reported a 305% increase in revenues year over year – and Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald thinks it still has a lot of room to grow.
