Consumer Tech ETF For Emerging Markets

January 11, 2012

In addition to broad-based tech ETFs, investors might find it wise to seek exposure to funds targeting consumers in the developing world, as technology companies are turning their attention to products geared toward developing nations, according to an article on The Street.

The article highlights the following funds as potential winners in the future, with ECON leading the pack:

  • EGShares Emerging Markets Global Consumer ETF (NYSEArca: ECON)
  • Market Vectors Brazil Small Cap ETF (NYSEArca: BRF)
  • Guggenheim China Small Cap ETF (NYSEArca: HAO)


In the meantime, investors should keep an eye on funds like the PowerShares QQQ Trust (NasdaqGM: QQQ) of Nasdaq’s 100 biggest nonfinancial companies and the iShares Dow Jones U.S. Technology Sector Index Fund (NYSEArca: IYW).

The article appears as the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show is going on in Las Vegas this week.
