  • "The content is amazing. The speakers are amazing. You get everything you need to know to get online, and they teach you how to implement it. I secured five joint ventures while I was here. This is the best money you can possibly spend." - PJ McClure

How to Exploit the Stunning Power of ETFs to Power Your Portfolio
By John Nyaradi

Every stockbroker in America is desperately hoping you won't discover what I know.

And that is that Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) shower investors with benefits that mutual funds simply can't provide. They offer you virtually unlimited investment flexibility... and you can buy them without paying your stockbroker one penny in commissions.

ETFs have been around for more than 15 years. But although they've rapidly grown in popularity, most investors still don't understand how they can be used to supercharge their portfolios in both up and down markets.

In a nutshell, an ETF is a basket of stocks that represents a sector.

For instance, the iShares U.S. Sector Health Care ETF has major holdings in companies like Johnson & Johnson, Merck, Abbott Laboratories, Amgen, Bristol-Meyers, and Eli Lilly. With one transaction, you invest in a pool of securities, just like with a mutual fund, but the basket trades like an individual stock.

The Wall Street Journal has called ETFs "one of the hottest investment tools to emerge in recent years." And Money Magazine has said that "ETFs are one of the few financial products that actually make money for you instead of your broker."

There are more than 800 ETFs, with new ones opening every day -- and total assets invested in ETFs now top $800 billion!

ETFs offer you exposure to major indexes (like the Dow and S&P 500), or you can use them to invest in sectors like real estate, financials, bonds, commodities, foreign currencies, and even sub-indexes like solar, steel, or coal.

Plus, in recent years, "inverse" ETFs have been developed that give you the opportunity to make money when markets go down, while leveraged ETFs allow you to gain 2X and 3X exposure to various indexes and sectors.

You can even use ETFs in sophisticated options strategies.

How You Can Master Today's Tough Markets

With its wild swings and the worst bear market since The Great Depression, it's no secret that today's stock market has challenged investors.

But that doesn't mean you have to stick your money under the mattress.

You have other options.

Here are some recent real life examples from our Wall Street Sector Selector trading portfolios:

When the market was climbing in first quarter 2010, we triggered a "buy" signal on February 24 that lasted until March 22.

Our Standard Portfolio logged gains in ETFs like these:

EWW (iShares Mexico Index): +5.9%
XLY (SPDR Consumer Discretionary): +6.9%
XLI (SPDR Industrials): +6.8%

Then, on March 31, a "sell" signal fired and we and took up positions in ETFs that generated the following results:

PSQ (ProShares Short QQQQ): +7.7%
VXX (iPath S&P 500 VIX Short Term Futures): +50.3%
EFZ (ProShares Short MSCI EAFE - Europe, Africa, and Far East): +2.8%

During this same period, our 2X Leveraged Portfolio, focusing exclusively on leveraged ETFs, logged gains like +5.9% in EEV (ProShares Ultra Short Emerging Markets) while our Option Master Portfolio generated profits of +29.7% in less than three weeks and +10.8% in two trading days during the months of May and June.

Of course, not every trade is going to be a winner. And it takes discipline, and even courage, to compete successfully in today's cutthroat markets.

However, it's crystal clear that ETFs are extraordinarily powerful investment vehicles -- and they should be a major part of every investor's portfolio.

A Laser-Like Focus on Exchange Traded Funds

At Wall Street Sector Selector, we believe that ETFs are vastly superior to mutual funds, because:

  • ETFs are far more cost-efficient than mutual funds. A typical mutual fund charges 1% or more annually, while ETFs average in the 0.10% to 0.6% range. The fees are lower, so your return automatically goes up.

  • ETFs are far more tax-efficient than mutual funds. You only pay capital gains when you sell, unlike a mutual fund that is constantly rotating its underlying portfolio and giving your profits away in taxes.

  • ETFs are far more liquid than mutual funds. They have no minimum holding period, no early redemption fees, and they trade during the day (like stocks), so you can open or close your position at any time.

  • ETFs offer far more transparency than mutual funds. Anytime you want to know what your ETF is invested in, you can see its holdings -- instead of wondering what your mutual fund manager is doing because he doesn't have to report until the end of each quarter.

  • ETFs let you invest in any sector in the world, be it domestic energy, the stock market in China, or the European equivalent of the S&P 500.

Wherever opportunity lies, ETFs allow you to exploit it.

Add up all these benefits, and it's easy to see why we chose ETFs from top providers as the exclusive trading vehicle for Wall Street Sector Selector.

Everyday, we track more than 50 ETFs across more than 15 sectors.

Here's a sample of the funds we track:

Wouldn't You Love to Be In On That Conversation?

Imagine stepping into a room filled with half a dozen of today's most successful business owners. Michael Masterson is sitting on a couch in the center of this high-profile group. (They are some of his closest friends and business associates.)

Everyone appears to be simply chatting. But make no mistake... some of the hottest business deals, investments, and money-making strategies are being discussed. For example:

  • The latest, hidden profit opportunity that could generate over $28,000 in just a couple of weeks...

  • A real estate deal that could generate a 100% return (or more) within a few weeks...

  • The "Great Diamond Hoax," with the potential to return 15% to 40% ROI with a single transaction

And that's just a tiny taste of the kind of deals they're talking about.

Now, you can be right there with them...

The Language Perfectionist: Superfluous Words

By Don Hauptman

One of the basic principles of good writing is to omit unnecessary words. Conciseness beats verbosity. Consider these examples I recently encountered:

  • "[Author James] Patterson considers himself as an entertainer, not a man of letters."

The word as is dispensable here. Correct: "Patterson considers himself an entertainer...."

  • "But I can't recall of an instance when [newspaper] book sections disappeared and book coverage was folded into other sections where the coverage expanded." The word of adds nothing to this sentence and can be deep-sixed.

  • "Study Spanish for free with our online lessons, vocabulary games, and didactical contents developed by Spanish teachers."

There's no doubt that the use of for free is commonplace. (A Google search for the phrase generates half a billion matches!) But the expression is slangy and the preposition is superfluous. Correct: "Study Spanish free...." Some language gurus suggest that at no cost, for nothing, or without charge can work better, depending on the context.

Once acquired, colloquialisms such as those above become habitual and are difficult to extricate from one's vocabulary. In conversation, they may be forgivable. But make the effort to expunge them from your writing.
