Today I’m going to show you my top three “foundational ETFs.”
I call them that because they should be the foundation of your portfolio.
Most people build their foundation wrong. They use individual stocks and benchmark indices like the Invesco QQQ Trust (NASDAQ: QQQ).
Those are nice… but we’re chasing the alpha.
“Alpha” is a trading term that describes an investment’s ability to beat the market. It is often used to refer to “excess profits.”
If you’re sticking to the benchmarks like the QQQ, you’ll never outperform the S&P 500 or the Nasdaq.
Not to mention, we’re entering the second half of the year, and by now your portfolio should be considerably ahead of the overall market.
But if it’s not, don’t worry because there’s plenty of time for you to come out on top.
We’re going to use my top three foundational ETFs to do it.
Buy these three ETFs right now to get alpha profits…
CJ’s Alpha ETF #1:iShares Global Clean Energy ETF (NASDAQ: ICLN)ICLN
is an ETF I talk about a lot
It covers a very broad spectrum of the clear energy sector including technology, production, REITs, etc.
Right now, shares are down 21.4% year-to-date. Compare that to the S&P 500, which is up 16%.
But there’s a good reason why now is the time to invest in this new-age technology sector.
Make sure to watch today’s video at the bottom of this article for the full breakdown.
CJ’s Alpha ETF #2:iShares U.S. Real Estate ETF (NYSE: IYR)
This is another ETF I mention frequently.
It’s also a very broad-spectrum ETF that we’ll be using to get alpha.
This ETF provides us exposure to a variety of real estate, including shopping malls, nursing homes, office centers, etc.
Shares are up 23% year-to-date and 12 month returns are up 36%.
IYR is a strong performer with fantastic trends in place and it’s taking off once again.
You could also leverage it with a call option.
I’m looking at the January 21, 2022 $105 call ticker symbol at $5.60.
I break down this particular trade in today’s video as well.
CJ’s Alpha ETF #3:iShares MSCI USA Min Vol Factor ETF (BATS: USMV)USMV
is one of those ETFs that most people don’t know about.
But professional traders use it frequently when things get tight, like they are right now, because it helps protect your portfolio from volatility.
The ETF is on a great uptrend and we have an opportunity to capitalize on it.
