VC David Henderson has one word for you: water. Though not historically seen as a growth area, Henderson expects the strains of population growth, climate change, and emerging-markets industrialization to lead to heavy interest in both water infrastructure projects, and new technologies that can boost the availability of clean water. A few water ETFs: FIW, CGW, PHO, PIO.

    They've been saying that for 5+ years, and nothing.

     

    Just look at a 5 yr chart in VE as an examle.

    Hahahahaha...no more peak oil, so now its the peak WATER crisis. I sure wanna invest in something that falls freely from the sky every day or two. Of course, there isn't alot of water in the Arab countries...whaddaya say Imam...how about a barrel of oil for a barrel of oil? Fracking unbelievable!

    I somewhat agree with 198... Several years ago, looking for a budding sector and stock to get an early start, I compiled a lot of info re water stocks and etfs. Nada! I will set up a chart re these recommended ideas but I am not expecting an real bullish change in order to invest.

    Dominic Greene was early to the potable water thesis in 2008, but his investments were broken up by government intervention. I hope David Henderson has better luck!
