  • Best Of Breed Contenders For Diversified REIT Exposure  [View article]
    Wondering what you think of Schwab's fundamental Global REIT fund - SFREX? Not seen too much coverage of this, but I like fundamental indexing conceptually and am interested in this one...

  • Open Letter To ETF Industry: Create A Better Dividend Growth Product  [View article]
    +1 on the idea of implementing such a list at Motif Investing. Anyone can basically "construct your own ETF" with up to 30 stocks, share it with everyone, and once constructed anyone can buy the basket for much cheaper than the commissions even the deepest discounters charge. Best of all, sans management fees. The work is all in keeping the index up to date, and each individual investor would need to do the rebalancing on their own (this is easy enough, it's one click for an investor to rebalance on whatever schedule they choose).

    I'm not yet an investor with Motif but it's a really interesting product, and I'm strongly considering it.

  • Are Energy And Technology ETFs Cheap?  [View article]
    Gary, great article as always. I like these two sectors, and have selected VGT and PXE as my entry point into them. VGT is similarly concentrated in AAPL, but has a lower forward P/E than IYW. Do you have any thoughts on these two?
