ETFs Gone Nuclear

|Includes: CEG, DUK, EXC, MORN, VanEck Vectors Uranium+Nuclear Energy ETF (NLR), NUCL, PKN

Nuclear reactors are large and expensive to build, so the planned projects overseas could help to give this fund long-term potential. The fund is heavy on utilities, so investors should double-check their existing utilities exposure before unwittingly doubling down.
