How would you have liked to made over 40 percent from an investment over the last 52 weeks? That is exactly what the IShares S&P Global Communications has done; it’s up 45.04 percent to be exact over the last 52 weeks. This stock goes by the stock symbol IXP and for anyone wanting to cash in on all the craze over cell phones and telecommunications, then this is a great way to do it. I really like this ETF and see a strong upside for years to come. They invest almost 99% of their assets into telecom, so this is a telecom play all the way. It seeks companies from all over the world, so not only do they give you telecom exposure, but also to foreign markets that can be a nice addition to your portfolio.
I have been showing you several ETFs over the last few weeks and I am just excited about this one, as ones I have posted about earlier. I think ETF’s are a safe investment choice and this IShares S&P Global Communications has a bright outlook and you can even feel comfortable sticking this one into the IRA account. Shares are approaching the $72 level and this ETF doesn’t scare me at the $92 level, so I think $72 is an excellent bargain for getting in on the ETF today!
