What are good ETF's?

In verband met mijn vorige vraag over best new stocks in hetzelfde kader. Welke ETF’s zouden jullie aanbevelen en waarom?

Depends on what you’re looking for. There are many ETF’s that focus on a particular sector (housing, energy, technology, etc). There are also many ETF’s that track the market as a whole (FTSE100, S&P500, etc). Some ETF’s pay dividend, some do not.

If you think a particular sector is going to outperform the general market (as Technology has done the recent time) it might be wise to invest in an ETF that mostly consists of that type of stocks. If you want to play it safe, it might be best to invest in a wider-market ETF. Generally speaking the market is always going up, so you can’t really go wrong with a wide-market ETF.

I like the Dividend Themed ones. Those are the ones I wanna hoard on the long term. They become a little bit more valuable over time, but mostly because of the dividend payouts…

Pure passive investor go with a really broad world wide etf. For example the vanguard all world, ticker vwrl, is really popular with passive investors in europe. In this way you follow the market as a whole. Put something in every month, forget it and let compound interest do its thing.

The EU Dividend ETF (iShares) has been on a steady (more or less) 9% rise over the last three months. Quite happy with that one.

Hello @jensBUX

Via the app, I have requested the ARK Invest ETF’s multiple times now. Untill now I haven’t gotten an answer. Could you inform me about the status?

ARK Invest ETFs are unfortunately not UCITS. UCITS is a designation that ensures that your ETF conforms to European Union regulations designed to protect the general public from unsuitable investment vehicles. As BUX, we only offer UCITS ETFs as these ETFs fulfil specific client safety standards.

Best,
jens

Besides what good ETF’s are, I am curious about two things:

  1. Do you guys buy ETF’s no matter the timing (like once a month), or do you follow charts/technical analysis for an entry?

  2. Do you ever sell ETF’s or do you consider them long term HODL :wink: ?

Cheers!

Hi Mikkel!

Personally i have some ETF’s but due to my small price range they are not the bigger ones so to speak. I am in it for the longterm and i only look for ETF’s which interest me. Like technical for example.

Every time i invest more on the app i try to look more at ETF’s lately. Even though the dividend is not huge. It is still fun :wink:

And what EFT’s are there that specifically focus on bigtech companies like Microsoft, broadcom, salesforce, adobe,…

Beside S&P500(lots of bigtech) I can’t really see something on BUX

I love accumulating ETFs (they are great for tax purposes for Belgians especially). These are ETFs that reinvest the dividends into the fund instead of paying them out.

Unfortunately Bux recently decided to block those for Belgian users, for reasons still unknown. They said due to “regulations”, but they’re UCITS ETFs and therefore perfectly in compliance with the law.

I managed to buy into a few of these ETFs before Bux blocked them and these are actually the ones that performed best out of all my positions (eg iShares Automation and Robotics ETF, the Lyxor All World Index ETF and the Lyxor All World Socially Responsible ETF). They did quite well since I started with Bux in May this year. For now I can hold and sell those positions, but I can’t invest more into them anymore. It really sucks. :confounded:

I really hope Bux will allow Belgian users to buy these ETFs again in the near future, because I planned on making most of my portfolio these ETFs, and Bux made this plan impossible now. So I’m not sure it was a good idea to choose Bux as a broker if this doesn’t change… :worried:
