4 New ETFs to Make You a HAPI 😊 Investor
It’s time for you to get into the MOST important sectors creating the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
I’m keeping the new opportunities coming for you.
Today is a HAPI portfolio.
With this new acronym, you gain exposure to four outstanding mega trends that’s growth will be off the charts in 2021:
- 3D printing
- Housing boom
I believe these four ETFs will put a smile on your face, and have the potential to put gains in your pocket!
So check out this week’s video for the HAPI four ETFs:
Closing Our STIXX Stock Positions
Hey everyone. It’s Paul with your Bold Profits Daily. I once again have big news. This time it’s for the fans of STIXX. Those of you who have been following the YouTube channel know I have been putting out mini portfolios as freebies to show you the kind of investing we do in my flagship newsletter called Profits Unlimited.
If you are interested in checking out Profits Unlimited go to ProfitsUnlimited.com for more information.
If you have been following me, you know last week we closed out one of these mini portfolios called STUF. If you had followed STUF from the beginning when we put it up to when we closed it, it would have made you nearly 480%, including a 1,000% winner in Tesla.
If you were following last week you know we released BUZZ. If you want to check into that, make sure you go to last week’s video. The second mini portfolio out there was a portfolio called STIXX. Yes, I used the word “was.” We are going to call STIXX. We are closing it.
The final results are in. STIXX, as many of you may know, was five ETFs. ETFs for those unfamiliar are stocks made up of many stocks. These are stocks that trade in the stock market, but you are really buying into a basket or portfolio of stocks.
For those of you who haven’t been following, STIXX had the semiconductors ETF with the symbol SMH. It has the world’s semiconductor companies. Then it had the solar ETF which is really an ETF which has what we refer to as new energy companies — solar companies and all the technologies that comprise that group of stocks.
That had the ticker TAN. That’s the S and the T in STIXX. Then we had a housing ETF that has a lot of housing and housing-related companies. That had the ticker symbol ITB. Then we had two X’s. One was XBI, which is a biotech index. The last one is the industrials ETF, which has the ticker XLI.
So this portfolio was begun on March 2, 2020, before the crash happened. Obviously I had no idea at the moment the crash was coming. Nonetheless, my point is, even if you bought in prior to the crash the results are that this portfolio is up 74%. That compares very well to the S&P 500 which was up 21%.
The STIXX portfolio was up more than three times the S&P 500. In other words, it was a pretty good deal if you chose to follow along. Obviously, you would have gone through some volatility, but 70% is nothing to laugh at. It’s a good deal.
So in keeping with this tradition of trying to show you what’s in Profits Unlimited — once again, if you want to check it out, just go to ProfitsUnlimited.com. These mini portfolios — STIXX, STUF, BUZZ — really show you the kinds of sectors that I believe comprise the most important parts of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the world around it.
Introducing HAPI Stocks
The new mini portfolio we are going for has the acronym HAPI. Because happiness is good, it’s something I aspire for and I hope you do as well. So what is in the new HAPI portfolio?
The very first letter is H and what we are going to do for the H is buy into the Global X Video Games & Esports ETF (Nasdaq: HERO). It’s comprised of so many different gaming companies and companies that support that ecosystem. This is a booming world.
Many of you will be shocked to know that the video gaming industry is now bigger than Hollywood and all organized sports combined. It’s growing at somewhere between 10% and 15% a year. It’s already an industry that’s worth well in excess of $200 billion.
In other words, this is big and growing very fast. This is the reason to get into gaming. When you look at the factors causing gaming to continue to grow this fast — faster than movies, faster than organized sports — it goes at who is buying these games. It’s our favorite generation: the millennials.
They have grown up playing these games from the time they were kids. Gen Z is doing the same. The other aspect is the continuation of amazing technology being put into gaming consoles. Then, what I believe is going to be a continuing explosion of technology as virtual reality, augmented reality and holograms all start to get integrated in the gaming world.
I believe it’s going to be an explosion of creativity, growth and stock market gains. This is why HERO is our very first ETF in our HAPI mini portfolio.
The second one is ARK Fintech Innovation ETF (NYSEArca: ARKF). This is from our friends at ARK Invest. This is their fintech ETF. Fintech for those of you unaware is the takeover going on right now of the banking system and financial system by apps and companies integrating aspects of finance, banking and money.
They are making it so easy to do that people are beginning to abandon the old banking system and financial system and starting to use these apps instead of the banks. This is something that is pretty early but I believe in 2021 the growth in these companies is going to be off the charts.
So much that is wanted today, as a result of what happened last year with the virus and everything else. It also meets basic things so many people have wanted from our financial system: more convenience, less cost, more control, more access and more of all these things that allow you to have more control over your money.
Apps like PayPal, Venmo and others that are coming are looking to give folks what they want, more access to their money at a cheaper price with greater convenience and greater accessibility. I believe this is going to be a massive disruption to a large industry.
The banking, finance and insurance industry is an industry that has largely stayed away from doing any kind of innovation. I believe they are ripe to be disrupted. These apps and the companies that own them are setting up to do incredibly well. This is why ARKF is the second ETF in our HAPI portfolio.
The third one is The 3D Printing ETF (BATS: PRNT). If you are a subscriber and member of Profits Unlimited or any of my premium services at my publisher Bold Profits, you know we are all in on 3D printing. I believe it’s going to completely revolutionize the making of everything.
It’s happening already in the space industry, it’s coming to the housing industry and every part of the U.S. economy and then the world economy. With it, it will take 3D printing stocks and rocket them higher. This has already been happening.
Some folks who have been in our services have been experiencing some of these gains. I’m sure there will be some happy subscribers about this. Nonetheless, we are still in the early days of this 3D printing revolution.
People are still largely unaware of the enormous capability of this amazing technology. If you want to get in on this, I believe it’s still early.
These stocks have an enormous amount of runway as they keep entering old fields where we make things and then also help change the way we can get into industries like space and others. For that development, I would tell you to buy the PRNT ETF.
We’ve done H, A and P, the last one is a repeat from the STIXX portfolio. We are going to keep the iShares US Home Construction ETF (BATS: ITB). This is an ETF that owns companies that make houses and lots of related industries.
The reason to continue to keep this in our mini portfolio is because there is a housing boom on. We have not been making enough houses for in excess of a decade. And we have the millennial generation and gen Z who want to buy houses, they are ready to buy houses.
There is a massive shortage out there. I believe this shortage will continue for a number of years. There is a long lag and lead time to be able to put up a house. You have to identify and prepare the land. There’s obviously a lot of regulations and rules that go around this.
Then you have to put up the house itself. There is also a labor shortage in the housing industry. This means they are unable to put up the houses even if they have gone through the previous steps that I mentioned.
What it means is that this boom is likely to continue and we want to be part of it. We know the millennial generation is huge, gen Z is pretty big. When you combine the two it represents a massive amount of demand.
This means more and continuing demand for housing. This is why we are going to keep ITB from our last mini portfolio.
So those are the four ETFs in our mini portfolio HAPI. Don’t forget the happy face emoji that goes along with this. Once again, we are doing this because we are trying to show you the kinds of things we focus on at Profits Unlimited, my flagship newsletter, and our publishing company Bold Profits.
If you are interested in that, check into Profits Unlimited. Check out HAPI and see if it makes you happy. Certainly those who got in on STIXX did pretty well. I believe we have a good shot of doing at least as well or better. Try out HAPI and see how it goes.
We will continue to track HAPI throughout 2021 and keep giving you updates.
