5 ETFs to Buy for 2013

Recession-proof ETFs will be the way to go

iShares Dow Jones U.S. Energy Sector Index Fund

One product that American will always use — even when it’s stupid expensive — is fuel. So you’ll want to have an energy ETF in there, and there are many choices in that category as well.

I suggest focusing on those energy producers and explorers, so the iShares Dow Jones U.S. Energy Sector Index Fund (NYSE:IYE) is my choice here. This contains a number of sturdy (though not overly generous) dividend payers, including Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM) and Schlumberger (NYSE:SLB).

Expenses: 0.47%
Yield: 1.55%
