EG Shares Emerging Market Consumer ETF (ECON)

With the global population skyrocketing (we’ve passed the 7 billion mark), consumer stocks seem like an increasingly logical choice. That’s where the EG Shares Emerging Market Consumer ETF (ECON) comes in. This ETF tracks the Dow Jones Emerging Markets Consumer Titans 30 Index, and is one of Charles Sizemore’s favorite picks.

South Africa, China, Mexico and Brazil collectively make up 68% of ECON’s holdings. The top three holdings are Naspers LTD (NPSNY) at 10%, AmBev (ABV) at 8% and FEMSA (FMX) at 5.6%.

All of ECON’s holdings are in the consumer goods or consumer services industry, which means this ETF will rise or fall with consumer spending. But given its exposure to countries with growing economies, this ETF is set to soar as soon as the global economy stabilizes.

As of this writing, Robert Martin did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
