  • Hi, My name is Corey and Im with ETF Trading
    Research, today were reviewing our recently
    published article

4
  • Investing In Social Media Today

5
  • Facebook FB, Instagram, Twitter TWTR, YouTube,
    LinkedIn LNKD Its hard to imagine a world
    without social media. People have become
    accustomed to sharing their lives and exploring
    the world through these internet platforms.

6
  • And its not just individuals but businesses as
    well. Companies of all shapes ands sizes use
    social media. Facebook and Twitter are essential
    pieces of any marketing plan for companies these
    days.

7
  • Social networking sites are a great place most of
    the time, but they can change your entire life
    with a single post or tweet.

8
  • Needless to say, social media has a huge impact
    on society.
  • But theres a bigger question for investors

9
  • Can you make money investing in Social Media
    Today?

10
  • Not all social media is alike. Some are places
    to engage with friends and family, others are
    built for business networking, others are coupon
    sites, and the list goes on and on.

11
  • Needless to say, the level of engagement with
    their audience varies quite a bit from one
    company to the next. Whats more, key
    fundamentals such as profit margins, earnings,
    revenue, and growth are very different among
    social media companies.

12
  • Despite these important differences, theres no
    denying that social media has a growing footprint
    in todays society. And that makes for a
    compelling investment.

13
  • Here are a few ETFs that allow you to invest in
    social media today.
  • Global X Social Media Index ETF SOCL

14
  • SOCL is an ETF that includes companies from all
    over the world. These companies provide social
    networking, file sharing, and other web-based
    media applications.

15
  • This ETF specializes in purchasing social media
    stocks shortly after their IPO. SOCL was one of
    the earliest buyers of Facebook.

16
  • The ETF is currently trading for 18.75. Its up
    5 just this month. SOCL has an expense ratio of
    0.65 and a dividend yield of 0.05. It has
    72.58 million in assets under management.

  • Some of the top holdings in SOCL are LinkedIn,
    Pandora P, Facebook, Groupon GRPN, and Google
    GOOG.
  • iShares Global Tech IXN

19
  • IXN is a true global technology ETF. It covers
    approximately the top 70 of the worlds market
    cap, eliminating most emerging markets exposure.
    It tracks a market-cap-weighted index of SP
    Global 1200 technology stocks.

20
  • The ETF is currently priced at 95.03 which is up
    5 since last month. IXN has a dividend yield of
    1.16 and a price earnings ratio of 16.08. Its
    expense ratio is .48 and has 846.48 million AUM.

21
  • Its major holdings include Apple AAPL, Microsoft
    MSFT, Google, Visa V, and Facebook. IXN will
    give you exposure to social media as well as
    other major tech stocks.
  • But I have to admit

22
  • ETFs arent the best way to invest in social
    media today.

23
  • It pains me to say that as an avid proponent of
    ETFs. And if you buy into the investment thesis
    that most social media stocks will find a way to
    generate quality returns for investors over the

24
  • long run, then an ETF like SOCL or IXN will work.
    However, I think there will be as many winners as
    losers in social media. The failures will more
    than likely offset the performance of the
    winners.

25
  • This is one industry that investors are better
    off investing in a few of the best social media
    stocks than buying the entire basket with an ETF.
