Invest in Telecommunications with ETFs.

Are you looking for some investing opportunities in the telecommunications sector? Then you might want to give your portfolio some exposure to Telecommunications ETFs. Without having to hunt for the right telecommunications stocks or battle the price of an index basket, you can get instant access to the sector with one simple transaction.

You also get the many benefits that come with ETF investing such as tax advantages, ease of usage, and in some cases revenue streams and lower fees.

So if utilizing a telecom ETF sounds like a strong financial plan to you, then check out the telecommunication funds on this list.

And there are quite a few telecommunication investing options on this list as well. We have foreign funds (such as IXP) , inverse ETFs (such as TLL) and even some leveraged choices, too (such as LTL). So make sure to check out each fund and see which is the best fit for your investing strategy…

    So almost a dozen telecom products to research as of today, and make sure to check back often as I will update this list as it grows or remove and funds that get de-listed.

    (I've updated this list recently with a pair of new funds FCOM and DXJT, and a pair of closed funds, AXTE and TLL)

    Also, before making any trade, I advise you to consult your advisor, your broker or a financial professional. Research each telecommunications fund individually and have a good feel for how the fund works and how they react to different market conditions. It may even make sense to take a look under the hood and see what is in the fund, such as stocks, derivatives, and cash.

    As with any investment, conduct the due diligence necessary to make the right decisions based on your goals and your risks. No investment is risk-free, so make sure you are aware of the pros and cons of any investment or in this case…telecommunications ETF.

    Also, if you’re looking for related ETFs to telecommunications funds, you might want to check out these IT Services funds. Their holdings consist of companies that provide telecommunication management services…

      And as I mentioned with the Telcom ETFs, be sure to research these funds just as closely.

      So whether you are looking for direct exposure to the telecom industry or some indirect exposure (through a related industry like the information technology funds listed above), there are some nice selections. And hopefully, as the popularity of exchange traded funds grows, there will be even more selections in the future. In the meantime, good luck with your telecom investing and all your trading as well.
