You can find an ETF for just about any stock category you could think of : natural resources, clean energy, drones, marijuana, healthcare.

You name it.

While investing in a theme can be rewarding (see our post about 5 Emerging Markets ETFs you should Buy Now), other themes are clearly not optimized for your portfolio’s performance or gains. It’s probably not a good idea to think your social agenda is a good investment plan.

Try to be careful on theme-oriented ETFs. Don’t confuse good intentions like wanting clean water with investing.

Let’s look at 5 theme-oriented ETFs we would NOT recommend you to buy…

Etfs Healthcare

IHI-N

iShares DJ Medical Devices ETF

 
 

Medical devices have been fantastic the last 5 years. Like tech, we’re there already. PE is 40x, so a lot of the growth has already happened. It’s just too late.

IHI and the medical devices theme by itself doesn’t sound bad.

But with a PE of 40x it might be expensive and there is probably not a lot of room for growth (and gains).
