My article on investing in the E-commerce secular trend – now available for free

With permission from Canadian MoneySaver, I am happy to provide a free copy of my article on E-commerce that was published in February 2017.

The article explores the growth trend in E-commerce and some investment opportunities and risks.

Here is my article: E-Commerce_Patenaude

Since writing it, another ETF has come to my attention that might be worth further research by investors (note this is not an endorsement of any kind): Emerging Markets Internet & Ecommerce ETF (EMQQ).

According to YCharts, the fund is up 44% year-to-date and has $104M US in assets under management, an average of 128,000 shares trading per month (a bit small), and an expense ratio of 0.86% (a bit high). There is an article about EMQQ here.

(Note that I also wrote an article on the water/water scarcity secular theme that was published in Canadian MoneySaver in June 2017. My next article will be on robotics and automation, hopefully published in the August or September timeframe.)
