    Water’s cheap, but water-related stocks have heated up this year

    At about a penny a gallon in many places, water might be difficult to think of as a good investment, but stocks and exchange-traded funds related to it have rallied nicely this year.

    The Case for Investing in Water

    At about a penny a gallon in many places, water might be difficult to think of as a good investment, but stocks and exchange-traded funds related to it have rallied nicely this year. Water is an “essential part of our daily lives,” observes Christopher Muir, an equity analyst at CFRA Research, pointing out that it’s used in everything from drinking, ice-making, cooking, and cleaning to cooling, firefighting, and electric-power generation. For instance, in Switzerland, water prices are about four times those in the U.S.—not because it costs that much more to produce clean water, but because it isn’t heavily subsidized.
