Amid charges of racketeering and plotting to steal trade secrets from U.S. companies, Huawei got the cold shoulder from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday, as she cautioned nations against working with the Chinese telecom giant and requested that other nations work with the U.S. as the globe races to develop 5G networks. “This is the most insidious form of aggression, to have that line of communication, 5G, dominated by an autocratic government that does not share our values,” Pelosi, D-Calif., told an audience at the Munich Security Conference. “If you want to build a collective conscience of values and respect for human rights and the rest, don’t go near Huawei and instead, let’s internationalize and build something together that will be about freedom of information,” she added.
Real estate exchange-traded funds (ETFs) hold baskets of securities in the real estate sector, providing an investors with a way to investing in an otherwise high-cost area. These funds often focus specifically on real estate investment trusts (REIT), securitized portfolios of real estate properties which offer income potential associated with real estate as well as the liquidity of traditional stocks.
Hedge funds are not perfect. They have their bad picks just like everyone else. Facebook, a stock hedge funds have loved dearly, lost nearly 40% of its value at one point in 2018.

Pacer ETFs has hit $5 billion in assets under management (AUM) after adding another $1 billion in the past five months, the ETF issuer announced Monday.

Broadly speaking, the real estate sector and the related exchange traded funds have been impressive this year, but for investors willing to take on more tactical views, the real estate ETF rewards have been significantly higher in 2019. Take the case of the Pacer Benchmark Data & Infrastructure Real Estate SCTR ETF (NYSE: SRVR), also known as the real estate ETF avenue to the 5G theme. SRVR, which tracks the Benchmark Data & Infrastructure Real Estate SCTR Index, is up 37.34% year to date.
The introduction of the 5G network has been highly touted in the technological space, but will it really be as revolutionary as people think? Goldman Sachs analyst Rod Hall said the speed of the forthcoming technology “isn’t going to change much” when users actually experience 5G. In particular, Hall referenced Apple who is making its own version of the iPhone that will support 5G technology.
This article is a part of InvestorPlace's Best ETFs for 2019 contest. Robert Waldo's pick for the contest is the Pacer Benchmark Data & Infrastructure Real Estate ETF (NYSEARCA:SRVR).We're coming toward the end of InvestorPlace's best ETFs for 2019 contest and my pick, the Pacer Benchmark Data & Infrastructure Real Estate ETF (NYSEARCA:SRVR), remains at the top of the pack, only slightly behind Vince Martin's pick, iShares U.S. Home Construction ETF (BATS:ITB), in terms of year-to-date performance (SRVR is up 40% YTD; ITB is up 42% YTD).InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsAlthough I don't think investors should expect the 5G exchange-traded fund to climb significantly higher by the end of the year, I do believe it can win the contest, and possibly gain a few more percentage points along the way. Since my last update in July, the ETF has climbed 13%, maintaining its No. 2 ranking among the best ETFs. What to Expect From SRVR at the End of 2019At the start of the year, I mentioned the yield curve inverting and the trade war between the U.S. and China as reasons for investors to have concern. But, broadly speaking, it hasn't necessarily been all doom and gloom for stocks in 2019.In fact, as InvestorPlace contributor Luke Lango points out in his recent article on high-performing S&P 500 stocks:"Through the first half of the year, the S&P 500 was on track for its best year in over two decades. To be sure, gains have been muted in the third quarter despite major indices flirting with all-time highs. But with the S&P 500 up 20% year-to-date, stocks are still having one of their best years this century."True as this may be, I still maintain my long-term case for SRVR, as its holdings present unique opportunities -- a combination of dividend-boosted stability and continual growth potential -- in a questionable time, where the trade war has no clear end in sight. * 8 Dividend Stocks to Buy for a Recession Even if you share the optimism of investors like Luke Lango, SRVR is one of the best ETFs you could buy this year. Because regardless of trade war concerns or a recession, the holdings in this real estate investment trust (REIT) ETF mainly focus on infrastructure that's essential to the daily operations of our technologically connected world.And much of this infrastructure is based in the U.S., dodging the influence of trade war peril.Consider top holding Crown Castle (NYSE:CCI) as example of this dual strength. According to Yahoo Fiance's description for CCI: "Crown Castle owns, operates and leases more than 40,000 cell towers and approximately 75,000 route miles of fiber supporting small cells and fiber solutions across every major U.S. market." This is a U.S.-based holding that will be at the forefront of the inevitable 5G future, which will be the catalyst for countless other technological advancements. And SRVR is packed with holdings with similar attributes to CCI.Ultimately, SRVR should remain a strong contender among the best ETFs this year. And it will likely be one of the best ETFs to buy for years to come, as the 5G catalyst, which many of its holdings stand to benefit from, is only getting heated up.The SRVR ETF has an expense ratio of 0.6%, or $60 annually per $10,000 invested.Robert Waldo is an assistant editor at InvestorPlace. As of this writing, he did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

The advent of 5G technology and its rollout within the next year could give investors something to cheer about when it comes to exchange-traded fund (ETFs) that focus on the technology that is expected to gain widespread adoption. With such as groundbreaking technology at the ready, it could spark its own form of industrial revolution. “New technologies have led to a series of industrial revolutions,” wrote Benchmark Investments founder Kevin Kelly in an email.
The fifth generation of wireless connectivity, or 5G, is getting plenty of attention this year although it doesn't roll in earnest until 2020. While there are some exchange traded funds explicitly dedicated to the 5G theme, one of the best ways of playing 5G this year has been with the Pacer Benchmark Data & Infrastructure Real Estate (NYSE: SRVR). All SRVR has done this year is gain nearly 36%, outpacing the largest real estate ETF by about 1,200 basis points.
As China looks to become less reliant on the U.S. for resources like technology, its looking to build up its 5G mobile network. As such, exchange-traded fund (ETF) investors should take note of funds that focus on 5G technology.
There was plenty of talk about the inverted yield curve last month, the scenario where 10-year Treasury yields creep above the yields on two-year notes, and that chatter is usually ominous in nature because the inverted yield curve has often been a reliable recession indicator. The inverted yield curve doesn't have to be all gloom and doom. Some historical data points indicate there are opportunities when the scenario occurs, including with real estate investment trusts, which often outperform a year after the yield curve inverts.
Amid the trade war turmoil, reports surfaced that Chinese telecommunications equipment giant Huawei could potentially hinder the buildup of 5G infrastructure. U.S. President Donald Trump's further actions on Huawei conducting business in the U.S. could pave the way for gains in exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that focus on 5G technology. China's state media argued that banning Huawei would reduce competition and drive up the cost of implementing 5G technology, but according to experts, that claim doesn't hold weight.
With the evolution of 5G, cloud computing and e-commerce growing rapidly, trillions of dollars will be spent in the next few years to facilitate the massive build out of infrastructure and technology to support these disruptive industries. On the recent webcast, 5G, Cloud Computing and E-commerce: How to Capture the Growth in ETF Strategies, Sean O'Hara, President, Pacer ETFs Distributors, Pacer ETFs and Kevin Kelly, CEO, Benchmark Investments, explored how advisors can capitalize on thematic growth trends and yield opportunities associated with 5G, autonomous vehicles, servers, artificial intelligence, e-commerce and streaming. To capitalize on this big spending, Pacer ETFs has a line-up of defined solutions to help investors access these targeted areas of growth, including the Pacer Benchmark Industrial Real Estate SCTR ETF (INDS) , Pacer Benchmark Data & Infrastructure Real Estate SCTR ETF (SRVR) and Pacer Benchmark Retail Real Estate SCTR ETF (RTL) .

A recent report from the European Systemic Risk Board says the increased use of ETFs may pose a risk during periods of financial stress. But that may not be the case.
Editor's Note: This article is part of InvestorPlace.com's Best ETFs for 2019 contest. Dana Blankenhorn's pick is Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund (NYSEARCA:XLF).At the start of 2019, when we relaunched our best exchange-traded funds feature, I thought the market was getting frothy and chose to get defensive with the Financial Sector Spider ETF (NYSEARCA:XLF).InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsSo far, that's up 15%. Pretty fly for an old guy. But folks who were more aggressive have done better. The editor of this section, Robert Waldo, has more than doubled me up with his choice, the Pacer Benchmark Data & Infrastructure Real Estate ETF (NYSEARCA:SRVR). SRVR has big holdings in technology landlords like American Tower (NYSE:AMT), which owns most of those big cell towers you love, and Equinix (NASDAQ:EQIX), a data center REIT that connects the clouds.Can the big banks come back? Look for ConsolidationHope for a comeback lies in consolidation. The merger of BB&T (NYSE:BBT) and SunTrust (NYSE:STI) to create something called Truist is making investors money. It's a big win for Charlotte, which will be the new bank's headquarters, and a loss for my hometown of Atlanta, where SunTrust is based.The Prosperity Bancshares (NYSE:PB) acquisition of LegacyTexas Financial Group (NASDAQ:LTXB) in Dallas gave that state its first big locally owned bank in decades. By such standards it's still a minnow. Total assets will be about $30 billion (SunTrust alone is worth seven times more) but if this is the start of a trend, then XLF investors should benefit. That's because takeovers fuel speculation about more takeovers, leading speculators to feed on potential targets and bankers to start whispering sweet nothings of profit in other bankers' ears. * 10 'Buy-and-Hold' Stocks to Own Forever Banks Are Payment ProcessorsIn general, however, banks remain subject to the same computerization trend facing other service-based businesses like insurance and real estate.

On the other hand, the biggest banks are also the biggest payment processors. They're not going to let that business go without a fight.Expect more deals. Bottom Line on the XLF ETFThe bottom line is that as money continues to become magnetic ink, banks will remain under pressure to consolidate and run off to the dog track with the depositors' money. The likelihood of more scandals like that of Deutsche Bank (NYSE:DB), once seen as a Donald Trump-era darling, is only going to grow.It all comes down to a new sobering reality.

A recent uptick in equity market uncertainty is prompting many investors to revisit defensive and lower volatility assets and the related ETFs. Some of the ETFs to buy for investors looking to be defensive are broad market funds and that makes sense, but some sectors can help investors bolster their portfolios' defensive postures.The real estate sector is one of the smallest sectors in the S&P 500, but is also home to plenty of ETFs to buy for investors looking for defensive exposure. Recently, the Vanguard Real Estate ETF (NYSEARCA:VNQ), the largest real estate ETF by assets, has performed less poorly than the broader market. Historically, large-cap real estate investment trust (REIT) funds have not only delivered higher dividend yields than broader equity benchmarks, but less volatility as well.With expectations in place that the Federal Reserve will not raise interest rates this year, the rate-sensitive real estate sector could present defensive investors with a slew of credible ETFs to buy. Adding to that case is the domestic focus of the real estate sector, making the group ideal for investors looking skirt international headline risk.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 6 Signs That Marijuana Legalization is Closer Than You Think For investors searching for some defensive ETFs to buy, consider some of the following real estate funds. Pacer Benchmark Data & Infrastructure Real Estate SCTR ETF (SRVR)Source: Shutterstock Expense ratio: 0.60% per year, or $60 on a $10,000 investment.A good point to remember when looking for ETFs to buy, or any asset class for that matter, is to look for strength in the face of weakness. The Pacer Benchmark Data & Infrastructure Real Estate SCTR ETF (NYSEARCA:SRVR) certainly fits that bill. While broader indexes and some traditional real estate funds have recently scuffled, SRVR is up 1.10% over the past week, extending its impressive year-to-date gain to 22.61%.SRVR can be seen as a next-generation real estate ETF to buy because it is levered to a slew of exciting trends, including cloud computing, 5G and other revolutionary technologies. What makes SRVR one of the premier real estate ETFs to buy is that rival, traditional funds, such as VNQ, have only token exposure to the REITs that are driving SRVR higher. Investors are not giving up on income by embracing SRVR. The REIT fund had a dividend yield of 3.25% at the end of the first quarter. Overall, this ETF buy is offering up plenty for investors to like, including an above-average dividend yield, significant leverage to a fast-growing theme and strength in the face of broader market adversity. Global X SuperDividend REIT ETF (SRET)Source: Shutterstock Expense ratio: 0.59%The Global X SuperDividend REIT ETF (NASDAQ:SRET) is at the other end of the spectrum as the aforementioned SRVR. SRET is down 2.57% over the past week and its chart indicates the fund could have further to fall over the near term. So this fund may not be an ETF to buy right now, but it is one for investors to consider when global headwinds abate.SRET tracks the Solactive Global SuperDividend REIT Index and holds 30 of the world's highest yielding REITs, giving it some international diversity. That said, SRET's ex-US exposure is currently modest and comes in the form of a roughly 10% combined allocation to France and Australia. With more than 59% of its weight allocated to mortgage REITs, or mREITs, SRET is positioned to take advantage of a more sanguine interest rate outlook in the U.S. With a 30-day SEC yield of 7.97%, SRET is most certainly a high-yield asset, meaning it needs the Federal Reserve to remain on hold with rate hikes. * 7 Dividend Stocks to Buy as the Trade War Reignites Still, some investors view this an ETF to buy. SRET had $180.72 million in assets under management at the end of the first quarter, a figure that has since jumped to almost $204 million. SRET also pays a monthly dividend. Pacer Benchmark Industrial Real Estate SCTR ETF (INDS)Source: Oleg Zaytsev via FlickrExpense ratio: 0.60%Like its aforementioned stablemate SRVR, the Pacer Benchmark Industrial Real Estate SCTR ETF (NYSEARCA:INDS) is an ETF to buy because it is at the epicenter of some seismic shifts in the real estate universe. There are plenty of headlines out there about the "death of retail" and the "retail apocalypse," but that chatter is relevant to brick-and-mortar retailers, not e-commerce names like Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN). Simply put, e-commerce is the future of retail, brick-and-mortar stores are rapidly closing and e-commerce companies need space.Retailers closed a record-breaking 102 million square feet of store space in 2017, then smashed that record in 2018 by closing another 155 million square feet of space, according to estimates by the commercial real estate firm CoStar Group," reports Business InsiderMore than 6,000 retail stores have been shuttered just this year and some analysts believe the U.S. remains well overstocked when it comes to physical retail space. Expect the industrial REITs in INDS to snatch up plenty of that space and market it to purveyors of online retail operations. INDS yields 3.35% and is up 20.63% year-to-date, trouncing its more traditional rivals, like VNQ, while underscoring its status as one of the best real estate ETFs to buy.Todd Shriber does not own any of the aforementioned securities.
