    Growing and Still Going: 3 ETFs That Give Investors Growth Exposure

    While more investors are taking a more defensive posture by allocating their capital into value-oriented funds, there can still be opportunities for growth ETFs to be had. “Schwab’s growth-oriented SCHG fund has rock-bottom 0.04% annual expenses, or just $4 annually in management fees on every $10,000 invested,” wrote Jeff Reeves in U.S. News & World Report. “The fund is admittedly just a vanilla index fund, with a simple screen for growth characteristics and a market-cap weighting that biases toward mega-cap technology stocks like Apple (AAPL) and Microsoft Corp. (MSFT).

    10 Growth ETFs to Buy for Backside Protection, Too

    Growth exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are as straightforward as they sound: They're portfolios of growth stocks.By definition, a growth stock is any company with an above-average growth profile. In other words, they are companies whose revenues and earnings are expanding faster than the market average. They also often pay little or no dividends, opting instead to reinvest their cash flow in the business to maintain their growth.But they have their pitfalls; namely, when growth slows. Recently, outdoor gear maker Canada Goose (GOOS) lost more than 30% of its value in a single day after reporting lower-than-expected fourth-quarter earnings. Although revenues rocketed 40% higher year-over-year and profits jumped 20%, it still marked the company's slowest growth in eight quarters, prompting fears its tremendous growth was coming to an end. Whether that's true is up for debate. But if you owned GOOS stock, you couldn't have been pleased about the one-day plunge.This is why owning growth ETFs makes so much sense. By diversifying your growth-stock holdings through a fund, you're protecting your downside.Here are 10 growth ETFs to buy if you want to cut back on the risk of owning individual shares.

    The 45 Cheapest Index Funds in the ETF Universe

    Vanguard. Schwab. iShares. SPDR. All of these exchange-traded fund (ETF) giants undercut each other for years by putting out the cheapest index funds they could. All competed against each other in a so-called "race to zero."And all lost to the most unlikely of dark horses.Upstart SoFi recently rattled the low-cost establishment by becoming the first provider to launch ETFs with zero annual expenses - and did so with the launch of its first two ETFs. (For the record, Fidelity introduced the first no-fee index funds in the mutual fund industry back in August 2018.)The large-cap SoFi Select 500 ETF (SFY) and mid-cap SoFi Next 500 ETF (SFYX) joined the markets on Thursday, April 11. Each fund has a listed expense ratio of 0.19%, but SoFi will waive those fees through at least June 30, 2020. That clearly will make them the cheapest ETFs in their respective categories.But it doesn't cost much to invest in any corner of the market. A host of other categories feature index funds that, while not totally free, charge microscopic fees that make them extremely cost-efficient.Here are 45 of the cheapest index funds in the U.S. ETF universe. These ETFs, listed by Morningstar category, cover stocks, bonds and other assets across a wide range of strategies. SEE ALSO: The 19 Best ETFs for a Prosperous 2019
