It’s Valentine’s Day-time to decide if you want to pull out some money from those returns on your exchange traded funds (ETFs). Whether your wining and dining or giving gifts of sparkles and sweets, investors, you can give back to your own investments. BusinessWeek online has some chocolate tidbits on cocoa from around the world. Places like Ghana, Ecuador, and Venezuela boast some of the finest chocolates, so you can help boost their economy and purchase a few of those confections.
Rather buy an ETF? Unfortunately, there isn’t a chocolate ETF or one for Ghana or Venezuela. But what about Swiss chocolate or Belgium chocolate? There is the iShares MSCI Belgium (EWK) and iShares MSCI Switzerland (EWL) – Nestle is the top holding here.
For full disclosure, some of Tom Lydon’s managed accounts own EWK.
