Thanksgiving Turkeys and ETFs: Let 'Em Fly | ETF Trends

This Thanksgiving, are you going fresh cage-free or frozen Butterball? Either way, you could help boost agriculture and livestock exchange traded funds (ETFs).

Turkeys can generally be found running around hardwood forests with grassy areas. They roost in trees, typically flying to their nests at sunset. A wild turkey has really good vision, and this is the main attribute that keeps them from hunters. With a field vision of 270 degrees, they can also run between 50-55 mph, says Aristotle.

As Thanksgiving marks the end of the harvest season, many agriculture farms and ETFs can benefit from your purchase of a turkey. Whether you decide to go cage-free and natural or the “traditional” route, we should give our thanks to all who came before us and united together, adding to the unity that we have today. Their cooperation and interaction during colonial days have made their mark in our society.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
