Perhaps, Samsung’s marketing strategy is having a great effect on our youth. Maybe there are some out there who can relate; this Christmas, my gamer 15-year old asked if he could give up his iPhone, adding, “Dad, Apple is old.” Considering that my mother switched to the iPhone, my kid may have a point.
Tech related ETF like the PowerShares QQQ (NasdaqGM: QQQ) have been weighed down by their large weighting toward AAPL.
ETF investors can gain exposure to Samsung through international ETFs:
- iShares MSCI South Korea Index (NYSEArca: EWY): Samsung is 21.4%
- iShares MSCI AC Asia Information Tech (NYSEArca: AAIT): Samsung is 19.6%
- iShares S&P Asia 50 Index (NYSEArca: AIA): Samsung is 14.2%
