The much ballyhooed Alibaba initial public offering is about a month away and that anticipation is stoking searches of the ETFs that will eventually house the stock. Unfortunately for investors, that number is rather small.
The good news there are a few credible options that will certainly hold Alibaba, including the KraneShares CSI China Internet Fund (NasdaqGM: KWEB) and the KraneShares CSI China Five Year Plan ETF (NYSEArca: KFYP).
Shares of KWEB are up 9.5% in the past month, underscoring the enthusiasm investors have Chinese Internet stocks even before Alibaba’s IPO. KFYP is up nearly 17% in the past 90 days, highlighting the fund’s status as one of the better China ETFs they are not yet familiar with. Both ETFs have the ability to add Alibaba within 11 days of its IPO. [Alibaba Will be in This ETF]
