44 “Drone Stocks” in the Drone Economy Strategy ETF
The consumer drones that you see whizzing around the skies these days are essentially flying robots that do stuff like video things, deliver things, or even race other drones. Robotics investors have taken notice of this and are now looking for ways to get exposure to commercial and consumer drones by investing in drone stocks. In the past, drones tended to conjure up images of military strike newscasts in third world countries, places far away where war is taking place while we try and struggle through all our first world problems. Nowadays, mention of drones is likely to remind us of our recent picnic in the park, with that nerdy looking guy in the background brandishing a remote and providing that whirring background noise with his new toy. This basically sums up the two important sub-sectors where drones are present: military and consumer/commercial. These are two entirely different segments. One gives you exposure to defense stocks, and the other to new drone technologies.
