Tech ETF for Growth, Shelter: IGV

Oracle stepped up to the plate with its own report following Tuesday's closing bell. Looking to this morning, it will be interesting to see how investors respond.

Red Hat and Oracle are just two of the household names comprising the fund's leading line up. Other names include Microsoft (MSFT), Intuit (INTU), Salesforce.com (CRM) and Adobe (ADBE).

As I've explained on a number of occasions, maintaining a strong line of defense is essential for navigating this choppy market environment. Going overboard, however, can result in detrimental consequences. With looming concerns barraging investors at all sides, safe havens have become increasingly attractive. Those who opt to dive for cover during the final days of the year, however, will be left poorly positioned in the event that strength shines through.

Setting aside a small slice of a portfolio to an ETF like IGV can allow an investor to maintain exposure to the growth-linked tech sector, while maintaining a certain element of protection.
