Funds With Benefits: ETFs That Track A Major Index For You

ETFs hedge some of the risk of investing in single stocks, and they provide an often easier way to capitalize off of trends that you don't necessarily know much about. For instance, someone without industry expertise could buy an ETF that traded oil and gas stocks, and perhaps feel more confident that their investment will grow, assuming they were right about oil in the first place. 

So do you see investing opportunities in these ETFs that track a major index? Use the list below to begin your own analysis. 

1. iShares Core S&P 500 ( IVV): Seeks to track the investment results of an index composed of large-capitalization U.S. equities. Market cap at $23.70B, most recent closing price at $180.35.
