Robotics and automation ETF

It goes without saying that the market for robots and automation is standing on the brick of a real growth explosion. But, as almost always is the case with these new industries, the market always grows a little bit slower than expected. 

The first phase of a new industry is when new companies are established or new divisions aimed at the new market are put into life. In this phase they operate a bit under the radar.

The second phase is when the market sees its potential and everyone is jumping on the stocks of these companies making stock prices go through the ceiling. I myself think that we have seen these 2 phases now.

The next phase will be when heavy corrections may occur. It will be difficult to determine the bottom of this correction but that will be the real challenge here. After bottoming out of prices we are set for years of steady growth is my belief.

Robo-Stox Global Robotics and Automation index ETF

This Robo-Stox Robotics and Automation ETF is tracking its own Global Robotics and Automation index. Within this particular ETF you will find 85 global robotics and automation companies.

I have sifted through the list of companies included in this global robotics and automation ETF and I must confess that I do not know a single one of them. What is striking though is that they all are weighed almost evenly (a share of 1% to 2 % each).

Looking at its geographical spread we do see some differences. With a 40% share the US dominates this ETF followed by usual suspect Japan with a 25% share, Then European countries follow with a 20% share.
