What ETFs Really Offer

I am not being facetious but am real curious about what other, more experienced, investors think of this article:

I think he is right. There may be other things ETFs also offer, but the two he mentions are real, and helpful. The concept of tax overhang in particualar. I didn't go to Morningstar to check his assertion that ETFs have little of that; but I know that many mutual funds have lot of it.

I think that he is right. It's a pretty generic article, but I suppose he captures what investors truly care about: the ease of the funds as well as the tax advantages.

ETFs are a large part of my business these days...........
Consult with your own advisor or representative. My thoughts should not be construed as investment advice. Past performance is no guarantee of future results (love that one).......:)

This Thread is USELESS without pics.........:)
