Best ASX ETFs Stocks To Consider In September 2021
The recent correction on the broad market could be an opportunity to seize to add up some of the best performing ETFs. Let’s dive into it.
BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (ASX: HACK)
Hackers have been active on the internet since the earliest days. That’s led to a range of new business opportunities for companies working to safeguard our digital information.
These days, the business of securing internet data from malicious attacks is worth tens of billions of dollars annually. And this market is expanding tremendously.
Consequently, this growing need saw the launch of the Betashares Global Cybersecurity ETF in September 2016. Since then, this ETF has doubled its valuation, from its inception at about $5 to $10.39 as of today.
HACK is what we categorise as an exchange-traded fund or abbreviated by ETF. ETF has the particularity to be like a mutual fund, although it has the convenience to be tradeable as a stock. The HACK ETF offers ASX investors exposure to 39 leading global cyber security shares. The fund’s top holdings include:
- Zscaler (ASX: ZS)
- Crowdstrike Holdings (NASDAQ: CRWD)
- Accenture (NYSE: ACN)
- and Cisco Systems. (NASDAQ: CSCO)
However, it is important to note that this ETF does not hold any ASX shares. Well, that is because for now, the market caps of the Aussie cybersecurity shares are still too small to belong to the HACK ETF.
In terms of performance, HACK has had a strong run over the past 12 months. We have been surprised to see the ETF gaining more than 43%. In comparison, the ASX 200 returned 26.57% over the same period.
HACK has continued to outperform the index this year and is up 5.70% over the past month.
VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF (AMEX: MOAT)
If you are wishing to add some diversification to your portfolio, then you might want to look at this exchange-traded fund. The MOAT ETF gives investors access to a “pre-packaged” diversified portfolio of 48 attractively priced US companies. What we like about this fund is its asset selection. Hence, the MOAT ETF has an assortment of stocks deemed to have sustainable competitive advantages or moats.
Warren Buffett is investing in companies with moats. Thus, given his long-term investment success, it certainly could be worth following his lead.
Among the 48 shares included in the fund are some of the most well-known companies in the world. This includes:
- Alphabet (NASDAQ: GOOG)
- Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN)
- Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO)
- Intel (NASDAQ: INTC)
- Kellogg’s (NYSE: K)
- McDonald’s (NYSE: MCD)
- Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT)

Over the last decade, this ETF has generated an impressive average return of 22.6% per annum.
