hi coaches,  HACK, bUG, CIBR are in my watchlist. it is unfortunate that Vi has no infos on ETFs as yet. Recent study shows the following: 
HACK has 57 holdings, and costs 0.60% in expense ratio, or $60 per $10,000 invested.
CIBR, launched almost a year after HACK, in 2015, for the same price tag of 0.60%, is today the biggest cybersecurity ETF, with $1.8 billion in total assets. Daily trading volume averages more than $14 million. its 10% tied to communications companies; 10% tied to aerospace and defense as well as semiconductors; and it also owns some equipment names. Top holdings include CrowdStrike (CRWD), Splunk (SPLK) and Cisco.
BUG is a very small portfolio, with only 29 stocks and a weighted average market capitalization of just over $8 billion.
If you will to choose, which one of the above is most profitable?

Hi Joy,
When looking at ETF, you need to see the past performance of those three ETFs. Hence, BUG with only about 1 years of track record should be out. 
Next is you need to be comfortable with their top holding in the ETF. In this case, it should be based on your own personal preference.
