VETS ETF crushes the competition with a 33% gain this year. As thematic investment strategies go, a fund that invests in companies that support military personnel and their families could seem like a stretch — until you check its performance. The Pacer Military Times Best Employer ETF (VETS) is up more than 33% so far this year, which compares to the S&P 500 Index’s 23% gain over the same period. The VETS exchange-traded fund, offered by Pacer ETFs Distributors, tracks an equally weighted index of U.S.-listed companies that support the employment of military veterans, service members and their families.
Military Times just launched our latest Best for Vets: Employers survey, which evaluates companies based on their culture, policies for military-connected employees and resources they devote to hiring veterans. The survey is open to for-profit companies, nonprofit organizations and government agencies — but only the best will make the cut and be named “Best for Vets”.
The time has come to honor and thank military veterans and gratitude is being extended in many ways. Veterans Day observation is replete with parade and salute to service, vets’ freebies and meal deals as well as job creations. Many companies recruit U.S. veterans and deploy their skillset in profit maximization. Read the entire feature from Zacks.

Although Veterans Days is only one day a year, there are ETFs that can honor our Vets throughout the year, and we want to remind investors that aligning principles with principal can provide for the best outcome. With this in mind, we highlight three subjects.
