3 Sector ETFs To Play Ahead Of Alphabet, Disney Earnings

John Hancock Multifactor Media and Communications ETF (JHCS)

The John Hancock Multifactor Media and Communications ETF JHCS is an alternative to cap-weighted communication services ETFs like XLC. It's a smart beta fund that emphasizes factors such as smaller size, lower relative prices and higher profitability in constructing its portfolio.

While JHCS isn't a cap-weighted fund, its 10 holdings are dominated by the likes of Facebook, Disney and Alphabet. In fact, the ETF's 5.56% weight to Disney is among the largest to that stock among ETFs. Combined, Alphabet and Disney represent about 12.55% of this fund's weight.

Fidelity MSCI Telecommunication Services ETF (FCOM)

The Fidelity MSCI Telecommunication Services ETF FCOM is similar to the aforementioned XLC, but there are some important differences. For short-term traders, XLC is the preferred option due to better volume, tighter spreads and a more robust options chain. For long-term investors, the Fidelity product is perhaps the better option because its expense ratio of 0.0840% is below XLC's 0.13%.

Like its SPDR rival, FCOM features substantial Alphabet and Disney exposure as those companies combine for about 27.41% of this ETF's roster.
