The Newest Fans Of Cybersecurity Investing

And the irony of ironies is that the SEC’s EDGAR system — where companies electronically file their various agency-required filings — was itself successfully (if only briefly) attacked by hackers just a few months ago.

The exploit “resulted in access to nonpublic information” that “may have provided the basis for illicit gain though trading.”

It’s all the more reason to put a portion of your money to work in cybersecurity investing.

In my portfolio, I have six undervalued cybersecurity stocks that are up as much as 15% in just the past few months, with more gains still on tap.

And since I started suggesting this as an investing focus to Winning Investor Daily readers in mid-August, the two exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that track this sector, the ETFMG Prime Cyber Security ETF (NYSE: HACK) and the First Trust Nasdaq CEA Cybersecurity ETF (Nasdaq: CIBRare both up as much as 10%.

Last month, Pensions & Investments noted that its many sources at retirement plans and money management firms were taking a new view of the cybersecurity sector: “Cybersecurity is moving up the agenda for institutional investors and their money managers as a responsible investment consideration, as several high-profile attacks and breaches bring the issue to the front of investors’ minds.”

Translation? It’s likely a lot more money — big money — may pour into the cybersecurity investing arena as fund managers look around for stocks that aren’t already at peak prices and could still grow profits at a faster clip than the overall market.
