Which is better? It depends what you’re looking for
To a large extent, whether it’s better to own Apple stock or a Nasdaq fund will come down to your personal risk tolerance and what you’re looking for as an investor. Apple has many strengths and doesn’t look to be a high-risk stock, but it’s much more likely to see bigger swings — for better or worse. On the other hand, the technology sector will continue to be a driving force in the overall market growth in the decades to come, and the combination of strong growth potential and diversification adds to the appeal of owning an ETF that tracks the Nasdaq.
Investors looking to capitalize on the transformative power of technology will likely be well served by investing in either Apple or Fidelity’s Nasdaq Composite ETF. Those prioritizing higher growth potential will likely want to go with Apple, while those seeking lower risk will likely find the ETF a better vehicle for their goals.
