Country-specific ETFs, and stocks from Wendy’s to Columbia

It’s another bumper week of new additions, so let’s dive right in.

28 brand new ETFs

Always highly-requested by the community, ETFs are a great way to diversify your investments.

And it turns out there are a lot of them.

This week, we’ve added over 30 brand new ETFs to your app, including some which offer exposure to companies in various countries:

  • HSBC MSCI Brazil, Poland, Korea, India, Turkey
  • iShares MSCI Eastern Europe — £IEER
  • L&G Cyber Security — £ISPY
  • iShares Diversified Commodity Swap — £COMM

US stocks, global brand names

Here are some household names in entertainment, food & drink:

  • Six Flags $SIX — It may play second fiddle to Disney, but Six Flags is the biggest ‘regional theme park’ company in the world, hosting 30m visitors across its 25 parks last year
  • Caesars $CZR — It’s featured in a Hollywood movie or two, and it’s open for business following a COVID-19 lockdown.
  • Wendy's $WEN — With 6,700 locations, Wendy’s is the world’s third-largest burger chain, behind only you-know-who and you-know-who. 
  • Boston Beer $SAM — Maker of Samuel Adams beer, hence the ticker.

Sportswear and health stocks

  • Columbia Sportswear $COLM — The iconic outerwear brand, founded in 1938 in Portland by a German couple who had arrived in the US after fleeing Nazi Germany.
  • Callaway Golf $ELF — This golf apparel veteran sells gear to over 70 countries worldwide. We know what you’re thinking: why $ELF and not $GOLF? Acushnet Holdings is the proud owner of that ticker. 🏌️♀️
  • Dick’s Sporting Goods $DKS — An emporium of sporting and outdoor gear in the US, it employs 30,000 people across 850 stores.
  • Herbalife $HLF — Remember when David Beckham played for LA Galaxy? Herbalife Nutrition were the shirt sponsors. Herbalife also hit the headlines in 2019 after Pershing Square Capital, led by investor Bill Ackman, ended its five-year bet on its stock price reaching zero.
