Motifs are similar to Exchange Traded Funds, but any investor can create them. An investor can choose the stocks they want for the Motif portfolio, or even better, the investor can invest in the Motifs created by others for a low commission rate. I have created many motifs that are available for anyone to invest in, a few of which are up over 100% since inception.
Here are some of the motifs I created and the returns since inception (created about a couple years ago). You will notice that some are up over 100%.
Anti-Crime Stocks +37.0%
Liquid Biopsy Stocks +227.9%
Stem Cell Stocks +344.0%
Firearms Stocks +12.9%
Gisele Bundchen Stocks +41.1%
Water Desalination +36.7%
Drone Stocks +53.3%
Cuba Stocks +23.1%
Puerto Rico Stocks +88.3% (in spite of the hurricane)
Marijuana Cannabis Stocks +81.3%
Horse Race Stocks +74.1%
Cosmetic Surgery Stocks +168.8%
Beer Stocks +29.2%
Wine and Liquor Stocks +22.5%
Virtual Reality Stocks Over $5 +25.5%
Virtual & Augmented Reality Stocks +56.3%%
If you are searching for specific industries to invest in, Motifs might be the way to go.

First, this is not a political article. Because so many people have so many strong feelings about guns and how they should be regulated, it would be helpful to know what the companies are that are involved in the production of guns, firearm accessories, and ammunition.
Once you know, you can decide whether or not you want to include or exclude them from your portfolio. You can also check the list of firearms companies against the shareholdings of any ETFs or mutual funds you might own.
There are actually over half a dozen publicly traded companies involved in this industry. For example, American Outdoor Brands (AOBC), based in Massachusetts, produces the Smith & Wesson brand of firearms. The stock trades at a low 7.7 times forward earnings, and also a very favorable 0.73 price to sales ratio.
Vista Outdoor (VSTO), a Utah company, manufactures the Savage Arms guns, and also makes Federal Premium ammunition. The stock has a forward price to earnings ratio of 17.7, and a very low P/S ratio of 0.39.
