Personally i will never make investments based around war on moral grounds, but for those who fancy their chances these could be winners for you ?

Plus you need to consider the implications for Oil…

Are there anymore stocks out there to consider ? - answers on a postcard :slight_smile:

I am glad that there are still people out there that do consider the moral side. I have nothing against anyone who wants to invest in these companies and it is their money. It just makes me realise how far we have come and killing of thousands in a matter of seconds by pushing a button. It has taken away so much of the human emotion, doing it all cowardly thousands of miles away. There is no winner in any war apart from these companies that manufacture it.

Typically when you fight for something (for example land) the winner walks away with what they want (in this example, land) so there’s definitely a winner, but I’m not sure what side of the morals people want to be on. It’s their choice of course

Personally, the war is going to happen regardless of investing in these companies, so I will invest to make a return on my investment

@Byron agreed and most peoples ETF’s will contain a portion of these types of companies anyway oil/weapon manufacturers etc. Even financial institutions who lend the money to them (or banks that skirt around sanctions like in WWII) if you wanna go that deep. So if you want to avoid any “immoral” companies don’t invest in ETF’s and just buy companies. Not very good investment advice though

You can consider cybersecurity firms in a conflict scenario. FireEye and Cyberark were up on Friday.

There are a bunch of ethical-investment ETFs, but I don’t what’s available given the EU KID regulations.

All I’ve done in reaction to the news was to take some money out on Friday, not much though. Hard to tell what’s going on.
