Focus On Stocks That Are Not On The ETFs Radars

In a recent interview with MarketWatch, Jim Rogers urges investors to focus on stocks that are not on the exchange traded funds (ETFs) radars: 

“If somebody can just take the time to focus on the stocks that are not in the ETFs, there must be fabulous opportunities in those stocks because they’re ignored. Some of them have got to be doing very, very well. And nobody’s buying them, because only the ETFs buy stocks.”
