Online retail is continuing to fundamentally disrupt the retail sector. Even with years of strong growth, the e-commerce revolution is likely still in the early stages.
Not all online retailers are created equal. Bigger players are likely to have the capital to grow and adapt.
ProShares Online Retail ETF (ONLN) gives access to the e-commerce opportunity in a single ETF.
