Dizzy from all the ETF choices? Jeffrey Kosnett can help -- the Kiplinger's senior editor offered CNBC his top five exchange-traded fund names.
PowerShares Dynamic Large Cap: Through a selective "winnowing-out process," this fund picks 100 stocks, offering "the same diversification you get with the S&P 500 -- but a much better selection."
Vanguard Extended Market Index ETF: Kosnett's small-cap choice consists of "3,000 mid- and small-caps for maximum exposure."
His other three ETF picks:
- WisdomTree Total Dividend
- Rydex S&P Equal Weight Healthcare
- SPDR/FTSE Macquarie Global Infrastructure 100
