Investing in Israel ADRs / Israeli Stocks List
A list of Israel ADRs trading on the NYSE, Nasdaq and the OTC is dominated by a large number of technology stocks along with a noticeable smattering of pharmaceutical/biotech and defense names. However, rising anti-Israel feelings has some Israeli ADRs, stocks or companies in general distancing themselves or trying to be as discreet as possible (e.g. they maintain an overseas headquarters – often in the United States) about their ties to Israel – especially if most of their revenues are derived globally. For example: Sodastream International Ltd (NASDAQ: SODA), the makers of a popular consumer home carbonation product that’s also manufactured in Israel, has been the subject of boycotts or calls to be boycotted. In addition to Israel ADRs, the Aberdeen Israel Fund Inc (NYSEMKT: ISL) is an Israel closed-end fund plus our Israel ETF list contains a couple of ETF options. Finally, investors should check out Middle East/Africa ETF list, Middle East ETF list and Middle East ETF Region Wide lists as some region wide ETFs might also invest in Israeli stocks.
Note: If there are any ADRs to add or remove from this list or there are bad links, please write a note in the comments section so it can be fixed. Likewise, adding any other comments or advice would also be appreciated.
