Tracey Ryniec, the host and a Zacks stock strategist, will be joined by guests every week to talk about the hottest investing topics in stocks,

bonds, and ETFs and how they affect your life. This week, Tracey is going to talk about how investing in stocks with small amounts of money can really add up.

And there are more investing apps than ever before that let you start investing with little money. One of these is the acorn. It's an app for investing that helps you save and invest your extra money.

They have a feature called "round-ups" that automatically puts any extra money into an ETF portfolio with a wide range of investments.

If you buy a cup of coffee for $3.35, you can tell the app to round it up to $4.00 and invest the extra money. But if that's not enough for you and you think you can do more,

you can make recurring investments starting at just $5 a day, or you can do it weekly or monthly. $5 a day might not seem like much, but if you stick with it,

even when the stock market goes up and down, the little amounts can really add up. Putting money into a group of ETFs

Acorns uses ETFs to build portfolios for you based on your goals and risk tolerance. Simple index ETFs with low fees are what the stock ETFs are.

Here are a few ETFs that investors can use to put together their own baskets. Vanguard S&P 500 Index ETF (VOO).

One of the most popular ETFs on the market is the Vanguard S&P 500 Index ETF. It has a low expense ratio of just 0.03%, so Tracey has it in her own portfolio.

The Vanguard S&P 500 Index ETF is down 12.4% so far this year, but its annualised return over the past 5 years is 12.79%. It gives dividends, giving a return of 1.6%.

You don't need an Acorn account to put money into it. The Vanguard S&P 500 Index ETF is available at the majority of major brokerages.

iShares S&P Small Cap ETF (IJR) The iShares S&P Small Cap ETF is a simple small cap fund with 679 holdings. Even though it's not a value fund, its average price-to-earnings ratio is 13.6.

The iShares S&P Small Cap ETF is down 10.3% so far this year, but it has a 7.2% annualised return over the last 5 years. It only costs 0.06% of what it makes.
