  • VettaFi Voices On: Q1 2023 Earnings Season's Winners and Losers

    ETF Database - 05/12/2023

    Market watchers have closely watched the Q1 2023 earnings season, seeking the first domino to fall in a looming recession. That hasn’t happened — yet. However, earnings still have plenty to tell us. This week, the VettaFi Voices gathered around the water cooler to sift through earnings results and look for clues about the remainder of this year.

  • Industrial ETFs: From Ground to Space

    ETF Database - 04/27/2023

    While I’ve recently discussed what is driving outperformance in the consumer discretionary sector and the communications sector, the industrial sector has recently looked more interesting. This past week, aerospace and defense companies like Raytheon Technologies (RTX) and Lockheed Martin (LMT) have beat on earnings results with better-than-expected revenues which they attribute to higher air travel demand, defense systems demand, and easing of supply chains. While Raytheon and Lockheed Martin are some of the largest companies within the industrials sector. The sector is much more diversified than just aerospace and defense companies. The industrial sector also includes companies involved in manufacturing, construction, transportation, and machinery which are often large-cap stocks and leading indicators for the economy. This note takes a look at some of the largest industrial ETFs, what’s inside, and other thematic alternatives for investors.

  • Go Deep on Equal Weight ETF, SPY Competitor

    ETF Database - 04/26/2023

    One of the big stories so far this year for the markets has been the somewhat striking performance of the S&P 500. Pulled forward by some of the biggest tech names, the lead index, and its attached ETF, the SPDR S&P 500 Trust ETF (SPY A) has proved to be a durable performer despite a series of volatility events tied to banks, rate hikes, and more. That said, it may be worth looking to an equal-weight ETF that has been outperforming SPY over the last month for a potentially better-diversified alternative.

  • March Punctuates Uneven First Quarter for ETF Flows

  • While Financials Are in Focus, Many ETFs Differ

    ETF Database - 03/27/2023

    Though financials are 13% of the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY A), roughly half the size of the information technology sector, it has been the focus throughout March. Between the regional bank failures, the efforts by the government and larger banks to restore confidence including increased borrowing from the Federal Reserve’s discount window, the impact from the Fed’s latest rate hike, and the GICS changes that reduced the sector’s dependence on banks, there’s a lot going on.  

  • This New Bank ETF Could Throw Its Weight Around Early

    ETF Database - 03/21/2023

    It seems like every day a new ETF launches, but 30 years in, it’s only rarely that one makes me say “yes, this makes sense, and I can see how the ETF could fit into a broader portfolio.” But the Roundhill Big Bank ETF (BIGB ) (covered here) is one of those funds — and no, this is not a recommendation to purchase it, but an attempt to put the fund in perspective.  

  • VettaFi Voices On: Banks in Danger

    ETF Database - 03/17/2023

    It’s not hard to guess what the hot watercooler talk was this week: the regional banking crisis. Today, the VettaFi Voices weighed in on the risk of contagion, what impact it might have on the Fed’s rate policy, and what it all means for the rest of the market and banking ETFs writ large.
