Etf Investors Start Sniffing For Value In High Yield - Nasdaq.com

Such is the fickle and counterintuitive nature of market psychology. The risk of interest rates rising from their 52-week lows established in January is now a very real threat to many fixed-income portfolios. That is not to say that you should immediately abandon bonds altogether they still play a vital role in a balanced asset allocation structure. Rather, it may make sense to start sniffing out area with less interest rate risk or other attractive characteristics.

Exchange traded funds (ETFs) trade just like stocks, but instead of ''shares'' investors are actually buying and selling ''units''. These ''units'' can be traded back and forth just like stocks, but can also be created or destroyed to accommodate investor demand. Each week we monitor the week-over-week change in shares outstanding data, to keep a lookout for those ETFs experiencing notable inflows (many new units created) or outflows (many old units destroyed). Creation of new units will mean the underlying holdings of the ETF need to be purchased, while destruction of units involves selling underlying holdings, so large flows can also impact the individual components held within ETFs.
