Volatilty Returns

Monday, May 17, 2021 – U.S. equity indexes jumped sharply on Friday but fell short of eclipsing the overall losses for the week as volatility reared its head in a tumultuous trading week. Growing inflation fears were balanced by investors’ mild reaction to the weaker-than-expected April retail sales report.

For the week, the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 1.1% to 34,382, the NASDAQ Composite Index dropped 2.3% to 13,430 and the S&P 500 Index lost 1.4% to close the week at 4,174.

ETFG Quant Movers - Those ETFs who have had the largest weekly change in their ETFG Quant Total Scores

ETFG Weekly Quant Winners: The three biggest gainers in their ETFG Total Quant Scores were the Franklin FTSE Japan ETF (FLJP) up 12.14 points to 49.51, the iShares Currency Hedged JPX-Nikkei 400 ETF (HJPX) up 10.44 points to 46.53 and the First Trust RiverFront Dynamic Asia Pacific ETF (RFAP) up 10.32 points in its ETFG Quant Total Score to 43.70.

ETFG Weekly Quant Losers: The three biggest losers in their respective ETF Quant Total Scores were the Principal Spectrum Preferred Securities Active ETF (PREF) down 11.49 points to 32,29, the Global SuperDividend US ETF (DIV) down 8.45 points to 45.48 and the iShares MSCI New Zealand ETF (ENZL) down 7.91 points to an ETFG Quant Total Score of 29.54.

Movement Below the Water Line

Monday, May 3, 2021 – Another week passed with little movement in the overall domestic, equity indexes, as investors appeared to take in stride a variety of significant occurrences and announcements.  On the domestic policy front, the Biden Administration advocated their position for higher taxes with initiatives that included infrastructure spending and family-focused programs. The 1Q 2021 Gross Domestic Product data reflected a whopping 6.4% annualized growth rate but came in slightly below the 6.5% expectation, leaving the markets primarily without major impact.

Even positive earnings reports that reflected big growth from the three largest companies (AAPL, MSFT & AMZN) didn’t seem to move the needle, despite their respective substantial growth numbers. Given the disproportionate weighting of these big companies within the respective indexes like the S&P 500, it’s easy to see the lack of movement in the overall markets.

For the week, the DJIA finished down 0.5% to 33,874.85, the S&P 500 finished up one point (0.02%) to 4,181.17 and the Nasdaq fell 0.4% to 13,962.68.

ETFG Quant Movers - Those ETFs who have had the largest weekly change in their ETFG Quant Total Scores.

ETFG Weekly Quant Winners: The three biggest gainers in their ETFG Total Quant Scores were the Invesco S&P SmallCap Utilities ETF (PSCU) which added 15.71 points to 56.56, the Global X Gold Explorers ETF (GOEX) which gained 13.13 points to 42.25 and the VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF (ESPO) which added 11.32 to its ETFG Overall Quant Score of 50.35.

ETFG Weekly Quant Losers: The three biggest losers in their respective ETF Quant Total Scores were the SPDR S&P MidCap 400 ETF Trust (MDY) which dropped 12.36 points to 36.94, the Principal Spectrum Preferred Securities Active ETF (PREF) which lost 10.03 points to 34.98 and the Innovator S&P Investment Grade Preferred ETF (EPRF) which dropped 9.46 points to an ETFG Quant Overall Score of 35.18.

A Rare, Recent Pause

Monday, April 26, 2021 – After alternating between gains and losses, stocks edged lower following a week of mixed sentiment. Stocks tumbled to start the week, as investors cautiously approached upcoming earnings announcements from a number of bellwether companies. High valuations combined with surging global coronavirus cases created a general sense of unease as the path towards a quick economic rebound became clouded. While positive economic data helped stage a mid-week rebound, reports on Thursday that the Biden administration is mulling a sharp capital-gains tax increase helped trigger the market's worst sell-off since March.

These jitters, however, were quickly reversed on Friday after encouraging economic data helped buoy sentiment and put the major market indexes within striking distance of their records. This end-of-week rally was sparked by key data releases, like IHS Markit's services sector and manufacturing surveys showing record expansions, a surge in monthly new home sales, and robust earnings from cyclical companies. Friday's rally sharply minimized losses for the week, with the Nasdaq, S&P 500, and DJIA finishing down just 0.3%, 0.1%, and 0.5% respectively.

ETFG Quant Movers - Those ETFs who have had the largest weekly change in their ETFG Quant Total Scores.

ETFG Weekly Quant Winners: The three biggest gainers in their ETFG Total Quant Scores were the Vanguard Russell 1000 Value (VONV) which added 23.13 points to 55.69, the Vanguard Russell 1000 Growth ETF (VONG) which gained 22.67 points to 62.62 and the Vanguard Russell 2000 (VTWO) which picked up 22.51 points to close the week with an ETFG Quant Total Score of 61.03.

ETFG Weekly Quant Losers: The three biggest losers in their respective ETF Quant Total Scores were the SPDR Wells Fargo Preferred Stock ETF (PSK) which lost 13.82 points to 40.10, the Credit Suisse X-Links Gold Shares Covered Call ETN (GLDI) dropping 12.40 points to 43.11 and the iShares International Preferred Stock ETF (IPFF) losing 8.77 points to 44.75.
