Minor Moves

Monday, June 7, 2021 – With a holiday shortened week, the three major, U.S. equity indices managed minor gains last week. The DJIA was up 227 points (.7%) to 34,756, the S&P 500 gained 26 points (.6%) to 4,230 and the Nasdaq picked up 66 points (.5%) to close the week at 13,815.

With a quiet start to the week, the Energy sector lead the way as the price of oil rallied to its highest level since mid-October 2018. Sectors like technology, communication services, and consumer discretionary felt pressure as the market reacted to a weaker than expected Employment report for May. On the economic front, the G-7 neared an agreement on a 15% global minimum corporate tax as the Biden administration further negotiated an infrastructure spending package with Republicans.

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

ETFG Weekly Quant Winners: The Invesco Dynamic Leisure and Entertainment ETF (PEJ) gained a whopping 41.71 points to 96.27, the ETRACS Alerian MLP Index ETN Series B (AMUB) gained 14.57 points to 58.21 and the Barclays ETN+ Select MLP ETNs (ATMP) added 14.51 points to an ETFG Total Quant Score of 55.93.

ETFG Weekly Quant Losers: The ARK Genomic Revolution Multi-Sector ETF (ARKG) dropped 11.09 points to 44.37, the Schwab US Small-Cap ETF (SCHA) dropped 9.44 points to 33.49 and the Oppenheimer S&P SmallCap 600 Revenue ETF (RWJ) lost 7.65 points to an ETFG Quant Total Score of 52.27.

Little Movement For The Week

Monday, May 24, 2021 – Growth and value stocks seemed to battle it out last week leaving the major U.S. equity indexes with mixed and minor overall movements. A deceleration in housing starts and existing home sales from April did little to move markets as investors appeared more focused on upcoming reports.

Perhaps the biggest headlines and market movements centered around the big sell off in cryptocurrency. The yield on the 10 Year Treasury remained steady decreasing just one basis point to 1.63% seemingly indicating a lack of concern around inflation.

For the week, the DJIA dropped 174.29 points to 34,207.84, the Nasdaq was the single gainer for the week picking up 41.01 points to 13,470.99 and the S&P 500 slipped 17.99 points to 4,155.86.

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 iShares US Preferred Stock ETF (PFF) which gained 12.80 point to 53.75, the Principal Spectrum Preferred Securities Active ETF (PREF) which picked up 10.31 points to 42.60 and the ProShares Decline of the Retail Store ETF (EMTY) which added 9.40 to an Overall ETFG Quant Score of 52.72.

ETFG Weekly Quant Losers: The three biggest losers in their respective ETF Quant Total Scores were the ALPS Equal Sector Weight ETF (EQL) which lost 10.96 point to 39.44, the iShares Currency Hedged MSCI Japan ETF (HEWJ) which dropped 9.21 point to 32.55 and the iPath S&P MLP ETN (IMLP) which lost 7.85 point to an ETFG Quant Overall Score of 47.72.
