ETF Deathwatch For July 2018

SeekingAlpha

By Daniel Rangel

For the month of July, the ETF Deathwatch listing elevated with the addition of 20 exchange-traded merchandise (ETPs) and the removing of 14. Of the removals, solely three have been on account of asset managers closing their funds, whereas the remaining 11 have been eliminated as a consequence of elevated well being. There have been no main purges of funds this month, as we have seen prior to now. Summer time is usually a comparatively quiet season for the financial-services business. The three funds that have been closed have been ETFs, and just one addition was an ETN. This can be a typical profile between ETFs and ETNs, so there isn’t any main takeaway as to market appetites for danger this month.

ETFs and ETNs lower than 6 months of age will not be thought-about for the ETF Deathwatch listing. New ETFs and ETNs want time to draw consideration from buyers and achieve momentum, so we contemplate their first 6 months an “incubation period.” For July, 11 of latest additions to the listing have been younger funds. Nevertheless, six of the brand new additions have been greater than 5 years previous, which is a very dangerous signal for these funds because it signifies declining curiosity in a longtime product. With out exception, every of those six belonged both to the Rising Markets or Leveraged classes. This isn’t a lot of a shock as rising markets have suffered of late, and curiosity in leveraged merchandise has already been waning as a secular business development.

The one fund that seems misplaced on this listing is the iShares U.S. Dividend and Buyback ETF (BATS:DIVB). It belongs neither to asset courses which might be struggling industrywide nor new funds which are nonetheless choosing up curiosity. It’s nonetheless a comparatively new fund, at solely 9 months previous; nevertheless, it has barely underperformed different funds within the high-dividend area. It stays to be seen whether or not this fund’s returns will justify its existence. Warning is suggested.

The yr started with some sluggish fund flows into fairness funds. The second and third quarters have seen some minor motion out of those funds, whereas, for probably the most half, fixed-income funds have seen constructive inflows general. These fund flows weren’t excessive, nevertheless it would not be shocking to see the Deathwatch additions dominated by fairness funds within the coming months as buyers weigh the present market dangers that go together with the present geopolitical surroundings. As of now, nothing vital is usually recommended by the info, however warning could also be suggested when utilizing financially “creative” fairness merchandise in the intervening time.
