  • Interesting to see that our models continue to highlight US small-cap ETFs as some of the most attractive ETFs within our 3,000+ fund universe. This is despite US small-cap stocks outperforming their US large-cap counterparts with the Russell 2000 Index up 19.76% YTD and the S&P 500 Index up 16.98% YTD, as of Monday’s close.
     
  • As was the case last week, the Quantamize models see opportunity within small-cap value stocks, as demonstrated by the SPDR S&P 600 Small-Cap Value ETF’s (SLYV) “Best” ETF Smart Beta Rating “BUY” Trading Signal.
     
  • Curious to see our models highlight opportunity in China with the iShares China Large-Cap ETF (FXI) being highlighted as a top ETF idea above. During the end of last week and the beginning of this week, investors sold off stocks with exposure to China as trade war angst moved to the forefront of investor concerns amid setback in US-China trade negotiations.
     
  • If you think the weakness in stocks with Chinese exposure is overblown, it may be worth considering the FXI.
