  • Wow, US small-cap stocks still look attractive according to the Quantamize models with 6 of the 8 top ETF ideas highlighted above maintaining a small-cap exposure focus! Our models have highlighted opportunity in US small-caps for the last 4 weeks, and perhaps investors are beginning to pick up the sent. Over the last week, the iShares Russell 2000 ETF (IWM) has received positive fund flows of nearly $1 billion!
  • Worth highlighting that our models also specifically highlight a value focus in US small-caps with the iShares Russell 2000 Value ETF (IWN) being highlighted above.
     
  • The Quantamize models are also highlighting opportunity in US large-caps and China large-caps, likely as a result of the pullback in large-cap stocks in both regions due to increased tension in trade negotiations. For an in-depth breakdown of US-China trade negotiations, check out our post from yesterday, “Are Rare Earth Metals China’s Next Weapon to Deploy in the Trade War?” 
  • The Invesco S&P 500 Equal Weight ETF (RSP) has a “BUY” trading signal and a “Best” Smart Beta rating.
  • The iShares China Large-Cap ETF (FXI) has a “BUY” trading signal and a “Best” Smart Beta rating.
