  • Investors appear to be buying US large-cap stocks ahead of earnings season as the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) is the top ETF in terms of 1-week fund flow in our 3,000+ ETF coverage universe -- SPY is also the top ETF in terms of 1-day fund flow with more than $2.1 billion flowing into S&P 500 ETF yesterday. Today is considered to be the unofficial start of Q1 earnings with Delta (DAL) reporting financials pre-market. For a comprehensive preview of US large-cap earnings season, check out, "As the 1Q Earnings Train Barrels Towards Us, We Take a Quick Look at Expectations"
  • Positive flows also continued into the Invesco QQQ Trust (QQQ) yesterday with more than USD$100 million moving into the popular tech ETF. With nearly $2.3 billion of positive inflows for QQQ over the past 5 days alone, investors really appear to be favoring large-cap tech heading into earnings. Right now, the Invesco QQQ Trust has a “Sell” trading signal and a "Poor" Smart Beta Rating.
