  • The SPDR S&P Dividend ETF (SDY) is the highest ranked fund in terms of 1-day fund flow among our universe of 3,000+ ETFs as US equities continued their robust 2019 bull run and closed notably higher on Friday. Fears are growing that the 2019 US equity rally could soon reach exhaustion and investors may be rotating to dividend stocks, which offer more predictable returns than typical stocks, as a result. This concept is further discussed in a CNBC article that highlights Quantamize’s Stable Dividend Yield Stock Model Portfolio, “For bull market doubters, this relatively safe dividend strategy has provided big returns.
     
  • SDY is currently rated “Good” in our ETF Smart Beta Scores according to our models.
     
  • Demand among investors for international stocks continues to persist with the iShares Core MSCI EAFE ETF (IEFA) as the number 3 ETF in terms of 1-day fund flow in our universe. The IEFA invests in international equities excluding US and Canadian stocks. With nearly $400 million of inflows on Friday, the IEFA’s 1-month fund flow is number 4 in our universe with $2.2 billion of inflows and its 3-month fund flow is number 2 in our universe with $5.1 billion of inflows.
