Noteworthy Etf Inflows: Tlt

Posted

Although March finished mostly in the green, 10 of the 29 ETF sectors tracked were down. In addition to Biotechnology/Pharmaceutical, Broadband/Networking/Internet, Software and Natural Resources/Gold suffered notable declines. After gold(NYSEARCA:GLD) peaked in mid-March, its steady decline through month-end also pulled down mining ETFs. The worst was Market Vectors Jr Gold Miners (NYSEARCA:GLDX), off 12.4% in March.

RWLs lineup has the potential to surprise investors accustomed to traditional S&P 500 ETFs. For example, Wal-Mart ( WMT ) is RWLs largest holding at almost 4.1% of the funds while Apple ( AAPL ), SPYs largest holding, is relegated to the sixth spot in RWL. Phillips 66 ( PSX ) has a larger weight in RWL than Apple and ConocoPhillips ( COP ), the company that spun Phillips 66 off. [A Winning Revenue-Weighted ETF] RWL has outpaced the S&P 500 by over 500 basis points over the past three years.

Thats because over the last 50 years, April has been by far the strongest month of the year for the Dow. Over the past 20 and 50 years, the Dow webpage has averaged a gain of more than 2 percent in April, beating every other month of the year. With the first quarter heading to conclusion as I write this, the S&P 500 (SPX) is up marginally for the year and on track to post its fifth quarterly advance. And if you step back and look at the chart below, the benchmark S&P 500 is acting perfectly fine as it builds a new five-week flat base below records.

The chart below shows the one year price performance of TLT, versus its 200 day moving average: Looking at the chart above, TLT"s low point in its 52 week range is $101.17 per share, with $124.26 as the 52 week high point - that compares with a last trade of $108.15. Comparing the most recent share price to the 200 day moving average can also be a useful technical analysis technique -- learn more about the 200 day moving average . Exchange traded funds (ETFs) trade just like stocks, but instead of ""shares"" investors are actually buying and selling ""units"". These ""units"" can be traded back and forth just like stocks, but can also be created or destroyed to accommodate investor demand. Each week we monitor the week-over-week change in shares outstanding data, to keep a lookout for those ETFs experiencing notable inflows (many new units created) or outflows (many old units destroyed). Creation of new units will mean the underlying holdings of the ETF need to be purchased, while destruction of units involves selling underlying holdings, so large flows can also impact the individual components held within ETFs.
