ETF Fund Flows: SPY Adds $1.97 Billion

ETF.com

Investors plowed $1.97 billion into the SPDR S'P 500 ETF (SPY - News) yesterday, as total ETF assets rose on net inflows and a stock market that climbed 1.2 percent on new hopes that, with the eurozone in disarray, the Federal Reserve might ride to the rescue with a new round of quantitative easing.

Net inflows of $4.31 billion—led by SPY and a number of iShares bond funds—combined with rising stocks to lift total U.S.-listed ETF assets to almost $1.160 trillion yesterday from about $1.150 trillion on Wednesday, June 13, according to data compiled by IndexUniverse.

The Dow Jones industrial average added 155.53 points, or 1.2 percent, to 12,651.91, as markets hoped the Fed would launch so-called QE3 at a time when the eurozone’s current structure hangs in the balance. Parliamentary elections in Greece this Sunday, June 17, should help define that country’s fate.

The iShares Barclays Intermediate Credit Bond Fund (CIU - News) pulled in $726.4 million, while the iShares iBoxx $ Investment Grade Corporate Bond Fund (LQD - News) gathered $544.1 million, making the two ETFs Nos. 2 and 3 on IndexUniverse’s “Top 10 Creations” list.

Yesterday’s least popular ETF was the iShares Dow Jones Select Dividend Index Fund (DVY - News), which had outflows of $166.6 million.
