Major Biotech ETFs Had Lackluster Performance in the Past Month

All three major biotechnology ETFs—the SPDR S&P Biotech ETF (XBI), the iShares NASDAQ Biotechnology Index (IBB), and the ProShares Ultra Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (BIB)—have posted returns of ~1% in last month, starting on August 10. That compares unfavorably with the performance of the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY), which returned ~1.7% in the same period.
