Mid-Cap ETFs: Great Performance, Little Interest?

Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that track U.S. mid-cap companies may be one of those hidden opportunities, according to a recent report by Bloomberg Businessweek. Indeed, Bloomberg Intelligence ETF analyst Eric Balchunas says that MDY would be the best bet among any ETF in history based on performance. Balchunas describes mid-cap ETFs as "the Jan Brady of the stock market, the forgotten middle child," adding that he "continue[s] to be amazed by mid-caps" even as he himself also forgets about them.
