For investors seeking momentum, Invesco Russell MidCap Pure Growth ETF PXMG is probably on radar now. The fund just hit a 52-week high and is up about 41.6% from its 52-week low price of $36.31/share.

But are more gains in store for this ETF? Let’s take a quick look at the fund and the near-term outlook on it to get a better idea on where it might be headed:

PXMG in Focus

PXMG offers exposure to the mid-cap segment of the broad U.S. equity market, holding a well-diversified basket of 97 stocks. It has key holdings in information technology at 45.4% while consumer discretionary, healthcare and industrials round off the next three spots. The fund charges 39 basis points in annual fees (see: all the Mid Cap ETFs here).

Why the Move?

The mid-cap space of the broad U.S. stock market has been an area to watch lately given heightened volatility and uncertainty. While high hopes of Q2 earnings growth, historic tax cuts and rounds of upbeat economic data are bolstering confidence in the stock market, escalating trade tensions are making investors’ jittery. In such a scenario, mid-cap funds offer the best of both worlds — growth and stability — when compared to small and large-cap counterparts.

More Gains Ahead?

Currently, PXMG has a Zacks ETF Rank #2 (Buy) with a Medium risk outlook, suggesting that the outperformance could continue in the months ahead. Further, many of the segments that make up this ETF have a strong Zacks Industry Rank, so there is definitely some promise for those who want to ride this surging ETF a little further.
