Short-Term Bonds and Dividend: 2 ETFs to Watch on Outsized Volume

Sanghamitra Saha
Comtech Telecommunications (CMTL) closed the most recent trading day at $26.47, moving +1.26% from the previous trading session.

In the last trading session, U.S. stocks were mostly in the red as there was a rout in the tech space triggered by reports of Facebook’s data breaches. Among the top ETFs, investors saw SPY losing about 1.4%, DIA shedding about 1.3% and QQQ move lower by 2.1% on the day.

Two more specialized ETFs are also worth watching as both saw trading volume that was far outside of normal. In fact, both these funds experienced volume levels that were more than double their average for the most of the last trading session. This could make these ETFs ones to watch out for in the days ahead to see if this trend of extra-interest continues.

CSJ: Volume 4.33 times average

This U.S. short-term investment-grade corporate bond ETF was under the microscope yesterday as about 2.3 million shares changed hands. This compares to the average trading volume of around 524,000 shares and came as CSJ gained about 0.03% in the session. The fund gained despite the rising rate concerns. The fund has lost about 2% in the last one month.

DGRW: Volume 3.66 times average

This U.S. ETF, consisting of dividend-paying stocks with growth characteristics, was in the spotlight yesterday as nearly one million shares moved hands compared with an average of roughly 278,800 million shares a day. The fund lost about 1.1% in the last trading session and was down about 0.1% in the last one month.
