These two steady and reliable investment factors have been tossed on their heads.
This ETF uses two tactics to smooth returns.
Volatility hasn't crept back into the markets; it has jumped back in. The COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak has sent stocks lurching over the past week. And in the face of such huge market swings, investors sometimes make rash decisions that can ultimately harm their portfolios. That's where exchange-traded funds can help - specifically, low-volatility ETFs.Big declines trigger fear, and that fear will be even more elevated when it's triggered by something like a genuine health crisis. People don't want to lose money, and they certainly don't want to lose more money than they already have. While you should always be looking for stocks to sell as a matter of regular portfolio maintenance, if you panic-sell, you risk throwing the baby out with the bathwater.In many cases, investors who jettison their stocks en masse on the way down cement their losses while leaving themselves out of the recovery.Here are 10 low-volatility ETFs that might help ward off this instinct and lessen your pain. Low-vol (and "min-vol") funds use different strategies in the name of providing portfolios that are more stable than the broader market. That not only helps muffle losses during downturns, but the reduction in volatility can give you a little peace of mind and let you participate in an eventual bounce-back. Take a look.
