After a short calm period, trade war fears again spooked investors leading to rough trading on Wall Street. Notably, Dow Jones fell for the fifth straight session on Jun 18 when the trade tension between the world’s top two economies flared up again.Source: Investment Zen via Flickr (Modified)
For those of you seeking really high-yield exchange-traded funds, this article is for you. Finding dividends above 9% is really challenging, because they either involve companies whose stock prices are falling (and therefore yields rise in turn), or they are leveraged ETFs. You just need to be aware that if the market or the investments in these high-yield ETFs turn against you, they will turn against you in a much bigger way, and very quickly as well.
Options strategies aren't used very often in the exchange-traded fund world. There are only nine ETFs that regularly use options, with total assets under management of a combined $800 million—small potatoes in the $3 trillion ETF industry. But that could be changing. Strong inflows into one options-linked ETF this year suggests investors may be taking a closer look at these products as they consider new ways to generate income and hedge against downside risk in a market that is trading at rich valuations.
