As the uncertainty of a U.S.-China trade deal was settling in, investors may have been looking to the quality factor as a safe haven against a potential market downturn. “Looking today at week-over-week shares outstanding changes among the universe of ETFs covered at ETF Channel, one standout is the iShares Edge MSCI USA Quality Factor ETF (QUAL) where we have detected an approximate $138.2 million dollar inflow -- that's a 0.9% increase week over week in outstanding units (from 154,700,000 to 156,100,000),” a Nasdaq report noted.

Among investment factors and the related exchange traded funds, low volatility is hogging the limelight this year. Quality is often viewed as the most variable, hardest-to-define investment factor, but QUAL's year-to-date gain of 18.60% cannot be refuted nor can the notion that the hallmarks of quality are positives and winners over the long-term. “Quality tends to under-perform in sharply rising markets, such as when the economy is coming out of a recession,” said BlackRock in a recent note.
