Investors should reposition their portfolio for more exposure to the growth space to obtain a nice momentum play. For them, we have presented five ETFs and stocks that are ready to bloom this spring.
Vanguard. Schwab. iShares. SPDR. All of these exchange-traded fund (ETF) giants undercut each other for years by putting out the cheapest index funds they could. All competed against each other in a so-called "race to zero."And all lost to the most unlikely of dark horses.Upstart SoFi recently rattled the low-cost establishment by becoming the first provider to launch ETFs with zero annual expenses - and did so with the launch of its first two ETFs. (For the record, Fidelity introduced the first no-fee index funds in the mutual fund industry back in August 2018.)The large-cap SoFi Select 500 ETF (SFY) and mid-cap SoFi Next 500 ETF (SFYX) joined the markets on Thursday, April 11. Each fund has a listed expense ratio of 0.19%, but SoFi will waive those fees through at least June 30, 2020. That clearly will make them the cheapest ETFs in their respective categories.But it doesn't cost much to invest in any corner of the market. A host of other categories feature index funds that, while not totally free, charge microscopic fees that make them extremely cost-efficient.Here are 45 of the cheapest index funds in the U.S. ETF universe. These ETFs, listed by Morningstar category, cover stocks, bonds and other assets across a wide range of strategies. SEE ALSO: The 19 Best ETFs for a Prosperous 2019
Coming off its worst quarterly performance (down 20.5%) since the September quarter of 2011, Russell 2000's Q1 bounce was 14.2%. This puts the spotlight on small-cap ETFs.
While value investing has garnered immense attention in volatile markets, growth stocks have more upside potential in the coming months, especially if the trade deal is reached.
After a lackluster July, growth stocks seem to have regained their appeal this month. This is especially true given that the S&P 500 Growth Index is up 3.9% so far this month, outpacing the gain of 1.6% for the S&P 500 Value Index.
American economy has been on a solid growth path. This is especially true as U.S. GDP growth expanded 4.1% annually in the second quarter, representing the fastest pace of growth in nearly four years. The number is almost double the revised Q1 growth rate of 2.2%. With this, GDP expanded 3.1% for the first half of the year.Source: Gage Skidmore via Wikimedia (Modified)
The U.S. stock market has started to feel the heat of summer in some corners. While the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average have seen a summer lull so far, the Russell 2000 index and Nasdaq Composite index have been burning with impressive gains of 3.6% and 3.5%, respectively, over the past one month.Source: Shutterstock
