Below is a look at ETFs that currently offer attractive buying opportunities. The ETFs included in this list are rated as buy candidates for two reasons. First, each of these funds is deemed to be in an uptrend based on the fact that its 50-day moving average is above its 200-day moving average, which are popular indicators for gauging long-term and medium-term trends, respectively. Second, each of these ETFs is also trading below its five-day moving average, thereby offering a near-term 'buy on the dip' opportunity, given the longer-term uptrend at hand. Note that this prospects list also features a liquidity screen by excluding ETFs with average trading volumes below the one million shares mark. As always, investors of all experience levels are advised to use stop-loss orders and practice disciplined profit-taking techniques.

With the first quarter of 2019 behind us, it’s easy to forget the retail sector since the holidays are a distant memory, but last month's rally in the sector is a reminder to investors that they should consider adding retail-focused ETFs to their portfolios. While strength in the retail sector piggybacks off of strong consumer spending, there has been a lot of movement within the sector that could make for some interesting ETF plays like SPDR S&P Retail ETF (XRT).
Rising consumer confidence bodes well for household spending in the coming months, and is expected to have a positive impact on the consumer discretionary sector, which attracts a major portion of consumer spending.
Shares of Under Armour Inc. jumped 3.5% in premarket trade Friday, after J.P. Morgan turned bullish on the athletic gear maker for the first time in at least three years, following an upbeat meeting with management. Analyst Matthew Boss raised his rating to overweight from neutral, and his stock price target to $29, which is 33% above Thursday's closing price of $21.88, from $23. Boss said the tone from the meeting was "controlled confidence" in the brand's direction, with earnings and revenue growth acceleration driven by the combination of the company's product, innovation and marketing strategy. That follows the company's "shrink phase" aimed at product rationalization, inventory reduction and vendor base consolidation. Boss said Under Armour is now positioned for "multi-year gross margin expansion." The stock has rallied 23.8% year to date through Thursday, while the SPDR Consumer Discretionary Select Sector ETF has climbed 18% and the S&P 500 has advanced 15%.
