    Copper ETPs Reeling From U.S.-China Trade Wars

    Amid the fretting capital markets following an escalation of the U.S.-China trade war, copper exchange-traded products (ETPs) took a hit, which doesn’t bode well since the metal is seen a barometer of economic health. The iPath Series B Bloomberg Copper Subindex Total Return ETN (NYSEArca: JJC)  is down 4.85 percent the last five days and the United States Copper Index Fund, LP (CPER)  is also down 5 percent. Copper futures hit a bottom-barrel two-year low on Monday as chaos was ensuing in equities, which was evidenced by the fall in Dow Jones Industrial Average of over 950 points—the largest decline of 2019.  Due to copper’s widespread use, particularly when it comes to homebuilding and commercial construction, it’s a good measuring stick of how well the economy is doing.

    Sell on the Pop Prospects: July 24 Edition

    Here is a look at ETFs that currently offer attractive short selling opportunities. The ETFs included in this list are rated as sell candidates for two reasons. First, each of these funds is deemed to be in a downtrend based on the fact that its 50-day moving average is below 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 above its 20-day moving average, thereby offering a near-term 'sell on the pop' opportunity given the longer-term downtrend 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.

    3 Materials ETFs to Help Build Your Portfolio

    There are 11 sectors represented in the S&P 500 with weights ranging from 2.81% at the bottom to 21.45% at the top. Guess which group resides at the bottom? Materials.That is not the only point underscoring the materials sector's diminutive status. The Materials Select Sector SPDR ETF (NYSEARCA:XLB), the largest materials exchange-traded fund, holds just 28 stocks and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is home to just one materials stock -- Dow Inc. (NYSE:DOW).XLB "seeks to provide precise exposure to companies in the chemical, construction material, containers and packaging, metals and mining, and paper and forest products industries," according to State Street.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsSize aside, there are plenty of opportunities to be had with materials ETFs and investors may want to consider getting in while the getting is good because the sector is on fire in the first half of June."In fact, the materials group, the sector that tends to be the most sensitive to global economic growth expectations, is on track for its best monthly gain since October of 2015, when it soared 13.45%, according to Dow Jones Market Data," reports MarketWatch. * 7 Top-Rated Biotech Stocks to Invest In Today For investors looking to embrace a small sector with big potential, here are some materials ETFs to consider. VanEck Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF (GDXJ)Source: Shutterstock Expense Ratio: 0.53%, or $53 annually per $10,000 investedThe VanEck Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF (NYSEARCA:GDXJ) is one of the largest gold miners funds, meaning it is also a materials ETF and a volatile one at that. GDXJ has a three-year standard deviation of 30.50%, roughly triple the comparable metric on the S&P 500. Indeed, this materials ETF is not for the faint of heart and it has a tendency to overshoot gold's price action in either direction.Fortunately, the current climate sets up well for gold, as highlighted by GDXJ's month-to-date gain of nearly 9%."If you look at the GDXJ [VanEck Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF] and go back to 2010, the adjusted return in Canadian dollars is down about 85%. Then if you look deeper … at the really junior juniors, which aren't even in these ETFs, it's even more so. We have an industry where you've lost 80% to 90% of the value -- plus," said Jonathan Goodman, executive chairman of Dundee Corp., in an interview with Kitco News.Another catalyst could boost this materials ETF in the second half of the 2019: the Federal Reserve. If the Fed lowers interest rates, gold almost certainly rallies in response, likely sending GDXJ and miners ETFs higher along the way. Invesco MSCI Global Timber ETF (CUT)Source: Shutterstock Expense Ratio: 0.55%Among materials ETFs, timber funds -- all two of them -- often go overlooked. The Invesco MSCI Global Timber ETF (NYSEARCA:CUT), which tracks the MSCI ACWI IMI Timber Select Capped Index, gives investors nuanced materials exposure with a decent yield.CUT's underlying index "measures the performance of securities engaged in the ownership and management of forests, timberlands and production of products using timber as raw materials," according to Invesco.CUT holds 77 stocks, giving it a significantly larger roster than many traditional materials ETFs and some of that size is attributable to the fund being a global materials ETF. Eleven countries are represented in this materials ETF with the U.S. commanding a weight of 42%. Of the other 10 countries found in this materials ETF, eight are developed markets. * The 10 Best Index Funds to Buy and Hold Nearly 56% of CUT's components are classified as value stocks and the materials ETF reflects that value proposition with a price-to-earnings ratio of just 12.82x, a healthy discount relative to broader domestic equity benchmarks. SPDR S&P Mining & Materials ETF (XME)Source: Shutterstock Expense Ratio: 0.35%The SPDR S&P Mining & Materials ETF (NYSEARCA:XME) is an equal-weight materials ETF with diverse exposure to miners of several industrial and precious metals.XME's underlying index provides exposure to "the following sub-industries: Aluminum, Coal & Consumable Fuels, Copper, Diversified Metals & Mining, Gold, Precious Metals & Minerals, Silver, and Steel," according to State Street.In other words, XME is exactly the type of fund that can be stung by tariffs. That is exactly what has happened to this materials ETF. XME is down 11.41% in the second quarter and resides more than 31% below its 52-week high, putting the fund deeply into a bear market.XME is also volatile as far as materials ETFs are concerned. Over the past three years, XME's annualized volatility is 26.20% compared to 15.60% for the aforementioned XLB. Problem is, XME often does not justify that increased volatility because it can trail traditional materials ETFs by wide margins.As of this writing, Todd Shriber did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
