    Make A Quality Call With This ETF

    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.

    Don’t Forget to Add a Dash of Quality to Your Portfolio

    U.S. equities relished off the high of President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreeing to cease fire on tariffs as both nations continue to work on an ironclad trade deal, but investors should still add a dash of quality to their portfolios when the optimism wanes. Just as markets were getting roiled in 2018, money continued to flow into ETFs, but what is fueling this divergence?

    ETF Portfolio Rebalancing Reflects Importance of Indexing

    For example, the iShares Edge MSCI USA Quality Factor ETF (Cboe: QUAL) saw $1.5 billion in redemptions on a single day last week, its largest outflow over its six-year history, the Wall Street Journal reports. The outflows were part of a $3 billion two-way trade that began days earlier and had little to do with prevailing market sentiment over the ETF investment strategy. The catalyst to the sudden flows was attributed to the underlying index provider, MSCI Inc. as QUAL's underlying benchmark underwent its semiannual rebalancing, which triggered massive money moves as portfolio managers realigned holdings to the updated index.

    Despite Its Strengths, This Buyback Strategy May Disappoint

    Stock buybacks are a sign of strong profitability and shareholder-friendly management teams who understand that their employers may have better investment opportunities than they do.  Invesco BuyBack Achievers ETF PKW has built a solid record by selecting stocks based on short-term repurchasing activity. Firms that repurchase their shares tend to be highly profitable, but there is little to suggest that past repurchasing activity is predictive of future performance after controlling for profitability.
