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.

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.
