The September issue of ETF Edge, the monthly ETF Newsletter, is now available to ETFdb Pro subscribers. This month’s issue includes a look back at a another active month in the ETF industry, taking a closer look at some of the new funds to hit the market and breaking down some interesting changes in the competitive landscape. We also make a case for our actionable investment ideas for the second half of the year, and debut the ETFdb Portfolios. Highlights include:
- Heard On The Street: In an expanded version of this section, we take a look at all the big stories in the ETF industry over the last month, including more first-to-market products, a big new player in the fixed income space, and a bizarre lawsuit.
- Actionable ETF Investment Ideas: This month’s actionable investment ideas include asset classes that have been beaten down in recent weeks.
- ETFdb Portfolios: In a new addition to ETF Edge, two of our ETF experts lay out their all-ETF model portfolios, explaining their methodology for allocating assets in the current environment.
- Coming and Going: August was a bit of a slowdown from July, but still a busy month for the product development side of the ETF market. The last month also saw some closures in the ETF industry, a trend some think will only accelerate in coming months.
- ETF Spotlight: In a new addition to ETF Edge, we highlight an ETF that is flying under the radars of most investors, but that may present an intriguing investment option in the current environment.
- Sector & Region Outlook: This snapshot of global investment opportunities continues to show impressive flexibility, once again changing significantly from the previous month. The September grid gives some interesting perspective on growth differentials, and plants a few ideas.
- Inside The ETFdb 60 Index: We take a look at the biggest gainers and losers in our all-ETF index for the month of August, taking a closer look at some of the drivers for each.
- Now Is The Season To: With markets torn between impressive corporate earnings and stubbornly high unemployment, it seems increasingly likely that stocks will move sideways between now and the end of the year. We lay out some ETF plays for that sort of environment.
