ETF Edge May 2014

Published on by on May 1, 2014

Welcome to the May edition of ETF Edge! Following a month of choppy trading, investors broadly scaled back their risk appetites in April. Mixed economic data releases and intensifying fears over the brewing crisis between Russia and Ukraine prompted investors to take profits as major equity indexes returned to all-time highs territory. 

Inside ETF Edge, we examine the most important drivers of domestic as well as foreign markets, identifying catalysts and signposts contributing to the trends at hand. We also recap valuation metrics across the equity universe and also break down the best and worst performers to date this year; our databank of over 1,400 exchange-traded products provides a flexible resource for investors and advisors to analyze the performance and products available in every ETFdb Category. Here’s a look at what’s inside this month’s ETF Edge:
