Thirty-six new names joined January’s ETF Deathwatch while only ten left, leaving a net increase of 26. Total Deathwatch membership now stands at a new all-time high of 268.

The 36 additions consisted of 27 ETFs and nine ETNs. Three-quarters of them just came out of the six-month new product grace period. Given the record number of new launches in 2011, the Deathwatch list seems likely to grow further in the coming months.

Only two of the ten funds coming off the list managed to do so gracefully. iShares MSCI Ireland Capped Investable Market (NYSEARCA:EIRL) and Russell 2000 High Momentum ETF (NYSEARCA:SHMO) had increases in trading activity. The other eight removals were all funds that closed in December.

ETF-Deathwatch-Cnt-2012-01

The 268 current members consist of 201 ETFs and 67 ETNs. The ETF count includes 17 of the 39 (44%) currently listed actively-managed funds. The average age of products on the list is just under two years at 23.3 months, while assets average just $5.7 million each.

Typically, only a few products go an entire month with no trading activity. For December, the number surged to seven and six of them came from the iPath brand. For the third month in a row, iPath US Treasury 5-Year Bull ETN (NYSEARCA:DFVL) had no trading activity at all. It would have been four calendar months but for a small trade on September 1, 2011. DFVL’s inability to attract any volume is even more alarming given the fact that it represents one of the year’s best performing asset classes. It is truly a zombie ETF.

iPath Long Enhanced MSCI EAFE Index ETN (NYSEARCA:MFLA) is not far behind, having last traded on October 4, 2011. The other five products with zero activity for the month December were iPath Pure Beta Aluminum ETN (NYSEARCA:FOIL), iPath Pure Beta Energy ETN (NYSEARCA:ONG), iPath Pure Beta S&P GSCI-Weighted ETN (NYSEARCA:SBV), iPath Short Enhanced (-2x) MSCI EAFE Index ETN (NYSEARCA:MFSA), and Russell Small Cap Contrarian ETF (SCTR).
