Hickey and Walters (Bespoke) submit: We have taken all the ETFs from our daily ETF Trend report and calculated their second quarter and year to date price performance. Not only is this a useful list of ETFs sorted by category (much like our popular ETF Cheat Sheets), but it also shows which areas have outperformed or underperformed in recent quarters.
Below we highlight index, style, dividend and other strategic ETFs. In the second quarter, QQQQ, DIA, NYC and OEF all outperformed the S&P 500 tracking SPY. Smallcap and midcap ETFs were up, but they underperformed their largecap brethren. Growth stock ETFs outperformed value stock ETFs, and many of the dividend ETFs were down or only up slightly in price.
