  • Caution, Not All ETFs Are Taxed the Same [View article]
    Hi Mike - what questions did it raise for you? We're happy to answer any that are not offering specific guidance.

    Generally, though, stories like these are meant to alert investors that these issues and differences exist, but further specific questions need to be directed to your accountant.

    MDMoney, commodity ETFs with futures generate K-1s.

  • SEC Proposes New Trading Rules in Aftermath of Flash Crash [View article]
    Thanks. The SEC appears to still be investigating the crash and everything that happened in that 20-minute span. It looks like they're taking some steps to fix some of the contributing issues and they may not be done just yet. It wouldn't be surprising to see more from them in the coming weeks and months on this one.

  • Seven Ways to Pick the Right Bond ETF [View article]
    That was an oversight - we apologize. For future reference, we don't favor any ETF over another - it's just that with the growing number of bond offerings (and ETF offerings), it becomes increasingly difficult to list or call attention to them all. Throughout all of our stories, we try to be fairly equal in terms of which funds we give coverage to, but we can't list all of them in every story. Vanguard does have good bond funds and are certainly worthy of your consideration.

  • Going Beyond EEM and VWO for ETF-Based Emerging Markets Exposure [View article]
    No, we never recommend leveraged ETFs for long-term investing! They're meant for daily use. The longer you hold them, the more you risk tracking error, especially in volatile market. EDC is for investors who don't mind extra risk and want some octane with their exposure.
