The market has had a difficult time rallying investor sentiment in the face of ongoing eurozone debt troubles and a slowdown in emerging market growth this year. Even as the volatile broad market action has given way recently to a bit of a recovery, investor confidence is still tentative, but there are a few ETFs that have been able to shine through the gloom, according to an article on Zacks.

The following ETFs have managed returns as high as 40 percent:

  • Market Vectors Egypt Index ETF (NYSEArca: EGPT)
  • Dow Jones U.S. Home Construction Index Fund (NYSEArca: ITB)
  • SPDR S&P Homebuilders ETF (NYSEArca: XHB)
  • Market Vectors Biotech ETF (NYSEArca: BBH)
