Low Volume, High Returns For These ETFs (BIB, FHC, DRW)

July 16, 2012


Many investors place a high level of importance on how much a given ETF trades, but if you understand that what really matters is the liquidity of a given fund’s underlying constituents, there are many “illiquid” funds outperforming some of their more heavily traded rivals, according to an article on Benzinga.

While these three ETFs have an average daily trading volume below 50,000 shares, they all have year-to-date returns of more than 10 percent:

  • ProShares Ultra Nasdaq Biotechnology (NasdaqGM: BIB)
  • WisdomTree Global ex-US Real Estate Fund (NYSEArca: DRW)
  • Focus Morningstar Health Care Index ETF (NYSEArca: FHC)
