My favorite ETF reads over the past week, along with my ETF tweet and chart of the week!
“ESG ETFs can and often do hold names that might not be considered ESG, depending on how you define it.”
“If a futures-based ETF comes to market without the ability for GBTC to convert to an ETF, it has the potential to harm investors who hold tens of billions of dollars’ worth of GBTC today outright.”
“A colleague describes Wood’s go-big-or-go-home approach as a model for the new way of investing.”
“There are approximately 80 U.S. listed ETFs charging a minuscule fee of 0.05% or less.”
“High-yielding dividend exchange-traded funds can be enticing for income-focused investors. But many of these funds are laden with risky stocks lacking the financial resources to support ongoing dividend payments.”
“The more they understand ETFs, the better equipped they will be to understand how ETFs trade, and the better their trading experience with us will be.”
“What if you could take what was so attractive about ETFs 30 years ago and reconstruct that type of appeal for an entirely new world of financial options that we couldn’t even conceive of as little as 15 years ago?”
ETF Tweet of the Week:
NFTs are cool.
But ETFs are cooler.

ETF Chart of the Week: On a rolling 12-month basis, ETFs have taken in $816 billion(!) through August. This is a record for any 12-month stretch.
