My favorite ETF reads over the past week, along with my ETF tweet and chart of the week!

ETF Tweet of the Week:  Morningstar’s Ben Johnson offers an excellent summary of completed or pending mutual fund-to-ETF conversions.  Funds that have converted or are converting total over $71 billion in assets, a number that will only grow larger.

 

ETF Chart of the Week:  The latest Charles Schwab ETF investor survey was released and the results are no surprise: “appetite for ETFs remains strong and is growing”.  The entire survey, titled “ETFs and Beyond“, is well worth a read, but the bottom line is that ETF growth isn’t slowing down any time soon.  Particularly noteworthy is that 41% of non-ETF investors expect to purchase an ETF in the next 2 years.
