Although the stock market isn't a screaming buy today, investors shouldn't completely abandon equities for bonds. Here are some stock ETFs that are worth a closer look.
Whether you are looking for core foreign exposure or making a tactical bet, ETFs can be a good choice for international-stock investors, says Morningstar's Patty Oey.
PIMCO's Vineer Bhansali says investors should consider active ETFs over traditional indexed vehicles because the latter are carrying very low yields and few prospects for price gains.
Vanguard's Joel Dickson weighs the similarities and differences between the two vehicles, commenting on tax advantages, trading flexibility, dividend reinvestment, and more.
The launch of PIMCO's new fund Total Return ETF may prompt advisors and individual investors to reset their point of view about active ETFs over the next couple of years, says Morningstar's Paul Justice.
ETFs can be great vehicles for accessing core, liquid areas of the market, but they have more issues in MLPs and illiquid underlying assets, like high-yield bonds.
Vanguard principal and ETF strategist Joel Dickson responds to worries that increased passive investing has led to more market volatility and that ETFs cause investors to gamble with their portfolios.
BlackRock's Matt Tucker discusses notions about fixed-income ETF premiums and discounts, tax efficiency, liquidity, and more.
