Our 5 Favorite ETFs Launched in the Past 6 Months
Some new funds may help protect against the long-term effects of quantitative easing. Others offer access to low-cost baskets of emerging-markets stocks and high-dividend-paying companies.
In an ETF Specialist article last June, we published a list of Morningstar's five favorite exchange-traded funds that had been launched in the previous year.
At that time, issuers had launched a slew of exchange-traded products--more than 240 in total--over the previous 12 months. With such a bevy of new products available to investors, we sifted through those launches to come up with five ETFs that to our way of thinking represented the best in innovation, were good uses of the ETF vehicle, offered relatively inexpensive price tags (or in some cases, were downright cheap), and were reasonably distinctive.
