iShares S&P 500 ETF Ranked Among Top ETFs To Buy This Week

Another week, another shot at all-time highs for markets. This week will be a telling one, with 169 companies set to report representing over 48% of the S&P’s market cap. That includes giants such as Apple
AAPL
, Microsoft
MSFT
, Amazon
AMZN
, Google, Tesla
TSLA
and Facebook, so we are set to move one way or another this week. Earnings have been strong so far, with 88% of companies beating on EPS so far, the highest mark since 2008 and since FactSet started reporting on the numbers. There is plenty to be reading about this week, including some US-China meetings that are not going as well as expected, as a Beijing official says relations are in “stalemate.” Should we add trade tensions to the wall of worry that the market may or may not overcome? We’ll see how this week goes with earnings, but the Fed is also going to be front and center with their policy meeting this week. This week’s Top Buy ETFs are here to find a way to gain exposure to certain sectors of the market. Q.ai’s deep learning algorithms have identified several to look out for this week based on their fund flows over the last 90-days, 30-days, and 7-days.

iShares S&P SmallCap 600 ETF (IJR)

The iShares S&P SmallCap 600 ETF

is our final Top Buy ETF today. Interestingly, small caps have had massive outflows as of late and have really not been keeping up with overall markets.

Its fund flows have been negative with a 90-day fund flow of -$555,880,460.00, a 30-day fund flow of -$1,218,552,035.00, and 1-week fund flow of -$192,784,465.00.
