This Week’s Top 20 ETFs
Ranked By Weighted Average Broker Rating of Underlying ComponentsEach week, ETF Channel forms this rank by first looking at the analyst opinions from the major brokerage houses (which are tallied and averaged) for each individual component of each ETF. Then, for each ETF, those average broker ratings are considered as a weighted average according to the weighting of each of the ETF’s components — this gives the average broker rating for the entire ETF based upon its holdings. The ETF coverage universe is then ranked to give us the weekly top five ETFs by weighted average broker rating of underlying components. These rankings are meant as a tool for investors to generate ideas for further research.

This Week’s Top 20 ETFs
Ranked By Weighted Average Broker Rating of Underlying ComponentsEach week, ETF Channel forms this rank by first looking at the analyst opinions from the major brokerage houses (which are tallied and averaged) for each individual component of each ETF. Then, for each ETF, those average broker ratings are considered as a weighted average according to the weighting of each of the ETF’s components — this gives the average broker rating for the entire ETF based upon its holdings. The ETF coverage universe is then ranked to give us the weekly top five ETFs by weighted average broker rating of underlying components. These rankings are meant as a tool for investors to generate ideas for further research.

This Week’s Top 20 ETFs
Ranked By Weighted Average Broker Rating of Underlying ComponentsEach week, ETF Channel forms this rank by first looking at the analyst opinions from the major brokerage houses (which are tallied and averaged) for each individual component of each ETF. Then, for each ETF, those average broker ratings are considered as a weighted average according to the weighting of each of the ETF’s components — this gives the average broker rating for the entire ETF based upon its holdings. The ETF coverage universe is then ranked to give us the weekly top five ETFs by weighted average broker rating of underlying components.

SPONSORED AREAWhy are Warren Buffett and Bill Gates dumping these stocks?

Buffett just ditched millions of shares in familiar giants like Procter and Gamble. Bill Gates just dumped 90 million shares of Microsoft. Why? They’re scared. Obama’s economic policies scare them. Don’t listen to what they say. Watch what they do. Gates just invested $571 million in this special ‘back-to-basics’ company. Buffett followed suit to the tune of $300 million. What do they know that you don’t? Don’t let Buffett and Bill make all the money. There’s still time. Buy this stock in America’s oldest and safest industry, hold on to it and let it make you richer for decades. It’s what our favorite billionaires are planning.
