FYI: This year’s Teflon market has fooled the naysayers and delivered strong returns for most ETF investors. With the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) up by more than 17% in a little over six months, it’s been hard to go wrong in the markets.
It’s not surprising then that there aren’t that many funds doing poorly in 2019. In fact, of the ETFs that were around at the end of last year, only about a tenth of them are down on a year-to-date basis.
That group is what we will be looking at in this article, the worst-performing ETFs of the year.
