QQQ in Focus
This ETF offers diversified exposure to 100 of the largest domestic and international nonfinancial companies listed on the Nasdaq Stock Market based on market capitalization. It has key holdings in information technology at 60.9% while consumer discretionary makes up for 22.8% share. The fund charges 20 basis points in annual fees (see: all the Large Cap ETFs here).
Why the Move?
The large-cap space of the broad U.S. stock market has been an area to watch given that Wall Street has resumed its rally on signs of cooling trade tension between the United States and China. Optimism has also renewed on high hopes for the Q2 earnings season and rounds of upbeat data, which reflects a strengthening economy. In particular, the technology surge is instilling confidence.
More Gains Ahead?
QQQ has a Zacks ETF Rank #1 (Strong Buy) with a Medium risk outlook, suggesting that the outperformance could continue in the months ahead. Further, many of the segments that make up this ETF have a strong Zacks Industry Rank, so there is definitely still some promise for those who want to ride on this surging ETF a little longer.
