Explosive growth in the ETF market has led investors to question how to profit from these relatively new investment vehicles

Explosive growth in the ETF market has led investors to question how to profit from these relatively new investment vehicles.

Explosive growth in the ETF market has led investors to question how to profit from these relatively new investment vehicles. Morningstar, the global leader in investment research, can help you answer that question. This annual guide includes full-page reports on the 150 largest and most popular ETFs. In addition, you’ll find dozens of pages of editorial guidance dedicated to revealing the advantages and disadvantages of ETFs, explaining how to use ETFs in a portfolio, gauging which ETFs track the slice of the market you want, and much more.
  • This seemed to provide a very good review of the ETFs covered. It does not cover them all, and the newest ones are not covered well because there is hardly any historical data to use to construct the coverage. For the ETFs old enough, and covered, it does have the info I wanted - volatility, tax efficiency, expenses, returns, main holdings. It is easier to use than the web site.
    The book appears to be published early every year, and can get dated as the year progresses. Obviously the best data is in the latest book. Don't get last year's.

  • Only 150 ETF's are covered. I would have been happier if every ETF was covered. Since this book is a snapshot in time, the data is outdated soon after publication. ETF's are relatively new. Only a very small number have been around long enough to have gone through a market cycle so we can only speculate what will happen if this market continues to do poorly or worse crashes. One great feature of ETF's is their low fees. Unless you have a huge sum of money to invest you could just buy the S&P 500 ETF or the Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF plus a Foreign ETF. That should take a couple of hours and then you wouldn't ever look at this book again.

  • talk to an advisor

  • As always Morningstar comes through - this is an essential volume for anyone considering entering the world of ETFs. Concise...precise...effective...

  • It does a great job summarizing top rated ETFs. It can be a better resource if some recommended alternative models targeting different goals are added.

  • It's easy to see four or five stars and say, "This is a good fund. I'll invest in it." Trouble is, Morningstar looks at the "history" of an ETF and bases it's star rating on that. Moreover, I've gone to Yahoo's fine finance area and done charts to compare some five star rated funds against their benchmark and other funds. I've found the five star fund wanting in many cases. Some have sad losses against the benchmark and another fund I have an interest in but that may have been spanked with no stars or one star by Morningstar.

    There is information in the book that is worthwhile. The following from the book description, for example.

    500 company reports, each of which includes a five-year financial summary and Analyst Report

    * Highest- and lowest-rated stocks

    * Largest companies by market cap and sales

    * Most profitable companies

    * Highest dividend yields and cash returns

    * Highest and lowest valuation ratios

    * Highest Market Capitalization and Sales

    * Highest Return on Equity and Return on Assets

    * Highest Dividend Yield and Cash Returns

    * Highest and Lowest Price Multiples

    Here's my main issue with Morningstar and their rating of an ETF. For the truly passive ETF based on the traditional, market cap weighted indexation, what's the point? Your fund is weighted against a benchmark. That's it.

    I can see Morningstar for mutual funds, of course. If there is quasi-active management in an ETF, such as Powershares, I can see using Morningstar.

    So that's why I gave the book only three stars. Morningstar is a good, valuable service. But for the passive ETF investor, I don't see the value except in having a quick snapshot of the fund, it's expenses and other information.
