5 ETFs To Fall In Love With This Valentine's Day

It seems stock market bulls are showering all their love on Wall Street this Valentine’s Day. This is especially true as the major bourses are hovering near new all-time highs buoyed by stronger-than-expected earnings, positive development in U.S.-China trade relationship, China stimulus measures, easing policies and slew of upbeat economic data.

In fact, the bulls bravely escaped the Middle East tensions in January and the recent coronavirus threats, which could lead to global slowdown. The solid trend is likely to continue at least in the near term given the resurgence of investors’ confidence in the economy.

This is because the labor market was off to a strong start in 2020, creating 225,000 new jobs in January. The manufacturing sector, which had languished in contraction territory for five months, rebounded strongly in January while services sector activity also picked up, with industries reporting increases in new orders. The solid data suggests that the economy could continue to grow moderately this year.  

Against this backdrop, several ETFs have been trending higher building up a solid relationship with investors, gaining in double digits. As such, we have highlighted five ETFs that continue to receive investors’ affection in the month of love even amid volatility.
