These are the best-performing ETFs over the last three months, six months, one year, three years, five years, and 10 years. All ETFs on the list meet the following basic requirements:

  • Non-leveraged.
  • At least 100,000 in daily average volume.

These criteria are used to avoid ETFs with very low volume. Also, while leveraged ETFs may provide big returns in the short-term, many do not fair well over the long-term, and they often witness significant drawdowns as well.

All data is sourced from StockRover as of May 17, 2023. Returns include dividends and assume reinvestment. These lists are updated near the start of each month.

If more than one ETF tracking the same investment/industry is on the list, only the top-performing one is included in the numbered list. The tickers of the other ETFs tracking a similar thing, and which have returns higher than the next ETF on the numbered list, are included in the Additional ETFs & Return column.
