ETF Watchlist: Week Of August 14, 2017

Others: iShares Edge MSCI Minimum Volatility USA ETF (USMV), PowerShares S&P 500 Low Volatility ETF (SPLV), SPDR Russell 1000 Low Volatility ETF (LGLV)

iShares U.S. Aerospace & Defense ETF (ITA)

This is more of a “current situation” hedge. Defense stocks jumped as the threat of military escalation rose this past week. That’s not an unusual reaction for such a situation but it usually tends to be a short-term response. On the other hand, aerospace and defense stocks have significantly outperformed the S&P 500 over the past several years. As the U.S.-North Korea situation evolves, these companies could continue to benefit.
