U.S. Dividend Growth & International: 2 ETFs Trading With Outsized Volume

In the last trading session, U.S. stocks delivered a mixed show as the market got cues of an improving U.S. economy on an upward revision of Q3 GDP data on the one hand and heightened geopolitical tension on the other that soured the investing sentiment toward risky securities. Among the top ETFs, investors saw SPY and DIA gain over 0.1% each and QQQ move lower by about 0.1% on the day.

Two more specialized ETFs are worth noting in particular though as both saw trading volume that was far outside of normal. In fact, both these funds experienced volume levels that were more than double their average for the most recent trading session. This could make these ETFs ones to watch out for in the days ahead to see if this trend of extra interest continues:

DGRO: Volume 3.06 times average

This U.S. dividend growth ETF was under the microscope yesterday as nearly 261,000 shares moved hands. This compares to an average trading volume of 85,150 shares and came as DGRO gained about 0.2% in the session.

The movement can largely be attributed to investors’ inclination toward income-generating securities. Notably, equities with a history of consistently growing dividends are stable in nature. In the last one-month period, DGRO was up about 0.4% and has a Zacks ETF Rank #3 (Hold).

(VIDI - ETF report): Volume 2.88 times average

This international large cap equities ETF was in focus yesterday as roughly 350,580 shares moved hands compared to an average of roughly 121,740 shares. We also saw some stock price movement as VIDI gained over 0.3%.

The big move was largely the result of ongoing accommodative policies in most developed and some emerging economies against the U.S. economy as this can have a big impact on international stocks like what we find in this ETF. In the last one-month period, VIDI was down 2.9%. The fund carries a Zacks ETF Rank #3 (Hold).
