U.S. Large Cap Value And High Yield Bond: 2 ETFs To Watch On Outsized Volume

In the last trading session, U.S. stocks closed in the green despite speculations about a sooner–than-expected interest rate hike by the Fed. Among the top ETFs, investors saw (SPY - ETF report) gain 0.63%, (DIA - ETF report) move up 0.40% and (QQQ - ETF report) rise 1.10% on the day.

Two more specialized ETFs are worth noting 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 the ones to watch out for in the days ahead to see if this trend of extra-interest continues:

VTV: Volume 3.86 times average

This U.S. large-cap value ETF was in focus on Friday as nearly 4.4 million shares moved hands. This compares to an average trading volume of 1.1 million shares and came as VTV gained 0.52% in the session.

The movement can be attributed to the possibility of a sooner-than-expected Fed rate hike and the likely volatility in the market that can have a positive impact on large-cap value stocks like the ones we find in this ETF portfolio. In the last one-month period, VTV was down about 1.7%. The fund currently has a Zacks ETF Rank #2 (Buy).
    
SJNK: Volume 2.06 times average


This short-term high yield bond ETF was under the microscope on Friday as nearly 2.4 million shares moved hands. This compares to an average trading volume of 1.2 million shares and came as SJNK gained about 0.08% in the session. In the last one-month period, SJNK was up about 0.7%. The fund has a Zacks ETF Rank #4 (Sell).
