This Week's Top Performing ETFs: 09/27/2020

These were last week’s top performing ETFs. We’ve excluded funds which use leverage or make inverse bets on their underlying assets. This past week saw a rather mixed bag of top performers for across asset classes. However despite their positive returns, only one fund, the WisdomTree Cloud Computing Fund ( WCLD ) saw any inflows over the past week, and just $28 million at that. The top performer for the week, is a rather niche product. The Breakwave Dry Bulk Shipping ETF ( BDRY ) tracks an index of dry bulk freight futures contracts from specified indexes using only the long exposure to the nearest calendar quarter. The fund debuted in early 2018, and while it hasn’t gone especially main stream, it’s an interesting fund. It shouldn’t be shocking in an election year with a pandemic, but iPath Series B S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures ETN ( VXX B+ ) has done exceptionally well year-to-date to the tune of almost 69% while its rival ( VIXY A ) lags only half a percent behind. That said, both funds have lost over $320 million in assets over the same period.
