5 ETFs to Watch This Week

iShares Dow Jones Select Dividend Index Fund (DVY)

Dividend investing has fallen into favor in recent weeks as investors attempt to defend their portfolios against market turmoil. DVY has proven to be a popular destination for cautious ETF investors. The fund has enjoyed above average trading volumes on six of the past seven trading sessions.

On Thursday, Global X announced the launch of a new product aimed at satisfying investor demand for dividend-paying equities. The Global X SuperDividend ETF (SDIV) has gotten off to an excellent start, with trading volume over 300,000 on its opening day. While investors should continue to hold off until the fund generates a stable following, SDIV could prove to be a force to be reckoned with among dividend ETFs.

SPDR S&P Homebuilder ETF (XHB)

The homebuilder ETFs have had a rough start to June as the outlook for the residential real estate industry remains weak. Since the start of the month, the fund has seen only one day of upward action.

Investors will learn more about the start of the housing market during the middle this week as a deluge of industry-specific reports come through the wires.

XHB will be particularly interest on watch on Thursday when top holding Pier 1 Imports (PIR) reports earnings.
