NEW YORK ( ETF Expert) -- Investors who own individual municipal bonds, real estate investment trusts, corporate bonds and/or preferreds may not see the day-to-day volatility of their holdings. For one thing, individual bond prices may not update regularly on web sites; similarly, those who do not value the liquidity of ETFs are less likely to watch price movement of their individual REITs and/or preferred stocks.On the other hand, ETF enthusiasts tend to be folks who have a plan to sell. They're not married to their investments. In fact, if an asset class is trending significantly lower, they may leave the asset class until it comes back into favor. In essence, exchange-traded fund fans are less inclined to "buy-n-hold."
