DWS unveils target-maturity euro corporate bond ETFs

DWS has introduced a set of four target-maturity fixed income ETFs in Europe, each with a management fee of 0.12%. These ETFs acquire bonds with specific maturity years (2027, 2029, 2031, and 2033), holding them to maturity.

The ETFs meet EU’s Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation, excluding companies involved in certain controversial sectors.

Treasury Rates Fall Amid Softening Economic Data, SHY Yield Declines Under 5%

As soft inflation data causes a shift in bond allocations, the Treasury yield curve falls alongside the expected yield of the SHY ETF. Despite an advancing stock market, the Treasury bond ETF maintains a hold rating due to the potential for falling rates.

TFLO: Moderating CPI Increases Chance Of Rate Cuts In 2024

The iShares Treasury Floating Rate Bond ETF (TFLO) has provided solid returns for investors due to increasing short-term interest rates. However, with potential rate cuts from the Fed in 2024 if inflation continues to moderate, investors are advised to be cautious. Although the TFLO offers exposure to floating rate treasury notes at a low expense ratio, switching to 2-year notes is suggested as a safer move in anticipation of potential rate cuts.

DIVO May Have Room To Increase Its Distributions

The Amplify CWP Enhanced Dividend Income ETF (DIVO) has been underperforming in 2023 despite its strategic approach and strong holdings. Even though the fund has stocks with a solid dividend growth history, the fund’s own dividend distribution growth has been minimal. Concerningly, dividends haven’t grown significantly in recent years, but the fund has seen net asset value growth. Whether the fund will increase its distributions remains a decision for the fund’s management.

OIH: A Popular Fund And Good One For Energy Bulls

The VanEck Vectors Oil Services ETF (OIH) offers investors broad exposure to the upstream oil industry, including sectors like oil equipment, services, and drilling. Tracking the MVIS U.S. Listed Oil Services 25 Index, the fund has $2.3 billion in assets and includes major holdings such as Schlumberger NV, Halliburton Co, and Baker Hughes Co. Despite its short-term volatility due to oil price fluctuations and global economic conditions, OIH provides a potentially growthful and diversified investment option for those bullish on the energy sector.

How Vanguard’s Charitable Endowment Program Stacks Up

As the third-largest donor-advised fund in the US, the Vanguard Charitable Endowment Program manages $15.2 billion in assets as of June 30, 2022. Despite being behind the Fidelity Charitable Gift Fund and Schwab Charitable Fund, it is considered the best option for investors maintaining large account balances due to its low administrative costs and robust investment lineup. The fund requires a $25,000 minimum for new accounts, encourages long-term commitments, and caters to an elite group of donors.
