The 7 Best ETFs to Buy in June
Tuesday, 7 June 2022, 12:47:09
No matter what the underlying circumstances, exchange-traded funds typically represent a solid idea for investors, because they offer exposure to a basket of stocks rather than a specifically focused wager. But during volatile cycles such as now, the best ETFs to buy can help you survive the uncertainty in the equities market — and potentially thrive. As mentioned earlier, ETFs promote exposure to several stocks. Therefore, if a few duds threaten to drag down your portfolio, you have other securities to help hold the line. Of course, the opposite is also true. If you have a few standout winners, you would have been better off just buying those names individually. Nevertheless, stock picking is tough business, which is why the best ETFs to buy are so popular. To be clear, you can’t just pick any ETF and go on your merry way. If the fund is associated with a basket of losers, you’re going to drown in red ink. But as we navigate these treacherous waters, certain segments of the economy clearly look better than others.
Nomura: Gamma Shock RIP

Nomura: Gamma Shock RIP After a breathless week, which saw stocks plunge then soar even as Powell unveiled a hawkish hike and a near-record quad witch a few days later led to a continuation of the meltup, the torrid trading continued on Monday with Fixed-Income positioning today remaining quite bearish hawkish, as markets shift their attention to an avalanche of Fed speakers ratchet up their hawkish forward guidance which has seen Fed hike forwards pick up further pace (75bps by June!) as markets brace for more inflation upside volatility. Of note, the market is still focusing on Friday’s remarkably hawkish commentary from Bullard, Wallard and even uber-dove Kashkari Bullard was on the tape recommending Fed Funds rising above 3% this year — i.e. multiple 50bps hikes in 2022! Waller stated that he’d like rates slightly above “neutral” (2.5%) by YE and strongly hinted at the potential for a 50bps hike at upcoming meeting(s) We also learned that Kashkari’s dot-plot projected rates at 1.75% – 2.00% by end 2022—i.e. seven hikes in ‘22 from a mega-dove— while also advocating a balance-sheet unwind pace running 2x’s prior roll-off, which would equate to max caps of $100B ($60B UST / $40B MBS).
