Factoid of the Day Friday, November 21, 2014
The S&P 500 closed yesterday’s trading session at an all-time high of 2052.75. The index is up 13.1% so far in 2014, including reinvested dividends. When it comes to investing in U.S. equities, passive mutual funds and ETFs are clearly more popular with investors than actively managed mutual funds and ETFs, according to data from Morningstar. Active U.S. equity funds/ETFs experienced net outflows for the eighth consecutive month in October, while passive U.S. equity funds/ETFs experienced net inflows for the ninth consecutive month. For the one-year period ended October 2014, active U.S. equity funds/ETFs reported net outflows totaling $79.3 billion, compared to net inflows totaling $139.5 billion for passive U.S. equity funds/ETFs.
