With U.S. equity markets last Friday closing down for four of the last five weeks, it was clear that investors continued to be spooked by the thought of “tapering” by the Federal Reserve. The hope that Chairman Bernanke’s recent press conference would calm nerves fell flat as the S&P 500 experienced this past week its largest two-day drop since last November. The concern seemed that it would be short lived, since on Monday the Dow was able to rebound nearly 473 points from its mid-day low. This was driven by upbeat economic news as well as tamer reiterations from the Fed that any pullback of quantitative easing would be based on the economic outlook, which may not be as great as it had previously suggested. Unfortunately, this late rally in stocks did not deter investors from pulling back some of their fund exposure.

With little news during the week on earnings or new economic numbers, many investors were stuck picking up the pieces, looking toward June 19, when the next Fed meeting takes place. As a result, continued choppiness in the equity markets kept many fund investors on edge; U.S. mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) (excluding money market funds) reported net outflows of $7.7 billion for the week ended June 13.

Reinforced commitment from the Fed and better-than-expected nonfarm payroll numbers helped convince investors to continue pushing up the U.S. equity markets. New tops for domestic stock indices and limited opportunities for yield from bonds fed demand for riskier assets. While many analysts advised caution, it proved too hard not to participate, and investors injected roughly $16.6 billion net into mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) (excluding money market funds) for the week ended May 8.

It was not long after both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 closed at new all-time highs on Thursday, April 11, that investors started to show concern over the sustainability of the recent rally. News from China kicked off broad selling on Monday, April 15; China reported disappointing Q1 GDP and March industrial production numbers. Weakness in the broader commodity markets, including the largest ever one-day drop in the price of gold, also helped fuel investors’ concerns; volatility jumped and the global markets continued to shed value through Wednesday. Despite the strong selloff in stocks, U.S. mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs), excluding money market funds, reported net inflows of $6.5 billion for the week ended April 17.

During the past week many investors tried to decipher the possible effects of a Cypriot exit from the Eurozone and the knock-on consequences of a bailout structured on the shoulders of savers. Although an agreement for a European Central Bank-led bailout was reached over the weekend, the initial rally in the markets on Monday was short lived as analysts still wondered what the bank restructuring would mean for other European countries. Despite the concerns, U.S. indices trended upward for most of the week as investors focused on strong home price and manufacturing numbers, a momentum that would push both the Dow and the S&P 500 to close out March at record highs. Fund investors also did not seem rattled by any new Eurozone risks; mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs), excluding money market funds, recorded net inflows of $4.5 billion.

With the second month of the year behind us, things seemed to be continuing to move in the right direction in terms of both the economy and the financial markets. Although most stocks did not provide as strong returns as in January, year-to-date performance through February stood at roughly 6% for the broader U.S. equity indices. On generally good employment news, the upwardly revised Q4 2012 GDP numbers, and strong exports out of China, investors continued to show confidence by pushing markets to new highs. Initial concerns over the enactment of sequestration on March 1 were pushed to the wayside as the Dow closed at an all-time high on Tuesday, March 5. General feelings of optimism paved the way for continued strength in fund flows; investors injected roughly $10.8 billion into mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) for the week.

After a quick pop in the market late last week on stronger economic numbers at home and in China, investors seemed to be sitting on their hands as most U.S. indices moved sideways during and after the run-up to President Obama’s first second-term State of the Union address. Despite the general pause, investors continued to allocate new money to the funds business. For the week ending February 13, 2013, mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) (excluding money market funds) reported net inflows of $4.4 billion.

Investors continued to show optimism in the global equity markets as better than expected export news out of China and continued weakness in the Japanese yen boosted Asian indices. With a strong Q4 earnings season kickoff at home, the U.S. markets joined suit; the S&P 500 index added just over three-quarters of a percentage point for the week ending Wednesday, January 16. Combine the 3%-plus returns we have seen so far this year with the previous week’s large equity fund flows, and one would expect the perfect recipe for continued buying.

It’s one week closer to the end of the year, and the prevailing focus of the market continues to be on Washington’s inability to come to some type of agreement on the looming “fiscal cliff” issue. With what seem to be hourly news conferences and pundit speculation, the markets have generally moved toward a consensus that a compromise will be made. That, combined with better-than-expected unemployment numbers, led to the markets ending the Wednesday-to-Wednesday week up more than 1.3%. Fund investors also seemed to see things positively; they injected $12.7 billion into mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) for the week.

Published on 26 Nov 2012, by Matthew Lemieux
For the week ended Wednesday, November 21, mutual fund and exchange-traded fund (ETF) investors still seemed cautious; they injected roughly $15.8 billion in net new cash for the week, with $20.5 billion net going to money market accounts. Equity products seemed immune to the market rebound; they experienced nearly $7.3 billion in net redemptions for the week—for the largest weekly outflow since July of this year. Results for taxable bond funds (+$671 million) were very similar to those of the previous week. Investors continued to shed risk as corporate high-yield funds reported net outflows of $1.1 billion; corporate investment-grade, with $1.1 billion in net sales, nearly offset the redemptions. Investors also sought refuge in U.S. Treasury funds, injecting $408 million—for the group’s third consecutive week of net inflows. Concerns over increases in investment income tax rates pushed investors to seek exposure in the tax-exempt products; the group pulled in $1.1 billion.

Tom talks about this week's mutual fund and ETF flows trends. Shrugging off relatively strong equity returns toward Wednesday's close, fund investors remained less risk seeking injecting $10.6 billion into money market funds out of the $13.1 billion of net inflows into the funds business (including open-end funds and ETFs). For the second week in three equity funds suffered net outflows, witnessing $2.6 billion in net redemptions, while money market funds (+$10.6 billion), taxable bond funds (+$4.5 billion), and municipal bond funds (+$0.6 billion) continued to attract net new money.

U.S. equity markets continued to see-saw as the initial optimism over the central bank announcements quickly lost momentum. For the week ended Wednesday all of the major U.S. indices were in the red by more than a percentage point, with the technology sector taking the brunt of the losses; the NASDAQ ended the period down 2.7%. Surprisingly, the dip in the markets did not seem to have a large impact on fund investors. Looking at the corresponding flows for the week, mutual funds and ETFs reported net inflows of $3.7 billion, with investors continuing to place the majority of new cash into taxable bond products (+$2.3 billion). The equity group was once again mixed; stock mutual funds posted net outflows of $1.1 billion, while their ETF counterparts continued to garner assets of $2.1 billion net. Interest in municipal debt funds jumped as investors injected $915 million into the group—their largest weekly net inflow since mid-August. Money market fund flows were relatively flat, ending the week with net redemptions of $506 million.

LIPPER WEEKLY U.S. FUND FLOWS VIDEO SERIES – SEPTEMBER 19, 2012

Published on 21 Sep 2012, by Matthew Lemieux
With the announcement by the FOMC of its entering another round of easing, equity markets pushed higher; the S&P 500 Index added 1.7% for the week ended September 19. Following suit, mutual funds and ETFs (excluding money market funds) added roughly $16.6 billion to their accounts as investors’ appetite for risk accelerated. Overall, equity products reported net inflows of $11.4 billion for the week. ETFs were once again the focus, adding $13.3 billion net. Despite the sanguine feelings, investors in equity mutual funds (-$1.9 billion) were not convinced; they pulled money out of the asset class for the sixth consecutive week. With the noticeable shift to equity products in general, taxable bond products were no worse for wear; investors injected $4.9 billion net into the group for the week—its eleventh consecutive week of net inflows.

With the dog days of summer upon us many investors focused their attention away from the anemic markets and towards the potential fallout of both hurricane Isaac and the Republican National Convention. But despite this there was some optimistic data released on the current state of the economy. July GDP was revised upwards to 1.7%, home prices continued to strengthen, and consumer spending increased for the first time in three months. Combined with relatively quite news overseas and anticipated action from the Fed, investors injected $5.8 billion into mutual funds and ETFs—excluding money markets.

Despite a positive movement in the markets equity mutual funds and ETFs reported net redemptions of $4.1 billion, continuing their roller coaster ride over the past eight weeks. Once again SPDR S&P 500 (SPY) had a heavy influence over the aggregate numbers pushing out roughly $3.9 billion of the total. Equity mutual funds were able to eke out a net inflow of $133 million and although relatively flat it was a large improvement over the roughly $5 billion in net redemptions experienced over the previous two weeks. Taxable bond funds posted their fifth consecutive week of inflows at $5.2 billion as investors continued to allocate cash to both corporate investment grade (+$1.6 billion) and high yield (+$809 million) products. Municipal bond funds also ended the period strongly with net inflows of $1.1 billion—the group’s seventeenth week of consecutive inflows. Money markets ended the week with net sales of $11.9 billion.

Overall, equity markets faired quite well this week as news over previous concerns in the Eurozone was quite muted and earnings were generally good among the tech giants and most U.S. banks. Investors took this in stride as U.S. markets ended the week up and investors injected roughly $6.1 billion into equity products. Although a large number, most of the inflows were once again attributed to SPDR S&P 500 Index ETF (SPY) which added 2.2 billion to its coffers. Taxable bond funds continue to garner assets as the group added $2.8 billion for the week. Although Corp-High Yield posted inflows of $821 million, most investors remained comfortable allocating cash to higher quality paper with Corp-Investment Grade products reporting net inflows of $1.1 billion. Municipal debt funds also posted net inflows at $837 million while money market accounts gave back $18.7 billion of their previous weeks inflows.

Despite the ever increasing concern over global economic conditions, investors closed the quarter out strongly with all major U.S. equity indices ending June with monthly returns well over 3.5%. Overall, mutual funds and ETFs reported net inflows of $3.2 billion for the week with Equity products garnering an impressive $10.3 billion—their largest weekly gain since September 14, 2011. Unfortunately this action did not seem to be a broad indicator of market sentiment as roughly $7.0 billion was solely attributed to what seems to be large institutional moves into the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY). Taxable Bond funds ended the period with net outflows of just $100 million. Although fixed income mutual funds (+$1.3 billion) continued to keep investors attention, their ETF counterparts suffered net redemptions of $1.4 billion with investors moving out of shorter term treasury products—a possible side effect of both the continuation of Operation Twist as well as initial reports of positive moves toward new policies in the Eurozone. Municipal Bond funds posted their twelfth consecutive week of inflows at $317 million while Money Market products pushed $7.4 billion out their doors.

After sealing the best week of the year for the Dow Jones Industrial Average (up 3.6%) on Friday, markets continued their erratic behaviour. Investors cheered the decision by China to cut its interest rates in order to prop up its economy along with the news that first-time filers for jobless benefits in the U.S. declined to 377,000. However, the reality of Spain asking European officials for rescue funds for its troubled banking sector along with Greece's upcoming elections placed a pall over the market. Investors were net redeemers, removing $391 million from the fund business (including open-end funds and ETFs) for the week ended Wednesday, June 13, 2012. However, the entirety of net outflows were from money market funds (-$11.7 billion), while equity funds took in $9.8 billion, taxable bond fund coffers attracted $1.1 billion in net new money, and municipal debt funds attracted $0.4 billion. Tom Roseen discusses Lipper's U.S. weekly fund flows.

Despite an upward correction towards the end of the week, investors were once again on their heels as lackluster unemployment data and a downward revision of Q1 GDP put the pace of the U.S. recovery in question. News from overseas continued to deteriorate as all eyes were on Spanish banks after their treasury minister warned they may soon be shut out of the market. Overall, investors felt comfortable as net sellers, pulling roughly $8.0 billion from U.S. mutual funds and ETFs.

Matthew Lemieux reviews Lipper's U.S. weekly fund flows for the week ended May 16, 2012. U.S. markets continued to reel as Eurozone concerns were once again at the forefront of investors’ minds. Paired with natural May selling pressures equity investors continued to be net redeemers for the week ending May 16, 2012. Despite $2.6 billion in net outflows from equity mutual funds and ETFs, investors continued to allocate cash to fixed income products and kept overall fund flows—ex-money markets—in the positive at $1.3 billion.
