Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) trade like stocks, but instead of “stocks,” investors actually buy and sell “units.” These “units” can be traded like shares, but can also be created or destroyed to meet investor demand. Every week, we monitor the week-over-week trend in outstanding stock data, to monitor which ETFs are experiencing inflows (many new units created) or outflows (many old units destroyed) notables. The creation of new units will mean that the ETF’s underlying holdings must be bought, while the destruction of units involves the sale of underlying holdings, so large flows can also impact the individual components held in ETFs.
