Use This ETF to Tiptoe Into Tech Shares

iShares Edge MSCI USA Momentum Factor, a new member of the Kiplinger ETF 20, stayed ahead of its benchmarks.

The Kiplinger ETF 20, our favorite exchange-traded fund picks, have done their job and kept pace with their respective benchmarks so far this year. Given recent global market declines, though, that means most have lost ground since the start of 2018. For example, after leading the stock market higher for most of 2017, tech stocks fell hard and fast this year. Over a four-week period in March and April, tech shares declined 7.2%, compared with a 4.2% drop in the broad stock market.
