Exchange traded funds (ETFs) trade just like stocks, but rather of"shares" investors are in fact buying and selling"units". These"units" can be exchanged back and forth just like stocks, but could also be created or destroyed to accommodate investor demand. Each week we monitor the week-over-week change in shares outstanding data, to keep a lookout for those ETFs experiencing noteworthy inflows (many brand new units created) or outflows (many older units destroyed). Creation of new components will mean the underlying holdings of this ETF have to be bought, while destruction of units involves selling underlying holdings, therefore large flows can also impact the individual components held within ETFs.
