Zacks: Among 150 New ETFs in 2015, JETS One of the Few to Stand Out

from Zacks Investment Research July 13, 2015

A recent Zacks Investment Research piece includes the U.S. Global Jets ETF (JETS) in a discussion of the most noteworthy exchange-traded funds to hit the market in the first half of 2015. Those that made the list did so because they meet writer Eric Dutram’s personal criteria.

Among approximately 150 new products, JETS is recognized for offering investors an airline industry-focused ETF after the close of the previous one. Dutram draws attention to JETS’ broad exposure to different areas of the airline space, from domestic and foreign airliners to other related companies in the industry.
