5 Must-Watch ETF Charts After Q3 Earnings

The Q3 reporting cycle has effectively come to an end. Earnings of 94.8% of the S&P 500 market capitalization that has been reported so far is down 8.1% on 1.2% lower revenues, with 84.6% beating EPS estimates and 75.9% beating revenue estimates. This is notably a better performance when compared with the same group of companies in the first half of the year. Additionally, the EPS and revenue beat percentages are tracking significantly higher than the other comparable periods.

Given this, several equity ETFs have impressed with their performances and generated handsome returns over the trailing one-month period. While there are winners in many corners of the space, below are five ETFs that buoyed up on strong earnings results. In addition, we have given a chart for their one-month performance and compared them with the broad market fund SPY and the broad sector.
