Despite inflows from the primary market with +$24M of new shares, ETFs seeking to replicate semiconductor stocks indices experienced a bad market session on Friday with a negative daily performance standing at -3,09%. This brought the year-to-date cumulated return of this segment down to +2,28% after reaching 6.80% mid-February. The continued coronavirus outbreak sparks concerns over a global economic slowdown and could cause a tech pullback. Nasdaq experienced its worth performance over a one month period last Friday. Even though some predict a tech sell-off, semiconductor stocks collected +$472,81M since the beginning of the year. Investors have been increasing their exposure to semiconductor stocks and seem pretty confident with the potential the segment has. Indeed, some companies already reported their financial results with therefore fresh data and more particularly expected rising sales as well as wider margins. This relatively small segment gathers 7 ETFs, exposed to 6 indices, for a total of $5,23Bn of assets under management.
