5 Most-Loved ETFs of the Best Week of 2024

Overall, ETFs pulled in $7.2 million in capital last week. U.S. fixed-income ETFs led the way higher with $3.1 million in inflows, followed by inflows of $1.9 million in U.S. equity ETFs and $1.3 million in leveraged ETFs.

iShares MBS ETF MBB, Vanguard S&P 500 ETF VOO, SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust SPY, Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF VTI and SPDR Bloomberg Barclays High Yield Bond ETF JNK dominated the top creation list last week.

Wall Street wrapped up the best week of 2024 with the S&P 500 and the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index gaining 2.7% and 4.2%, respectively. The large-cap index snapped three weeks of losses, while the Nasdaq ended four straight weeks of declines (read: 5 Leveraged ETF Winners on S&P 500's Best Week Since November).

The surge was driven by a renewed artificial intelligence craze after the tech titans — Alphabet GOOGL and Microsoft MSFT — fueled optimism following their blowout first-quarter earnings. The comments from both companies that spending on AI and cloud computing is paying off has erased all the pessimism brought in by Meta Platforms META after it issued weak revenue guidance and predicted higher capital expenses for 2024.
