Two of the three most active ETFs stayed on the high road in the past month, while one has moved down a peg.
SPY has gained 1.6% in the past month, while the tech-laden QQQ leapt 3.5%. But IWM, which tracked small-cap stocks in the stock market , slipped 0.9%.
For the year to date, SPY has produced a gain of almost 8% for investors vs. nearly 10% for QQQ and 1% for IWM.
Look back at 2013 and the tables were turned, with IWM up 39%, QQQ up 37% and SPY ahead 32%.
