The Dow Jones Industrial Average dipped to 15,470 from 15,499 in the week ended Wednesday, August 7, but investors maintained their fascination with equity mutual funds, making some of the heaviest commitments to their accounts so far this year. During the week, $3.97 billion of net new money was added to mutual funds in the sector and equity exchange-traded fund (ETF) received $2.31 billion. However, investors’ tastes differed regarding types of equity investments, with mutual fund investors preferring small-cap stock funds and ETF investors favoring mid-caps. iShares Core S&P Mid-Cap ETF (IJH), with $2.17 billion flooding its coffers, recorded its highest weekly inflows ever. Meanwhile, bond fund investors had very dissimilar views.

With U.S. equity markets last Friday closing down for four of the last five weeks, it was clear that investors continued to be spooked by the thought of “tapering” by the Federal Reserve. The hope that Chairman Bernanke’s recent press conference would calm nerves fell flat as the S&P 500 experienced this past week its largest two-day drop since last November. The concern seemed that it would be short lived, since on Monday the Dow was able to rebound nearly 473 points from its mid-day low. This was driven by upbeat economic news as well as tamer reiterations from the Fed that any pullback of quantitative easing would be based on the economic outlook, which may not be as great as it had previously suggested. Unfortunately, this late rally in stocks did not deter investors from pulling back some of their fund exposure.

Reinforced commitment from the Fed and better-than-expected nonfarm payroll numbers helped convince investors to continue pushing up the U.S. equity markets. New tops for domestic stock indices and limited opportunities for yield from bonds fed demand for riskier assets. While many analysts advised caution, it proved too hard not to participate, and investors injected roughly $16.6 billion net into mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) (excluding money market funds) for the week ended May 8.

It was not long after both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 closed at new all-time highs on Thursday, April 11, that investors started to show concern over the sustainability of the recent rally. News from China kicked off broad selling on Monday, April 15; China reported disappointing Q1 GDP and March industrial production numbers. Weakness in the broader commodity markets, including the largest ever one-day drop in the price of gold, also helped fuel investors’ concerns; volatility jumped and the global markets continued to shed value through Wednesday. Despite the strong selloff in stocks, U.S. mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs), excluding money market funds, reported net inflows of $6.5 billion for the week ended April 17.

U.S. investors were net purchasers of fund assets for the week ended April 3, 2013, injecting over $5.6 billion into the funds business (including conventional funds and exchange-traded funds [ETFs]). However, for the fifth consecutive week municipal debt funds (-$113 million) suffered net redemptions as investors remained concerned about municipal bond funds losing their tax-exempt status during the upcoming budget negotiations and the risk of underfunded state pension plans putting undue pressure on state coffers. Conventional equity funds and equity ETFs witnessed their fifth consecutive week of net inflows (+$2.2 billion), despite some market gurus’ call of a probable near-term pullback in the market. During the week investors continued to inject net new money into taxable bond funds (+$2.4 billion) and money market funds (+$1.2 billion).

During the past week many investors tried to decipher the possible effects of a Cypriot exit from the Eurozone and the knock-on consequences of a bailout structured on the shoulders of savers. Although an agreement for a European Central Bank-led bailout was reached over the weekend, the initial rally in the markets on Monday was short lived as analysts still wondered what the bank restructuring would mean for other European countries. Despite the concerns, U.S. indices trended upward for most of the week as investors focused on strong home price and manufacturing numbers, a momentum that would push both the Dow and the S&P 500 to close out March at record highs. Fund investors also did not seem rattled by any new Eurozone risks; mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs), excluding money market funds, recorded net inflows of $4.5 billion.
