Matthew Lemieux reviews Lipper's U.S. weekly fund flows for the week ended May 18, 2011. Increasing concern about inflation as well as a drop in retail sales couldn’t keep investors out of the game as equity mutual funds posted net inflows of $1.6 billion for the week ending May 18, 2011. Taxable Bond products experienced their twenty-second consecutive week of inflows at $3.9 billion. Municipal Bond Funds continued to shed assets with weekly net outflows of $145 million; their twenty-seventh straight week of outflows. Money Market Funds pushed out $9.4 billion; continuing their roller-coaster ride as they experienced $16.8 billion of inflows last week.
