Best ETFs – iShares Core S&P 500 (IVV)

iShares185 The Best ETFs and Worst ETFs of 2013According to industry research and consultancy firm ETFGI, iShares ETFs topped the list of best ETFs in terms of inflows, with a whopping $57.3 billion of inflows year-to-date through the end of November.

A key fund in its global market share dominance is the iShares Core S&P 500 ETF (IVV). IVV is the iShares version of an S&P 500 ETF, and it managed net inflows of $3 billion in November alone.

The big difference between IVV and the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) is that iShares reinvests dividends earned by the underlying stocks daily. SPY, as a unit investment trust, can only do so quarterly … creating a cash drag. In 2013 that cost SPY investors approximately 73 basis points performance and helped the IVV make the list of the year’s best ETFs.
