7 Industrial ETFs to Consider as Earnings Season Approaches

Investors are rarely excited by the industrial sector. Unfortunately, when it comes to sheer performance in 2018, industrial ETFs are living up to that less-than-thrilling billing. As of Oct. 3rd, the Industrial Select Sector SPDR (NYSERCA:XLI), the largest industrial exchange traded fund (ETF) by assets, is up 6.5% year-to-date, well behind the 10.7% returned by the S&P 500. XLI is a diversified industrial ETF, one that features exposure to a dozen of the industrial sector's sub-industry groups. For investors, that trait is relevant because while broader industrial ETFs are lagging, some more focused industry funds related to the sector are thriving. Industrial ETFs are also worth considering in the near term because third-quarter earnings season is about to kick off in a big way. The Industrial Select Sector Index, XLI's underlying index, sees about three-quarters of its holdings report third-quarter results between Oct. 15th and Oct. 26th.
