These ”units” can be traded back and forth just like stocks, but can also be created or destroyed to accommodate investor demand. Each week we monitor the week-over-week change in shares outstanding data, to keep a lookout for those ETFs experiencing notable inflows (many new units created) or outflows (many old units destroyed). Creation of new units will mean the underlying holdings of the ETF need to be purchased, while destruction of units involves selling underlying holdings, so large flows can also impact the individual components held within ETFs.

Rather than treat this underperforming sector as a short side trading vehicle, my recommendation is to use a tool like our Portfolio Health Check to zero in on the strongest and weakest stocks in the XLI and trade on the right side of the market with those bullish stocks.
