SPDR S&P Retail ETF (NYSEArca:XRT)
Why XRT Will Be In Focus: XRT tracks an index designed to represent broad retail stocks domiciled in the US. As such, top holdings feature blue chip firms like Chico's (NYSE:CHS), Office Depot (NYSE:ODP), Priceline.com (NASDAQ:PCLN), and many others. The fund, which debuted in 2006, has approximately $675 million in total assets. Tuesday's U.S. advanced retail sales report will be a big moment for XRT, as it will likely define the remainder of this ETF's week. That report is expected to make a nice jump from 0.4% to 1.0%, a welcomed gain. If these figures come in as predicted, look for XRT to gain some momentum, but a miss or negative guidance could spark a selling trend [see also Highlighting The Kings Of The Dividend ETFs].
