Aug 12, 2010 (04:08 PM EDT)


LOCUST VALLEY, N.Y., Aug. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- BNK Invest, Inc. announced the launch of the Staff ETF Articles section on ETFChannel.com.  Editors will post articles covering new and interesting developments in the ETF sector in order to bring users of the site pertinent and useful information every day.  Articles will include the Biggest ETF Gainers and Losers, ETFs showing Unusually High Volume, announcements about new actively managed ETFs and passively managed ETFs, as well as articles showing how ETFs are reacting to current market trends.

In addition to offering these ETF Articles on the ETFChannel.com web site, headlines will be syndicated out to other key partner sites looking to add valuable ETF content to their web sites.  Any web site looking to integrate the ETF Channel content can simply access the RSS feed located at http://www.etfchannel.com/rss.

ETFChannel.com is aimed at retail investors and financial advisors trying to maximize the opportunities in the market with ETFs.  The site includes a number of ground-breaking features that allow investors to dig deeper into ETFs.  By using features like the ETF Finder, investors can identify ETFs that hold certain stocks or that cover certain sectors.  Additionally, ETFs are broken down into lists by category and investment focus.  For example, investors interested in energy, can simply click on the Energy ETFs category and find more than 25 ETFs that are focused on the energy sector.  Categories are also broken down into "Leveraged ETFs" and "Short ETFs", with subcategories such as "Financial Short ETFs", or "Metals Leveraged ETFs."

"Since our July launch, we've seen an overwhelmingly positive response from individual investors and financial advisors who have registered for free at ETFChannel.com," says Adam Menzel, COO of BNK Invest, Inc. "Users of the site have adopted the ETF Screener as their primary method of drilling down to ETFs that interest them and expose their portfolios to different sectors and industries."

ETFChannel.com provides an expansive scope of data.  With in-depth insight into each fund, investors will benefit from stronger research and a better understanding about the ETFs that comprise their portfolio.

The site also analyzes trends in the ETF data to create ETF Lists to help investors.  For example, the site has created a screen for the "High Yield ETFs." Currently the top ETF on that list yields approximately 8.8% and there are currently 13 ETFs with yields greater than 5%.  Another interesting screen is the "ETFs With Mostly Foreign-Listed Holdings."  This list looks at equity ETFs that have the majority of their holdings in companies traded on exchanges outside the US and Canada, rather than owning foreign stocks through ADRs traded in North America.

"The growth in investor interest surrounding ETFs is staggering.  As more ETFs enter the market it is going to become increasingly important for investors to have access to timely and accurate information.  With the release of ETFChannel.com articles and the continued strength of our ETF Screener, we believe that our site is bringing investors what they need to stay ahead of the curve."
