We trimmed some fat off our U.S. Mid-Cap-Blend holdings today. I do not foresee any problems with the WisdomTree U.S. MidCap Earnings Fund (EZM : $EZM); we’re just taking some profits off the table to use elsewhere in the market. Price paid $29.08. Price sold $38.41. To see why the Deep Value ETF Accumulator invests in EZM, check out the chart attached below.

Utilities seem to be holding up quite well even with the threat of interest rate hikes. We sold a few shares of the Guggenheim S&P 500® Equal Weight Utilities ETF (RYU : $RYU). I don’t foresee any problems in the Utilities sector at this time; we’re just trimming some fat off this position. Price paid $74.89. Price sold $90.63.

We started a position in the iShares MSCI Brazil Capped ETF (EWZ : $EWZ). Folks, you’ve gotta buy this stuff when it’s on sale. I wrote a short article in May 2017 about this ETF; you can read it right here: Is the Brazil ETF Worth the Risk? EWZ $EWZ.
