Volatility continued to dominate Wall Street throughout May, as many investors seemed to have followed the adage 'sell in May, then go away.'

As we write on May 31, the markets are again giving mixed signals. Yet, the most recent meeting minutes released by the Federal Reserve (Fed) meant more optimism among market participants. As a result, major stock exchanges and numerous exchange-traded funds (ETFs) rallied last week.

Today, we review ETFs that were either clear winners or apparent losers in May. Our list offers just a glimpse of numerous funds’ monthly performances and excludes leveraged and inverse ETFs.

Several of these funds could inspire readers to put together long-term diversified portfolios within their risk/return parameters. We’ve already covered many of these ETFs, and we plan to discuss others in the future.
