Exchange traded funds (ETFs) trade just like stocks, but instead of ''shares'' investors are actually buying and selling ''units''. 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.

Looking today at week-over-week shares outstanding changes among the universe of ETFs covered at ETF Channel, one standout is the iShares Russell Midcap Value Index Fund (AMEX:IWS) where we have detected an approximate $30.8 million dollar inflow -- that's a 1.2% increase week over week in outstanding units (from 61,300,000 to 62,050,000). Among the largest underlying components of IWS, in trading today Marsh & McLennan Companies Inc. (NYSE:MMC) is off about 1.2%, Aon Corp. (NYSE:AON) is down about 1.1%, and Progress Energy, Inc. (NYSE:PGN) is lower by about 1.2%. For a complete list of holdings, visit the IWS Holdings page
