Barron’s has recognized the increased interest in ETFs. In today’s issue they offered web sources for readers looking for assistance in their ETF research.

"Blogs also follow the ETF beat, albeit in a different, less

ETFtrends (, for example, which is piloted by Tom Lydon, a 20-year money manager, recently posited the question when the first small-cap technology ETF would launch. He points out that the largest small-cap growth ETF is the iShares Russell 2000 Growth Index (IWO), and even its technology sector weighting is only 22%. Other posts compare exchange-traded funds and index funds, highlight newly introduced ETFs, and report on their growth in 2005: Assets in December were nearly 31% above those a year earlier."
