The ETF field is crowded with analysts and reporters, but a few stand out as particularly worthwhile follows.

As ETF assets have grown in recent years, so too has the number of reporters and bloggers writing about them. Much of what’s purported to cover ETFs is actually general market commentary in disguise, and in most cases any ETF-specific news is a rehashing.
