The Invesco Solar ETF (TAN) is the top-performing non-leveraged ETF over the past five years, a role the fund has held for several months.
TAN takes the top spot on VettaFi’s list of the 100 Highest 5-Year ETF Returns, boasting a 23.5% five-year annualized return. TAN is trailed by the VanEck Semiconductor ETF (SMH) and the SPDR S&P Semiconductor ETF (XSD), which have returned 21.2% and 20.9%, respectively, annualized.
The fund has declined 4.1% year-to-date and is current trading below its recent and all-time highs. The fund is well positioned with the passing of the Inflation Reduction Act last August. The bill promises to offer a raft of tax credits to help stimulate the adoption of clean energy technologies. It also offers spending for low-income and minority communities that suffer disproportionately from pollution.
