The fund has seen more than $300 million flow out going into quartersend, noting that the ETF has as an asset base of about $5.3 billion and XLU is again flirting with multi-year highs after yesterdays move. XLU has handily out-performed the broad market as measured by the S&P 500 year to date, so profit taking here perhaps makes sense for tactical managers that may be looking to shift assets into other sectors, especially given the propensity for Utilities to move erratically around Fed rate decisions and in tandem with bond rates which have been exceptionally volatile in the past 72 hours. Top holdings in XLU are DUK (9.33%), D (8.14%), NEE (7.96%), SO (7.55%), and EXC (5.27%), with these names expected to release quarterly earnings results for the most part in the last week of April into early May. While not exclusively Utility stock composed in all cases, there are also several interesting funds that track the Infrastructure space that have healthy sector allocations to utilities.

Thats because over the last 50 years, April has been by far the strongest month of the year for the Dow. Over the past 20 and 50 years, the Dow has averaged a gain of more than 2 percent in April, beating every other month of the year.
