August brought upsets to TradeStation’s rankings as clients shifted attention to big technology companies. Major exchange-traded funds lost interest.
Apple (AAPL), which didn’t even make the Top 10 in June or July, was the busiest stock at TradeStation last month. The surge in activity came after a transformative earnings report drove the smart-phone giant into new record territory.
Chip maker Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), the top-performing tech stock so far this quarter, also joined the list.
SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY), the most popular symbol for most of the year, continued to slide down the rankings. iPath S&P 500 VIX (VXX) also slipped and other index-linked products like PowerShares QQQ Trust (QQQ) disappeared from the top 10. It may not be a surprise because these funds typically benefit from higher volatility, which has dwindled as the S&P 500 establishes new highs.
Here’s the complete list for August:
