On a day-to-day basis, most industries/sectors tend not to have dramatic price movements. However, material news/information that is fundamental to an industry/sector's business does get released periodically. This type of news has the potential to move a tracking exchange traded fund (ETF) by several percentage points (in either direction). But even if an ETF has already moved, it might still warrant a look. After good news, an industry/sector may increase in value, but this momentum can often continue on for more upside. Likewise, bad news often knocks down an ETF's price more than is warranted, causing it to sell at bargain levels until the price moves back up.

Check out which ETFs made the biggest moves in June. By comparison, the entire DJIA was down -1.24% and the S&P 500 was down -1.83% over the same period. (For related reading, see How Now, Dow? What Moves The DJIA?)
