TECS Factset Analytics Insight
TECS offers investors a means of playing out their bearish bets on the technology sector. The fund provides -3x exposure to the S&P Technology Select Sector Index—a market-cap-weighted index of US tech companies selected from the S&P 500. TECS tracks the exact same index as XLK—the Technology Select Sector SPDR ETF. That makes it a narrow bet against the highly concentrated tech sector, with Microsoft, Apple, and Alphabet comprising a huge fraction of the index. Unlike XLK, TECS is designed to be a short-term trading vehicle—not a long-term investment. TECS rebalances its exposure on a daily basis. As a result, the fund's long-term returns are difficult to predict due to compounding and path dependency. As a result, most traders will be willing to overlook the fund's steep fee. TECS trades reasonably well, with decent daily volume and modest spreads.
