WTIU

UBS ETRACS - ProShares Daily 3x Long Crude ETN

WTIU Fund Description

The UBS ETRACS — ProShares Daily 3x Long Crude ETN provides daily 3x leveraged exposure to an index of WTI crude oil futures contracts.

WTIU Factset Analytics Insight

Like most geared products, WTIU is intended as a trading tool, not a buy-and-hold investment. The note provides 3x exposure to its index for a one-day period. The daily reset function means investors holding WTIU for longer periods are exposed to the effects of compounding, and could see returns that vary greatly from 3x exposure. WTIU’s Bloomberg index tracks oil futures contracts that are rolled every other month, striking a balance between spot-price sensitivity, turnover, and contango effects.
As an ETN, WTIU is backed by the credit of UBS, rather than futures and cash as in a commodity pool structure. Also, investors get a 1099 at tax time instead of a K-1. WTIU is expensive to hold, but trading cost matters more for this tactical tool. Also consider Citigroup’s UWT, a direct competitor, or ProShares’ UCO, a 2x crude oil fund which uses a commodity pool structure. WTID is WTIU’s inverse counterpart, while OIIL from Credit Suisse tracks the same index without leverage.
