DVYL Factset Analytics Insight
DVYL provides 2x levered exposure to the Dow Jones US Select Dividend Index, reset monthly. Unlike most ETNs, DVYL pays a monthly coupon linked to twice the dividend payments of the index components. Like all levered funds, DVYL tends to underperform in a volatile market when held for longer than its monthly leverage reset period. This longer reset period means that DYVL will follow its underlying index more closely over long time periods than a daily-reset product, but the note's effective leverage may vary from the stated 2x during times of high volatility. Unlevered exposure to the same index is available through iShares DVY, and both funds show a bias toward small firms with a track record of steady and increasing dividends. It's a sound take on high-yield equity, if somewhat unusual. DVYL lacks the great liquidity you'd like to see in a geared product, with weak daily volume and wide spreads, but the note can be traded fairly with care.. As an ETN, DVYL carries the credit risk of the issuer, UBS.
