FNGDBMO REX MicroSectors FANG+ Index -3X Inverse Leveraged ETN

FNGD Factset Analytics Insight
FNGD offers -3x exposure to an index of “FANG” companies (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Alphabet [formerly Google]), and other companies that exhibit similar characteristics. Presumably, the index will always include these five companies; an index committee is responsible for selecting the additional names. Eligible stocks must be listed on a US exchange (although ADRs are acceptable), classified in either the technology or consumer discretionary sectors, and exhibit similar traits to other technology and internet companies. At least ten stocks must be included in the index—the number it held when the note launched—so investors can expect a high level of concentration. All holdings are equally weighted. As a geared product, FNGD is designed as a short-term trading tool and not a long-term investment vehicle. The note tracks three times the inverse of the daily price movements of the index, so long-term returns could materially differ from those of the underlying index. Although FNGD’s fee may seem expensive, holding costs shouldn’t be a priority for short-term positions.
