GNAF Factset Analytics Insight
GNAF offers inverse exposure to an index of “FANG” companies (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Alphabet [formerly Google]), as well as 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 (ADRs are acceptable), classified in 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 of constituents when the note launched—so investors can expect a high level of concentration. All holdings are equally weighted. As a geared product with daily resets, GNAF is designed as a short-term trading tool and not a long-term investment vehicle. Long-term returns could materially differ from those of the underlying index due to daily compounding. Although GNAF’s fee may seem high, trading costs should be the greater concern for short-term positions.
