NUGT Factset Analytics Insight
NUGT is a 3x leveraged bet on the NYSE Arca Gold Miners Index—a market-cap-weighted index of large gold and silver mining firms. Like most leveraged and inverse products, it's designed to provide a 1-day bet on the index. As such, NUGT is designed to be held for no more than one trading day. For longer periods, the effects of compounding may cause it to drift (sometimes greatly) from the 300% exposure it promises to provide to the NYSE Arca Gold Miners Index. The fund's annual fee is high, but since NUGT is designed for daily use, the trading costs are of greater importance. NUGT shines in liquidity with very strong daily volume and reasonable spreads considering its volatile exposure, which is why it lands on our Opportunities List.
