PILL Fund Description
PILL provides 3x daily exposure to a multi-factor index of pharmaceutical companies in the US.
PILL Factset Analytics Insight
PILL seeks to deliver daily investment results of 3x the performance of the Dynamic Pharmaceutical Intellidex Index. The underlying index is built using a quant-driven methodology to select and weight pharmaceutical companies based on fundamental and risk factors. Unlike PJP—an unlevered PowerShares’ ETF following the same index—PILL uses derivatives, such as swaps, to achieve its exposure. It’s worth noting that the fund is not a pure pharma play, as some biotech companies also find their way into the index.As with all levered funds PILL should not be expected to deliver 3 times the performance of its index for periods longer than 1 day—compounding and path-dependency can cause significant deviations over longer time frames. PILL is only appropriate for short-term, tactical bets and not as a permanent holding. Hence, the cost of getting in and out of the fund—spreads, commissions, and any premium/discount—is more important than the fund’s expense ratio.PILL originally provided 2 times the daily performance of the index, but failed to attract interest; the fund closed in March 2017. The current version tracks the same index, but with 3x leverage and a higher expense ratio.
