PSQ Factset Analytics Insight
PSQ makes a straight bet against the extremely popular ETF QQQ by providing inverse exposure to the Nasdaq-100—a 100-company index of firms listed on the tech-heavy NASDAQNasdaq that excludes financial firms. PSQ uses a combination of swaps on the Nasdaq-100 index, swaps onf QQQ, and Nasdaq-100 futures to achieve this exposure. As with most inverse and leveraged products, PSQ is designed to provide this exposure on a daily basis, not as a long-term inverse bet against the index. Anyone holding the fund for longer than a day will be exposed to the effects of compounding on returns, and will be unlikely to realize the stated exposure over extended periods of time. That being said, PSQ trades well and enjoys strong block liquidity. Its fees are high, but in-line with other funds in the inverse-equity segment.
