PUTW Fund Description

PUTW tracks an index of put options on the S&P 500 index. The index writes at-the-money put options and rolls its exposure monthly.

PUTW Factset Analytics Insight

PUTW offers a pure-play take on a well-established option strategy in an ETF. The fund writes at-the-money put options on the S&P 500 index, fully collateralized by cash and cash-like vehicles. The appeal is twofold: the premium earned from selling the options, which enables it to earn a return in a sidewise market; and generally lower volatility than the S&P 500. The strategy forgoes big upside if the S&P takes off and has plenty of downside if stocks tank.PUTW launched in February 2015 but tracks an index dating back to 2007. Its at-the-money, index based exposure differs from active or alternative takes on putwrites offered by HVPV. Investors can also consider covered call ETFs like PBP. PUTW intends to distribute any gains annually and generally expects them to be taxed at a blended 60% long-term/40% short-term capital gains tax rate. (Kudos to issuer WisdomTree for rare clarity on this point.) The ETF charges a very competitive fee relative to peers.
