SDOW Factset Analytics Insight
SDOW is an aggressive, 1-day bet against the Dow Jones Industrial Average—perhaps the most famous index in the world. The DJIA overweights on industrials relative to our large-cap benchmark, and underweights technology. In particular, SDOW represents a bet against firms like Goldman Sachs, 3M, IBM, and Boeing rather than the large-cap market as a whole. The fund is designed to deliver 3x the inverse performance of the 30 firms in the DJIA, weighted by price. This geared inverse exposure is daily, and anyone holding for longer than a day will be exposed to impacts of compounding, which—especially in a 3x geared product—will prevent the fund from delivering its promised exposure over extended periods. Investors who don't have the expertise or knowledge needed to true-up their exposure every day should either avoid SDOW or hold it for its prescribed 1-day holding period. What's more, the fund's expense ratio is high enough to make it extremely expensive to hold over longer horizons. For those using it tactically, the fund does its job, trading millions of dollars most days, with tiny spreads.
