SSO Fund Description
SSO provides 2x daily leveraged exposure to a market cap-weighted index of 500 large- and mid-cap US companies selected by S&P.
SSO Factset Analytics Insight
As a levered product, SSO is not a buy-and-hold ETF, it's a short-term tactical instrument. Like many levered funds, it delivers its 2x exposure only over a one-day holding period. Over longer periods, returns can vary significantly from its headline 2x target returns. The 500 underlying companies are some of the most well-known firms in the world and offer a broad exposure to the US large-cap market. But since the selection is committee based, some companies that we consider mid-cap may be included. The index is float-adjusted market cap weighted. Knowledge of the benefits, risks and pitfalls of levered products is paramount when investing in this fund.
