UPW Factset Analytics Insight
As a levered product, UPW is not a buy-and-hold ETF; it’s a short-term tactical instrument. Like many levered funds, it promises 2x exposure only for 1 day. Over longer periods, returns can vary significantly from 2x exposure to its underlying index. The companies from UPW’s underlying index transport much of the elements we use on a daily basis including electricity, natural gas, oil and water. As a short-term product that’s designed to provide exposure for 1 day, total costs are heavily weighted toward trading costs. UPW’s liquidity is suboptimal with middling volume and volatile spreads.
