UXI Fund Description
UXI provides daily 2x exposure to a market cap weighted index of US industrial companies.
UXI Factset Analytics Insight
UXI makes a bullish bet on US industrial stocks, but poor liquidity diminishes its attractiveness. The fund offers daily 2x exposure to its index and holding the fund longer than a day exposes the investor to the effects of compounding which can change the size and even the direction of the 2x multiple. UXI’s reference index is the Dow Jones U.S. Industrials index which is tracked in 1x fashion by hugely popular IYJ from iShares. The Dow Jones U.S. Industrials index is a market cap-weighted index of about 200 US industrial firms (and should not be confused with the famous Dow Jones Industrial Average, aka “the Dow”). Geared products like UXI are designed for short-term use, so liquidity is paramount. Unfortunately, UXI isn’t up to the challenge. Spreads are wide and volume is thin. Still, it’s the only choice for positive geared exposure to the space in an ETF wrapper.
