  • Pininvest Analysis

The cluster of specialized Semiconductors ETFs on the volatility / performance chart should not lead to the false interpretation of boring similarity even though the industry is heavily concentrated

The performance spread between (modified) market-weighted iShares PHLX SOX Semiconductor Sector Index Fund SOXX/NASDAQ and equal weighted SPDR S&P Semiconductor ETF XSD/NYSEARCA demonstrates the effect of a tilt towards much smaller growth companies

Because the industry as a whole may well be exposed to a market reversal, the theme includes aggressive 3-times bull and bear daily exposure to a (modified) market-weighted basket of semiconductor companies. The 2 Direxion funds are leveraged one-day bets and the investment is not recommended for all investors but the trend – tracked over short time periods – will be a valuable indicator
