This ETF offers 3x daily leveraged exposure to an index consisting of healthcare stocks, including companies engaged in the manufacture of health care products and materials, and those responsible for providing health-related services. Given the narrow focus and the leveraged exposure, CURE doesn't belong in any long-term, buy-and-hold portfolios; this ETF is designed for risk-tolerant investors looking to express a bullish outlook on a specific sector of the U.S. economy over a relatively short period of time. Investors looking to establish a non-leveraged tilt towards health care stocks have a number of choices in the Health & Biotech Equities ETFdb Category, including XLV (which is linked to the same index as this product). Investors considering this leveraged ETF should understand the impact that the daily reset feature has on the risk/return profile. CURE is designed to offer 3x leveraged exposure over the course of a single trading session only; those holding this fund for longer or shorter than this time period may experience returns that vary (sometimes significantly) from the target multiple. CURE can still be used effectively as part of longer-term strategies; investors must simply understand the nuances of compounding returns in a daily reset fund, and be willing/able to monitor and rebalance as needed. Investors looking to make a leveraged bet against health care stocks have SICK available, while those seeking 2x exposure may prefer RXL (long) or RXD (short).
