This ETF offers inverse leveraged exposure to the broad-based Barclays Capital U.S. 20+ Year Treasury Index, making it a powerful tool for investors with a bearish short-term outlook for U.S. long-term treasuries. An investment in leveraged debt can be a very risky one, as there are numerous factors that can converge to drastically change the returns of these products. Investing in leveraged bond ETFs requires a careful understand of the specific economy, in this case the US, and what kind of policies and regulations are currently in place and are set to be enforced in the future. TBF can be a powerful tool for sophisticated investors, but should be avoided by those with a low risk tolerance or a buy-and-hold strategy. For those who feel educated enough on the specific economy and its inner workings, this ETF can be a great addition to an investment portfolio.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for TBF on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating.
