Analyst Report

This ETF offers exposure to one of the most widely followed indexes in the world (the S&P 500), but implements a unique twist that should generally reduce overall volatility and limit movements in both directions. Specifically, VIXH includes a call option on the VIX, a widely used measure of anticipated equity market volatility. Because the VIX tends to exhibit a strong negative correlation with stock markets -- meaning that it will generally rise when stocks tumble -- that component should increase in value when stocks decline. So in bear markets, the increase in the value of the call option position should at least partially offset losses in the stock component. In bull markets, however, the call option value will generally decline. That will obviously limit the upside of this ETF as well, partially offsetting the increase in the stock component. It should also be noted that VIXH is considerably more expensive than plain vanilla S&P 500 ETFs, some of which have expense ration 50 basis point or more lower than this fund. VIXH can potentially be used in a number of different ways. It certainly can be used as a core holding in a long-term, buy-and-hold portfolio, replacing traditional long only ETFs that offer exposure to U.S. stocks. Or it can be a tactical tool that investors utilize when looking to scale back risk exposure in their portfolios while still being net long in U.S. stocks.
