Analyst Report

This actively managed ETF targets junk bonds seeking to provide investors with high levels of current income while looking to mitigate downside risks as much as possible. The fund managers look to do this by focusing on the secondary market of bonds while at the same time avoiding recently issued notes that were released at the height of the bubble in 2006-2008. The company also shuns a 'cap weighted' approach which they believe gives higher weightings to the companies that are most in debt, leaving a portfolio dangerously overrepresented in subpar bonds. So far, the fund has outperformed all others in the ETFdb Category by a wide margin while paying a much higher yield as well. Thanks to this outperformance, investors should consider HYLD as a go to choice for exposure in the junk bond space, so long as they can stomach the relatively high expense ratio. The fund could be especially beneficial for those looking for a boost to current incomes far above comparable Treasury bond levels and other products, an important factor in today's low yield environment.
