Analyst Report

This ETN offers exposure to dividend-paying U.S. equities, making SDYL a potentially useful tool for either enhancing current returns derived from the equity portion of a portfolio or for scaling back risk exposure within a portfolio. While there are dozens of funds offering exposure to dividend-paying stocks, SDYL offers a somewhat unique approach to this strategy. This ETN applies 2x leverage to the underlying index, meaning that the yield generated is magnified as are the potential capital gains and losses. It’s worth noting that exposure is reset on a monthly basis; monthly leveraged ETNs seek to amplify the returns generated by the index over the course of a month, regardless of the volatility experienced by that index during the course of the month. SDYL offers an appealing risk/return profile for yield-hungry investors looking to maximize current income, although its monthly leverage strategy can lead to serious losses if the underlying assets decline in price over a prolonged period of time. Lastly, because of its product structure, SDYL exposes investors to the credit risk of the issuing institution.
