    5 Leveraged ETFs for Active Traders

    Few asset classes are as seductive as leveraged exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Other than leveraged ETFs, where else in the fund universe (without using options) can investors make a bet on a simple index, such as the S&P 500 or Nasdaq-100 Index, and amplify those benchmarks’ gains to the tune of 200% or even 300% in a single trading day?

    Pharma, Biotech Bull ETFs Leading the Charge

    The rising prices of drug treatments, more dependence on immuno-oncology and mergers focused on mid-sized biotech company acquisitions are just a few factors spurning the growth in the biotechnology and pharmaceuticals industry, giving ETFs like  Daily Pharmaceutical & Medical Bull 3X Shares  (PILL) and Direxion Daily S&P Biotech Bull 3X ETF (LABU) exceptional returns. PILL seeks investment results equal to 300% of the daily performance of the Dynamic Pharmaceutical Intellidex Index and concentrates its allocations towards securities of the index and other financial instruments that provide daily leveraged exposure to the index. The index itself just matched a previous high and PILL itself is posting year-to-date returns of 6.36% according to performance figures from Yahoo! Finance.

    Biotech Sector Continue to Dazzle Despite Market Distress

    Biotech stocks—with their binary outcomes and potential FDA approvals or denials—should whip around, pending various outcomes. It doesn’t help that President Trump (seemingly at random) decides periodically that we all pay too much for drugs. For biotech stocks to work on the long side investors’ risk appetite would have to take off or a major approval could drive the stocks up.
