What are Inverse ETFs? What are Leveraged ETFs? Part 3 🙌👍

Inverse and Leverage ETFs. Let's talk about leveraged exchange traded funds. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/Exchange-traded-funds.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! An inverse ETF basically inverses the performance so if you've got an inverse of the S&P500, if the S&P500 goes up then the S&P500 goes down. A leveraged ETF magnifies the gain - it aims to make 2 or 3 times the movement of the underlying asset it is tracking. You can also have an inverse leveraged ETF... TBT - aims to do twice the inverse of the 20+ Year Treasury Bond SDS - aims to do twice the inverse of the S&P 500 i.e. UltraShort S&P500 ETF TZA - aims to do triple the inverse of the Small Cap i.e. Direxion's Daily Small Cap Bear 3X Shares FAZ - aims to do triple the inverse of the Financials i.e. Direxion Financial Bear 3X (FAZ) ETF UVXY - VIX ETF but double.

Are ETFs index funds?
 
03:37
Most ETFs try to match an index—like the S&P 500—but not all. So when you hear someone compare index ETFs with traditional actively managed funds, it's important to know the differences. Learn more about how each type of fund responds to market risk, when manager risk becomes a factor, and how management differences can affect your overall costs—including your taxes. When you're ready to choose ETFs to invest in, consider Vanguard ETFs®, which are always commission-free when you buy them through a Vanguard Brokerage Account. Visit https://vgi.vg/2JEk9H3 for details. **You must buy and sell Vanguard ETF Shares through Vanguard Brokerage Services (we offer them commission-free) or through another broker (which may charge commissions). See the Vanguard Brokerage Services commission and fee schedules at https://vgi.vg/2Krv6gj for limits. Vanguard ETF Shares are not redeemable directly with the issuing fund other than in very large aggregations worth millions of dollars. ETFs are subject to market volatility. When buying or selling an ETF, you will pay or receive the current market price, which may be more or less than net asset value.** **Visit https://vgi.vg/2KrBkwY to obtain prospectuses—or, if available, summary prospectuses—for Vanguard ETFs and mutual funds. The prospectus contains investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses, and other information; read and consider carefully before investing.** All investing is subject to risk, including the possible loss of the money you invest. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss. The performance of an index is not an exact representation of any particular investment, as you cannot invest directly in an index. © 2018 The Vanguard Group, Inc. All rights reserved.

Looking to Hedge Volatility  Try These 2 ETFs
 
05:41
https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do The U.S. equity market recently got out of correction territory, but it is still volatile. As of Feb. 12, 2016, the S&P 500 Index, one of the main benchmark indices tracking large-cap U.S. equities, is down 8.77% year to date (YTD). Investors are looking for ways to hedge volatility while maintaining a diversified basket of assets. These two exchange-traded funds (ETFs) provide hedged exposure to the U.S. large-cap equity market. PowerShares S&P 500 Downside Hedged Portfolio The PowerShares S&P 500 Downside Hedged Portfolio (NYSEARCA: PHDG) is an actively managed ETF that seeks to provide positive returns in falling and rising markets uncorrelated to the broad equity or fixed-income markets. To achieve this objective, it implements a rules-based quantitative strategy to track the general performance of the S&P 500 Dynamic VEQTOR Index, the fund's benchmark index. The fund invests in common stocks comprising the S&P 500 Index, Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) Volatility Index-related securities and money market instruments. The CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) futures are an implied hedge against market downturns, since the futures tend to correlate negatively to the S&P 500 Index and provide positive returns in down markets. The fund manager monitors the fund's allocations and changes them based on predetermined rules. The fund can also benefit in up markets. As the level of volatility decreases, the fund reduces its allocation to VIX futures and increases its allocations in equities comprising the S&P 500 Index and S&P 500 futures contracts. As of Feb. 12, 2016, the PowerShares S&P 500 Downside Hedged Portfolio has total net assets of $343.2 million with 507 holdings. The fund's top five holdings are 15.37% in CME E-Mini Standard & Poor's 500 Index Future expiring in March 2016, 13.29% in CBOE Volatility Index Future expiring in March 2016, 2.23% in Apple, 1.72% in CBOE Volatility Index Future expiring in February 2016 and 1.72% in Microsoft. As of Jan. 31, 2016, the fund has a 12-month yield of 1.7%. It has a high turnover ratio of 478% as of Oct. 31, 2015, but it charges a low annual net expense ratio of 0.4%, compared to the 0.85% average of long/short equity funds. As of Feb. 12, 2016, the fund has done a good job at hedging against downside risk. The ETF is only down 3.53% YTD and outperformed the S&P 500 Index by nearly 5%. Over the past three months, the fund is only down 3.21% and outperformed the S&P 500 Index by over 5%. Janus Volatility Tail Risk Hedged Large Cap ETF The Janus Volatility Tail Risk Hedged Large Cap ETF (NYSEARCA: TRSK) has only been trading for about two years. This ETF seeks to provide investment results corresponding to the performance of the VelocityShares Tail Risk Hedged Large Cap Index. It hedges against large down moves in the equity markets by investing at least 80% of its total net assets in ETFs comprising the underlying index. Additionally, it may inve

SMALL CAP ETFs - ANALYSIS & HOW TO INVEST IN SMALL CAPS

What do I do? Full-time independent stock market analyst and researcher: https://sven-carlin-research-platform.teachable.com/p/stock-market-research-platform Check the comparative stock list table on my Stock market research platform under curriculum preview! I am also a book author: Modern Value Investing book: https://amzn.to/2lvfH3t More about me and some written reports at the Sven Carlin blog: https://svencarlin.com Stock market for modern value investors Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/modernvalueinvesting/ We know that stocks are generally overvalued and that small caps usually outperform other stock market segments albeit with more volatility. Now, there has been a lot of talk how even small caps are overvalued and a part of the stock market to definitely avoid even if it is tempting to search for opportunities where Wall Street is renowned for missing them. A Wall Street article was recently titled “How much are small caps overvalued?”. Let’s dig into the U.S. small cap environment to see what is going on. I’ll start by taking a look at the iShares Core S&P Small cap ETF (IJR) that tracks the S&P 600 small cap index. Small Cap performance As said, small caps usually outperform and their performance over the last 18 years has been nothing short of stellar. $10k invested in the ETF in 2000 would be now north of $50k not including any dividends while the S&P 500 is up ‘only’ 83%. A 500% performance leads many to believe the small cap environment is hugely overvalued.

Australian ETF Selection (Vanguard)
 
06:49
Today I’m talking about Australian ETF Selection with a focus on Vanguard ETFs. I’ve only recently started investing in ETFs – actually, I only started earlier this year – and I think that ultimately ETFs will be the main part of my portfolio. So what’s an ETF? An ETF is an Exchange Traded Fund, that is, it’s an investment fund that is traded on a securities exchange market like the Australian ASX. They’re typically a diversified portfolio of securities that track a particular asset or index (although, there are actively managed ETFs as well that try to outperform the given market or index). So for example, VTS – Vanguard U.S. Total Market Shares Index ETF seeks to track the performance of the CRSP US Total Market Index, providing investors with exposure to a broadly diversified collection of securities that, in the aggregate, approximates the full index in terms of key characteristics. As we can see here, VTS is made up of 3638 holdings where the top 10 represent 17.2% of the total ETF. Companies like Apple, Microsoft, Alphabet, Amazon, and Facebook. So in this video, I’m going to specifically talk about which ETFs I chose and the reasons behind those decisions. First of all, I decided to buy only Vanguard ETFs. Vanguard is one of the big players and typically has low fees and a solid performance history for their index funds. I believe they were the first ones to come up with the whole idea of indexing. You can take a look for yourself at the full list of Vanguard ETFs. They include ETFs for fixed interest, property, Australian shares, international shares, and their own diversified ETFs which are made up of various proportions of the previous four categories. MY FINAL ETF PORTFOLIO 25% VAS, 25% VGS and VGAD, and 25% VAE. That covers Australia, North America, Europe and Asia. I’m planning to stick with this allocation for at least the next few years. With ETFs, you really have to. Even though they’re tradeable on the stock exchange, you’ve got to treat them like a long term investment. So if their value goes down in the short term, don’t sell them – you’d only be locking in a loss.

💜 The Best Index Funds To Invest In 2019 💜
 
10:25
💜 Monk's Market Moves: http://bit.ly/MonkMM - Be The First To See All My Stock Trades! 💜 These are the best index funds to invest in the stock market in 2019. These top index fund ETFs are very good for the passive investor. I'll go over why these ETFs are good to invest in, expected returns in the stock market, and the best method to buy these index funds. The most popular and well known index fund is the S&P 500, or the Standard and Poor's 500. This index fund contains 500 American companies such as Apple, Amazon, Netflix, Facebook, and Google. This index fund has an average return of 10% a year in the past 100 years. This means you could become a millionaire if you invested just 300 dollars in this index. This is a very safe stock in the stock market because there are 500 companies in one fund. The stock market can crash, causing a dip of 20 to 60%, but over the long term, it'll likely go back up. You can buy the S&P 500 using the ticker symbol VOO in the stock market. The Nasdaq 100 is a great index fund in the market. It contains 100 technology related companies. This index fund is more volatile since 100 companies is less safe than 500. The Nasdaq 100 is for people who prefer to be invested in technology, while the S&P 500 is for people who want to diversify more. The Nasdaq 100 had higher returns than the S&P 500 over the past 10 years. These are both great index funds to invest in the stock market. Perfect stocks for the passive investor who still want to reach a million dollars.

Think the Market is Headed Lower? Try these 3 Bearish ETFs
 
03:30
The bears have essentially been hibernating since February and not even Brexit could really bring them back. Sylvia Jablonski, managing director at Direxion Investments, said investors believing it is time for them to emerge from their slumber and take the market lower should consider using inverse ETFs. "Investors have numerous things to be concerned about and plenty of factors cause uncertainty in the markets today," said Jablonski. "Inverse ETFs are accessible, liquid, cost efficient vehicles and are a great option particularly for investors and advisors that do not trade options, or do not want the hassle of negotiating borrow, recalls or rerates in the stock loan market." One of the simplest and most cost efficient ways to hedge S&P 500 exposure is via the use of Direxion Daily S&P 500 Bear , according to Jablonski. With a management fee of 45 basis points, it is a cost efficient tool to short the S&P 500. "With the S&P 500 is back at all-time highs, volatility near all-time lows, the dollar is steady and the US is the best market for return at the moment," said Jablonski. "What we are seeing is essentially an 8-year bull market. The question is, can that last forever?" Jablonski's second, more tactical idea for making money when stocks turn down is the Direxion Daily Developed Markets Bear 3X ETF . This ETF seeks daily investment results, before fees and expenses, of 300% of the inverse (or opposite) of the performance of the MSCI EAFE Index. Drilling down even deeper, Jablonski said investors seeking to profit from the continued weakness and uncertainty in the energy market should consider owning the Direxion Daily Energy Bear 1X ETF . "All the uncertainties that drove oil back up are coming off now," said Jablonski. "U.S. stockpiles are increasing and supplies at all-time highs. If investors believe that the energy sector will suffer in coming months, ERYY would be a good way to either hedge commodity exposure to some degree, or to simply participate in downside index performance."

Should You Currency Hedge Your Portfolio? | Common Sense Investment with Ben Felix

This video is in response to a question from abe on LinkedIN. Abe wanted to know if he should hedge the foreign currency exposure of his equities when the Canadian dollar is weak. There is no question that investing globally is beneficial. Diversification is the best way to increase your expected returns while decreasing your expected volatility. Diversification is, after all, known as the only free lunch in investing. When you decide to own assets all over the world, you are not just getting exposure to foreign companies, but also to foreign currencies. I’m Ben Felix, Associate Portfolio Manager at PWL Capital.

If Everyone Bought Index Funds...
 
04:55
If the majority of the market bought only index funds then it will essentially inflate the stocks that are included in the index. We already see this happening with stocks that are higher valued when they are included in the index as well as higher volatility during down turns. As the market moves towards more and more passive fund style, we will see this effect emphasized. This realization should make you think twice about the future of the market as a whole as 30% of all market values is passively traded right now as opposed to the estimated 50% in 2024.

When to Buy Etfs OVER Stocks (6 Times When Investing In Etfs Is Better Than Picking Stocks)
 
09:45
When To Purchase Etfs vs Stocks. When to Buy ETFS vs Stocks (6 Times When Investing In Etfs Is Better Than Picking Stocks) By the end of this video you will have much better idea of when invest in etfs (Exchange traded funds) versus selecting individual stocks. Let’s begin 1. When the sector has a narrow dispersion of returns. Sectors that have a narrow dispersion of returns from the mean do not offer stock pickers an advantage when trying to generate market-beating returns. For example lets assume there are 100 companies in the utility sector and most of them provide an annual rate of return of 4%, because the performance of all companies in these sectors tends to be similar. This is usually true for consumer staple investments as well. Its kind of like trying to choose which McDonalds to go to. No matter which one you choose the hamburger is basically going to taste the same. Since the dispersion of returns from these kind of investments tends to be narrow or similar; picking individual stock does not offer sufficiently higher return for the risk so purchasing a utility etf or index fund might make the most sense in this example. . 2. When you want to invest in a particular market sector or industry, but you have limited knowledge of that sector or industry For example, if you believe that now is a good time to invest in the mining sector, you may want to gain specific industry exposure. However, you are concerned that some stocks might encounter political problems harming their production. In this case, it is prudent to buy into the sector rather than a specific stock, since it reduces your risk. You can still benefit from growth in the overall sector, especially if it outperforms the overall market. 3. When the performance drivers of a company are difficult to understand. These companies may possess complicated technology or processes that cause them to underperform or do well. Perhaps performance depends on the successful development and sale of a new unproven technology. You find it difficult to understand the company or industry. Chipper told me a pharmaceutical company was going to do well, but I don’t understand how they operate, and there are so many of them to choose from. Which one do I pick? Unlike in the first example where the dispersion of investment returns were narrow, the desperation of returns in this case are wide so may even more challenging to pick the winning stocks in the industry. The biotechnology industry is a good example, as many of these companies depend on the successful development and sale of a new drug. If the development of the new drug does not meet expectations in the series of trials, or the FDA does not approve the drug application, the company faces a bleak future. On the other hand, if the FDA approves the drug, investors in the company can be highly rewarded. 4. When you want instant diversification ETFs provide instant diversification relative to individual stocks. It would be challenging to have a properly diversified portfolio with 10 individual stocks, but relatively simple with the same number of ETFs. (To learn more, see 10 Ways ETFs Can Grow Your Portfolio.) 5. Invest In Hard-to-access Markets Owning gold is a pain for most individual investors; owning SPDR Gold Shares (NYSE:GLD) (which owns gold bullion) is simple. Not only does this ETF bypass the bid-ask spreads of retail gold and the expense of rolling over futures contracts, but it has no storage or security requirements. Likewise, investors can access commodities like copper, precious metals, timberland and so on through the convenient forms of ETFs. (For more, check out Commodities: The Portfolio Hedge.) 6. Less time consuming way to invest The iShares US Medical Devices ETF (NYSE:IHI) contains 40 different stocks. It would take weeks for an individual investor to do proper due diligence on each of those names, and that is one of the advantages of ETF investing. Why should I spend all my time trying to sit here and pick individual stocks? I need to get my sorceress in Diablo 2 to level 99! Because the impact and importance of any one stock is relatively small, investors can spend their time thinking about which sectors and markets are poised to perform and make investment choices without being bogged down by an overwhelming amount of initial and ongoing due diligence.

Why I AVOID Index Funds & ETFs (Dividend Investing With Individual Stocks)
 
10:48
I personally avoid index funds and ETFs (exchange traded funds). As a dividend growth investor with the goal of driving passive income (via dividend checks), these investment vehicles do not meet my needs. Today's video compares and contrasts individual dividend stocks with index funds (and ETFs). I discuss the pros and cons of each. In particular, I cover the following: * What are your investment goals? Mine involve massive amounts of cash flow that cover my living expenses so I can visit beautiful places like Hawaii more often. * Do you want to average? That's what will happen with an index fund (by definition). I don't want to be average and that's why I personally invest in individual stocks. * Individual stocks offer control, stability, the opportunity for superior results, more risk (although mitigated somewhat via diversification), lower fees, and a bit more work. * Exchange traded funds and index funds offer less control, the ability to track an index, less risk, higher fees, and less work. * Learn where index funds and ETFs may make sense. Especially retirement accounts that only offer actively managed mutual funds as the alternative. And, charities where there is a fiduciary responsibility. * Learn why I don't like index funds. I just can't see them working for anyone who wants to make a living off of dividends. * Also, I cover three key points: (1) Individual stocks allow one to optimize for dividends. (2) Individual stocks allow one to buy value (buy what's "on sale"). (3) Index funds include lower quality stocks, and lift such stocks to unfair valuations.

The Next Stock Market Crash? | Passive Investing & Index ETFs Explained
 
05:52
Is passive investing safe? Will index ETFs save you in the next market crash? Or will both of these things cause the next crash? That’s what we’ll be talking about in this video. ***This video is sponsored by Real Vision*** One investment style has dominated the financial landscape for the bull market of the 2010’s. Like it or not passive investing, in the form of buy and hold index funds , (mostly ETFs) has ballooned in terms of attracting capital. But does all this passive “dumb money” add extra risk? Has the zombie apocalypse already begun in the form of blind passive investing! This is a crucial topic philosophically to many of us because frankly if you’re here you’re more likely to be active and you probably on some level reject the Efficient market Hypothesis. But cheap money as we looked at in our bubble series has been a nice environment for buying… well anything at any time. It’s made bull market geniuses of many, and humiliated some big named Hedge Fund managers like Bill Ackman who runs Pershing Square. Bill Ackman see's a risk in such a concentration of stock ownership by passive investors in terms of how stock ownership has been a means of checks and balances on corporate America. As an activist the last thing he wants is equity owners that have no interest in holding corporate boards accountable. A 2016 study by S&P Dow Jones Indices showed that about 90 percent of active stock managers failed to beat their index targets over the previous one-year, five-year and 10-year periods; fees explain a significant part of that underperformance. In their defense, active managers say that the period since the financial crisis of 2008 has been an abnormal one, with many stocks moving in lockstep, rather than trading on their individual earning prospects.

Inverse ETFs: Making Money When Markets Crash!
 
18:07
An Inverse ETF can be a wonderful vehicle to make money in a bearish (down) market. It is is a type of exchange traded fund constructed using various derivatives allowing investors to profit from the decline of the underlying benchmark or security. The greatest advantage offered by an Inverse ETF is that the investor is not required to hold a margin account and the consequent unlimited risk of short selling. Inverse ETFs seek to perform opposite their benchmark ETF. They are particularly popular instruments in a bearish market, but a few potential downsides exist. Study our training for an in-depth look into Inverse ETFs, their benefits and the precautions you should take when using them to make money in a bearish market.

Hedged Euro ETFs Growing But Not All Are Alike Says S&P Capital IQ
 
02:36
Interest in hedged Euro exchange traded funds has surged as the European currency has declined, but investors need to know the fund's holdings, said Todd Rosenbluth, Director of ETF Research at S&P Capital IQ. Rosenbluth added that the WisdomTree Europe Hedged Equity ETF (HEDJ), for example, has significant holdings in consumer staples stocks like Anheuser-Busch InBev which S&P Capital's analyst says are fully valued. Rosenbluth said he is more favorable to the iShares Currency Hedged MSCI EMU (HEZU) because it follows an index which holds more financials which S&P Capital IQ views more favorably.

BulletShares Target-Date Bond ETFs to Hedge Rising Rate Risk
 
03:17
Fixed-income investors are scrambling to adapt to a changing interest rate environment, but one may still generate yields and diminish rate risk through target-date bond ETFs. For instance, Guggenheim Investments has a suite of “BulletShares” defined-maturity bond ETFs, including a range of corporate bond options for years up to the Guggenheim BulletShares 2027 Corporate Bond ETF (NYSEArca: BSCR) and a group of high-yield options for years up to the Guggenheim BulletShares 2025 High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (NYSEArca: BSJP). "The objective of the BulletShares ETFs is to deliver the effective maturity of bonds that are maturing in the year. So once you get to the end of the year, we send them the asset value back to share holders," William Belden, Managing Director and Head of ETF Business Development for Guggenheim Investments, said at the Inside ETFs 2018 conference.

Most of them apply to index ETFs as well, especially ETFs that can be purchased (as many can) commission-free. You get wide diversification in a single package. Contrary to much popular opinion, investors benefit from owning more stocks, not fewer. By including all the stocks in an asset class such as U.S. small-cap value, index funds give that advantage to their shareholders. Studies show that owning more stocks will probably increase your return, and it will certainly reduce your level of risk. Index funds have low operating expenses. An index fund has no need to pay a staff of analysts to travel the world looking for exceptional “deals” or to hover over computer screens trying to figure out the economy. Index funds sometimes charge only one-tenth as much as actively managed funds in the same asset class. Those savings go to shareholders. Index Fund Advantages For example, index funds could be used to track the performance of: The entire U.S. stock market, Certain sectors of the U.S. stock market (the pharmaceutical industry, for instance), Various international stock markets, The bond market of a given country, or Just about anything else you can think of.

Three ProShares ETFs to Short the S&P 500 (SH, SDS)
 
07:10
https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do Investors who are feeling bearish about the Standard and Poor's 500 (S&P 500) Index may consider buying into a bearish exchange-traded fund (ETF) that rises in price when the S&P 500 falls in price. These ETFs allow investors to profit in falling markets and provide a hedge to a bullish portfolio. While there is a universe of bearish ETFs, investors must carefully consider many factors in determining the right inverse and levered bearish ETF. A leveraged bearish ETF is supposed to duplicate the percentage down in the S&P 500. For example, a 2% drop in the S&P 500 should reflect a 4% drop in the bearish negative 2X ETF. There are two main considerations at the top of the list. The daily average volume and holding time of the ETF address the concerns of liquidity and decay. Compounding Effect on Holding Time Unlike long-only ETFs, inverse and leveraged ETFs are created to duplicate the inverse one-day movement of the S&P 500 Index. They are also reset daily. This results in a compounding effect that can be beneficial if the S&P 500 makes consecutive day-to-day losses but can cause decay if volatility causes inconsistent back-to-back, up-and-down days. Therefore, it is important for an investor to determine how long he plans on holding the inverse ETF and to focus on a short-term trade. In general, the effects of compounding can take a negative toll if held for longer than a week in a choppy market. If the market consistently sells off, then the compounding effect can improve the performance. Daily Volume and Spreads The daily average volume of an ETF gives an idea of the liquidity factor. If the volume is under 1 million shares, it may suffer from wider bid-and-ask spreads, which can impact the performance negatively, especially when commissions are also factored into the cost. As a rule of thumb, it is best to consider ETFs that regularly maintain only a penny spread between the bid and ask prices. During periods of volatility, the spread may widen temporarily but should resume the penny spread shortly thereafter. The following are some of the ETFs to short the S&P 500. ProShares Short S&P 500 ETF The ProShares Short S&P 500 ETF (NYSEARCA: SH) was formed on June 19, 2006. This inverse ETF was developed to inversely mirror the one day performance of the S&P 500 by a factor of negative 1X. Therefore, if the S&P 500 is up 2%, SH should be down -2% minus the expense ratio. The expense ratio is 0.89%. The average daily volume of SH was around 3.7 million shares as of October 28, 2016 according to ProShares. This ensures solid liquidity and tight penny spreads. As mentioned earlier, the compounding effect can produce significant decay the longer the ETF position is held. This is evidenced by the one-year performance for SH returning -7.03% compared to the S&P 500 performance of 3.99% according to the company's fact sheet dated June 30, 2016. Without the decay, SH should theoretically only be -3.99

HOW TO PROPERLY INVEST IN INDEX FUNDS - DOLLAR COST AVERAGING

What do I do? Full-time independent stock market analyst and researcher: https://sven-carlin-research-platform.teachable.com/p/stock-market-research-platform Check the comparative stock list table on my Stock market research platform under curriculum preview! I am also a book author: Modern Value Investing book: https://amzn.to/2lvfH3t More about me and some written reports at the Sven Carlin blog: https://svencarlin.com Stock market for modern value investors Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/modernvalueinvesting/ The predominant investment strategy is to invest in index funds which means that you own an index like the S&P 500, which is a basket of the 500 biggest businesses traded in the U.S. Owning part of the 500 best businesses in the U.S. is not a bad thing but there are a few things you should know before allocating your hard-earned money to index funds. 1) Investing in index funds is extremely risky You probably read that many, even Warren Buffett says that investing in index funds is the best way to invest. However, there are many catches that go along that statement. The first thing many forget to talk about is the risk of investing in index funds. The S&P 500 has dropped 49% in 2001 and 57% in 2009. Such huge drops are extremely indicative of what can happen. And, it will certainly happen again sometimes in the future. In both cases the S&P 500 recovered but there is absolutely no guarantee that it will do so after the next drop. For example, after the 1920s bull market, it took the S&P 500 25 years to return to the previous level. There are also many periods of more than 10 years where stock market returns haven’t really been positive. From 2000 to 2013, from 1968 to 1982, just to give a few examples. If we adjust the returns for inflation, the periods where the actual return is zero are even longer; 2000 to 2016, 1966 to 1994 and what is also staggering is that from 1927 to 1982, inflation adjusted stock market returns have been negative. There is only one way to properly invest in index funds and it is a good strategy if you can stick to it for your whole life. Only if you dollar cost average your investments into index funds, you will do fine over the very long term. Dollar cost averaging means that you invest a fixed amount every month no matter what is going on in the market. This way you invest when things go well but also when things don’t go that well, which is the key. If you look back to the above chart, those who invested in 1931, 1940, 1982, 2009 have reaped the best investing returns. As it is impossible to time the market, dollar cost averaging is the only way to properly invest in index funds. However, few have the discipline to do so over the long term. A dollar cost averaging strategy works only if you keep investing through thin. This means that it is essential to invest when there is blood in the streets. Blood in the streets means that most others are selling in panic of what might happen next and nobody wants any kind of relation with stocks. A similar situation happened in 2001 and 2009. Those who have been constantly investing in stocks during the last 10 or 20 years, month after month, did well. However, if you stop investing during a recession because you prefer to safe a bit of cash in case you get fired, then index investing should be completely avoided because extremely risky and will lead to bad returns. As simple as a dollar cost averaging strategy might solve the issue. Where did the 5.4% yearly difference go? Well, it was eaten up by fees and by the fact that most invest in stocks at the wrong time and usually sell at the wrong time too. Most investors buy high and sell low. Therefore, it is extremely important to understand that investing in index funds works only if you stick to such an investment strategy for 40 years and add money constantly, month per month and reinvest the dividends without exception. The sad part is that, very few manage to apply such a strategy through life and that is something you should really see whether you can do. If you can’t invest when the stock market is down, or even worse, have to pull your funds out of the stock market when there is a crash, index investing certainly isn’t for you. 2) Dividends are extremely low As shown in figure 3, inflation adjusted stock market returns aren’t that stellar. Over the last 90 years those have been just shy of 2% per year. The biggest benefit from investing in the stock market in the last 90 years has come from dividends. The problem is that those dividends are at historical lows now.
Why the S&P 500 Is The Best Benchmark For U.S. Equities

The S&P 500 is the most widely-benchmarked index of U.S. equities. This video explains why. You can download a spreadsheet of all of stocks in the S&P 500 here: https://www.suredividend.com/sp-500-stocks/ ---------------------- Having a benchmark for your investment portfolio allows you to periodically measure its performance and ensure that you’re on pace to meet your financial goals. When it comes to large-cap U.S. equities, there are really two indices that investors can use to benchmark their portfolios: the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500. While the differences are not clear in their names alone, the two indices have some important differences. In this video, I’m going to explain why the S&P 500 is the best benchmark for large cap U.S. equities. ---------------------- What is the S&P 500? The S&P 500 is most well-known for containing approximately the 500 largest companies in the United States when measured by market capitalization. The Index also has other criteria, including: • Universe: All constituents must be U.S. companies. • Eligibility Market Cap: Companies with a market capitalization of US$6.1 billion or greater. • Public Float: At least 50% of shares outstanding must be available for trading. • Financial Viability: Companies must have positive as-reported earnings over the most recent quarter, as well as over the most recent four quarters (summed together). • Adequate Liquidity and Reasonable Price: Consists of highly tradable common stocks, with active and deep markets. The index is market capitalization-weighted, which means that companies with larger market capitalizations will have proportionately higher weightings in the S&P 500. If you’re interested in learning more about the S&P 500, please see the link in the description of this video which has additional information on the S&P 500 as well as a free Excel download containing each of the index’s constituent companies and their financial characteristics. Moving on, I’ll now explain 3 reasons why the S&P 500 is superior to the Dow Jones Industrial Average as a benchmark for large capitalization U.S. equities. ---------------------- Reason #1: It Is Market Capitalization-Weighted, Not Price-Weighted One of the main differences between the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is the way that their weigh their constituent companies. As we discussed earlier in this video, the S&P 500 is market capitalization-weighted, which means that larger companies actually have a larger weight in the index. On the other hand, the Dow is price-weighted. This means that companies with higher stock prices have higher weights in the index. This creates some bizarre weightings within the index. For example, take a moment to pause this video and guess the three Dow components with the highest weightings. Ready? The three Dow components with the highest weightings are: 1. Boeing 2. UnitedHealth Group 3. Goldman Sachs For context, the three largest companies that trade on the U.S. stock markets are: 1. Apple 2. Amazon 3. Google This peculiarity means that companies that are chosen somewhat arbitrarily have an outsized impact on the Dow’s performance. Underperforming the Dow may be more indicative that you’ve been very underweight Boeing rather than that you’ve actually underperformed the broader stock market. ---------------------- Reason #2: The S&P 500 Is Far More Diversified At its name implies, the S&P 500 contains approximately 500 securities. While this number varies slightly (for example, it currently contains 505 companies), it stays very close to its target of 500 companies. For comparison, the Dow Jones Industrial Average contains just 30 companies. Moreover, the its weighting scheme relies on stock price. These two factors together mean that the largest Dow component often has a very large influence on the index’s performance. For example, Boeing has a 9.6% weighting in the Dow at the time this video was published. Apple has just a 3.9% weighting in the S&P 500, despite being a much larger company. ---------------------- Reason #3: The S&P 500 is the Most Widely-Benchmarked Index in the U.S. Before explaining my logic here, I feel that it is important to provide a minor disclaimer. Many times in investing, doing something simply because everyone else is is often a bad idea. Benchmarking your portfolio to the S&P 500 is a rare exception to this. The S&P 500 is the most widely-benchmarked index in the United States. Three of the top four ETFs are benchmarked to the S&P 500. The largest is SPY, which has $268 billion of assets under management. For context, the largest Dow Jones ETF – which has the ticker DIA - has $22 billion of assets under management. If you’re interested in capturing the market’s average performance, we believe that you are far better off investing in an S&P 500 index fund rather than a competitor that tracks the Dow.

What The Heck Is An ETF - Exchange Traded Funds
 
49:36
Exchange Traded Funds -ETFs are funds that track indexes like the NASDAQ-100 Index, S&P 500, Dow Jones, etc. When you buy shares of an ETF, you are buying shares of a portfolio that tracks the yield and return of its native index. The main difference between ETFs and other types of index funds is that ETFs don't try to outperform their corresponding index, but simply replicate its performance. They don't try to beat the market, they try to be the market.
