Overview of AdvisorShares Ranger Equity Bear ETF offerings
Investment Objective: HDGE seeks capital appreciation through short selling of domestically traded equity securities . This means the ETF profits when the price of stocks it holds goes down.
Actively Managed: Unlike many ETFs that track a specific index, HDGE is actively managed by Ranger Alternative Management. The managers use a fundamental research process to identify companies with potentially low earnings quality or aggressive accounting practices.
Shorting Companies: Based on their research, the ETF short sells shares of these companies. Short selling involves borrowing shares of a stock, selling them in the hope the price will decline, and then repurchasing them later to return to the lender. If the share price does fall, the ETF profits from the difference between the selling and repurchase price.
Targeting Specific Companies: HDGE focuses on shorting large and mid-cap U.S. listed companies.
Bottom-Up Approach: The ETF employs a bottom-up approach, where each company's fundamentals are analyzed to determine shorting opportunities.
Potential Returns: HDGE aims to deliver positive returns by profiting from falling share prices of the companies it holds. However, it's important to remember that short-selling strategies can be risky, especially during extended bull markets.
