Best Inverse/Leveraged ETFs of Last Week

·3 min read

Wall Street was moderate last week. The S&P 500 (up 0.4%), the Dow Jones (down 0.13%), the Nasdaq (up 2.2%) and the Russell 2000 (up 1.94%) delivered a mixed performance last week. Some segments staged a rebound like technology, clean energy and small-caps.

As the Fed indicated to go slow on future rate hikes, surge in treasury yields got moderated. This has benefitted growth stocks like technology. The small-cap index is now at its cheapest versus the large- cap Russell 1000 since March 2020, according to Jefferies data, giving every reason for bargain-hunting, as quoted on Reuters. Things are taking a turn for the better for the pint-sized stocks as these have less domestic exposure and outperform in a rising greenback environment (read: Small-Cap ETFs: Value Play or Value Trap?).

Clean energy stocks surged lately after Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senator Joe Manchin struck an agreement on the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022. This bill aims to boost domestic energy production and reduce carbon emissions (read: Clean Energy Stocks & ETFs Surge on Climate Spending Deal).

Oil prices have dropped sharply from their recent peaks. Against this backdrop, below we highlight the winning invest/leveraged ETFs of last week.
