OGIG Adds Tech Stocks with Over 80% Revenue Growth

September 29, 2021 GMT

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 29, 2021--

OGIG recently completed its semi-annual portfolio reconstitution, adding new positions in 12 companies with strong revenue growth, over 80% (weighted average), driven by “new tech.” The OGIG Index is a rules-based index that seeks to identify and add stocks as their growth metrics improve.

Kevin O’Leary, Chairman of O’Shares ETFs, had this to say on the difference between new and old tech, “Here’s why I like new tech. New tech companies generate innovation and strong revenue growth – creating value, while many old tech companies have slowing growth rates, as new tech companies eat their lunch. OGIG is my favorite strategy for the fast-changing tech sector. It can be used in portfolios to replace or complement other tech investments.”

Connor O’Brien had comments on Tech valuations and how OGIG is different: “Tech looks expensive to some people. Maybe. Tech has looked expensive for years, and Tech has performed well for years. Using price to sales valuation vs. Nasdaq 100 stocks, OGIG stocks appear to be at a 20% discount. One reason is continued strong revenue growth of OGIG stocks; the portfolio weighted average is 50% for OGIG, almost double the growth of Nasdaq 100 and Technology Select Sector index stocks, as of 9/17/2021. In OGIG, the top 5 stocks recently added have an average revenue growth rate of 115%. We see advisors using OGIG alongside “old tech” investments because OGIG is highly differentiated, with active share of 76% and 90% vs. the Nasdaq 100 and Technology Select sector indexes, respectively.”

Before you invest in O’Shares ETF Investments Funds, please refer to the prospectus for important information about the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. To obtain a prospectus containing this and other important information, please visit www.oshares.com to view or download a prospectus online. Read the prospectus carefully before you invest. There are risks involved with investing including the possible loss of principal.

Concentration in a particular industry or sector will subject the Funds to loss due to adverse occurrences that may affect that industry or sector. The Funds may use derivatives which may involve risks different from, or greater than, those associated with more traditional investments. A Fund’s emphasis on dividend-paying stocks involves the risk that such stocks may fall out of favor with investors and underperform the market. Also, a company may reduce or eliminate its dividend after the Fund’s purchase of such a company’s securities. Returns on investments in foreign securities could be more volatile than, or trail the returns on, investments in U.S. securities. Exposures to foreign securities entail special risks, including political, diplomatic, economic, foreign market and trading risks. In addition, a Fund’s investments in securities denominated in other currencies could decline due to changes in local currency relative to the value of the U.S. dollar, which may affect the Fund’s returns. See the prospectus for specific risks regarding the Funds.

Companies involved with Internet technology and e-commerce are exposed to risks associated with rapid advances in technology, obsolescence of current products and services, the finite life of patents and the constant threat of global competition and substitutes.

Past performance does not guarantee future results. Shares are bought and sold at market price (not NAV), are not individually redeemable, and owners of Shares may acquire those Shares from the Funds and tender those shares for redemption to the Funds in Creation Unit aggregations only, consisting of 50,000 Shares. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. The market price of Shares can be at, below, or above NAV. Market Price returns are based upon the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4:00 PM Eastern time (when NAV is normally determined), and do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded Shares at other times.

Performance data quoted represents past performance and is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than original cost.
