Interest in Airline Trading “Huge” in 2020

from CNBC December 14, 2020

Bob Pisani, CNBC correspondent, commented on the U.S. Global Jets ETF (JETS) on December 2, 2020. Noting that the airline sector performed strongly for the day, Pisani highlights the massive growth in the trading volume and assets under management of JETS so far in 2020.

Year-to-date through December 2, 2020, JETS was down 27.85%. The fund crossed above $1 billion in assets on June 2 – after starting 2020 with just above $33 million – and was nearing $3 billion in assets at the time of the CNBC clip.

Read an excerpt from the segment:

“And even though [JETS is] down, compared to where it was in February, it’s had quite a climb back. The amount of stock that has been created around this out of interest in airline trading has been huge in the last couple of months. Really one of the big winners in the ETF space this year.”
