One of the Top Non-Leveraged ETFs of 2019

from MarketWatch January 21, 2020

MarketWatch released a list of the top five non-leveraged ETFs of 2019 and U.S. Global Investors is proud to report that the U.S. Global GO GOLD and Precious Metal Miners ETF (GOAU) made that list. Market Watch screened for funds up at least 50 percent for the year, then excluded leveraged funds and came up with a total of 17 names. The list was then narrowed to the top five where GOAU came in fifth place.

Up an impressive 53.37 percent for the year, GOAU’s success “can be attributed to active management that focuses on gold mining production or companies with royalty models. Royalty companies have lower expenses, less volatility and more predictable revenue streams,” MarketWatch writes.
