Q4 2021: An Airline ETF Worth Exploring

from Investopedia August 13, 2021

“For investors optimistic about the [airline] industry’s long-term recovery, an airline ETF provides a way to get broad-based exposure to that trend,” remarks Investopedia writer Nathan Reiff.

After a year of pandemic-related declines to business, the airline industry has begun to recover. In fact, airline stocks have outperformed the broader market over the past year so far. In its article published on August 10th, 2021, Investopedia recommended investing in an airline industry-centric ETF, highlighting the U.S. Global Jets ETF (JETS) as the “only single option when it comes to ETFs focused on the airline industry.”

As of August 6th, 2021, JETS has “outperformed the broader market over the past 12 months, with a total return of 39.0% compared to the S&P 500’s total return of 34.5%,” cites Investopedia.

JETS is the only pure-play airline ETF with roughly 75% of its portfolio apportioned to domestic airline companies, including aircraft manufacturers, airports, air travel websites, and transportation. The other portion of the JETS portfolio is invested in international companies from Canada, Japan, Turkey, and China, therefore adding necessary diversification to the overall portfolio.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting actions to control or slow the spread has had a significant detrimental effect on the global and domestic economies, financial markets, and industries, including airlines. U.S. Global Investors continues to monitor the impact of COVID-19, but it is too early to determine the full impact this virus may have on commercial aviation. Should this emerging macro-economic risk continue for an extended period, there could be an adverse material financial impact to the U.S. Global Jets ETF.
