EQL - Alps Equal Sector Weight ETF

Alps Equal Sector Weight ETF logoThe Alps Equal Sector Weight ETF (EQL) is an exchange-traded fund that tracks the performance of the NYSE® Pickens Oil Response™ Index. This index is a rules-based index designed to measure the performance of companies that could benefit from the passage of the Pickens Plan, which is a plan designed to reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil. The index is comprised of 51 companies that are involved in industries such as natural gas, electric and hybrid vehicles, and railroads.

EQL seeks to provide investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance of the NYSE® Pickens Oil Response™ Index. The fund has an expense ratio of 0.45% and as of March 22, 2023, held a total net asset value of $7.45 million.

One of the unique features of EQL is that it utilizes an equal sector weighting methodology, meaning that it invests an equal amount of assets in each of the ten sectors that are represented in the underlying index. This approach aims to provide broad exposure to companies that could benefit from the Pickens Plan, while avoiding overconcentration in any particular sector.

Investors interested in EQL should keep in mind that the fund is focused on a specific theme, which may carry its own risks. Additionally, while the fund may provide exposure to companies that could benefit from the Pickens Plan, it is not a guarantee that the plan will be implemented or successful. As with all investments, it is important to carefully consider the risks and potential rewards before making an investment decision.
