New Trade for July 13th, 2021

Action was muted this morning to start the second quarter earnings season.  Major financial firms start to release data today, beginning with Goldman Sachs (GS) who posted an earnings beat before the bell today.  This marks the second straight quarter of better than expected earnings for the banking firm.  GS shares traded slightly higher in early trading.  Investors will be watching for clues on inflation as June CPI and other key metrics will be discussed in the coming days.  

One area of the market that can offer hefty returns is biotech.  It’s not unheard of for a winning biotech stock to produce 10x or 20x returns in a very short period of time.  But biotech companies are difficult to evaluate due to the speculative nature of their technologies, and due to the breadth of knowledge, experience, and education required to understand them.  Although this is true for all industries, it is particularly true for biotech. 

Specifically, genomics is one niche within the biotech group that could offer unimaginable returns, but the technology is so new and so advanced, many investors shy away from companies that are making astounding advancements.  

One solution is to delegate individual stock picking to the professionals.  In today’s trade we’ll focus on an exchange-traded fund (ETF) that provides an opportunity for investors who are looking to gain access to companies at the forefront of genomics innovation. 

iShares Genomics Immunology and Healthcare ETF (IDNA)

IDNA holds a concentrated portfolio of global companies in the biopharmaceutical and healthcare equipment and services industries that could benefit from the long-term growth and innovation in genomics, immunology and bioengineering. The fund is passively managed and holdings are weighted by market-cap and are constrained such that no individual security exceeds 4% weight of the portfolio. The index rebalances semi-annually.

It’s worth noting that IDNA beat Cathie Woods’ ARK Genomic Revolution ETF (ARKG) in the first ten weeks of 2020, when global markets were rocked by the coronavirus outbreak and investors were eagerly hunting for potential profit in companies researching treatment and vaccines.
