Investors were cautious going into the final trading session of this volatile week. In the previous two sessions, stocks erased Monday’s steep losses. The three benchmarks managed to start today’s session with slight weekly gains, but early market action was muted. So far this week the Dow is up 0.5%, the S&P has gained 0.4% and the Nasdaq is up about 0.1%. We’ll have to wait and see where today’s session will lead.
One area of the market that can offer hefty returns regardless of what is happening elsewhere 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 complex, 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.
