SPDN: An Inexpensive Way To Profit When The S&P 500 Falls

Summary
SPDN is not the largest or oldest way to short the S&P 500, but it’s a solid choice.
This ETF uses a variety of financial instruments to target a return opposite that of the S&P 500 Index.
SPDN’s 0.49% Expense Ratio is nearly half that of the larger, longer-tenured -1x Inverse S&P 500 ETF.
Details aside, the potential continuation of the equity bear market makes single-inverse ETFs an investment segment investor should be familiar with.
We rate SPDN a Strong Buy because we believe the risks of a continued bear market greatly outweigh the possibility of a quick return to a bull market.

Summary
The S&P 500 is in a bear market, and we don’t see a quick-fix. Many investors assume the only way to navigate a potentially long-term bear market is to hide in cash, day-trade or “just hang in there” while the bear takes their retirement nest egg.

The Direxion Daily S&P 500® Bear 1X ETF (NYSEARCA:SPDN) is one of a class of single-inverse ETFs that allow investors to profit from down moves in the stock market.

SPDN is an unleveraged, liquid, low-cost way to either try to hedge an equity portfolio, profit from a decline in the S&P 500, or both. We rate it a Strong Buy, given our concern about the intermediate-term outlook for the global equity market.

Strategy
SPDN keeps it simple. If the S&P 500 goes up by X%, it should go down by X%. The opposite is also expected.

Proprietary ETF Grades
Offense/Defense: Defense

Segment: Inverse Equity

Sub-Segment: Inverse S&P 500

Correlation (vs. S&P 500): Very High (inverse)

Expected Volatility (vs. S&P 500): Similar (but opposite)

Holding Analysis
SPDN does not rely on shorting individual stocks in the S&P 500. Instead, the managers typically use a combination of futures, swaps and other derivative instruments to create a portfolio that consistently aims to deliver the opposite of what the S&P 500 does.

Strengths
SPDN is a fairly “no-frills” way to do what many investors probably wished they could do during the first 9 months of 2022 and in past bear markets: find something that goes up when the “market” goes down. After all, bonds are not the answer they used to be, commodities like gold have, shall we say, lost their luster. And moving to cash creates the issue of making two correct timing decisions, when to get in and when to get out. SPDN and its single-inverse ETF brethren offer a liquid tool to use in a variety of ways, depending on what a particular investor wants to achieve.

Weaknesses
The weakness of any inverse ETF is that it does the opposite of what the market does, when the market goes up. So, even in bear markets when the broader market trend is down, sharp bear market rallies (or any rallies for that matter) in the S&P 500 will cause SPDN to drop as much as the market goes up.

Opportunities
While inverse ETFs have a reputation in some circles as nothing more than day-trading vehicles, our own experience with them is, pardon the pun, exactly the opposite! We encourage investors to try to better-understand single inverse ETFs like SPDN. While traders tend to gravitate to leveraged inverse ETFs (which actually are day-trading tools), we believe that in an extended bear market, SPDN and its ilk could be a game-saver for many portfolios.

Threats
SPDN and most other single inverse ETFs are vulnerable to a sustained rise in the price of the index it aims to deliver the inverse of. But that threat of loss in a rising market means that when an investor considers SPDN, they should also have a game plan for how and when they will deploy this unique portfolio weapon.

Proprietary Technical Ratings
Short-Term Rating (next 3 months): Strong Buy

Long-Term Rating (next 12 months): Buy

Conclusions
ETF Quality Opinion
SPDN does what it aims to do, and has done so for over 6 years now. For a while, it was largely-ignored, given the existence of a similar ETF that has been around much longer. But the more tenured SPDN has become, the more attractive it looks as an alternative.

ETF Investment Opinion

SPDN is rated Strong Buy because the S&P 500 continues to look as vulnerable to further decline. And, while the market bottomed in mid-June, rallied, then waffled since that time, our proprietary macro market indicators all point to much greater risk of a major decline from this level than a fast return to bull market glory. Thus, SPDN is at best a way to exploit and attack the bear, and at worst a hedge on an otherwise equity-laden portfolio.

Animal Nutrition Market Trend, Outlook 2025

Animal nutrition focuses on dietary needs of animals, chiefly those in food production and agriculture, however also in aquariums, zoos, and wildlife management. Animal nutrition is important for the productivity and health of agricultural animals. Various organizations and programs such as the National Animal Nutrition Program (NANP) serves as a medium to identify high-priority animal nutrition concerns. These organizations offers a systemic and integrated approach to assemble, collect, share, synthesize and publicize science-based information and educational tools on animal nutrition that increases high-priority research among agricultural species. Several governments are implementing systems that redefine the roles of industry and government in delivering safe nutrition to animals. In 2004, the FAO/WHO Codex Alimentarius Commission approved a Code of Practice on Good Animal Feeding. The manual gives complete and updated information and practical guidelines to help producers and stakeholders know about the production and distribution chain to comply with the regulatory framework.Market DynamicsGrowing demand for safe and healthy animal food, restrictions on the use of antibiotics, increasing awareness among producers regarding animal health are major factors driving animal nutrition market growth. Global demand for food of animal origin, including eggs, fish, milk, and meat is also, increasing, in order to provide better nutrition to animals. According to Food and Agriculture Organization, global demand for animal derived-protein will double by 2050. Increasing consumption of animal products and livestock make a crucial contribution to the nutritional and economic wellbeing of millions of people across the globe. There has been an increasing pressure on the livestock sector to meet growing demand for high-value animal protein. Urbanization is a major driving factor supporting demand for livestock products due to improvements in infrastructure, including cold chains, which allow trade in fresh goods. According to Food and Agriculture Organization, in comparison to rural population, city population have a varied diet rich in animal fats and proteins, and characterized by higher consumption of poultry, meat, milk, and other dairy products.Animal feeds play a primary role in the global food industry, since feed is the most important component to ensure abundant, safe, and affordable animal proteins. Young and growing animals need nutrients to meet the requirements of specific growth stages. They require suitable nutrition for growth and development of organs, muscles, and bones. Nutrient needs of animals also change with age. For instance, older animals may have health problems related to aging, which require diverse nutritional needs such as mineral and vitamin supplements.Get PDF Research Brochure for more Professional and Technical Insights: https://www.coherentmarketinsights.com/insight/request-pdf/1630Amino acids segment is expected to hold major revenue share in global animal nutrition market, owing to its high protein efficiency content and substitute to feed protein sources. Eubiotics are gaining importance due to their significant application in improving feed digestibility, nutrient absorption, and better animal performance. Eubiotics are biologically active food additives, which contain living microorganisms and (or) their metabolites. Eubiotics are replacing antibiotics for improved health and performance of livestock. Various international players are focusing on production of different types of eubiotics, which can be used for diverse livestock. Increasing consumption of poultry products and growing preference for white meat over red meat is expected to fuel growth of the poultry segment. For instance, according to Global Agricultural Information Network in 2017, broiler production in India increased to 4.5 million tons due to increasing demand from the growing middle class. Rising awareness about the use of cost effective and nutrient rich compound feed will increase demand for poultry nutrition products in emerging countries.
