SUMMARY


We rate ProShares Ultra Financials at B. This overall rating indicates it is among the top 10% of all closed end funds in its peer group. Positive factors that influence this rating include a well above average total return, low price volatility and low expense structure. The fund invests approximately 99% of its assets in stocks and may be considered for investors seeking a Sector - Financial Services strategy.


POSITIVES AND RISKS


Total return ranks very high in comparison with peers over the last three years. The ProShares Ultra Financials has returned an annual rate of -20.55% since inception. More recently, the fund has generated a total return of 24.07% in the last five years, 25.69% in the last three years, and 26.68% in the last year. How does that compare to other equity funds? In the last five years, it has outperformed 94% of them. It has also outpaced 97% of its competitors on a three year basis and 92% of them over the last year for the period ending 5/31/2014. On a year to date basis, UYG has returned 3.16%.

Downside risk has been above average. UYG has a draw down risk of -45.10%, which is the largest price decline experienced over the last three years. This fund has a three year standard deviation of 35.8%. This fund has experienced excessive volatility in its monthly performance over the last 36 months. As of 5/31/2014, the fund was trading at a price of $121.30, which is 0.4% below its 52-week high of $121.73 and 6.5% above its 52-week low of $113.87.

High expense ratio hinders performance. On total assets of $847.80 million, UYG maintains a high expense ratio compared to its Sector - Financial Services peers of 0.95% to cover all operating costs. Brokerage costs for the fund to buy and sell shares are not included in the expense ratio. As UYG is an exchange traded fund, it has no front end or back end load.

The ProShares Ultra Financials is managed by Charles Lowery at ProShare Advisors LLC. This fund is one of 144 ProShare Advisors LLC exchange-traded funds launched since 6/19/2006 that we track.
