This Tech ETF is a Rebound Candidate

That is bad news for companies and organizations that are victimized by nefarious hacks, but as its Wednesday performance shows, it is good news for HACK.

HACK’s index “tracks the performance of companies actively engaged in providing services for cyber security and for which cyber security business activities are a key driver of their business model. These cyber security services are designed to protect computer hardware, software, networks and data from unauthorized access, vulnerabilities, attacks and other security breaches,” according to PureFunds.

There are newly minted leveraged equivalents of HACK; the Direxion Daily Cyber Security Bull 2X Shares (NYSEArca: HAKK) and the Direxion Daily Cyber Security Bear 2X Shares (NYSEArca: HAKD).

While HACK may be seen as a niche ETF or a “satellite holding,” the long-term merit of the cyber security investment theme is irrefutable. For example, cyber crime will cost $2 trillion by 2019, according to Juniper Research, indicating that demand for the products and services offered by HACK’s 31 holdings will surge.
