Looking Back And Ahead With Disruptive Technologies

By Todd Shriber via Iris.xyz

For much of 2018, the technology sector continued leading U.S. equities higher, but in the fourth quarter, that trade unraveled in a big way. As of Dec. 30th, the tech-heavy Nasdaq-100 Index was saddled with a fourth-quarter loss of 17.68 percent.

While broader technology benchmarks encountered difficulty late in 2018, some unique approaches managed less poor annual performances. As of Dec. 31st, the Indxx Disruptive Technologies Index was poised to modestly outperform the Indxx 500 Index on an annual basis.

The Indxx Disruptive Technologies Index features equal-weight exposure to 10 new age technology themes, many of which are under-represented or not found at all in traditional technology indexes. Themes represented in the Indxx Disruptive Technologies Index include 3D printing, cloud computing, cybersecurity, fintech, healthcare innovation and Internet of Things (IoT).
