© Reuters. Single Stock ETFs Launched, Including a Bearish Tesla Bet

By Sam Boughedda

Single-Stock Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) were launched Thursday, giving investors a new way to bet on high-profile stocks.

However, regulators have cautioned investors to take care. AXS Investments has launched eight ETFs enabling investors to make inverse or leveraged bets on single companies that include Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA), Nike (NYSE:NKE), Pfizer (NYSE:PFE), and PayPal (NASDAQ:PYPL). The Tesla and Nvidia ETFs are inverse funds.

The products are already available in Europe but will be the first of their kind in the US.

AXS, which was recently named among the "Top 10 Investment Firms of 2022," said the funds are supposed to be used as short-term trading products and not for investors who don’t plan to actively manage their portfolios.

The funds will utilize derivative contracts to create the leveraged or inverse of the daily returns of the stocks.

"We are thrilled to be the first firm to bring single-stock leveraged and inverse ETFs to U.S. investors," said Greg Bassuk, CEO of AXS Investments. "With the launch of this highly innovative family of ETFs, AXS has once again opened new access for investors, namely to express their high-conviction views on some of the most actively traded single stocks, regardless of whether their sentiment is bullish or bearish."
