But could there be more gains ahead for this ETF? Let’s take a look at the fund and the near-term outlook to get a better idea of where it might be headed.

FRAK In Focus

The underlying MVIS Global Unconventional Oil & Gas Index tracks the overall performance of companies involved in the exploration, development, extraction, and/or production of unconventional oil and natural gas.The fund charges 54 bps in fees.

Why The Move?

Oil and gas prices have been super-sturdy lately.  Oil is hovering around a $80 level. The recent rally has been driven by supply disruptions and storage drawdowns as well as growing demand with the easing of pandemic restrictions. Meanwhile, natural gas prices spiked to a seven-year high buoyed by the growing concerns over tight winter supplies.

More Gains Ahead?

The fund has a positive weighted alpha of 161.89. So, there is a decent outlook ahead for those who want to ride this surging ETF a shade further.



Time to Invest in Legal Marijuana

If you’re looking for big gains, there couldn’t be a better time to get in on a young industry primed to skyrocket from $17.7 billion back in 2019 to an expected $73.6 billion by 2027.

After a clean sweep of 6 election referendums in 5 states, pot is now legal in 36 states plus D.C. Federal legalization is expected soon and that could be a still greater bonanza for investors. Even before the latest wave of legalization, Zacks Investment Research has recommended pot stocks that have shot up as high as +285.9%.
