As we approach the end of 2023, we believe global airline stocks continue to offer a compelling opportunity for investors, bolstered by a series of positive indicators. The recent earnings season has showcased the resilience and adaptability of the airline industry, with many companies exceeding expectations. Notably, renewed travel numbers have begun to reflect a strong rebound in consumer confidence and pent-up demand for air travel.
There are numerous ways to gain exposure to the airline industry: through major carriers, airline operators and manufactures, airports and even online travel booking companies.
In this webcast, Frank Holmes, CEO of U.S. Global Investors, will walk through macro forces impacting the global airline industry, while highlighting the fund strategy of the U.S. Global Jets ETF (NYSE: JETS).
Please consider carefully a fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. For this and other important information, obtain a statutory and summary prospectus for JETS here: https://www.usglobaletfs.com/jets-prospectus. Read it carefully before investing. Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Shares of any ETF are bought and sold at market price (not NAV), may trade at a discount or premium to NAV and are not individually redeemed from the funds. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. Because the funds concentrate their investments in specific industries, the funds may be subject to greater risks and fluctuations than a portfolio representing a broader range of industries. The funds are non-diversified, meaning they may concentrate more of their assets in a smaller number of issuers than diversified funds. The funds invest in foreign securities which involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater for investments in emerging markets. The funds may invest in the securities of smaller-capitalization companies, which may be more volatile than funds that invest in larger, more established companies. The performance of the funds may diverge from that of the index. Because the funds may employ a representative sampling strategy and may also invest in securities that are not included in the index, the funds may experience tracking error to a greater extent than funds that seek to replicate an index. The funds are not actively managed and may be affected by a general decline in market segments related to the index.
Airline Companies may be adversely affected by a downturn in economic conditions that can result in decreased demand for air travel and may also be significantly affected by changes in fuel prices, labor relations and insurance costs.
Foreign and emerging market investing involves special risks such as currency fluctuation and less public disclosure, as well as economic and political risk. By investing in a specific geographic region, such as China and/or Taiwan, a regional ETFs returns, and share price may be more volatile than those of a less concentrated portfolio.
