BALT in Focus

Innovator Defined Wealth Shield ETF seeks to track the return of the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust SPY, to a cap, and provide a measure of downside protection by seeking to buffer investors against losses. The ETF targets a 20% buffer every 3-month outcome period. Innovator Defined Wealth Shield ETF charges 69 bps in annual fees (see: all the Defined Outcome ETFs here).

Why the Move?

The defined outcome ETF has been an area to watch lately, given that 2022 is proving to be a brutal year for the U.S. stock market. Innovator Defined Outcome ETFs are the first ETFs that allow investors to take advantage of market growth while maintaining defined levels of buffers against loss.

More Gains Ahead?

Currently, BALT might remain strong given a weighted alpha of 3.24 and higher 20-day volatility of 1.89%. There is definitely still some promise for investors, who want to ride on this surging ETF.
