Single-stock ETFs are a complex type of exchange-traded fund (ETF) that typically seeks positive or negative multiples (often referred to as leveraged or inverse) of the daily performance of a single stock rather than of an index. Because these ETFs focus on a single stock, they do not provide diversification. Leveraged single-stock ETFs in particular amplify the effect of price movements of the underlying individual stocks. Because of this, investors holding these funds will experience even greater volatility and risk than investors who hold the underlying stock itself.
