FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MSOX joins MSOS, YOLO and number of other AdvisorShares ETFs with Listed Options
Bethesda, MD. — February 7, 2023 — AdvisorShares, a leading sponsor of actively managed exchange-traded funds (ETFs), today announced that AdvisorShares MSOS 2x Daily ETF (Ticker: MSOX) options are now listed for trading.
MSOX seeks daily investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond to two times (2x) the daily total return of the AdvisorShares Pure US Cannabis ETF (Ticker: MSOS). MSOX does not seek to achieve its stated investment objective over a period of time greater than a single day. MSOX is designed for sophisticated investors looking to gain magnified exposure to the U.S. cannabis sector.
The magnified exposure to cannabis which MSOX provides is designed for short-term trading. Its increased buying power offers 2x the cannabis exposure in a single trade, allowing MSOX shareholders to overweight cannabis holdings for less cash. AdvisorShares managing director Dan Ahrens serves as portfolio manager of both MSOX and MSOS. Ahrens is one of the most accomplished and experienced portfolio managers who specializes in cannabis and vice-related investment strategies.
When it launched in September 2020, MSOS became the first U.S.-listed active ETF to deliver exposure dedicated solely to American cannabis companies including multi-state operators (MSOs), and then quickly ascended to become the largest publicly traded cannabis fund in the world. MSOs are U.S. companies directly involved in the legal production and distribution of cannabis in states where approved.
