The AdvisorShares Q Dynamic Growth ETF (QPX) finished behind its benchmark, the S&P 500 Index for the third quarter.
QPX was heavily weighted in large-cap stocks and the technology sector throughout the period, as this exposure has a much higher risk/reward characteristics than other segments of the market (per its model).
Concerns about China’s Evegrande impact, Chinese technology sell-offs and the gridlock in Washington, D.C. over the debt ceiling were contributing factors.
There were no risk-off rebalancing triggered by the QIX index, which saw its value fluctuate between 12.93 and 19.69, well below the rebalance trigger of 37.50.
The lion’s share of the portfolio exposure remains in large-cap growth stocks and the technology sector.
