NEW YORK, April 14, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The JETS Contrarian Opportunities Index Fund (NYSE:JCO) celebrated the one-year anniversary of its NYSE ARCA listing on April 8, 2011. The Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) is the first to follow a dynamic, contrarian investment strategy.
In its first year of trading, JCO outperformed the S&P500 Index by 10.88% with a total return of 22.08% vs. 11.20% respectively.
JCO also vastly outperformed a variety of popular actively managed mutual funds. According to ICI research, there is over $3 Trillion of investors' capital invested in actively managed mutual funds.
"The outperformance in JCO comes from the unique design of the index which we track. Unlike traditional, static indexes or large mutual funds that simply ride market fluctuations, the Dow Jones Contrarian Opportunities Index seeks to capture intermediate term opportunities by adjusting its components every six months," said Brint Frith, President of Javelin Investment Management, the sponsor of the ETF. "By tracking a dynamic index, our ETF provides the potential for solid returns without compromising the transparency and efficiency that today's investors demand."
Ted Theodore, Chairman and CIO of Avatar Associates, added, "We think JCO is based on an ideal way to find stocks that, while they have lagged over the past, are currently building an improved fundamental base. This ETF is a very good way to get a whole group of these kinds of stocks."
