CAPE Description
The return of the ETNs is linked to the performance of the Shiller Barclays CAPETM US Core Sector Index (the “Index”). The return on the ETNs is linked to the performance of the Index. The Index seeks to provide a notional long exposure to the top four relatively undervalued US equity sectors that also exhibit relatively strong price momentum. The Index incorporates the CAPE (Cyclically Adjusted Price Earnings) ratio to assess equity market valuations of nine sectors on a monthly basis and to identify the relatively undervalued sectors represented in the S&P 500®. The S&P 500® is intended to provide an indication of the pattern of stock price movement in the U.S. equities market. The Index then selects the top four undervalued sectors that possess relatively stronger price momentum over the past twelve months and allocates an equally weighted notional long position in the total return version of the S&P Select Sector Indices (each, a “Sector Index”) corresponding to the selected sectors. We refer herein to the Sector Indices represented in the Index at any given time collectively as the “Index Constituents”. The Index Constituents are calculated, maintained and published by Standard & Poor’s Financial Services LLC (“S&P” or the “sector index sponsor”).
