Ultra High Yield
ProShares Ultra High Yield seeks daily investment results, before fees and expenses, that correspond to two times (2x) the daily performance of the Markit iBoxx $ Liquid High Yield Index.
This Ultra ProShares ETF seeks a return that is 2x the return of an index or other benchmark (target) for a single day . as measured from one NAV calculation to the next. Due to the compounding of daily returns, ProShares’ returns over periods other than one day will likely differ in amount and possibly direction from the target return for the same period. These effects may be more pronounced in funds with larger or inverse multiples and in funds with volatile benchmarks. Investors should monitor their holdings consistent with their strategies, as frequently as daily. For more on correlation, leverage and other risks, please read the prospectus .
The performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Shares are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the fund. Market price returns are based upon the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4:00 p.m. ET (when NAV is normally determined for most funds) and do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. For standardized returns and performance data current to the most recent month end, see Performance .
The daily percentage change in the closing level of the benchmark or index may not match the daily percentage change in the fund’s NAV due to: (a) The difference between the closing level of the index, usually calculated at 3:00 p.m. and the calculation of the fund’s NAV at the close of NYSE Arca, generally 4:00 p.m.; and (b) A limited trading market in the index’s component bonds on the calculation of the index.
