Direxion Launches First Amazon, Google and Microsoft Single Stock Leveraged and Inverse ETFs
NEW YORK, September 7, 2022 — Following upon the recent success of its first four single stock leveraged and inverse ETFs - TSLL, TSLS, AAPU, and AAPD - Direxion, a leading provider of tradeable and thematic ETFs, today announced the launch of an additional six single stock leveraged and inverse ETFs, listing on the NASDAQ, which allow active traders to obtain magnified, or inverse, exposure to the daily performance of the common stocks of Amazon, Google or Microsoft.
“Amazon, Google and Microsoft are three of the world’s largest stocks, are heavily traded, and are widely recognized,” said Direxion Managing Director and Head of Product, David Mazza. “The ability to express short-term views on single stocks using a Bull or Bear fund is an excellent way for traders to respond tactically to potential company events and market moves.”The new ETFs are as follows:
As ground-breaking products built for active traders, Direxion’s pairs of single stock leveraged and inverse ETFs are meant to be used for short-term trading purposes. Leveraged and inverse single stock ETFs should not be viewed as buy and hold investments, but rather trading tools for traders with a high risk tolerance. In addition, unlike traditional ETFs, or even other levered and/or inverse ETFs, these ETFs track the price of a single stock rather than an index, eliminating the benefits of diversification. Additionally, the ETFs do not invest directly in AMZN, GOOGL or MSFT.
All Direxion leveraged and inverse ETFs are intended only for investors with an in-depth understanding of the risks associated with seeking leveraged or inverse investment results, and who plan to actively monitor and manage their positions. There is no guarantee these ETFs will meet their objective. Please visit the Direxion Leveraged and Inverse ETF Education Center, where you will find educational brochures, videos, and a self-paced online course to help you understand if leveraged and inverse ETFs are right for you.
Direxion equips investors who are driven by conviction with ETF solutions built for purpose and fine-tuned for precision. These solutions are available for a broad spectrum of investors, whether executing short-term tactical trades, or investing in thematic strategies. Direxion's reputation is founded on developing products that precisely express market perspectives and allow investors to manage their risk exposure. Founded in 1997, the company has approximately $20.7 billion in assets under management as of June 30, 2022. For more information, please visit www.direxion.com.

Investing in the funds involves a high degree of risk. Unlike traditional ETFs, or even other leveraged and/or inverse ETFs, these leveraged and/or inverse single-stock ETFs track the price of a single stock rather than an index, eliminating the benefits of diversification. Leveraged and inverse ETFs pursue daily leveraged investment objectives, which means they are riskier than alternatives which do not use leverage. They seek daily goals and should not be expected to track the underlying stock’s performance over periods longer than one day. They are not suitable for all investors and should be utilized only by investors who understand leverage risk and who actively manage their investments. The Funds will lose money if the underlying stock’s performance is flat, and it is possible that the Bull Fund will lose money even if the underlying stock's performance increases, and the Bear Fund will lose money even if the underlying stock's performance decreases, over a period longer than a single day.
