About SOXX ETF
SOXX semiconductors ETF invests in companies that produce semi conductors and provides capped exposure (8% max to any security) to US-listed companies in that industry. Semiconductor chips act as the brains to numerous devices that we rely on today, including smartphones, calculators, computers, and much more. It holds close to 125 securities providing decent diversification.
What ETFdb says about it: Investors should note that this fund dedicates the majority of its assets to medium and large cap funds, meaning that it will be more volatile than a traditional large cap fund, but it also presents strong growth opportunities for those who believe in the semiconductor segment of our nation.
