Asia-focused IPOX exposure records big weekly upside / IPOX 100 U.S (IPXO) lags ahead of quarter-end. Amid higher U.S. rates, continued uncertainty over trade and U.S. Futures & Option expiration, the IPOX Indexes traded mixed last week. While there was significant upside in the portfolios tracking non-U.S. domiciled exposure, including the IPOX Asia-Pacific (IPTA), IPOX China (CNI) and IPOX Japan (IPJP), the IPOX U.S. Indexes (IPXC, IPXO, IPXT) lagged the S&P 500 (SPX) – benchmark for U.S. stocks – reversing the previous week’s strong relative gains. Notable upside in larger-sized China-linked exposure, for example, belonged to educational services provider China Education Group (839 HK), biotech Wuxi Biologics (2269 HK: +10.28%) or China Vanke (2202 HK: +8.56%), while higher rates and strong economic data also propelled key IPOX Japan (IPJP) holdings Financials Japan Post Insurance (7181 JP: +6.97%) and Japan Post Bank (7172 JP: +5.33%), as well as logistics services provider SG Holdings (9143 JP: +4.68%) and leading global professional services firm indeed.com owner “red hot” Recruit Holdings (6098 JP: +4.10%). Amid profit taking after downgrades, revised outlooks, as well as perceived negative legal actions, firms including personal shopping platform operator Stich Fix (SFIX US: -18.02%), German online fashion retailer Zalando (ZAL GY: -16.67%) or IL-based drug maker AbbVie (ABBV US: -3.57%) finished the week with the significant losses.
IPOX Global Microsector Focus: Health Clubs & Fitness IPOs. Amid active M&A in the industry, we note the big post-IPO gains in IPOX holdings U.S.-based health club operator Planet Fitness (PLNT) and Dutch-based Basic Fit (BFIT NA), as well as Italian Fitness equipment maker Technogym (TGYM IM), on top of generational growth firms Nike (NKE) and Adidas (ADS GY).
