Roundhill Esports ETF (NYSE: NERD) +100% Off March Lows | News

NEW YORK, Aug. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The Roundhill BITKRAFT Esports & Digital Entertainment ETF (NYSE: NERD) made a new 52-week high on Monday, August 3, closing at a price of $24.58. As of Monday’s close, NERD has more than doubled (+106.40%) off its 52-week low of $11.91 it traded at on March 16th. NERD is the 13th best performing equity ETF in the U.S. this year (out of 1,394, not including leveraged funds). As of the most recent quarter end on 6/30/2020, NERD was up 35.96% year-over-year and 43.04% since inception (6/4/2019).

Roundhill co-founder Tim Maloney commented: “We believe that the esports and digital entertainment sector is uniquely positioned to perform in today’s environment as the global economy shifts from physical to digital. As a result of global ‘stay-at-home’ orders, second quarter earnings in the sector are likely to be strong, in our view. However, we believe that the recent acceleration of sector growth is representative of a longer-term secular trend, and that gaming will continue to grow well beyond this year.”

NERD seeks to provide exposure to the esports and digital entertainment industry. Top holdings include Chinese livestreaming platforms Huya (HUYA) and Douyu (DOYU), internet giant Tencent (700 HK), and Modern Times Group (MTGB SS), the parent company of esports operators ESL and Dreamhack.
