Menzer & Hill, P.A. Announces Investigation

The Securities Arbitration Firm of Menzer & Hill, P.A. Announces Investigation Into The Sales Practices Of Broker-Dealers That Solicited Purchases of Inverse and Leveraged Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs)

The Securities Arbitration Firm of Menzer & Hill, P.A. (www.suemyadvisor.com) announced today that it is investigating the sales practices of brokerage firms that solicited investors to buy leveraged and inversed Exchanged-Traded Funds (“ETFs”). Many brokerage firms, through their financial advisors, are soliciting purchases in these securities as investments, with holding periods longer than one day, while others are recommending option strategies on the underlying ETFs. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”), stated in a Regulatory Notice, sent to brokerage firms June 2009, that leveraged and inverse ETFs are “highly complex financial instruments” and “are typically not suitable for retail investors who plan to hold them for more than one trading [day], particularly in volatile markets.” Brokerage firms that failed to adhere to suitability requirements could be held liable to investors that sustained losses in solicited purchases of leveraged and inverse ETFs as a result.

Investors that have purchased leveraged or inverse ETFs through a brokerage account or managed account offered by Merrill Lynch, a subsidiary of Bank of America (NYSE:BAC), Morgan Stanley Smith Barney (NYSE:MS), Wells Fargo Advisors (NYSE:WFC), Ameriprise Financial (NYSE:AMP), UBS (NYSE:UBS), LPL Financial, Raymond James (NYSE:RJF), Edward Jones, or other brokerage firms and have sustained losses should contact the attorneys at the Securities Arbitration Firm of Menzer & Hill, P.A. to determine if they have a claim for a recovery of losses.

Leveraged and inverse ETFs can be volatile and investors may have realized or unrealized losses in the following ETFs year to date, including but not limited to:

DRV down 63% (NYSEArca: DRV);
TMV down 46% (NYSEArca: TMV);
VXX down 44% (NYSEArca: VXX);
SRS down 43% (NYSEArca: SRS);
ZSL down 42% (NYSEArca: ZSL);
GAZ down 38% (NYSEArca: GAZ);
TZA down 36% (NYSEArca: TZA);
UNG down 35% (NYSEArca: UNG);
TBT down 34% (NYSEArca: TBT);
FAZ down 29% (NYSEArca: FAZ); and
UCO down 28% (NYSEArca: UCO).
