HOMZ to ring NYSE closing bell on Thursday, August 6, 2020

In a celebration of the fee cut and the ETF’s robust performance since its launch in March 2019, Hoya Capital, the issuer of HOMZ, will ring the closing bell of the NYSE on Thursday.

“As Americans are spending more time than ever in their homes, it has become clear that housing is perhaps the ultimate ‘essential service,’ said Alex Pettee, CFA, President and Director of Research at Hoya Capital. “The U.S. housing industry’s resilient strength has been powered by the long-term tailwinds of favorable millennial-led demographic trends, historically low housing supply, near-record low mortgage rates, and the early signs of a post-pandemic suburban revival.”
