GSSC is sponsored by Goldman Sachs and currently has nearly $500 million in assets under management, making it one of the average-sized ETFs in the Style Box – Small Cap Blend. The fund seeks to match the performance of the Goldman Sachs ActiveBeta U.S. Small Cap Stock Index before fees and expenses.

For its individual holdings, Eminirus2k (RTYZ1) accounts for about 0.64% of GSSC’s total assets, followed by Crocs Inc (CROX) and Lattice Semiconductor Corp (LSCC).
GSSC Could Perform Well in 2022
The GSSC/USD daily chart shows that the ETF is recovering from a recent slump. The MACD line is still below the neutral zone, while the RSI of 55 indicates that the fund could soon enter the overbought region.
If the momentum achieved in 2021 can be achieved, then GSSC could rally higher over the coming year. The fund could top the $70 mark over the coming trading sessions. GSSC has annual operating expenses of 0.20%, similar to most ETFs in the space. It has a 12-month trailing dividend yield of 1%.
