Advance Auto Parts Auto Callable Yield Notes  – Complex Investment Product 

According to the prospectus, payments on the notes are not linked to a basket composed of the Funds. Payments on the notes are linked to the performance of each of the securities individually. It is expressed that these specific notes are designed to tailor to investors who seek a higher interest rate, than the yield on a conventional debt security with the same maturity.

The prospectus stated, “Investors should be willing to accept the risk of losing some or all of their principal and the risk that no yield Payment may be made with respect to some or all Review Dates. Investors should also be willing to forgo fixed interest and dividend payments, in exchange for the opportunity to receive yield Payments.”

Understanding Auto Callable Yield Notes

Here’s an explanation of the key characteristics of these structured notes:

Advance Auto Parts Auto Callable Yield Notes are a type of structured note that offers investors the opportunity to earn a higher yield than traditional fixed-income investments. These notes are issued by financial institutions and have a maturity date, but also include a “Call” feature that allows the issuer to redeem the notes early under certain conditions. The notes typically offer a fixed or variable coupon rate, but the coupon payments are contingent on the performance of an underlying asset such as a stock or basket of stocks.

What are the Risks Associated with Auto Callable Yield Notes?

There are several risks to consider when investing in structured notes, and it’s important to take the time to conduct research and understand those risks to avoid financial losses. Those risks could include the performance of the notes, and how they’re directly linked to the least performing common stock within a group of stocks. If the chosen common stock performs poorly during the specified period, it can lead to a reduction or negative return on the notes. Market volatility and changes in the stock’s price can impact the overall performance of the notes.

These notes are typically issued by financial institutions, so investors face the credit risk of the issuer. If the issuer experiences financial difficulties or defaults, investors may face a loss of principal and interest payments. Further, the auto-call feature in these notes gives the issuer the option to redeem the notes early if certain conditions are met. If the notes are called early, investors may miss out on potential future interest payments or potential gains if the underlying common stock continues to appreciate.

The additional interest payments are contingent upon specific conditions being met, which are typically tied to the performance of the underlying common stock, in this case it is linked to Advance Auto Parts common stock. If the conditions are not satisfied, investors may not receive the enhanced interest payments, and their returns could be lower than expected.

In addition, investing in a single common stock, even if it is the least performing among a group, exposes investors to stock-specific risk. Factors such as company performance, management decisions, industry trends, and external events can impact the stock’s value and, consequently, the performance of the notes.

Securities Investigation

The White Law Group is investigating the liability that brokerage firms may have for recommending complex, often extremely high-risk, structured notes such Auto Callable Yield Notes.  Investors should carefully assess these risks, review the offering documents, and seek advice from a financial professional to determine if auto callable yield interest notes linked to the least performing common stock align with their investment objectives and risk tolerance. It’s essential to have a clear understanding of the potential risks and rewards before making investment decisions.

Brokers often pitch structured products, as providing “downside protection” against losses to a related index while allowing modest upside gain potential. Of course, this is only true if the value of the index doesn’t fall below a predetermined price. If the price falls below that point, the losses in structured notes can still be huge. These products typically pay a high fee to the financial advisors that sell them.

Brokerage firms have two main duties in recommending structured callable notes linked to equity investments or indexes.  First, brokerage firms are required to perform adequate due diligence on any product they recommend. Second, brokerage firms are required to ensure that all recommendations made are suitable for their client considering the client’s age, investment experience, net worth, income, and investment objectives.

If a brokerage firm fails to do either of these things, the firm can be held responsible in a FINRA arbitration claim.
