Agri-Bull ETFdb Portfolio Now Available

by on September 16, 2012

The Agri-Bull ETFdb Portfolio  is now available to ETFdb Pro members with a free 7-day trial of the Pro subscription. This new portfolio, one of more than 50 all-ETF model portfolios available at, is designed for investors who wish to overweight exposure to the agricultural sector. The investment strategy may appeal to those who believe this corner of the market will account for a significant portion of GDP growth and stock market appreciation as the global economic recovery picks up [see also Seven Simple & Cheap All-ETF Model Portfolios].

The Agri-Bull ETFdb Portfolio is well-diversified across both broad and niche segments of the agricultural sector, offering exposure to domestic as well as international companies operating in this space. This corner of the economy is characterized by appealing fundamentals and very lucrative returns, although it’s also infamous for exhibiting significant volatility. Spending in the agricultural industry has proven to be a growing share of a country’s GDP especially across developing nations in the Asia Pacific and Latin America regions; favorable demographic trends and increasing rates of urbanization across emerging markets remain key catalysts in driving demand for agricultural goods higher.

At the same time, there is also the benefit of stability offered through this strategy as history has proven that no matter hows sour the economy turns, agriculture will always rebound because food consumption has fairly inelastic demand. This portfolio may be excessively risky for retired investors or those with strict current income needs; the Agri-Bull strategy does not include fixed income holdings, instead this portfolio rounds out exposure to the agricultural commodity market with two futures-based ETNs.

The complete Agri-Bull ETFdb Portfolio is available to ETFdb Pro members or with a free 7-day trial to ETFdb Pro. Also check out our Monthly Dividend ETFdb Portfolio as well as our Consumer Centric ETFdb Portfolio.

Included with the ETFdb Pro subscription are more than 50 all-ETF model portfolios, including both retirement-focused and more tactical themed strategies. To see all that is included, a free sample of the Emerging & Frontier Markets ETFdb Portfolio  is available to all ETFdb readers.
