This ETN gives investors an opportunity to gain exposure to price movements in certain corn, wheat, soybean, and sugar futures contracts. As such, AGF can be an effective tool for investors seeking targeted commodity exposure, a strategy known to perform well during periods of rising inflation. Given this targeted focus, AGF likely doesn't make much sense in a long-term, buy-and-hold portfolio; it is more useful as a shorter-term tactical instrument for expressing a bullish view on the agricultural sector. Investors seeking broad exposure to natural resource prices have several options in the Commodities ETFdb Category, while those looking for targeted exposure to any of the component resources also have ETPs available to them. One particularly noteworthy aspect of AGF is its structure; as an ETN, this product eliminates tracking error; however, investors should be aware that AGF is a debt instrument, exposing investors to the credit risk of the issuing institution. Also, ETNs may be subject to unique tax treatments relative to comparable ETFs such as DBA.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for AGF on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating.
