Analyst Report

This ETN seeks to replicate an index which is comprised of a single exchange traded futures contract, except during the roll period when the index may be comprised of two futures contracts. Unlike many commodity indices which roll their exposure to the corresponding futures contract on a monthly basis in accordance with a pre-determined roll schedule, the Index may roll into one of a number of futures contracts with varying expiration dates, as selected using the Barclays Capital Pure Beta Series 2 Methodology. This particular ETN focuses in on precious metals including gold, silver, platinum, and palladium. As such it can provide investors direct exposure to an inflation hedge, potentially appreciating as the U.S. dollar weakens and and slumping when price increases slow down. As a result, the fund could see broad appeal from investors looking to establish a hedge in their portfolios. With that being said, there are a number of options in the precious metals space that are far less expensive and do not have the credit risk of an ETN either. Many investors would be better served by taking a closer look at these funds instead of this illlquid ETN.
