This popular ETF offers exposure to the long end of the maturity curve, with exposure to all types of bonds that have maturities greater than 10 years. BLV is heavy on both interest rate risk and credit risk, and as such will generally deliver a relatively high expected return. BLV can be a quality pick for investors seeking a one stop shop for longer term bond exposure that likely has a greater yield than a comparable pure T-Bill fund.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for BLV on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating. The "A+ Metric Rated ETF" field, available to ETFdb Pro members, shows the ETF in the Total Bond Market with the highest Metric Realtime Rating for each individual field.
