Analyst Report

This ETN will offers exposure to the price of cocoa beans through exchange-traded futures contracts. Cocoa probably flies under the radar of many investors, but may have appeal in certain environments thanks to a growing number of applications and volatile supplies. Given the narrow focus of this product, CHOC probably doesn't make much sense as a component of a long-term buy-and-hold portfolio; it is designed for use as a tactical tool to deliver access towards a very specific corner of the commodity market. Investors seeking more broadly-based exposure to agricultural commodities have a number of options in the Agricultural Commodities ETFdb Category, including DIRT (an ETN) and DBA (an ETF). Several nuances make CHOC unique among agricultural ETPs. First, it should be noted that CHOC is an ETN, meaning that investors are exposed to the credit risk of the issuing institution but will be able to avoid tracking error (which can be a significant issue in many commodity ETPs). The ETN structure may also have some favorable tax features relative to ETFs, especially for investors who intend to establish a position for more than a year. Also noteworthy is the roll frequency of the underlying index; CHOC offers exposure to futures contracts, and as such may not correspond to movements in spot prices for the underlying resources. Unlike many commodity ETPs that roll holdings on a monthly basis, CHOC does not roll exposure on a predetermined schedule; the roll timing is based on a proprietary methodology designed to reduce the impact of contango or backwardation on returns. This feature may make CHOC more appealing to investors looking to establish a position in cocoa over the long term. Those looking for a short-term trading vehicle probably will be better served by a fund like NIB that focuses on shorter maturity futures contracts.
