Analyst Report

This ETF offers exposure to the global agribusiness industry, including companies from developed and emerging countries that are engaged in crop production, agricultural supplies, biofuels, machinery, and chemicals. The agribusiness sector could make for an intriguing investment opportunity if demographic trends continue to put pressure on food prices, as many are concerned about severe shortages in the future. Because the agribusiness sector is generally given a small weighting in most broad international ETFs (such as EFA or VWO), CROP could be useful as a satellite holding in a long-term portfolio for those looking to establish exposure to this corner of the market. This ETF can also be an efficient tool for implementing a short term tactical tilt, or as a hedge against the potential uncertainty caused by crop shortages. CROP is one of several ETFs offering exposure to the global agribusiness industry, but has little to no overlap with funds such as MOO and PAGG; this IndexIQ ETF focuses exclusively on small cap stocks, which may maintain a different risk/return profile and deliver access to smaller companies with greater growth potential. CROP provides good balance from a country perspective, including components from more than a dozen different countries (both developed and emerging). The basket of securities is a bit shallow (about 50 stocks), and a few of the names account for sizable portions of the overall portfolio. CROP's expense ratio is reasonable considering the targeted exposure delivered, and comparable to other agribusiness ETFs (MOO may be appealing to those looking for the lowest cost option available, though the difference is relatively small).
