This unique ETF is the only product on the market that offers investors diversified exposure to a relatively obscure sector of the market; convertible bonds. These securities allow investors to 'convert' their bond notes for equity in the underlying company, potentially allowing investors to benefit from broad increases in stock prices. Additionally, it should be noted that since these notes have the option to convert to equity, they generally pay out smaller yields then their unconvertible brethren. With that being said, the fund still pays out a decent yield comparable to most bonds of similar maturity levels and the long time horizon on many of the instruments should allow the underlying stocks plenty of time to reach their full potential. CWB certainly isn't for everyone but for investors looking to diversify their bond holdings while at the same time leaving them open to at least some level of equity appreciation, this fund could be a solid choice.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for CWB 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 Preferred Stock/Convertible Bonds with the highest Metric Realtime Rating for each individual field.
