This ETF is one of the largest and most popular options for investors looking to achieve broad-based commodity exposure. DBC has the potential to add valuable return enhancement and diversification benefits to traditional stock-and-bond portfolios, but investors should be aware that this ETF invests in futures contracts. That exposes DBC to the nuances of contango, and may complicate the tax picture somewhat. DBC is a fine option for broad commodity exposure, but investors might also want to take a look at "later generation" products such as USCI.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for DBC 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 Commodities with the highest Metric Realtime Rating for each individual field.
